Hebrews 5

1 For* every high, priest, being taken out of men, is designated to act on behalf of men in things pertaining to God, in order that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices on behalf of sins; 2 he who is able to moderate his emotions with those who are ignorant and are misled, since he himself is also encompassed with weakness; 3 and because of this weakness, he is obligated to offer sacrifices on behalf of sins concerning the people so also concerning himself. 4 And not anyone takes the honor for himself, but he who is called by God, just, as was Aaron.

5 So the Christ also did not glorify himself to become a high, priest, but he who spoke to him, ' You are my Son; I have fathered you* today.' {Psa 2: 7} 6 Just, as he also says in a different Scripture, ' You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.' {Psa 110: 4} 7 Who in the days of his flesh, has offered up both prayers and supplications with a strong outcry and tears to the one who was able to save him from death and having been heard from his piety. 8 Although being a Son, he learned obedience from the things which he suffered; 9 and having been completed, he became the cause of everlasting salvation to all those who are obeying* him; 10 having been addressed by God, as high, priest according to the order of Melchizedek.

11 Concerning whom, much for us to say in speech (also hard to translate {i.e. simplify} ), since you* have become sluggish in hearing. 12 For* you* also ought to be teachers by now because of the time, but you* again have need of one to teach you* what are the fundamental principles of the beginning oracles of God, and have become ones having need of milk and not of solid nourishment. 13 For* everyone who partakes of milk is inexperienced of the word of righteousness; for* he is an infant. 14 But solid nourishment is for the mature ones, from those who, through their habit, have had their senses exercised to the discerning of both good and evil.
