Every high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge of things pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
He is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness;
and because of this he must offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people.
