Hebrews 8:3

Is appointed (kaqistatai). As in Numbers 5:1 . To offer (ei to prosperein). Articular infinitive accusative case with ei as is common while ina prosperh (ina with present active subjunctive) for purpose in Numbers 5:1 , with dwra te kai qusia as there. It is necessary (anagkaion). A moral and logical necessity (from anagkh necessity) as seen in Hebrews 13:46 ; Philippians 1:24 . This high priest also (kai touton). "This one also," no word for high priest, accusative of general reference with the infinitive ecein (have). Somewhat to offer (ti w prosenegkh). Second aorist active subjunctive of prosperw (verse Philippians 3 ). Vulgate aliquid quod offerat. The use of the subjunctive in this relative clause is probably volitive as in Hebrews 21:16 ; Hebrews 12:28 (possibly here merely futuristic), but note o prosperei (present indicative) in Hebrews 9:7 . See Robertson, Grammar, p. 955.
