7aIn the days of His flesh, b1He offered up bothprayers and supplications with 2loudcrying and tears to the One 3able to save Him cfrom death, and He dwas heardbecause of His 4piety.
8Although He was 5a Son, He learned6obedience from the things which He suffered.
And having been made7perfect, He became to allthose who obey Him the source of eternalsalvation,
being designated by God as 8a highpriestaccording to 9the order of Melchizedek.
11Concerningehim we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have becomedull of hearing.
For thoughfby thistime you ought to be teachers, you haveneedagain for someone to teach you 10the g11elementaryprinciples of the 12oracles of God, and you have come to need13milk and not solidfood.
For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an 14infant.
But solidfood is for 15the mature, who because of practicehave their senses16trained to 17discerngood and evil.
