American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 For every high priest, being taken from among men, is appointed for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: 1 Every high priest is selected from among men and is appointed to represent them in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
2 who can bear gently with the ignorant and erring, for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity; 2 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness.
3 and by reason thereof is bound, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. 3 This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people.
4 And no man taketh the honor unto himself, but when he is called of God, even as was Aaron. 4 No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
5 So Christ also glorified not himself to be made a high priest, but he that spake unto him, Thou art my Son, This day have I begotten thee: 5 So Christ also did not take upon himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to him, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father. "
6 as he saith also in another [place,] Thou art a priest for ever After the order of Melchizedek. 6 And he says in another place, "You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek."
7 Who in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear, 7 During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.
8 though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered; 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered
9 and having been made perfect, he became unto all them that obey him the author of eternal salvation; 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10 named of God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek. 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard of interpretation, seeing ye are become dull of hearing. 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.
12 For when by reason of the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need again that some one teach you the rudiments of the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of solid food. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God's word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!
13 For every one that partaketh of milk is without experience of the word of righteousness; for he is a babe. 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.
14 But solid food is for fullgrown men, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
