Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Every high priest is taken from the people and put in charge of things that relate to God for their sake, in order to offer 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 The high priest is able to deal gently with the ignorant and those who are misled since he himself is prone to weakness. 2 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness.
3 Because of his weakness, he must offer sacrifices for his own sins as well as for the people. 3 This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people.
4 No one takes this honor for themselves but takes it only when they are called by God, just like Aaron. 4 No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
5 In the same way Christ also didn't promote himself to become high priest. Instead, it was the one who said to him, You are my Son. Today I have become your Father, 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 also says in another place, You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek. 6 And he says in another place, "You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek."
7 During his days on earth, Christ offered prayers and requests with loud cries and tears as his sacrifices to the one who was able to save him from death. He was heard because of his godly devotion. 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 Although he was a Son, he learned obedience from what he suffered. 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered
9 After he had been made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for everyone who obeys him. 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10 He was appointed by God to be a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek. 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
11 We have a lot to say about this topic, and it's difficult to explain, because you have been lazy and you haven't been listening. 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.
12 Although you should have been teachers by now, you need someone to teach you an introduction to the basics about God's message. You have come to the place where you need milk instead 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 Everyone who lives on milk is not used to the word of righteousness, because they are babies. 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.
14 But solid food is for the mature, whose senses are trained by practice to distinguish between good and evil. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
