Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 For every high priest taken from men is appointed in service to God for the people, to 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 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is also subject 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 this, he must make a sin offering for himself 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 on himself; instead, a person is called by God, just as Aaron was. 4 No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
5 In the same way, the Messiah did not exalt Himself to become a high priest, but 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 also said in another passage, You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek. 6 And he says in another place, "You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek."
7 During His earthly life, He offered prayers and appeals, with loud cries and tears, to the One who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence. 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 a Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered. 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered
9 After He was perfected, He became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10 and He was declared by God a high priest "in the order of Melchizedek." 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
11 We have a great deal to say about this, and it's difficult to explain, since you have become slow to understand. 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.
12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of God's revelation. You need milk, not 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 Now everyone who lives on milk is inexperienced with the message about righteousness, because he is an infant. 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-for those whose senses have been trained 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.
