The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 For every high priest taken from amongst men is established for men in things relating 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 being able to exercise forbearance towards the ignorant and erring, since he himself also is clothed 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, on account of this [infirmity], he ought, even 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 one takes the honour to himself but [as] called by God, even as Aaron also. 4 No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
5 Thus the Christ also has not glorified himself to be made a high priest; but he who had said to him, *Thou* art my Son, *I* have to-day 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 Even as also in another [place] he says, *Thou* [art] a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedec. 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 both supplications and entreaties to him who was able to save him out of death, with strong crying and tears; (and having been heard because of his piety;) 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 were Son, he learned obedience from the things which he suffered; 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered
9 and having been perfected, became to all them that obey him, author of eternal salvation; 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10 addressed by God [as] high priest according to the order of Melchisedec. 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
11 Concerning whom we have much to say, and hard to be interpreted in speaking [of it], since ye are become dull in hearing. 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.
12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have again need that [one] should teach you what [are] the elements of the beginning 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 partakes of milk [is] unskilled in 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 belongs to full-grown men, who, on account of habit, have their senses exercised for distinguishing both good and evil. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
