Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up 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 have compassion on them that are ignorant and that err: because 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 therefore he ought, 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 Neither doth any man take the honour to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was. 4 No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
5 So Christ also did not glorify himself, that he might be made a high priest: but he that said 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, according to the order of Melchisedech. 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, with a strong cry and tears, offering up prayers and supplications to him that was able to save him from death, was heard for 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 And whereas indeed he was the Son of God, he learned obedience by the things which he suffered. 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered
9 And being consummated, he became, to all that obey him, the cause of eternal salvation: 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10 Called by God a high priest, according to the order of Melchisedech. 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
11 Of whom we have much to say and hard to be intelligibly uttered: because you are become weak to hear. 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.
12 For whereas for the time you ought to be masters, you have need to be taught again what are the first elements of the words of God: and you are become such as have need of milk and not of strong meat. 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 is a partaker of milk is unskilful in the word of justice: for he is a little child. 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.
14 But strong meat is for the perfect: for them who by custom have their senses exercised to the discerning of good and evil. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
