Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 For every high priest taken from among men is ordained 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 have compassion on the ignorant and on those who are outside of the Way, since he himself is also encompassed by 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 hereof, he ought, both for the people and also for himself, to make offering 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 this honor unto himself, except he that is called by God, as was Aaron. 4 No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
5 So also Christ glorified not Himself to be made a high priest, but He that said unto Him, "Thou art My Son; today 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 And 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 Christ, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto Him that was able to save Him from death, and was heard in that He feared, 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 a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered. 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered
9 And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all those who obey Him, 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10 being called by God as 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, which are hard to utter seeing ye are 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 at the time when ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God, and have 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 useth 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 strong meat belongeth to those who are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
