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 them that are out of the way; for that 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 by reason of this 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 And no man taketh this honor to himself, but 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 to him, Thou art my Son, to-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 after 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, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears to 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 was a Son, yet 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 made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation to all them that obey him; 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10 Called by God a high priest after the order of Melchisedec. 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, 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 when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need of one to teach you again which [are] the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong 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 useth milk, [is] unskillful 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 food belongeth to them that 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.
