World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 For every high priest, being taken from among men, is appointed 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 The high priest can deal gently with those who are ignorant and going astray, because he himself is also surrounded with 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 offer sacrifices for sins for the people, as well as for himself. 3 This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people.
4 No man takes this honor on himself, but he is called by God, just like Aaron was. 4 No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
5 So also Christ didn't glorify himself to be made a high priest, but he 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 As he says also in another place, "You are a priest forever, After the order of Melchizedek." 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 prayers and petitions with strong crying and tears to him who was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear, 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 learned obedience by the things which he suffered; 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered
9 and having been made perfect, he became to all of those who obey him the author of eternal salvation, 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10 named by God 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 words to say, and hard to interpret, seeing you have become 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 by reason of the time you ought to be teachers, you again need to have someone teach you the rudiments of the first principles of the oracles of God. You have come to need milk, and 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 For everyone who lives on milk is not experienced in the word of righteousness, for he is a baby. 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.
14 But solid food is for full grown men, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
