Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 For every chief priest -- out of men taken -- in behalf of men is set 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 able to be gentle to those ignorant and going astray, since 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 because of this infirmity 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 one to himself doth take the honour, but he who is called by God, as also Aaron: 4 No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
5 so also the Christ did not glorify himself to become chief priest, but He who spake unto him: `My Son thou art, I to-day have 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 also in another [place] He saith, `Thou [art] a priest -- to the age, according to the order of Melchisedek;' 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 both prayers and supplications unto Him who was able to save him from death -- with strong crying and tears -- having offered up, and having been heard in respect to that which 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 through being a Son, did learn by the things which he suffered -- the obedience, 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered
9 and having been made perfect, he did become to all those obeying him a cause of salvation age-during, 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10 having been addressed by God a chief priest, according to the order of Melchisedek, 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
11 concerning whom we have much discourse and of hard explanation to say, since ye 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 even owing to be teachers, because of the time, again ye have need that one teach you what [are] the elements of the beginning of the oracles of God, and ye have become having 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 who is partaking of milk [is] unskilled in the word of righteousness -- for he is an infant, 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.
14 and of perfect men is the strong food, who because of the use are having the senses exercised, unto the discernment both of good and of evil. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
