The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Every high priest selected to represent men and women before God and offer sacrifices for their 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 should be able to deal gently with their failings, since he knows what it's like from his own experience. 2 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness.
3 But that also means that he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins as well as the people's. 3 This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people.
