Hebrews 5

LEB 1 For every high priest taken from among men is appointed on behalf of people in the things relating to God, in order that he can offer both gifts and sacrifices on behalf of sins, NIV 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. LEB 2 being able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and led astray, since he himself also is surrounded by weakness, NIV 2 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness. LEB 3 and because of it he is obligated to offer [sacrifices] for sins {for himself also, as well as for the people}. NIV 3 This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people. LEB 4 And someone does not take for himself the honor, but is called by God, just as Aaron also [was]. NIV 4 No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was. LEB 5 Thus also Christ did not glorify himself to become high priest, but the one who said to him, "You are my Son, today I have begotten you,"<note: A quotation from Ps 2:7> NIV 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. " LEB 6 just as also in another [place] he says, "You [are] a priest {forever}<note: Literally "for the age"> according to the order of Melchizedek,"<note: A quotation from Ps 110:4> NIV 6 And he says in another place, "You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek." LEB 7 who in the days of his flesh offered up both prayers and supplications, with loud crying and tears, to the one who was able to save him from death, and he was heard as a result of his reverence. NIV 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. LEB 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered, NIV 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered LEB 9 and being perfected, he became the source of eternal salvation to all those who obey him, NIV 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him LEB 10 being designated by God a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek. NIV 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek. LEB 11 Concerning this {we have much to say and it is difficult to explain}, since you have become sluggish in hearing. NIV 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn. LEB 12 For indeed, [although you] ought to be teachers {by this time}, you have need of someone to teach you again the beginning elements of the oracles of God, and {you have need of} milk, not solid food. NIV 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! LEB 13 For everyone who partakes of milk [is] unacquainted with the message of righteousness, because he is an infant. NIV 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. LEB 14 But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have trained their faculties for the distinguishing of both good and evil. NIV 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
