Hebrews 5:1-3

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