Hebrews 4:14-16

ESV 14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. MSG 14 Now that we know what we have - Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God - let's not let it slip through our fingers. ESV 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. MSG 15 We don't have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He's been through weakness and testing, experienced it all - all but the sin. ESV 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. MSG 16 So let's walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.

The Message Bible

Hebrews 5:1-10

ESV 1 For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. MSG 1 Every high priest selected to represent men and women before God and offer sacrifices for their sins ESV 2 He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is beset with weakness. MSG 2 should be able to deal gently with their failings, since he knows what it's like from his own experience. ESV 3 Because of this he is obligated to offer sacrifice for his own sins just as he does for those of the people. MSG 3 But that also means that he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins as well as the people's. ESV 4 And no one takes this honor for himself, but only when called by God, just as Aaron was. MSG 4 No one elects himself to this honored position. He's called to it by God, as Aaron was. ESV 5 So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him, "You are my Son, today I have begotten you"; MSG 5 Neither did Christ presume to set himself up as high priest, but was set apart by the One who said to him, "You're my Son; today I celebrate you!" ESV 6 as he says also in another place, "You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek." MSG 6 In another place God declares, "You're a priest forever in the royal order of Melchizedek." ESV 7 In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. MSG 7 While he lived on earth, anticipating death, Jesus cried out in pain and wept in sorrow as he offered up priestly prayers to God. Because he honored God, God answered him. ESV 8 Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. MSG 8 Though he was God's Son, he learned trusting-obedience by what he suffered, just as we do. ESV 9 And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, MSG 9 Then, having arrived at the full stature of his maturity and having been announced by God as high priest in the order of Melchizedek, ESV 10 being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek. MSG 10 he became the source of eternal salvation to all who believingly obey him.
