1For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in the things that appertain to God, that he may offer up gifts and sacrifices for sins:2Who can have compassion on them that are ignorant and that err: because he himself also is compassed with infirmity.3And therefore he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.4Neither doth any man take the honour to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was.5So Christ also did not glorify himself, that he might be made a high priest: but he that said unto him: Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten thee.6As he saith also in another place: Thou art a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchisedech.7Who in the days of his flesh, with a strong cry and tears, offering up prayers and supplications to him that was able to save him from death, was heard for his reverence.8And whereas indeed he was the Son of God, he learned obedience by the things which he suffered.9And being consummated, he became, to all that obey him, the cause of eternal salvation:10Called by God a high priest, according to the order of Melchisedech.
18And the disciples of John and the Pharisees used to fast. And they come and say to him: Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast; but thy disciples do not fast?19And Jesus saith to them: Can the children of the marriage fast, as long as the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.20But the days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them: and then they shall fast in those days.21No man seweth a piece of raw cloth to an old garment: otherwise the new piecing taketh away from the old, and there is made a greater rent.22And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: otherwise the wine will burst the bottles, and both the wine will be spilled and the bottles will be lost. But new wine must be put into new bottles.
