1 Every for highpriest from men having been taken, on behalf of men is placed over the things relating to the God, so that he may offer gifts both and sacrifices on behalf of sins;
2 to suffer a measure being able with the ignorant ones and erring ones, since also himself surrounds weakness;
3 and on account of this it is fitting, as concerning the people, so also concerning himself to offer on behalf of sins.
4 And not to himself any one takes the honor, but he being called by the God, as even Aaron.
5 Thus and the Anointed not himself did glorify to become a high priest, but the one having spoken to him: A son of me art thou, I today have begotten thee;
6 as also in another he says: Thou a priest for the age, according to the order of Melchizedek.
7 Who in the days of the flesh of himself, prayers both and supplications to him being able to deliver him out of death, with a cry strong and tears having offered, and having been heard from the piety,
8 (though being a son, learned, from what things he suffered, the obedience;
9 and having been perfected he became to those obeying him to all a cause of salvation agelasting,
10 having been declared by the God a highpriest according to the order of Melchizedek.
11 Concerning whom great to us the word and hard to be explained to say, since sluggish ones you have become in the hearing.
12 Even for being obligated to be teachers on account of the time, again need you have of the to teach you, certain the elements of the beginning of the oracles of the God; and you have become need having of milk, and not of solid food.
13 Every one for the partaking of milk, unskilled of a word of righteousness; a babe for he is;
14 for perfect ones but is the solid food, for those by the habit the perceptions having been exercised having for a discrimination of good both and evil.
