1 For every high priest who is from among men, on the behalf of men, standeth over those things which are of Aloha, to offer oblation and sacrifices for sins:
2 and (is one) who can humble himself, and suffer with those who know not and err, since he also himself with infirmity is clothed.
3 And on this account he is obligated as on the behalf of the people, so (also) for himself, to offer up for his sins.
4 Yet no man to himself taketh the honour, but he who is called by Aloha, as of Aharun .
5 Thus also the Meshiha glorified not himself to be a High Priest; but He who said to him, Thou art my Son, I to-day have begotten thee.
6 So, too, in another place he saith, Thou art the Priest for ever, after the likeness of Malki-Zedek.
7 When also with flesh he had been clothed, prayer and supplication, with a powerful cry, and with tears, he offered up unto Him who was able from death to revive him, and was heard.
8 And though he was the Son, yet from the fear and the sufferings which he sustained he learned obedience.
9 And so was he perfected, and became unto all them who obey him the Cause of eternal salvation;
10 and was named by God, The High Priest after the likeness of Malki-Zedek.
11 But concerning this Malki-Zedek himself, we have much discourse to utter, and hard to explain, because ye are infirm in your hearing.
12 For ye ought to be teachers, on account of the time by you in learning; but now ye have need again to be taught those which are the first scriptures of the beginningwords of Aloha; and need have ye for milk, and not for solid food.
13 But every one whose food is milk is not versed in the doctrine of righteousness, because he is a babe.
14 But for the perfect is solid food; those, (namely,) who, because exercised, have trained their senses to distinguish the good and the evil.
