Hebrews 5

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
HEB 5:1 For every chief priest -- out of men taken -- in behalf of men is set in things `pertaining' to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins,

HEB 5:2 able to be gentle to those ignorant and going astray, since himself also is compassed with infirmity;

HEB 5:3 and because of this infirmity he ought, as for the people, so also for himself to offer for sins;

HEB 5:4 and no one to himself doth take the honour, but he who is called by God, as also Aaron:

HEB 5:5 so also the Christ did not glorify himself to become chief priest, but He who spake unto him: `My Son thou art, I to-day have begotten thee;'

HEB 5:6 as also in another `place' He saith, `Thou `art' a priest -- to the age, according to the order of Melchisedek;'

HEB 5:7 who in the days of his flesh both prayers and supplications unto Him who was able to save him from death -- with strong crying and tears -- having offered up, and having been heard in respect to that which he feared,

HEB 5:8 through being a Son, did learn by the things which he suffered -- the obedience,

HEB 5:9 and having been made perfect, he did become to all those obeying him a cause of salvation age-during,

HEB 5:10 having been addressed by God a chief priest, according to the order of Melchisedek,

HEB 5:11 concerning whom we have much discourse and of hard explanation to say, since ye have become dull of hearing,

HEB 5:12 for even owing to be teachers, because of the time, again ye have need that one teach you what `are' the elements of the beginning of the oracles of God, and ye have become having need of milk, and not of strong food,

HEB 5:13 for every one who is partaking of milk `is' unskilled in the word of righteousness -- for he is an infant,

HEB 5:14 and of perfect men is the strong food, who because of the use are having the senses exercised, unto the discernment both of good and of evil.
