From Textus Receptus

  • 1 Because, every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins.
  • 2 He can have compassion on those who are ignorant and on those who are going astray, since he himself is also subject to weakness.
  • 3 And because of this he ought, just as for the people so also for himself, to offer for sins.
  • 4 And no man takes this honor to himself, but he who is called by God, just as Aaron was.
  • 5 So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become a High Priest, but it was He who said to Him: “You are My Son, today I have begotten You.”
  • 6 As He also says in another place: “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek”;
  • 7 who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with strong cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because He had reverence,
  • 8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.
  • 9 And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,
  • 10 called by God as High Priest “according to the order of Melchizedek,”
  • 11 of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing.
  • 12 Because, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you require that someone teaches you again what are the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have become such as have need of milk and not solid food.
  • 13 Because, everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, because he is a babe.
  • 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
