The Perfect High Priest
1For 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: 2Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity. 3And by reason of this he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. 4And no man taketh this honor to himself, but he that is called by God, as was Aaron:
5So also Christ glorified not himself to be made a high priest; but he that said to him, Thou art my Son, to-day have I begotten thee.
6As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
7Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears to him that was able to save him from death, and was heard, in that he feared; 8Though he was a Son, yet he learned obedience by the things which he suffered; 9And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation to all them that obey him; 10Called by God a high priest after the order of Melchisedec.
Warning against Drifting Away
11Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. 12For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need of one to teach you again which are the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong food. 13For every one that useth milk, is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14But strong food belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
