For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for
things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices
Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that
of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also
himself, to offer for sins.
And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is
of God, as was Aaron.
So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high
but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten
As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for
after the order of Melchisedec.
Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers
supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to
save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the
which he suffered;
And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal
unto all them that obey him;
Called of God an high priest after the order of
Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be
seeing ye are dull of hearing.
For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need

God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word
righteousness: for he is a babe.
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age,
those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both
good and evil.
