1 For every high priest taken from among men is a for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and b for sins:
2 Who can have a on the ignorant, and on them that are b; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
3 And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for a.
4 And no man taketh this a unto himself, but he that is b of God, as was c.
5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my a, to day have I begotten thee.
6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a a b after the order of c.
7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up a and supplications with b and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard c;
8 Though he were a Son, yet a he b by the things which he c;
9 And being made a, he became the b of eternal c unto all them that obey him;
10 a of God an b after the order of Melchisedec.
11 Of whom we have many things to say, and a to be b, seeing ye are dull of c.
12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of a, and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that useth a is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat 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.
