Hebrews Chapter 5

Heb. 5:1 For every high priest chosen from among men is inaugurated for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:

Heb. 5:2 who can be moderate on the ignorant, and on them that are wandering; for he himself also is encompassed with weaknesses.

Heb. 5:3 And for this reason he is obligated, concerning the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.

Heb. 5:4 And no man chooses this honor for himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.

Heb. 5:5 So also Christ glorified not Himself to be made a high priest; but He that said to Him, You are My Son, today have I begotten You.

Heb. 5:6 As He says also in another place, You are a priest into the New Covenant Age after the order of Melchizedek.

Heb. 5:7 This One in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto Him that was able to save Him out of death, and was heard in that He was devoted;

Heb. 5:8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered;

Heb. 5:9 and being made complete, He became the source of perpetual salvation to all them that are obeying Him;

Heb. 5:10 called of God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.

Heb. 5:11 Concerning whom we have many things to say, and difficult to interpret, seeing you are obtuse in hearing.

Heb. 5:12 For by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again the basic parts of the beginning of the oracles of God; and have become such that have need of milk, and not of solid food.

Heb. 5:13 For everyone that uses milk is inexperienced in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe that cannot speak.

Heb. 5:14 But solid food belongs to those that are fully grown, even those who through experience have their intuitive powers trained to discern both good and evil.
