Hebrews 5
A Faithful Version

1For every high priest, being taken from among men to act in behalf of men, is appointed to serve in the things pertaining to God in order that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins; 2And he is able to deal gently with those who sin in ignorance and those who have been led astray, since he himself is also encumbered with many weaknesses. 3And because of these weaknesses, he is obligated also to offer sacrifices for his own sins, exactly as he does for the people. 4Now no man takes the honor of the high priesthood upon himself, but only he who is called by God, in the same way as Aaron also was called.

5In this same manner also, Christ did not glorify Himself to become a High Priest, but He Who said to Him, "You are My Son; today I have begotten You."

6Even as He also says in another place, "You are a Priest forever according to the order of Melchisedec";

7Who, in the days of His flesh, offered up both prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears to Him Who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because He feared God. 8Although He was a Son, yet He learned obedience from the things that He suffered; 9And having been perfected, He became the Author of eternal salvation to all those who obey Him, 10After He had been designated by God as High Priest according to the order of Melchisedec;

11Concerning Whom we have much to say and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. 12For truly, by this time you ought to be teachers, but instead you need to have someone teach you again what are the beginning principles of the oracles of God, and have become those in need of milk, and not of solid food. 13For everyone who is partaking of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness because he is an infant. 14But solid food is for those who are fully grown, who through repeated practice have had their senses trained to discern between good and evil.
