Hebrews Chapter 5

1 For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for menin things pertaining to Godthat he may offer both gifts andsacrifices for sins

2 Who can have compassion on the ignorantand on them that areout of the wayfor that he himself also is compassed withinfirmity.

3 And by reason hereof he oughtas for the peopleso also forhimselfto offer for sins.

4 And no man taketh this honour unto himselfbut he that iscalled of Godas was Aaron.

5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an highpriestbut he that said unto himThou art my Sonto dayhave I begotten thee.

6 As he saith also in another placeThou art a priest for everafter the order of Melchisedec.

7 Who in the days of his fleshwhen he had offered up prayersand supplications with strong crying and tears unto him thatwas able to save him from deathand was heard in that hefeared

8 Though he were a Sonyet learned he obedience by the thingswhich he suffered

9 And being made perfecthe became the author of eternalsalvation unto all them that obey him
