Hebrews 5

1 For every chief-priest from men received in behalf of men is put in charge of the [things] towards God, in order that he offer gifts and sacrifices in behalf of sins, 2 being able to be dealing-gently with those being ignorant and deceived, since he also is subject to weakness, 3 and because of it he ought, just as concerning the people, likewise also concerning himself to be offering concerning sins. 4 And not for himself do any receive honor, but being called by God, just as also Aaron. 5 Likewise also Christ did not glorify himself to become chief-priest, but the [one] having said to him:
You are my son, today have I begotten you.

6 Just as he also says elsewhere:

You are [a] priest to eternity
According to the manner of Melchizedek.

7 Who in the days of his flesh having offered entreaties and supplications towards the [one] able to be delivering him from death, with loud cries and tears, and having been heard from awe, although being son, he learned obedience from what he suffered, 9 and having been completed1 he became to all those obeying him the source of eternal deliverance, 10 having been designated by God chief-priest according to the manner of Melchizedek. 11 About whom we have much to say and hard to be interpreted, since you have become dull of hearing. 12 For owing to the time you ought to be teachers, you have need again that [one] teach you the elements of the beginning of the sayings of God, and you have become [those] needing milk and not solid food. 13 For all having milk [are] inexperienced in the word of justice, for he is [an] infant. 14 But solid food belongs to the complete2, those who through habit have trained their senses to distinguish good and evil.
