Hebrews 5
Worsley's New Testament Par ▾ 

The Perfect High Priest

1For every high-priest taken from among men, is appointed for the sake of men in things relating to God, that he may offer gifts and sacrifices for sins: 2who can have due compassion on the ignorant and those that are going astray; seeing he himself also is surrounded with infirmity: 3and for this reason he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer sacrifice for sins. 4And no one taketh this honor to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was.

5So also Christ did not glorify himself to be made an high-priest; but He that said unto Him, "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee."

6As He saith also in another place, "Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec."

7Who in the days of his flesh, offered prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears, to Him that was able to save Him from death, and was heard in what He feared; 8but though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered: and being thus perfected, 9He became the author of eternal salvation to all that obey Him: 10having been declared by God an high-priest after the order of Melchisedec.

Milk and Solid Food
(1 Corinthians 3:1–9)

11Concerning whom we have much to say and difficult to be explained, since ye are become dull of hearing. 12For whereas ye ought for the time to be teachers of others, ye have need again of some one to teach you the first rudiments of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk and not of solid food. 13For every one that wanteth milk, is unacquainted with the doctrine of justification; for he is an infant: 14but firm food is for persons come to age, who by habit have their senses exercised to a discernment both of good and evil.
