Hebrews 52 He is able to exercise gentleness and forbearance toward the ignorant and erring, since he himself also is liable to moral weakness and physical infirmity. 3 And because of this he is obliged to offer sacrifice for his own sins, as well as for those of the people. 4 Besides, one does not appropriate for himself the honor , but he is called by God and receives it of Him, just as Aaron did. 5 So too Christ (the Messiah) did not exalt Himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed and exalted by Him Who said to Him, You are My Son; today I have begotten You; 6 As He says also in another place, You are a Priest forever after the order (with Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.the rank) of Melchizedek. 7 In the days of His flesh offered up definite, special petitions and supplications with strong crying and tears to Him Who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence toward God . 8 Although He was a Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered 9 And, making Him perfectly , He became the Author and Source of eternal salvation to all those who give heed and obey Him, 10 Being Alexander Souter, Pocket Lexicon.designated and recognized and saluted by God as High Priest after the order (with Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.the rank) of Melchizedek. 11 Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your hearing and sluggish . 12 For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God's Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food. 13 For everyone who continues to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is a mere infant ! 14 But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.
