Hebrews 5:6New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

just as he says in another place:[a]

“You are a priest forever
    according to the order of Melchizedek.”

Footnotes:

  1. 5:6–8 The author of Hebrews is the only New Testament writer to cite Ps 110:4, here and in Hb 7:17, 21, to show that Jesus has been called by God to his role as priest. Hb 5:7–8 deal with his ability to sympathize with sinners, because of his own experience of the trials and weakness of human nature, especially fear of death. In his present exalted state, weakness is foreign to him, but he understands what we suffer because of his previous earthly experience.
