5 1 First he showeth the duty of the high Priest: 5 Secondly, that Christ is appointed of God to be our high Priest, 7 and that he hath fulfilled all things belonging thereunto.
1 For [a]every high Priest is taken from among men, and is ordained for men, in things pertaining to God, [b]that he may offer both [c]gifts and [d]sacrifices for sins.
2 Which is [e]able sufficiently to have compassion [f]on them that are ignorant, and that are out of the way, because that he also is [g]compassed with infirmity,
3 And for the same sake he is bound to offer for sins, as well for his own part, as for the peoples.
Hebrews 5:1The first part of the first comparison of Christ’s high Priesthood, with Aaron’s: Other high Priests are taken from among men, and are called after the order of men.
Hebrews 5:1The first part of the second comparison, Others as weak: are made high Priests, to the end that feeling the same infirmity in themselves which is in all the rest of the people, they should in their own and the people’s name offer gifts and sacrifices, which are witnesses of common faith, and repentance.
