Hebrews 5:1-3 New English Translation (NET Bible)

For every high priest is taken from among the people[a] and appointed[b] to represent them before God,[c] to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal compassionately with those who are ignorant and erring, since he also is subject to weakness, and for this reason he is obligated to make sin offerings for himself as well as for the people.


  1. Hebrews 5:1 tn Grk “from among men,” but since the point in context is shared humanity (rather than shared maleness), the plural Greek term ἀνθρώπων (anthrōpōn) has been translated “people.”
  2. Hebrews 5:1 tn Grk “who is taken from among people is appointed.”
  3. Hebrews 5:1 tn Grk “appointed on behalf of people in reference to things relating to God.”
