Hebrews 5:1-3 The Passion Translation (TPT)

A King-Priest like Melchizedek

For every High Priest was chosen from among the people and appointed to represent them before God by presenting their gifts to God and offering sacrifices on their behalf. Since the High Priest is also one who is clothed in weakness, he humbles himself[a] by showing compassion to those who are ignorant of God’s ways and stray from them. And for this reason, he has to not only present the sin offerings of others, but also to bring a sin offering for himself.


  1. Hebrews 5:2 As translated from the Aramaic. There is an alternate translation of the Aramaic which reads “He [Christ] humbled himself and took the sorrows of those who knew nothing and were lost, for he was also clothed in frailty [humanity].”
