Hebrews 5:5-7 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
5 So Christ did not choose himself to be a high priest. But he was chosen by the One who said to him, `You are my Son, and I am your Father today.'
6 In another place in the holy writings God said, `You are a priest for ever like Melchizedek.'
7 When Jesus was a man, he talked to God who was able to save him from death. He called loudly to him with tears. God heard him because he honoured and respected God.
