High Priests Are Called By God From Among Men To Offer Sacrifices For Sins
5 For every high priest being taken from-among men is appointed for people in the things pertaining to God, in order that he might offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins— 2 being able to deal-gently with the ones being ignorant and going-astray since he himself is also surrounded with weakness. 3 And because of it[a], he is obligated to be offering sacrifices for sins— just as for the people, so also for himself. 4 And one does not take the honor to himself, but receives it being called by God, just as also Aaron.

And you have become ones having a need of milk and not of solid[t] food. 13 For everyone partaking of milk is inexperienced in the word of[u] righteousness, for he is an infant. 14 But the solid food is for the mature— the ones because of habit[v] having their faculties[w] trained for discernment of both good and evil.
