Hebrews 5:1-10 American Standard Version (ASV)
5 For every high priest, being taken from among men, is appointed for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: 2 who can bear gently with the ignorant and erring, for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity; 3 and by reason thereof is bound, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. 4 And no man taketh the honor unto himself, but when he is called of God, even as was Aaron. 5 So Christ also glorified not himself to be made a high priest, but he that spake unto him,
[a]Thou art my Son,
6 as he saith also in another place,
[b]Thou art a priest for ever
7 Who in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him [c]from death, and having been heard for his godly fear, 8 though he was a Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 and having been made perfect, he became unto all them that obey him the [d]author of eternal salvation; 10 named of God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.
