Hebrews 5:11-14 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 Of whom there is to us a great word for to say, and able to be expounded, for ye be made feeble to hear.

12 For when ye ought to be masters for a time, again ye need that ye be taught, which be the letters of the beginning of God's words [which be the elements, or letters, of the beginning of God's words]. And ye be made those, to whom is need of milk, and not [of] firm meat.

13 For each that is partner of milk, is without part of the word of rightwiseness, for he is a little child.

14 But of perfect men is firm meat, of them that for custom have [their] wits exercised to discretion of good and of evil [of good and evil].

Hebrews 5:11-14 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

11 About this we have many things to say, which are hard to explain because you are dull of hearing. 12 For when as concerning the time you ought to be teachers, yet you need us to again teach you the first principles of the word of God, and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For everyone who is fed with milk is inexpert in the word of righteousness. For he is but a babe. 14 But strong meat belongs to those who are of full age, who through regular use have their wits exercised to judge both good and evil also.

Hebrews 5:11-14 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 [a]Of whom we have many things to say, which are hard to be uttered, because ye are dull of hearing.

12 [b]For when as concerning the time ye ought to be teachers, yet have ye need again that we teach you what are the first principles of the word of God: and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

13 For everyone that useth milk, is inexpert in the [c]word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of age, which through long custom have their [d]wits exercised, to discern both good and evil.

Hebrews 5:11-14 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. 12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
