1 FOR every high priest is taken from among men and appointed their representative before God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. 2He is able to bear patiently with the ignorant and erring, since he too is beset by weakness; 3and because of this he is bound to make sin-offerings for himself as well as for the people. 4Moreover nobody assumes the office on his own authority: he is called by God, just as Aaron was. 5So it is with Christ: he did not confer on himself the glory of becoming high priest; it was granted by God, who said to him, ‘You are my son; today I have become your father’; 6as also in another place he says, ‘You are a priest for ever, in the order of Melchizedek.’ 7In the course of his earthly life he offered up prayers and petitions, with loud cries and tears, to God who was able to deliver him from death. Because of his devotion his prayer was heard: 8son though he was, he learned obedience through his sufferings, 9and, once perfected, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, 10and by God he was designated high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

11 ABOUT Melchizedek we have much to say, much that is difficult to explain to you, now that you have proved so slow to learn. 12By this time you ought to be teachers, but instead you need someone to teach you the ABC of God's oracles over again. It comes to this: you need milk instead of solid food. 13Anyone who lives on milk is still an infant, with no experience of what is right. 14Solid food is for adults, whose perceptions have been trained by long use to discriminate between good and evil.
