Qualifications for High Priesthood


1 For every high priest taken from among men ais appointed for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins.
2 He can 1have compassion on those who are ignorant and going astray, since he himself is also subject to aweakness.
3 Because of this he is required as for the people, so also for ahimself, to offer sacrifices for sins.
4 And no man takes this honor to himself, but he who is called by God, just as aAaron was.

A Priest Forever

5 aSo also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him:

b“You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.”

6 As He also says in another place:

a“You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek”;

7 who, in the days of His flesh, when He had aoffered up prayers and supplications, bwith vehement cries and tears to Him cwho was able to save Him from death, and was heard dbecause of His godly fear,
8 though He was a Son, yet He learned aobedience by the things which He suffered.
9 And ahaving been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,
10 called by God as High Priest

Spiritual Immaturity

12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the 1oracles of God; and you have come to need amilk and not solid food.
13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is aa babe.
14 But solid food belongs to those who are 1of full age, that is, those who by reason of 2use have their senses exercised ato discern both good and evil.

The Peril of Not Progressing


1 Therefore, aleaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to 1perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from bdead works and of faith toward God,
2 aof the doctrine of baptisms, bof laying on of hands, cof resurrection of the dead, dand of eternal judgment.
3 And this 1we will do if God permits.
4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted athe heavenly gift, and bhave become partakers of the Holy Spirit,
5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,
6 1if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, asince they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, areceives blessing from God;
8 abut if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

A Better Estimate

9 But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner.
10 For aGod is not unjust to forget byour work and 1labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have cministered to the saints, and do minister.
11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence ato the full assurance of hope until the end,
12 that you do not become 1sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience ainherit the promises.

God’s Infallible Purpose in Christ

13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, aHe swore by Himself,
14 saying, a“Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.”
15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the apromise.
16 For men indeed swear by the greater, and aan oath for confirmation is for them an end of all dispute.
17 Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to athe heirs of promise bthe 1immutability of His counsel, 2confirmed it by an oath,
18 that by two 1immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to alie, we 2might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope bset before us.
19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, aand which enters the Presence behind the veil,
20 awhere the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, bhaving become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

An Exuberant Declaration of Faith

A Psalm of David.

1 THE LORD is my alight and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The bLORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me To aeat1 up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.
3 aThough an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.

4 aOne thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may bdwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the 1beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
5 For ain the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall bset me high upon a rock.

6 And now amy head shall be 1lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of 2joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.

8 When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.”
9 aDo not hide Your face from me; Do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; Do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10 aWhen my father and my mother forsake me, Then the LORD will take care of me.

11 aTeach me Your way, O LORD, And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries; For afalse witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence.
13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD aIn the land of the living.

14 aWait1 on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!
