The authority and honour of our Saviour's priesthood.
Hebrews 5:1 For every hye prest that is taken from amoge men is ordeyned for men in thynges pertaynynge to god: to offer gyftes and sacryfyses for synne: Hebrews 5:2 which can have compassion on the ignoraunt and on them that are out of the waye because that he him silfe also is compased with infirmitie: Hebrews 5:3 For the which infirmities sake he is bounde to offer for synnes as well for hys awne parte as for the peoples. Hebrews 5:4 And no man taketh honour vnto him silfe but he that is called of God as was Aaron. Hebrews 5:5 Even so lykewise Christ glorified not him silfe to be made the hye prest: but he that sayde vnto him: thou arte my sonne this daye begat I the glorified him. Hebrews 5:6 As he also in another place speaketh: Thou arte a prest for ever after the order of Melchisedech. Hebrews 5:7 Which in the dayes of his flesshe did offer vp prayers and sup plicacions with stronge cryinge and teares vnto him that was able to save him from deeth: and was also hearde because of his godlines. Hebrews 5:8 And though he were Goddes sonne yet learned he obediece by tho thynges which he suffered Hebrews 5:9 and was made parfaite and the cause of eternall saluacion vnto all them that obey him: Hebrews 5:10 and is called of God an hye prest after the order of Melchisedech.
Negligence in the knowledge thereof is reproved.
Hebrews 5:11 Wherof we have many thynges to saye which are harde to be vttered: because ye are dull of hearinge. Hebrews 5:12 For when as cocerninge ye tyme ye ought to be teachers yet have ye nede agayne that we teache you the fyrst principles of the worde of god: and are become soche as have nede of mylke and not of stronge meate: Hebrews 5:13 For every man that is feed with mylke is inexperte in the worde of rightewesnes. For he is but a babe. Hebrews 5:14 But stronge meate belongeth to them that are parfecte which thorow custome have their wittes exercised to iudge both good and evyll also.
