For every high priest chosen from among men j is appointed to act on behalf of men k in relation to God,
Πᾶς γὰρ ἀρχιερεὺς ἐξ ἀνθρώπων λαμβανόμενος ὑπὲρ ἀνθρώπων καθίσταται τὰ πρὸς τὸν θεόν,
כָּל כֺּהֵן גָּדוֹל הַלָּקוּחַ מִקֶּרֶב בְּנֵי אָדָם, מְמֻנֶּה לְמַעַן בְּנֵי אָדָם עַל עִנְיְנֵי אֱלֹהִים
l to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
ἵνα προσφέρῃ δῶρά τε καὶ θυσίας ὑπὲρ ἁμαρτιῶν,
כְּדֵי לְהַקְרִיב מְנָחוֹת וּזְבָחִים עַל חֲטָאִים.
m He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward,
μετριοπαθεῖν δυνάμενος τοῖς ἀγνοοῦσιν καὶ πλανωμένοις,
הוּא יָכוֹל לַחֲמֺל עַל הַשּׁוֹגְגִים וְהַתּוֹעִים,
since he himself n is beset with weakness.
ἐπεὶ καὶ αὐτὸς περίκειται ἀσθένειαν
מִשּׁוּם שֶׁגַּם הוּא מֻקָּף חֻלְשָׁה.
Because of this he is obligated to offer sacrifice for his own sins o just as he does for those of the people.
καὶ διʼ αὐτὴν ὀφείλει, καθὼς περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ, οὕτως καὶ περὶ αὐτοῦ προσφέρειν περὶ ἁμαρτιῶν.
מִסִּבָּה זֺאת הוּא חַיָּב לְהַקְרִיב עַל חֲטָאִים גַּם בְּעַד הָעָם וְגַם בְּעַד עַצְמוֹ.
And p no one takes this honor for himself,
καὶ οὐχ ἑαυτῷ τις λαμβάνει τὴν τιμὴν
וְאֵין אִישׁ לוֹקֵחַ לְעַצְמוֹ אֶת הַכָּבוֹד
but only when called by God,
ἀλλὰ καλούμενος ὑπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ
זוּלָתִי הַנִּקְרָא מִטַּעַם אֱלֹהִים,
q just as Aaron was.
καθώσπερ καὶ Ἀαρών.
כְּאַהֲרֺן.
comparison
So also Christ r did not exalt himself to be made a high priest,
Οὕτως καὶ ὁ Χριστὸς οὐχ ἑαυτὸν ἐδόξασεν γενηθῆναι ἀρχιερέα
כֵּן גַּם הַמָּשִׁיחַ לֹא נָטַל לְעַצְמוֹ אֶת הַכָּבוֹד לִהְיוֹת כֺּהֵן גָּדוֹל,
but was appointed by him who said to him,
ἀλλʼ ὁ λαλήσας πρὸς αὐτόν•
אֶלָּא קִבֵּל זֺאת מֵאֵת הָאוֹמֵר אֵלָיו,
s “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”;
υἱός μου εἶ σύ, ἐγὼ σήμερον γεγέννηκά σε•
" בְּנִי אַתָּה, אֲנִי הַיּוֹם יְלִדְתִּיךָ ";
as he says also in another place,
καθὼς καὶ ἐν ἑτέρῳ λέγει•
כְּמוֹ שֶׁגַּם בְּמָקוֹם אַחֵר הוּא אוֹמֵר,
t “You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.”
σὺ ἱερεὺς εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα κατὰ τὴν τάξιν Μελχισέδεκ,
" אַתָּה־כֺהֵן לְעוֹלָם עַל־דִּבְרָתִי מַלְכִּי־צֶדֶק ."
In the days of his flesh,
ὃς ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις τῆς σαρκὸς αὐτοῦ
וּבִימֵי הֱיוֹתוֹ בְּגוּף בָּשָׂר וָדָם,
u Jesus 1 offered up prayers and supplications, v with loud cries and tears, to him w who was able to save him from death,
δεήσεις τε καὶ ἱκετηρίας πρὸς τὸν δυνάμενον σῴζειν αὐτὸν ἐκ θανάτου μετὰ κραυγῆς ἰσχυρᾶς καὶ δακρύων προσενέγκας
הִקְרִיב תְּפִלּוֹת וְתַחֲנוּנִים בִּצְעָקָה גְּדוֹלָה וּבִדְמָעוֹת אֶל הַיָּכוֹל לְהוֹשִׁיעוֹ מִמָּוֶת,
and x he was heard because of his reverence.
καὶ εἰσακουσθεὶς ἀπὸ τῆς εὐλαβείας,
וְאָמְנָם נִשְׁמַע בִּגְלַל יִרְאַת הָאֱלֹהִים שֶׁבּוֹ.
temporal
Although y he was a son,
καίπερ ὢν υἱός,
וְאַף כִּי הָיָה הַבֵּן,
z he learned obedience through what he suffered.
ἔμαθεν ἀφʼ ὧν ἔπαθεν τὴν ὑπακοήν,
מִסִּבְלוֹתָיו לָמַד לְצַיֵּת.
And a being made perfect,
καὶ τελειωθεὶς
וְכַאֲשֶׁר הֻשְׁלַם
he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him,
ἐγένετο πᾶσιν τοῖς ὑπακούουσιν αὐτῷ αἴτιος σωτηρίας αἰωνίου,
הָיָה לְמָקוֹר שֶׁל יְשׁוּעַת עוֹלָמִים לְכָל הַמְצַיְּתִים לוֹ,
being designated by God a high priest b after the order of Melchizedek.
προσαγορευθεὶς ὑπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ ἀρχιερεὺς κατὰ τὴν τάξιν Μελχισέδεκ.
וֵאלֹהִים קָרָא לוֹ, " כֺּהֵן גָּדוֹל עַל־דִּבְרָתִי מַלכִּי־צֶדֶק ."
Is the meaning here Jesus' descent from his heavenly throne to being made man, or his accent to the heaves following his resurrection?
This command is indeed closely in parallel to the command in 14c. This is clear from 10:19-23.
Here we find further explanation for the Ground of 14a-b and 15.
The common thread in these two quotes is the fact we find God the Father declaring Jesus to be High Priest (Son=High, priest=Priest). A study of these psalms reveals both to speak in the grandest of terms about the power, authority and honor of the Messiah Priest-King. However, in both of them it is also strikingly clear that this is not a position that is gained by this Person's own doing, but given to Him by God the Father.
I did not do a BL for 14 + 15 + 16 since in 16 we see "throne of grace." The "throne" portion seems to rest upon 14, whereas the "grace" portion rests upon 15.
Is there any sense of King in this context? What is the begotten part all about in the writer of Hebrew's mind? (5c)
