Hebrews 4:14-5:10 ALT
(14) Therefore, having a great High Priest [who] has passed through the heavens-Jesus, the Son of God-let us be holding fast our confession. (15) For we do not have a High Priest [who is] unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but [One] having been tried in all [respects] in the same way [we are, yet] without sin. (16) Therefore, let us be approaching with confidence [or, a joyful sense of freedom] to the throne of grace, so that we shall receive mercy and find grace for well-timed help.
Hebrews 5:1-10 ALT
(1) For every High Priest being taken from [among] people is appointed on behalf of people in the [things pertaining] to God, so that he shall offer both gifts and sacrifices on behalf of sins, (2) being able to be dealing gently [with] the ones failing to understand and being led astray [fig., being deceived], since he himself is also being subject to weakness. (3) And because of this [weakness] he must, just as for the people, in the same manner also for himself, to be offering [sacrifices] for sins. (4) And no one takes the honor to himself, _but_ [he receives it] when being called by God, just as also Aaron [was]. (5) In the same way also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, _but_ the One having said to Him, "_You_ are My Son, Today I have begotten You." [Psalm 2:7] (6) Just as He also says in another [place], "You [are] a Priest into the age [fig., forever] according to the order of Melchisedek;" [Psalm 110:4] (7) who in the days of His flesh having offered up with loud crying and tears both prayers and petitions to the One being able to be saving Him from death, and having been heard due to His godly fear [or, piety], (8) although being a Son, He learned obedience from what He suffered. (9) And having been made perfect, He became to all the ones obeying Him [the] source of eternal salvation, (10) having been designated by God [as] a High Priest "according to the order of Melchisedek," [Psalm 110:4]
[Psalms 2:7 LITV
(7) I will declare concerning the statute of Jehovah: He said to Me, You are My Son. Today I have begotten You.
Psalms 110:4 LITV
(4) Jehovah has sworn and will not repent: You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.]

Hebrews 4:14-5-10 BBE
(14) Having then a great high priest, who has made his way through the heavens, even Jesus the Son of God, let us be strong in our faith. (15) For we have not a high priest who is not able to be touched by the feelings of our feeble flesh; but we have one who has been tested in all points as we ourselves are tested, but without sin. (16) Then let us come near to the seat of grace without fear, so that mercy may be given to us, and we may get grace for our help in time of need.
Hebrews 5:1-10 BBE
(1) Every high priest who is taken from among men is given his position to take care of the interests of men in those things which have to do with God, so that he may make offerings for sins. (2) He is able to have feeling for those who have no knowledge and for those who are wandering from the true way, because he himself is feeble; (3) And being feeble, he has to make sin-offerings for himself as well as for the people. (4) And no man who is not given authority by God, as Aaron was, takes this honour for himself. (5) In the same way Christ did not take for himself the glory of being made a high priest, but was given it by him who said, You are my Son, this day I have given you being: (6) As he says in another place, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. (7) Who in the days of his flesh, having sent up prayers and requests with strong crying and weeping to him who was able to give him salvation from death, had his prayer answered because of his fear of God. (8) And though he was a Son, through the pain which he underwent, the knowledge came to him of what it was to be under God's orders; (9) And when he had been made complete, he became the giver of eternal salvation to all those who are under his orders; (10) Being named by God a high priest of the order of Melchizedek.
