Chinese Contemporary Bible (Simplified)

希伯来书 5

1从人间选出来的大祭司,都是受委任代表人办理与上帝有关的事,为人的罪向上帝献上礼物和赎罪祭。 他能体谅那些无知和迷失的人,因为他自己也有人性的软弱。 所以,他不但要为众人的罪献祭,也要为自己的罪献祭。 没有人能自取这大祭司的尊荣,只有像亚伦一样蒙上帝呼召的人才可以做大祭司。

同样,基督也没有自取荣耀做大祭司,是上帝对祂说:

“你是我的儿子,
我今日成为你父亲。”

在圣经的另一处,上帝又说:

“你照麦基洗德的模式永远做祭司。”

基督在世为人的时候,曾经声泪俱下地祈求能救祂脱离死亡的上帝。祂因为敬虔而蒙了应允。 基督虽然是上帝的儿子,仍然从所受的苦难中学习了顺服。 祂既然达到了纯全的地步,就成了永恒救恩的源头,使所有顺服祂的人都得到拯救。 10 上帝照着麦基洗德的模式立祂做大祭司。

信徒要长进

11 关于这方面的事,我们还有很多话要说,但因为你们已经听不进去,很难向你们解释。 12 按你们学习的时间来算,你们本该做别人的老师了,可惜你们还需要别人向你们传授上帝话语的基本道理,成了不能吃干粮、只能吃奶的人。 13 因为只能吃奶的人还是婴孩,不熟习仁义的道理。 14 干粮是给成年人吃的,他们的心思历经锻炼,能够分辨善恶。

Hebrews 5

1Every high priest is selected from among the people and is appointed to represent the people in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness. This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people. And no one takes this honour on himself, but he receives it when called by God, just as Aaron was.

In the same way, Christ did not take on himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to him,

‘You are my Son;
    today I have become your Father.’[a]

And he says in another place,

‘You are a priest for ever,
    in the order of Melchizedek.’[b]

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

Warning against falling away

11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
