Hebrews 5:1-3

Context

5:1 For every high priest is taken from among the people 1  and appointed 2  to represent them before God, 3  to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins. 5:2 He is able to deal compassionately with those who are ignorant and erring, since he also is subject to weakness, 5:3 and for this reason he is obligated to make sin offerings for himself as well as for the people.

1 tn Grk “from among men,” but since the point in context is shared humanity (rather than shared maleness), the plural Greek term ἀνθρώπων (anqrwpwn) has been translated “people.”

2 tn Grk “who is taken from among people is appointed.”

3 tn Grk “appointed on behalf of people in reference to things relating to God.”
