But you know it was because of a physical illness that I first proclaimed the gospel to you,
He is able to deal compassionately with those who are ignorant and erring, since he also is subject to weakness,
For the law appoints as high priests men subject to weakness, 1 but the word of solemn affirmation that came after the law appoints a son made perfect forever.
(I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh.) 1 For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.
