Hebrews 4:14-16

Jesus the Great High Priest

14 Since then we have d a great high priest e who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, f let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest g who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been d tempted as we are, h yet without sin. 16 i Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
