Hebrews 5:5-10

5:6 The word for "order" as in "order of Mel." is taxsin, as in taxinomy, meaning classification, rank, type.

5:7 The word flesh (sarx) is used here; Hebrews in 2:14 also emphasizes Jesus fleshly nature.

5:8 The translators do get this right, it seems, but this verse could just as easily read: "save us from death through loud cries and tears." In short, the "through loud cries" could refer to how Jesus will save us instead of his prayers.

5:9 The word for source, as in source of our salvation, is "aitios," can mean more strongly the cause of.
