Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentHebrews 5:4
- Taketh the honour unto himself (eautwi lambanei thn timhn).
- Dative case of personal interest (eautwi). The priest was called of God. This is the ideal and was true of Aaron. The modern minister is not a priest, but he also should be a God-called man and not one who pushes himself into the ministry or into ecclesiastical office.
