Hebrews 5:12

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
New King James Version

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
New American Standard Bible

For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
New International Version

In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!
The Amplified Bible

For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God’s Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

In fact, when at this time you are under moral obligation to be teachers by reason of the extent of time [you have been under instruction], again you are in need of someone to be teaching you what are the rudimentary things of the very beginning in the oracles of God, and have become and still are of such as have need of milk, not of solid food.
Phillips’ Modern English

At a time when you should be teaching others, you need teachers yourselves to repeat to you the ABC of God’s revelation to men. You have become people who need a milk diet and can not face solid food!
Williams’ Language of the People

For although you ought to be teachers of others because you have been Christians so long, you actually need someone to teach you over and over again the very elements of the truth that God has given us and you have gotten into such a state that you are in constant need of milk instead of solid food.
