Hebrews 2

1 On account of this, it is necessary for us to give heed more abundantly to the things having been heard, lest at any time we might drift away.

2 For since the word having been spoken through angels came to be secure, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense,

3 then how will we escape having neglected so great of a salvation? Which having taken a beginning, to be spoken through the Lord, was confirmed into us by the ones having heard,

4 God testifying at the same time by both signs and wonders and various powers and by divisions of the Holy Spirit according to His will.

5 For He did not subject the coming inhabited earth to angels, concerning which we speak,

6 but a certain one solemnly testified somewhere saying: What is man, that You remembered him, or a son of man, that You visit him?

7 You decreased him a little something alongside of angels, You crowned him with glory and honor, [and You placed Him over the works of Your hands.]

8 You subjected all things underneath his feet, for in the result to subject all things [to him], He left not even one thing unruly to him. But now we do not yet see all things subjected to him,

9 but the One decreased a little something alongside of angels we see, Jesus, crowned with glory and honor on account of the sufferings of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death on behalf of all.

10 For it was fitting for Him, on account of Whom are all things, and through Whom are all things, having led many sons into glory, to complete the Originator of their salvation through sufferings.

11 For both the One sanctifying and the ones being sanctified are all out from One, on account of which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,

12 saying: I will proclaim Your name to My Brethren, in the midst of the assembly I will sing You praise,

13 and again: I Myself will be confident upon Him, and again: Behold, I and the young children which God gave to Me.

14 Therefore, since the young children have shared of blood and of flesh, then also He Himself likewise partook of them, in order that through death He might idle-down the one having the might of death, that is, the devil,

15 and He might release these, as many as of all by fear of death were liable of slavery, through the result to live.

16 For doubtless He does not take hold of angels, but He takes hold of the seed of Abraham.

17 Wherefore, He was obligated to be made like the brethren according to all things, in order that He might come to be a merciful and faithful high priest of the things toward God, into the purpose to atone for the sins of the people.

18 For in which He has suffered, Himself having been tested, He is able to help the ones being tested.
