The Epistle to the Hebrews

Chapter 2

1

 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let [them] slip. 

2

 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; 

3

 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard [him]; 

4

 God also bearing [them] witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will? 

5

 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. 

6

 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 

7

 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 

8

 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing [that is] not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. 

9

 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. 

10

 For it became him, for whom [are] all things, and by whom [are] all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 

11

 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified [are] all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 

12

 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. 

13

 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. 

14

 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 

15

 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 

16

 For verily he took not on [him the nature of] angels; but he took on [him] the seed of Abraham. 

17

 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto [his] brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. 

18

 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
