Hebrews 2 ©
The obligation we are under to give more earnest heed to the gospel doctrine. The dominion of the world to come was not granted to angels, but to the Son of man, whom it behoved to undergo a previous course of humiliation and suffering.
For if the word spoken bby angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience creceived a just recompence of reward;
dHow shall we escape, if we neglect eso great salvation; which at the first fbegan to be spoken by the Lord, and was gconfirmed unto us by them that heard him;
mThou 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 nnow we see not yet all things put under him.
But we see Jesus, who owas made a little lower than the angels 4for the suffering of death, pcrowned with glory and honour; that qhe by the grace of God should taste death rfor every man.
For sit became him, tfor whom are all things, and uby whom are all things, in bringing vmany sons unto glory, to make wthe captain of their salvation xperfect through sufferings.
Saying, bI will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
*Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, fhe also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death ghe might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Wherefore in all things it *behoved him to be made jlike 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.
