Hebrews 2 ©

1 The obligation we are under to give more earnest heed to the gospel doctrine. 5 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.


THEREFORE awe ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should 1let them slip.


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;


hGod also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with *divers miracles, and 2gifts of the Holy *Ghost, according to his own will?


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

i ch. 1.2,4,8.

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


lThou madest him 3a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:


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.


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


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


And again, cI will put my trust in him. And again, dBehold I and the children ewhich God hath given me.


*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;


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


For *verily 5he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him ithe seed of Abraham.


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.


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