Hebrews 2

Therefore it behooves us the more earnestly to give heed to the things which we have heard, lest at some time we may leak out. For if the word having been spoken by angels was stedfast, and every disobedience and transgression received a just recompense of reward; how shall we escape, having neglected so great a salvation? which having received the beginning to be spoken by the Lord, was confirmed unto us by those who heard it; God at the same time witnessing, by signs and indeed by wonders, and various dynamites, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his will. For he did not submit the world to come, concerning which we speak, to angels. But somewhere one testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? Or the Son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou didst humiliate him somewhat comparatively with the angels; thou didst crown him with glory and honor; thou didst subordinate all things beneath his feet. For in subordinating all things beneath him, he left nothing which is not subordinated beneath him. But we see Jesus humiliated somewhat in comparison with the angels, having been crowned with glory and honor on account of the suffering of death, in order that by the grace of God he might taste death for every one. 10 For it became him, on account of whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in leading many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through suffering. 11 For both the one sanctifying and they who are sanctified are all of one: on account of which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying, I will proclaim thy name to thy brethren, in the midst of the church will sing praises to thee. 13 And again, I will put my trust in him: and again; Behold, I and the children which God has given unto me. 14 Then since the children have inherited blood and flesh, he likewise also received the same, in order that through death he might set at nought him who has the power of death, that is, the devil; 15 and might reconcile them whosoever were subject to bondage all their life through the fear of death. 16 For not yet does he take upon himself the nature of angels, but he takes upon himself the seed of Abraham. 17 Therefore he ought in all things to be made like unto his brethren, in order that he might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things appertaining to God, to the end that he may atone for the sins of the people. 18 For in that he himself suffered being tempted, he is able to succor those who are tempted.
