Hebrews 2

Give Heed

1For this reason we must pay much closer attention to
Lit the things that have been heard
what we have heard, so that b  we do not drift away from it.
2For if the word c  spoken through d  angels proved
Or steadfast
unalterable, and f  every transgression and disobedience received a just
Or recompense
h  penalty,
3 i  how will we escape if we neglect so great a j  salvation?
Lit Which was
After it was at the first l  spoken through the Lord, it was m  confirmed to us by those who heard,
4God also testifying with them, both by n  signs and wonders and by o  various
Or works of power
miracles and by
Lit distributions
r  gifts of the Holy Spirit s  according to His own will.

Earth Subject to Man

5For He did not subject to angels
Lit the inhabited earth
u  the world to come, concerning which we are speaking.
6But one has testified v  somewhere, saying, w  What is man, that You remember him?
Or the son of man, that You are concerned about him?
7 x  You have made him
Or ...him a little lower than...
for a little while lower than the angels;
You have crowned him with glory and honor,
Two early mss do not contain And...hands
And have appointed him over the works of Your hands;
8 aa  You have put all things in subjection under his feet.”
For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. But now ab  we do not yet see all things subjected to him.

Jesus Briefly Humbled

9But we do see Him who was ac  made
Or a little lower
for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus ae  because of the suffering of death af  crowned with glory and honor, so that ag  by the grace of God He might ah  taste death ai  for everyone.

10For aj  it was fitting for Him, ak  for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to al  perfect the
Or leader
an  author of their salvation through sufferings.
11For both He who ao  sanctifies and those who ap  are
Or being sanctified
sanctified are all ar  from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them as  brethren,
12saying, at  “I will proclaim Your name to My brethren,
In the midst of the congregation I will sing Your praise.”

13And again, au  “I will put My trust in Him.”
And again,
av  Behold, I and the children whom God has given Me.”

14Therefore, since the children share in
Lit blood and flesh
ax  flesh and blood ay  He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that az  through death He might render powerless ba  him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
15and might free those who through bb  fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. 16For assuredly He does not
Lit take hold of angels, but He takes hold of
give help to angels, but He gives help to the
Lit seed
descendant of Abraham.
17Therefore, He
Lit was obligated to be
had bf  to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might bg  become a merciful and faithful bh  high priest in bi  things pertaining to God, to bj  make propitiation for the sins of the people.
18For since He Himself was bk  tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.
