Jesus Briefly Humbled

9 But we do see Him who was amade 1for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, bbecause of the suffering of death ccrowned with glory and honor, so that dby the grace of God He might etaste death ffor everyone.

10 For ait was fitting for Him, bfor whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to cperfect the 1dauthor of their salvation through sufferings.

11 For both He who asanctifies and those who bare 1sanctified are all cfrom one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them dbrethren,

12 saying,

aI will proclaim Your name to My brethren,

In the midst of the congregation I will sing Your praise.”

13 And again,

aI will put My trust in Him.”

And again,

bBehold, I and the children whom God has given Me.”

14 Therefore, since the children share in 1aflesh and blood, bHe Himself likewise also partook of the same, that cthrough death He might render powerless dhim who had the power of death, that is, the devil,

15 and might free those who through afear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.

16 For assuredly He does not 1give help to angels, but He gives help to the 2descendant of Abraham.

17 Therefore, He 1had ato be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might bbecome a merciful and faithful chigh priest in dthings pertaining to God, to emake propitiation for the sins of the people.

18 For since He Himself was atempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.
