“What are mere mortals that you should think about them,
or a son of man* that you should care for him?
and crowned them with glory and honor.*
8 You gave them authority over all things.”*
Now when it says “all things,” it means nothing is left out. But we have not yet seen all things put under their authority. 9 What we do see is Jesus, who for a little while was given a position “a little lower than the angels”; and because he suffered death for us, he is now “crowned with glory and honor.” Yes, by God’s grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone. 10 God, for whom and through whom everything was made, chose to bring many children into glory. And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering, a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation.
11 So now Jesus and the ones he makes holy have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters.* 12 For he said to God,
“I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters.
I will praise you among your assembled people.”*
“I will put my trust in him,”
that is, “I and the children God has given me.”*
