2 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should †let them slip. 2 For if the word aspoken by angels was stedfast, and bevery transgression and disobedience received a just crecompence of reward; 3 dHow shall we escape, if we neglect so great esalvation; which fat the first began to be spoken by gthe Lord, and was gconfirmed unto us hby them that heard him; 4 God also bearing them witness, both with gisigns and iwonders, and with divers klmiracles, and ||kgifts of the Holy Ghost, maccording to his own will?
5 For nunto the angels hath he not put in subjection othe world to come, whereof we speak. 6 But pone in a certain place qtestified, saying, rWhat is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 7 Thou madest him ||a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 8 sThou 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 tnow we see not yet all things put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, uvwho was made a little lower than the angels ||vwfor the suffering of death, ucrowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should xtaste death yfor every man. 10 zFor it became him, afor whom are all things, and bby whom are all things, in bringing cmany sons unto glory, to make dthe captain of their salvation eperfect through sufferings. 11 For both fhe that sanctifieth and gthey who are sanctified hare all of one: for which cause ihe is not ashamed to call them jbrethren, 12 Saying, kI will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of lthe church will I sing praise unto thee. 13 And again, mI will put my trust in him. And again, nBehold I and the children owhich God hath given me. 14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of pflesh and blood, qhe also himself likewise took part of the same; that rthrough death he might sdestroy him that had the power of death, tthat is, the devil; 15 And deliver them who uthrough vfear of death were all their lifetime wsubject to vbondage. 16 For verily †he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. 17 Wherefore xxin all things it behoved him qto be made like unto his brethren, that he might be ya merciful and faithful high priest zin things pertaining to God, to amake reconciliation for the sins of the people. 18 yFor in that he himself hath suffered bbeing tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
