Hebrews 2

1 Therefore we need to more abundantly heed the things we have heard, so that they do not slip our minds.
2 For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense,
3 how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him,
4 God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various works of power, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?
5 For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, in subjection to angels.
6 But one testified in a certain place, saying: What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You look upon him?
7 You have made him, for a little while, less than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, and set him over the works of Your hands.
8 You have put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that He put all things in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But at this time we do not yet see all things subjected under him.
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little less than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the Author of their salvation complete through sufferings.
11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,
12 saying: I will declare Your name to My brethren; in the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.
13 And again: I will put My trust in Him. And again: Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.
14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
15 and set free those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
16 For indeed He does not take on the form of angels, but He does take on the seed of Abraham.
17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in the things pertaining to God, in order to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tested, He is able to help those who are tested.
