and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear11 of death.
For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants.1217
For this reason he had to be made like his brothers13 in every way, in order that he might become a merciful14 and faithful high priest15 in service to God,16 and that he might make atonement ford the sins of the people.17
