Hebrews 2:9-18 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor1 because he suffered death,2 so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.3 10 In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists,4 should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering.5 11 Both the one who makes men holy6 and those who are made holy7 are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.8 12 He says, "I will declare your name to my brothers; in the presence of the congregation I will sing your praises."a9 13 And again, "I will put my trust in him."b10 And again he says, "Here am I, and the children God has given me."c11 14 Since the children have flesh and blood,12 he too shared in their humanity13 so that by his death he might destroy14 him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil15-- 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear16 of death. 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants.17 17 For this reason he had to be made like his brothers18 in every way, in order that he might become a merciful19 and faithful high priest20 in service to God,21 and that he might make atonement ford the sins of the people.22 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.23
