Hebrews 2 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible

Give Heed

1 For this reason we must pay much closer attention to awhat we have heard, so that 1we do not drift away from it. 2 For if the word 2spoken through 3angels proved bunalterable, and 4every transgression and disobedience received a just c5penalty, 3 6how will we escape if we neglect so great a 7salvation? dAfter it was at the first 8spoken through the Lord, it was 9confirmed to us by those who heard, 4 God also testifying with them, both by 10signs and wonders and by 11various emiracles and by f12gifts of the Holy Spirit 13according to His own will.

Earth Subject to Man

5 For He did not subject to angels g14the world to come, concerning which we are speaking. 6 But one has testified 15somewhere, saying, "16WHAT IS MAN, THAT YOU REMEMBER HIM? OR THE SON OF MAN, THAT YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT HIM? 7 "17YOU HAVE MADE HIM hFOR A LITTLE WHILE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS; YOU HAVE CROWNED HIM WITH GLORY AND HONOR, iAND HAVE APPOINTED HIM OVER THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS; 8 18YOU HAVE PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET." For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. But now 19we do not yet see all things subjected to him.

Jesus Briefly Humbled

9 But we do see Him who was 20made jfor a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, 21because of the suffering of death 22crowned with glory and honor, so that 23by the grace of God He might 24taste death 25for everyone. 10 For 26it was fitting for Him, 27for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to 28perfect the k29author of their salvation through sufferings. 11 For both He who 30sanctifies and those who 31are lsanctified are all 32from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them 33brethren, 12 saying, "34I WILL PROCLAIM YOUR NAME TO MY BRETHREN, IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION I WILL SING YOUR PRAISE." 13 And again, "35I WILL PUT MY TRUST IN HIM." And again, "36BEHOLD, I AND THE CHILDREN WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN ME." 14 Therefore, since the children share in m37flesh and blood, 38He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that 39through death He might render powerless 40him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and might free those who through 41fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. 16 For assuredly He does not ngive help to angels, but He gives help to the odescendant of Abraham. 17 Therefore, He phad 42to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might 43become a merciful and faithful 44high priest in 45things pertaining to God, to 46make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For since He Himself was 47tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.
