Hebrews 2:1-9 NRS

1 Therefore we must pay greater attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.
2 For if the message declared through angels was valid, and every transgression or disobedience received a just penalty,
3 how can we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? It was declared at first through the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard him,
4 while God added his testimony by signs and wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit, distributed according to his will.
5 Now God a did not subject the coming world, about which we are speaking, to angels.
