The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 For this reason we should give heed more abundantly to the things [we have] heard, lest in any way we should slip away. 1 We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.
2 For if the word which was spoken by angels was firm, and every transgression and disobedience received just retribution, 2 For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment,
3 how shall *we* escape if we have been negligent of so great salvation, which, having had its commencement in being spoken [of] by the Lord, has been confirmed to us by those who have heard; 3 how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him.
4 God bearing, besides, witness with [them] to [it], both by signs and wonders, and various acts of power, and distributions of [the] Holy Spirit, according to his will? 4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.
5 For he has not subjected to angels the habitable world which is to come, of which we speak; 5 It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking.
6 but one has testified somewhere, saying, What is man, that thou rememberest him, or son of man that thou visitest him? 6 But there is a place where someone has testified: "What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
7 Thou hast made him some little inferior to the angels; thou hast crowned him with glory and honour, [and hast set him over the works of thy hands;] 7 You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor
8 thou hast subjected all things under his feet. For in subjecting all things to him, he has left nothing unsubject to him. But now we see not yet all things subjected to *him*, 8 and put everything under his feet." In putting everything under him, God left nothing that is not subject to him. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to him.
9 but we see Jesus, who [was] made some little inferior to angels on account of the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; so that by the grace of God he should taste death for every thing. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
10 For it became him, for whom [are] all things, and by whom [are] all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make perfect the leader of their salvation through sufferings. 10 In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering.
11 For both he that sanctifies and those sanctified [are] all of one; for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 11 Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.
12 saying, I will declare thy name to my brethren; in [the] midst of [the] assembly will I sing thy praises. 12 He says, "I will declare your name to my brothers; in the presence of the congregation I will sing your praises."
13 And again, I will trust in him. And again, Behold, I and the children which God has given me. 13 And again, "I will put my trust in him." And again he says, "Here am I, and the children God has given me."
14 Since therefore the children partake of blood and flesh, he also, in like manner, took part in the same, that through death he might annul him who has the might of death, that is, the devil; 14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil--
15 and might set free all those who through fear of death through the whole of their life were subject to bondage. 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
16 For he does not indeed take hold of angels [by the hand], but he takes hold of the seed of Abraham. 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants.
17 Wherefore it behoved him in all things to be made like to [his] brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things relating to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people; 17 For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.
18 for, in that himself has suffered, being tempted, he is able to help those that are being tempted. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
