1 Because of this, [it is] all the more necessary [that] we pay attention to the [things] we have heard, lest we drift 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 spoken through angels was binding and every transgression and act of disobedience received a just penalty, 2 For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment,
3 how will we escape [if we] neglect so great a salvation which had [its] beginning [when it] was spoken through the Lord [and] was confirmed to us by those who 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 [while] God was testifying at the same time by signs and wonders and various miracles 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 did not subject to angels the world to come, about which we are speaking. 5 It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking.
6 But someone testified somewhere, saying, "What is man, that you remember him, or the son of man, that you care for 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 You made him for a short [time] lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor; 7 You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor
8 you subjected all [things] under his feet. For in subjecting all [things], he left nothing [that was] not subject to him. But now we do not yet see 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, for a short [time] made lower than the angels, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that apart from God he might taste death on behalf of everyone. 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 was fitting for him for whom [are] all [things] and through whom [are] all [things] in bringing many sons to glory to perfect the originator 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 the one who sanctifies and the ones who are sanctified [are] all from one, for which reason he is not ashamed to call them brothers, 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 proclaim your name to my brothers; in the midst of the assembly I will sing in praise of you." 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 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 Therefore, since the children share in blood and flesh, he also in like manner shared in these [same things], in order that through death he could destroy the one who has the power 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 could set free these who through fear of death were subject to slavery throughout all their lives. 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

18 For in that which he himself suffered [when he] was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
