1 Therefore, we must pay much more careful heed to the things we have heard, so that we will not 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 God spoke through angels became binding, so that every violation and act of disobedience received its just deserts in full measure, 2 For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment,
3 then how will we escape if we ignore such a great deliverance? This deliverance, which was first declared by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him; 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 also bore witness to it with various signs, wonders and miracles, and with gifts of the Ruach HaKodesh which he distributed as he chose. 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 it was not to angels that God subjected the 'olam haba - which is what we are talking about. 5 It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking.
6 And there is a place where someone has given this solemn testimony: "What is mere man, that you concern yourself with him? or the son of man, that you watch over him with such care? 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 a little 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 put everything in subjection under his feet." In subjecting everything to him, he left nothing unsubjected to him. However, at present, we don't see everything subjected to him - at least, not yet. 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 do see Yeshua - who indeed was made for a little while lower than the angels - now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by God's grace he might taste death for all humanity. 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 in bringing many sons to glory, it was only fitting that God, the Creator and Preserver of everything, should bring the Initiator of their deliverance to the goal 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 Yeshua, who sets people apart for God, and the ones being set apart have a common origin - this is why 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 when he says, "I will proclaim your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will sing your praise." 12 He says, "I will declare your name to my brothers; in the presence of the congregation I will sing your praises."
13 Also, "I will put my trust in him, . . ." and then it goes on, "Here I am, along with 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 a common physical nature as human beings, he became like them and shared that same human nature; so that by his death he might render ineffective the one who had power over death (that is, the Adversary) 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 thus set free those who had been in bondage all their lives because of their fear of death. 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
16 Indeed, it is obvious that he does not take hold of angels to help them; on the contrary, "He takes hold of the seed of Avraham." 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants.
17 This is why he had to become like his brothers in every respect - so that he might become a merciful and faithful cohen gadol in the service of God, making a kapparah 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 since he himself suffered death when he was put to the test, he is able to help those who are being tested now. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
