But one at a certain place testified, saying, "What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? Or the son of man, that Thou visitest him?
Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; Thou crowned him with glory and honor and set him over the works of Thy hands.
Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet." For in putting all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now as yet we see not all things put under him.
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor, that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the Captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
For both He that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of One, for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren,
saying, "I will declare Thy name unto My brethren; in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto Thee."
And again, "I will put My trust in Him." And again, "Behold I and the children whom God hath given Me."
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same, that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death -- that is, the devil --
and deliver those who all their lifetime were subject to bondage through fear of death.
For verily He took not on Himself the nature of angels, but He took on Him the seed of Abraham.
