But some man witnessed in a place, and said [Soothly some man witnessed in some place, saying], What thing is man, that thou art mindful of him, or man's son, for thou visitest him?
Thou hast made him a little less than angels [Thou madest him a little less from angels]; thou hast crowned him with glory and honour; and thou hast ordained him on [upon] the works of thine hands.
Thou hast made all things subject under his feet. And in that that he subjected all things to him, he left nothing unsubject to him [he left nothing unsubjected to him]. But now we see not yet all things subject to him;
but we see him that was made a little less than angels, Jesus, for the passion of death crowned with glory and honour, that he through [the] grace of God should taste death for all men.
For it beseemed him, for whom all things, and by whom all things were made, which had brought many sons into glory, and was author of the health of them, that he had an end by passion. [+Forsooth it became him, for whom all things, and by all things, the which had led together many sons into glory, the maker of the health of them, to end, either make perfect, by passions.]
For he that halloweth, and they that be hallowed, be all of one; for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
saying, I shall tell thy name to my brethren; in the middle of the church I shall praise thee.
And again, I shall be trusting into him; and again, Lo! I and my children, which God gave to me.
Therefore for children communed to flesh and blood, and he also took part of the same, that by death he should destroy him that had lordship of death, that is to say, the devil,
and that he should deliver them that by dread of death [and should deliver them that by dread of death], by all life were bound to servage.
And he took [to] never angels, but he took [to] the seed of Abraham.
