For the One who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. That is why He is not ashamed to call them brothers,
saying: I will proclaim Your name to My brothers; I will sing hymns to You in the congregation.
Again, I will trust in Him. And again, Here I am with the children God gave Me.
Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, He also shared in these, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death-that is, the Devil-
and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death.
For it is clear that He does not reach out to help angels, but to help Abraham's offspring.
Therefore He had to be like His brothers in every way, so that He could become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
For since He Himself was tested and has suffered, He is able to help those who are tested.
