Hebrews 2:6-8

6 But there is a place where someone has testified: “What is mankind that you are mindful of them, a son of man that you care for him?
7 You made them a little[a] lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honor
8 and put everything under their feet.”[b][c]In putting everything under them,[d] God left nothing that is not subject to them.[e] Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them.[f]
