Hebrews Chapter 2

1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the thingswhich we have heardlest at any time we should let them slip.

2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfastand everytransgression and disobedience received a just recompence ofreward

3 How shall we escapeif we neglect so great salvationwhichat the first began to be spoken by the Lordand was confirmedunto us by them that heard him

4 God also bearing them witnessboth with signs and wondersand with divers miraclesand gifts of the Holy Ghostaccording to his own will

5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world tocomewhereof we speak.

6 But one in a certain place testifiedsayingWhat is manthat thou art mindful of himor the son of man that thouvisitest him

7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angelsthou crownedsthim with glory and honourand didst set him over the works ofthy hands

8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For inthat he put all in subjection under himhe left nothing thatis not put under him. But now we see not yet all things putunder him.

9 But we see Jesuswho was made a little lower than the angelsfor the suffering of deathcrowned with glory and honourthat he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

10 For it became himfor whom are all thingsand by whom areall thingsin bringing many sons unto gloryto make thecaptain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified areall of onefor which cause he is not ashamed to call thembrethren

12 SayingI will declare thy name unto my brethrenin the midstof the church will I sing praise unto thee.

13 And againI will put my trust in him. And againBehold I andthe children which God hath given me.

14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh andbloodhe also himself likewise took part of the samethatthrough death he might destroy him that had the power ofdeaththat isthe devil

15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all theirlifetime subject to bondage.

16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angelsbut hetook on him the seed of Abraham.

17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like untohis brethrenthat he might be a merciful and faithful highpriest in things pertaining to Godto make reconciliation forthe sins of the people.

18 For in that he himself hath suffered being temptedhe is ableto succour them that are tempted.
