Hebrews Chapter 2

Heb. 2:1 Therefore we ought to give abundant attentiveness to the things which we have heard, unless perhaps we could be wandering away.

Heb. 2:2 For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every violation and refusing to hear received a fair compensation;

Heb. 2:3 then how will we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation; which at first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by them that heard Him;

Heb. 2:4 God also giving them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with different miracles, and allocations of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?

Heb. 2:5 For to the angels He has not put in subjection the inhabited earth about to come, of which we speak.

Heb. 2:6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, what is Man, that You are mindful of Him? Or the Son of Man that You watch over Him?

Heb. 2:7 You made Him a little lower than the angels; You crowned Him with glory and honor, and installed Him over the works of Your hands:

Heb. 2:8 You have put all things in subjection under His feet. For in that He put all in subjection under Him, He left nothing that is not put under Him. But now we do not yet see all things put under Him.

Heb. 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels by the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; in order that He being separated from God experienced death in the place of all.

Heb. 2:10 For it was appropriate for Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in leading many sons into glory, to make the Captain of their salvation complete through sufferings.

Heb. 2:11 For both He that sanctifies and they whom are sanctified are all out of One: for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brothers,

Heb. 2:12 saying, I will proclaim Your name to My brothers, in the midst of the Assembly I will be singing hymns to You.

Heb. 2:13 And again, I will have My confidence in Him. And again, behold I and the children who God has given Me.

Heb. 2:14 Since the little children are partakers of blood and flesh, He also Himself nearly pertaining to them; that through death, He might put him away that had the power of death, that is the Devil;

Heb. 2:15 and deliver them who through fear of death all their lives were subject to bondage.

Heb. 2:16 For certain He did not take possession of angels; but He did take possession of the offspring of Abraham.

Heb. 2:17 Therefore He must in all things to be prepared externally like the brothers, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make a complete appeasement for the sins of the people.

Heb. 2:18 For in that He Himself has suffered being tempted, He has the ability to help those who are being tempted.
