Hebrews 2:5Hebrews 2:18

2. As the Son of Man -- As Man

5 For it was not to angels that He subjected the coming 1inhabited earth, concerning which we speak.

6 But one has solemnly testified somewhere, saying, 1a"What is man, that You bring him to mind? Or the son of man, that You care for him?

7 You have made Him 1a little inferior to the angels; You have crowned Him with glory and honor and have set Him aover the works of Your hands;

8 You have asubjected all things under His feet.'' For in subjecting all things to Him, He left nothing unsubject to Him. But now we do not yet see all things subjected to Him,

9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little 1inferior to the angels because of the suffering of adeath, bcrowned with 2cglory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death on behalf of 3deverything.

10 For it was fitting for 1Him, afor whom are all things and through whom are all things, in leading 2bmany sons into 3cglory, to make the 4dAuthor of their esalvation 5fperfect through sufferings.

11 For both 1He who asanctifies and those who are being bsanctified are all 2of One, for which cause He is not ashamed to call them cbrothers,

12 Saying, a"I will 1declare Your name to My brothers; in the midst of the 2church 3I will sing hymns of praise to You.''

13 And again, a"I will trust in Him.'' And again, b"Behold, I and the children whom God has given to Me.''

14 Since therefore the children have shared in ablood and flesh, He also Himself in like manner bpartook of the same, that through cdeath He might 1ddestroy him who has the might of edeath, that is, the fdevil,

15 And might 1release those who because of the fear of death through all their life were held in slavery.

16 For assuredly it is not to angels that He 1gives help, but He 1gives help to the seed of Abraham.

17 Hence He should have been 1made alike His brothers in all things that He might become a merciful and faithful 2bHigh Priest in the 3things cpertaining to God, to make 4dpropitiation for the sins of the people.

18 For being atempted in that which He Himself has suffered, He is able to help those who are being tempted.
