NASB — Hebrews 2 — KJV

Give Heed

1 For this reason we must pay much closer attention to Iwhat we have heard, so that awe do not drift away [from it]. 2 For if the word aspoken through bangels proved Iunalterable, and cevery transgression and disobedience received a just IIdpenalty, 3 ahow will we escape if we neglect so great a bsalvation? IAfter it was at the first cspoken through the Lord, it was dconfirmed to us by those who heard, 4 God also testifying with them, both by asigns and wonders and by bvarious Imiracles and by IIcgifts of the Holy Spirit daccording to His own will.

Earth Subject to Man

5 ¶ For He did not subject to angels Iathe world to come, concerning which we are speaking. 6 But one has testified asomewhere, saying,
  “bWHAT IS MAN, THAT YOU REMEMBER HIM?
  OR THE SON OF MAN, THAT YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT HIM?
  7aYOU HAVE MADE HIM IFOR A LITTLE WHILE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS;
  YOU HAVE CROWNED HIM WITH GLORY AND HONOR,
  IIAND HAVE APPOINTED HIM OVER THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS;
  8 aYOU HAVE PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET.”
For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. But now bwe do not yet see all things subjected to him.

Jesus Briefly Humbled

9 But we do see Him who was amade Ifor a little while lower than the angels, [namely], Jesus, bbecause of the suffering of death ccrowned with glory and honor, so that dby the grace of God He might etaste death ffor everyone.

10 ¶ For ait was fitting for Him, bfor whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to cperfect the Idauthor of their salvation through sufferings. 11 For both He who asanctifies and those who bare Isanctified are all cfrom one [Father]; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them dbrethren, 12 saying,
  “aI WILL PROCLAIM YOUR NAME TO MY BRETHREN,
  IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION I WILL SING YOUR PRAISE.”
13 And again,
  “aI WILL PUT MY TRUST IN HIM.”
And again,
  “bBEHOLD, I AND THE CHILDREN WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN ME.”

14 ¶ Therefore, since the children share in Iaflesh and blood, bHe Himself likewise also partook of the same, that cthrough death He might render powerless dhim who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and might free those who through afear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. 16 For assuredly He does not Igive help to angels, but He gives help to the IIdescendant of Abraham. 17 Therefore, He Ihad ato be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might bbecome a merciful and faithful chigh priest in dthings pertaining to God, to emake propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For since He Himself was atempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.

We ought to be obedient to Christ Jesus,

1 ¶ Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let [them] slip. 2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; 3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard [him]; 4 God also bearing [them] witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

and that because he vouchsafed to take our nature upon him,

5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. 6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 8 Thou hast 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 see not yet all things put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. 10 For it became him, for whom [are] all things, and by whom [are] all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified [are] all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. 13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

as it was necessary.

14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 16 For verily he took not on [him the nature of] angels; but he took on [him] the seed of Abraham. 17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto [his] brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
