Warning against Neglect
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:1 -

For this reason, we must pay attention all the more to what we have heard, so that we will not drift away.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:2 -

For if the message spoken through angels was legally binding[fn] and every transgression and disobedience received a just punishment,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:3 -

how will we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? This salvation had its beginning when it was spoken of by the Lord, and it was confirmed to us by those who heard him.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:4 -

At the same time, God also testified by signs and wonders, various miracles, and distributions of gifts from the Holy Spirit according to his will.

Jesus and Humanity
(cf. Psa 8:1–9 )
Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:5 -

For he has not subjected to angels the world to come that we are talking about.

What is man that you remember him,

or the son of man that you care for him?

for a short time;

you crowned him with glory and honor[fn]

For in subjecting everything to him, he left nothing that is not subject to him. As it is, we do not yet see everything subjected to him.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:9 -

But we do see Jesus ​— ​made lower than the angels for a short time so that by God’s grace he might taste death for everyone ​— ​crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:10 -

For in bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was entirely appropriate that God ​— ​for whom and through whom all things exist ​— ​should make the pioneer[fn] of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:11 -

For the one who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father.[fn] That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters,

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:12 -


I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters;

I will sing hymns to you in the congregation.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:13 -

Again, I will trust in him. And again, Here I am with the children God gave me.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:14 -

Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, Jesus also shared in these, so that through his death he might destroy the one holding the power of death ​— ​that is, the devil ​— ​

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:15 -

and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:16 -

For it is clear that he does not reach out to help angels, but to help Abraham’s offspring.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:17 -

Therefore, he had to be like his brothers and sisters in every way, so that he could become a merciful and faithful high priest in matters[fn] pertaining to God, to make atonement[fn] for the sins of the people.

Unchecked Copy BoxHeb 2:18 -

For since he himself has suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.
