14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He (A)Himself likewise shared in the same, (B)that through death He might destroy him who had the power of (C)death, that is, the devil, 15 and release those who (D)through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 16 For indeed He does not [a]give aid to angels, but He does [b]give aid to the seed of Abraham. 17 Therefore, in all things He had (E)to be made like His brethren, that He might be (F)a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 (G)For in that He Himself has suffered, being [c]tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

The Son Was Faithful

Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus, who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as (H)Moses also was faithful in all His house. For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as (I)He who built the house has more honor than the house. For every house is built by someone, but (J)He who built all things is God. (K)And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as (L)a servant, (M)for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward, but Christ as (N)a Son over His own house, (O)whose house we are (P)if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope [d]firm to the end.
