2 For this reason we must pay much closer attention to [a]what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.2 For if the word spoken through angels proved [b]unalterable, and every transgression and disobedience received a just [c]penalty,3 how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? [d]After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard,4 God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various [e]miracles and by [f]gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will.
Earth Subject to Man
5 For He did not subject to angels [g]the world to come, concerning which we are speaking.6 But one has testified somewhere, saying,
“What is man, that You remember him? Or the son of man, that You are concerned about him? 7 “You have made him[h]for a little while lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, [i]And have appointed him over the works of Your hands; 8 You 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 we do not yet see all things subjected to him.
Jesus Briefly Humbled
9 But we do see Him who was made [j]for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.
