14 Therefore, since the children share in [a](A)flesh and blood, (B)He Himself likewise also partook of the same, so that (C)through death He might destroy (D)the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and free those who through (E)fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. 16 For clearly He does not [b]give help to angels, but He gives help to the [c]descendants of Abraham. 17 Therefore, in all things He [d]had (F)to be made like His brothers so that He might (G)become a merciful and faithful (H)high priest in (I)things pertaining to God, to (J)make [e]propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For since He Himself was [f](K)tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are [g]tempted.
