Jesus Briefly Humbled

But we do see Him who was (A)made [a]for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, (B)because of the suffering of death (C)crowned with glory and honor, so that (D)by the grace of God He might (E)taste death (F)for everyone.

10 For (G)it was fitting for Him, (H)for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to (I)perfect the [b](J)author of their salvation through sufferings. 11 For both He who (K)sanctifies and those who (L)are [c]sanctified are all (M)from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them (N)brethren, 12 saying,

(O)I will proclaim Your name to My brethren,
In the midst of the congregation I will sing Your praise.”

13 And again,

(P)I will put My trust in Him.”

And again,

(Q)Behold, I and the children whom God has given Me.”

14 Therefore, since the children share in [d](R)flesh and blood, (S)He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that (T)through death He might render powerless (U)him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and might free those who through (V)fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.
