Jeremiah 48 New King James Version (NKJV)
Judgment on Moab
48 Against Moab.
Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel:
“Woe to Nebo!
4 “Moab is destroyed;
6 “Flee, save your lives!
9 “Give wings to Moab,
11 “Moab has been at ease from [e]his youth;
12 “Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,
14 “How can you say, ‘We are mighty
16 “The calamity of Moab is near at hand,
18 “O daughter inhabiting Dibon,
21 “And judgment has come on the plain country:
26 “Make him drunk,
29 “We have heard the pride of Moab
30 “I know his wrath,” says the Lord,
34 “From the cry of Heshbon to Elealeh and to Jahaz
35 “Moreover,” says the Lord,
37 “For every head shall be bald, and every beard clipped;
40 For thus says the Lord:
“Behold, one shall fly like an eagle,
45 “Those who fled stood under the shadow of Heshbon
47 “Yet I will bring back the captives of Moab
Thus far is the judgment of Moab.
Hebrews 2 New King James Version (NKJV)
Do Not Neglect Salvation
2 Therefore we must give [a]the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away. 2 For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just [b]reward, 3 how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, 4 God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts[c] of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?
The Son Made Lower than Angels
5 For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, in subjection to angels. 6 But one testified in a certain place, saying:
“What is man that You are mindful of him,
For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made [f]a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
Bringing Many Sons to Glory
10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who [g]sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying:
“I will declare Your name to My brethren;
13 And again:
“I will put My trust in Him.”
“Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.”
14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 16 For indeed He does not [h]give aid to angels, but He does [i]give aid to the seed of Abraham. 17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being [j]tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.
