Hebrews 2:5-8 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

But not to angels God subjected the world that is to coming [Forsooth not to angels God subjected the roundness of the earth to come], of which we speak.

But some man witnessed in a place, and said [Soothly some man witnessed in some place, saying], What thing is man, that thou art mindful of him, or man's son, for thou visitest him?

Thou hast made him a little less than angels [Thou madest him a little less from angels]; thou hast crowned him with glory and honour; and thou hast ordained him on [upon] the works of thine hands.

Thou hast made all things subject under his feet. And in that that he subjected all things to him, he left nothing unsubject to him [he left nothing unsubjected to him]. But now we see not yet all things subject to him;

Hebrews 2:5-8 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

It is not to the angels that he has put in subjection the world to come, of which we speak. But one in a certain place witnesses, saying, What is man, that you are mindful of him? After you had for a season made him lower than the angels, you crowned him with honour and glory, and have set him above the works of your hands. You have put all things in subjection under his feet.

In that he put all things under him, he left nothing that is not put under him.

[a]For he hath not put in subjection unto the Angels the [b]world to come, whereof we speak.

[c]But one in a certain place witnessed, saying, [d]What is man, that thou shouldest be mindful of him? or the [e]son of man, that thou wouldest consider him?

Thou [f]madest him a little inferior to the Angels: thou crownedst him with [g]glory and honor, and hast set him above the works of thine hands.

Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. And in that he hath put all things in subjection under him, he left nothing that should not be subject unto him. [h]But we yet see not all things subdued unto him,
