Hebrews 2:8-13 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

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;

but we see him that was made a little less than angels, Jesus, for the passion of death crowned with glory and honour, that he through [the] grace of God should taste death for all men.

10 For it beseemed him, for whom all things, and by whom all things were made, which had brought many sons into glory, and was author of the health of them, that he had an end by passion.[a]

11 For he that halloweth, and they that be hallowed, be all of one; for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

12 saying, I shall tell thy name to my brethren; in the middle of the church I shall praise thee.

13 And again, I shall be trusting into him; and again, Lo! I and my children, which God gave to me.

  1. Hebrews 2:10 Forsooth it became him, for whom all things, and by all things, the which had led together many sons into glory, the maker of the health of them, to end, either make perfect, by passions.

Hebrews 2:8-13 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

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. Nevertheless, we do not yet see all things subdued, but we see him who was made less than the angels. We see that it was Jesus who is crowned with glory and honour for the suffering of death: that he, by the grace of God, was to taste of death for all men.

10 For it was fitting for him, for whom all things are and by whom all things are, in accordance with the way that he brought many sons to glory, to make the Lord of their salvation perfect through suffering. 11 For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all of one, for which sake he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying: I will declare your name to my brethren, and in the midst of the congregation I will praise you. 13 And again: I will put my trust in him. And again: Behold, here am I and the children that God has given me.

Hebrews 2:8-13 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

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. [a]But we yet see not all things subdued unto him,

[b]But we [c]see Jesus crowned with glory and honor, which was made little [d]inferior to the Angels, [e]through the [f]suffering of death, that by God’s grace he might [g]taste death for [h]all men.

10 [i]For it became [j]him, for whom are all these things, and by whom are all these things, [k]seeing that he brought many children unto glory, [l]that he should consecrate the [m]Prince of their salvation through afflictions.

11 [n]For he that [o]sanctifieth, and they which are sanctified, are all of [p]one: wherefore he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

12 [q]Saying, I will declare thy Name unto my brethren: in the midst of the Church will I sing praises to thee.

13 [r]And again, I will put my [s]trust in him. And again, [t]Behold, here am I, and the children which God hath given me.

  1. Hebrews 2:8 An objection: But where is this so great rule and dominion?
  2. Hebrews 2:9 The answer: this is already fulfilled in Jesus Christ our head, who was for a time for our sakes inferior to the Angels, being made man: but now is advanced into most high glory.
  3. Hebrews 2:9 By his virtue and power which appeareth manifestly in the Church.
  4. Hebrews 2:9 Who abased himself for a season, and took upon him the position of a servant.
  5. Hebrews 2:9 He showeth the cause of this subjection, to wit, to taste of death for our sakes, that so doing the part of a redeemer, he might not only be our Prophet and King, but also our high Priest.
  6. Hebrews 2:9 That he might die.
  7. Hebrews 2:9 Feel death.
  8. Hebrews 2:9 Herein consisteth the force of the argument: for we could not at length be glorified with him, unless he was abased for us even all the faithful. And by this occasion the Apostle cometh to the other part of the declaration of Christ’s person, wherein he proveth him to be in such sort God, and he is also man.
  9. Hebrews 2:10 He proveth moreover by other arguments, why it behooveth the Son of God who is true God (as he proveth a little before) to become man notwithstanding, subject to all miseries, sin only except.
  10. Hebrews 2:10 God.
  11. Hebrews 2:10 First of all, because the Father, to whose glory all these things are to be referred, purposed to bring many sons unto glory. And how could he have men for his sons, unless his only begotten Son had become brother to men?
  12. Hebrews 2:10 Secondly, The Father determined to bring those sons to glory, to wit, out of that ignominy wherein they lay before. Therefore the Son should not have been seen plainly to be made man, unless he had been made like unto other men, that he might come to glory in the selfsame way, by which he should bring others: yea rather, it became him which was Prince of the salvation of others, to be consecrated above others, through those afflictions, Prophet, King, and Priest, which are the parts of that principality for the salvation of others.
  13. Hebrews 2:10 The Chieftain, who as he is chiefest in dignity, so is he the first begotten from among the dead, amongst many brethren.
  14. Hebrews 2:11 The ground of both the former arguments: for neither should we be sons through him, neither could he be consecrated through afflictions, unless he hath been made man like unto us. But because this Sonhood dependeth not upon nature only, for no man is accompted the son of God, unless that besides that he is a son of a man, he be also Christ’s brother, (which is by sanctification, that is, by becoming one with Christ, who sanctifieth us through faith) therefore the Apostle maketh mention of the sanctifier, to wit, of Christ, and of them that are sanctified, to wit, of all the faithful, whom therefore Christ vouchsafeth to call brethren.
  15. Hebrews 2:11 He useth the time that now is, to show us that we are yet still going on, and increasing in this sanctification, and by sanctification he meaneth our separation from the rest of the world, our cleansing from sin, and our dedication wholly unto God, all which Christ alone worketh in us.
  16. Hebrews 2:11 One, of one selfsame nature of man.
  17. Hebrews 2:12 That which he taught before of the incarnation of the sanctifier, he applieth to the prophetical office.
  18. Hebrews 2:13 He applieth the same to the kingly power of Christ in delivering his from the power of the devil and death.
  19. Hebrews 2:13 I will commit myself to him, and to his defense.
  20. Hebrews 2:13 This Isaiah speaketh of himself and his disciples, but betokening thereby all ministers, as also his disciples signify the whole Church. And therefore seeing Christ is the head of the Prophets and ministers, these words are more rightly verified of him, than of Isaiah.

Hebrews 2:8-13 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. 13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
