2:1 Therefore it behooveth us to keep more plenteously those things, that we have heard, lest peradventure we float away. Wherefore we ought much more to attend unto those things which we have heard, lest we be split. Wherefore we ought diligently to give heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2:2 For if that word that was said by angels, was made firm, and each trespassing, and unobedience took just retribution of meed, For if the word which was spoken by angels was stedfast: and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence to reward: For if the word spoken by Angels was stedfast, and every transgression, and disobedience received a just recompence of reward, For if the word spoken by Angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward:
2:3 how shall we escape, if we despise so great an health? Which, when it had taken beginning to be told out by the Lord, of them that heard is confirmed into us. how shall we escape if we despise so great health? which at the first began to be preached of the lord himself, and afterward was confirmed to us-ward, by them that heard it, How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation, which at the first began to be preached by the Lord, and afterward was confirmed unto us by them that heard him, How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him,
2:4 God together witnessing by signs, and wonders, and great marvels, and divers virtues, and distributions of the Holy Ghost, after his will. god bearing witness thereto, both with signs and wonders also, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the holy ghost, according to his own will. God bearing witness thereto, both with signs and wonders, & with divers miracles, and gifts of the holy Ghost, according to his own will? God also bearing them witness, both with signs & wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the holy Ghost, according to his own will?
2:5 Forsooth not to angels God subjected the roundness of the earth to come, of which we speak. He hath not unto the angels put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak: For he hath not put in subjection unto the Angels the world to come, whereof we speak. For unto the Angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
2:6 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? but one in a certain place witnessed, saying: What is man, that thou art mindful of him: other the son of man, that thou visitest him? But one in a certain place witnessed, saying, What is man, that thou shouldest be mindful of him! or the son of man that thou wouldest consider him! But one in a certain place testified, saying: What is man, that thou art mindful of him: or the Son of man that thou visitest him?
2:7 Thou madest him a little less from angels; thou hast crowned him with glory and honour; and thou hast ordained him upon the works of thine hands. After thou hadst for a season made him lower than the angels: thou crownedst him with honour and glory, and hast set him above the works of thy hands. Thou madest him a little inferior to the Angels: thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and hast set him above the works of thine hands. Thou madest him a little lower than the Angels, thou crownedst him with glory and honor, and didst set him over the works of thy hands.
2:8 Thou hast made all things subject under his feet. And in that that he subjected all things to him, he left nothing unsubjected to him. But now we see not yet all things subject to him; Thou hast 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 yet see not all things subdued unto him: 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. But we yet see not all things subdued unto him. 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.
2:9 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. but that Jesus which for a season was made less than the angels, we see through the punishment of death crowned with glory and honour: that he by the grace of god, should taste of death for all men. But we see Jesus crowned with glory & honour, which was made a little inferior to the Angels, through the suffering of death, that by God’s grace he might taste death for all men. 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.
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 by passions. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, after that he had brought many sons unto glory, that he should make the lord of their health perfect through afflictions: For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, seeing that he brought many children unto glory, that he should consecrate the Prince of their salvation through afflictions. 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.
2:11 For he that halloweth, and they that be hallowed, be all of one; for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, Forasmuch as he which sanctifieth, and they which are sanctified, are all of one. For which cause’s sake, he is not ashamed to call them brethren For he that sanctifieth, & they which are sanctified, are all of one: wherefore he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 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,
2:12 saying, I shall tell thy name to my brethren; in the middle of the church I shall praise thee. saying: I will declare thy name unto my brethren, and in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. Saying, I will declare thy Name unto my brethren: in the midst of the Church will I sing praises to thee. Saying, I will declare thy Name unto my brethren, in the midst of the Church will I sing praise unto thee.
2:13 And again, I shall be trusting into him; and again, Lo! I and my children, which God gave to me. And again: I will put my trust in him. And again: behold here am I and the children which god hath given me. And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold, here am I, and the children which God hath given me. And again, I will put my trust in him: and again, Behold, I, and the children which God hath given me.
2:14 Therefore for children communed to flesh and blood, and he also took part of the same, that by death he should destroy him that had lordship of death, that is to say, the devil, Forasmuch then as the children were partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part with them, for to put down through death him that had lordship over death that is to say the devil. Forasmuch then as the children were partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part with them, that he might destroy through death, him that had the power of death, that is the devil, Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same, that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil:
2:15 and should deliver them that by dread of death, by all life were bound to servage. And that he might deliver them which through fear of death all their lifetime were in danger of bondage. And that he might deliver all them, which for fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. And deliver them, who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
2:16 And he took to never angels, but he took to the seed of Abraham. For he in no place taketh on him the angels: but the seed of Abraham taketh he on him. For he in no sort took the Angels, but he took the seed of Abraham. For verily he took not on him the nature of Angels: but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
2:17 Wherefore he ought to be likened to brethren by all things, that he should be made merciful and a faithful bishop to God, that he should be merciful to the trespasses of the people. Wherefore in all things it became him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be merciful, and a faithful high priest in things concerning god, for to purge the people’s sins. Wherefore in all things it became him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be merciful, and a faithful high Priest in things concerning God, that he might make reconciliation for the sins of the people. Wherefore in all things it behooved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high Priest, in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
2:18 For in that thing in which he suffered, and was tempted, he is mighty to help also them that be tempted. For in that he himself suffered, and was tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted. For in that he suffered, and was tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted. For in that he himself hath suffered, being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
