Bible: Heb 2:11-18

2:11 For indeed he who makes holy and those being made holy all have the same origin, 1  and so 2  he is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, 3  2:12 saying, “I will proclaim your name to my brothers; 4  in the midst of the assembly I will praise you.” 5  2:13 Again he says, 6  “I will be confident in him,” and again, “Here I am, 7  with 8  the children God has given me.” 9  2:14 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, he likewise shared in 10  their humanity, 11  so that through death he could destroy 12  the one who holds the power of death (that is, the devil), 2:15 and set free those who were held in slavery all their lives by their fear of death. 2:16 For surely his concern is not for angels, but he is concerned for Abraham’s descendants. 2:17 Therefore he had 13  to be made like his brothers and sisters 14  in every respect, so that he could become a merciful and faithful high priest in things relating to God, to make atonement 15  for the sins of the people. 2:18 For since he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.
