Hebrews chapter 1

1
Long ago God spoke to the fathers by the prophets at different times and in different ways.
2
In these last days, He has spoken to us by [His] Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things and through whom He made the universe.
3
He is the radiance of His glory, the exact expression of His nature, and He sustains all things by His powerful word. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
4
So He became higher in rank than the angels, just as the name He inherited is superior to theirs.
5
For to which of the angels did He ever say, You are My Son; today I have become Your Father, or again, I will be His Father, and He will be My Son?
6
When He again brings His firstborn into the world, He says, And all God's angels must worship Him.
7
And about the angels He says: He makes His angels winds, and His servants a fiery flame;
8
but about the Son: Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
9
You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; this is why God, Your God, has anointed You, rather than Your companions, with the oil of joy.
10
And: In the beginning, Lord, You established the earth, and the heavens are the works of Your hands;
11
they will perish, but You remain. They will all wear out like clothing;
12
You will roll them up like a cloak, and they will be changed like a robe. But You are the same, and Your years will never end.
13
Now to which of the angels has He ever said: Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool?
14
Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve those who are going to inherit salvation?

Hebrews chapter 2

1
We must therefore pay even more attention to what we have heard, so that we will not drift away.
2
For if the message spoken through angels was legally binding, and every transgression and disobedience received a just punishment,
3
how will we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was first spoken by the Lord and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him.
4
At the same time, God also testified by signs and wonders, various miracles, and distributions [of gifts] from the Holy Spirit according to His will.
5
For He has not subjected to angels the world to come that we are talking about.
6
But one has somewhere testified: What is man, that You remember him, or the son of man, that You care for him?
7
You made him lower than the angels for a short time; You crowned him with glory and honor
8
and subjected everything under his feet. For in subjecting everything to him, He left nothing not subject to him. As it is, we do not yet see everything subjected to him.
9
But we do see Jesus-- made lower than the angels for a short time so that by God's grace He might taste death for everyone-- crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death.
10
For it was fitting, in bringing many sons to glory, that He, for whom and through whom all things exist, should make the source of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
11
For the One who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. That is why He is not ashamed to call them brothers,
12
saying: I will proclaim Your name to My brothers; I will sing hymns to You in the congregation.
13
Again, I will trust in Him. And again, Here I am with the children God gave Me.
14
Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, He also shared in these, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death-- that is, the Devil--
15
and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death.
16
For it is clear that He does not reach out to help angels, but to help Abraham's offspring.
17
Therefore He had to be like His brothers in every way, so that He could become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
18
For since He Himself was tested and has suffered, He is able to help those who are tested.

Hebrews chapter 3

1
Therefore, holy brothers and companions in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession;
2
He was faithful to the One who appointed Him, just as Moses was in all God's household.
3
For Jesus is considered worthy of more glory than Moses, just as the builder has more honor than the house.
4
Now every house is built by someone, but the One who built everything is God.
5
Moses was faithful as a servant in all God's household, as a testimony to what would be said [in the future].
6
But Christ was faithful as a Son over His household, whose household we are if we hold on to the courage and the confidence of our hope.
7
Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: Today, if you hear His voice,
8
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the desert,
9
where your fathers tested Me, tried [ Me], and saw My works
10
for 40 years. Therefore I was provoked with this generation and said, "They always go astray in their hearts, and they have not known My ways."
11
So I swore in My anger, "They will not enter My rest."
12
Watch out, brothers, so that there won't be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart that departs from the living God.
13
But encourage each other daily, while it is still called today, so that none of you is hardened by sin's deception.
14
For we have become companions of the Messiah if we hold firmly until the end the reality that we had at the start.
15
As it is said: Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.
16
For who heard and rebelled? Wasn't it really all who came out of Egypt under Moses?
17
And with whom was He "provoked for 40 years"? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert?
18
And to whom did He "swear that they would not enter His rest," if not those who disobeyed?
19
So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
