Hebrews 2:16
Context
Jesus Made Like His Brothers

5For to the angels has he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. 6But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that you are mindful of him? or the son of man that you visit him? 7You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor, and did set him over the works of your hands: 8You have 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. 9But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. 10For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11For both he that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brothers, 12Saying, I will declare your name to my brothers, in the middle of the church will I sing praise to you. 13And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God has given me. 14For as much 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; 15And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 16For truly he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. 17Why in all things it behooved him to be made like to his brothers, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. 18For in that he himself has suffered being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted.
