Ivrim 2 – איגרת שאול אל העברים ב


1Therefore we should give earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time they be lost.  2For if HaDavar spoken by Malakhim has been affirmed, and every one who has heard it and transgressed it has received a just reward, 3how shall we escape, if we neglect the very things which are our life, and which were first spoken by Adoneinu, and were proved to us by those who had heard Him, 4and to which Elohim testified with signs and wonders, and with various miracles, and with the gift of The Ru’akh HaKodesh given according to His will?  

5For He has not put into subjection to the Malakhim the Olam Haba, whereof we speak.  6But as the scripture testifies, saying, “What is man that You are mindful of him?  And Ben HaAdam, that You visit Him?  7For You have made Him a little lower than the Malakhim, and have crowned Him with Kavod and honor, and have set Him ruler over the works of your hands; 8You have put all things in subjection under His feet.” By putting all things under His control, He left nothing that He did not put under subjection to Him.  But now we do not see yet that all things are in subjection to Him.  9We see that He is Yeshua, who humbled Himself to become a little lower than the Malakhim through His suffering and His death, but now He is crowned with Kavod and honor; for He, separated from Elohim, tasted death for the sake of every man. 

10And it was suitable and proper for Him, in whose hand is everything, and for whom are all things, to bring many sons to Kavod, so that from the very beginning of their lives they are made perfect through sufferings.  11For both He who consecrates and those who are consecrated are all of one origin; for this reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12saying, “I will declare Your Name to my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise You.”   13And again,  “I will put my trust  in  Him.”  And again, “Behold me, and the children which Elohim has given me.”

14Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also likewise partook of the same; and by His death He has destroyed him who had the power of Mavet, that is, HaSatan.  15And has released them who through fear of Mavet all their lives were subject to slavery.  16For He did not take on Himself the likeness of Malakhim; but he did take on Himself the offspring of Avraham.  17Therefore, it was suitable and proper that in every thing He should resemble His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful Kohen Gadol in the things of Elohim, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.  18For since He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to help others who are tempted.
