Pay Attention to Salvation

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.1Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.1For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.1Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.1We must, therefore, pay even more attention to what we have heard, so that we will not drift away.
2For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment,2For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution,2For if the word spoken through angels proved unalterable, and every transgression and disobedience received a just penalty,2For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;2For if the message spoken through angels was legally binding and every transgression and disobedience received a just punishment,
3how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him.3how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard,3how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard,3How 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;3how 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.

5It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking.5For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking.5For He did not subject to angels the world to come, concerning which we are speaking.5For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.5For He has not subjected to angels the world to come that we are talking about.
6But there is a place where someone has testified: "What is mankind that you are mindful of them, a son of man that you care for him?6It has been testified somewhere, “What is man, that you are mindful of him, or the son of man, that you care for him?6But one has testified somewhere, saying, "WHAT IS MAN, THAT YOU REMEMBER HIM? OR THE SON OF MAN, THAT YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT HIM?6But 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?6But one has somewhere testified: What is man that You remember him, or the son of man that You care for him?
7You made them a little lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honor7You made him for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned him with glory and honor,7"YOU HAVE MADE HIM FOR A LITTLE WHILE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS; YOU HAVE CROWNED HIM WITH GLORY AND HONOR, AND HAVE APPOINTED HIM OVER THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS;7Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:7You made him lower than the angels for a short time; You crowned him with glory and honor
8and put everything under their feet." In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them.8putting everything in subjection under his feet.” Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him.8YOU HAVE PUT ALL THINGS IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET." For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we do not yet see all things subjected to him.8Thou 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.8and subjected everything under his feet. For in subjecting everything to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. As it is, we do not yet see everything subjected to him.

9But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.9But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.9But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.9But 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.9But 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 His suffering in death.
10In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered.10For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.10For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings.10For 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.10For in bringing many sons to glory, it was entirely appropriate that God--all things exist for Him and through Him--should make the source of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
11Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters.11For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one source. That is why he is not ashamed to call them brothers,11For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,11For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,11For the One who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers,
12He says, "I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters; in the assembly I will sing your praises."12saying, “I will tell of your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will sing your praise.”12saying, "I WILL PROCLAIM YOUR NAME TO MY BRETHREN, IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION I WILL SING YOUR PRAISE."12Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.12saying: I will proclaim Your name to My brothers; I will sing hymns to You in the congregation.
13And again, "I will put my trust in him." And again he says, "Here am I, and the children God has given me."13And again, “I will put my trust in him.” And again, “Behold, I and the children God has given me.”13And again, "I WILL PUT MY TRUST IN HIM." And again, "BEHOLD, I AND THE CHILDREN WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN ME."13And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.13Again, I will trust in Him. And again, Here I am with the children God gave Me.

14Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil--14Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil,14Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,14Forasmuch 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;14Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, Jesus also shared in these, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death--that is, the Devil--
15and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.15and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.15and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.15And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.15and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death.
16For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants.16For surely it is not angels that he helps, but he helps the offspring of Abraham.16For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham.16For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.16For it is clear that He does not reach out to help angels, but to help Abraham's offspring.
17For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.17Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.17Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.17Wherefore in all things it behoved 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.17Therefore, 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.
18Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.18For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.18For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.18For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.18For since He Himself was tested and has suffered, He is able to help those who are tested.
