2:7-9 

7
 Thou 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:

8 Thou 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.

9 But 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.  KJV


7 "You have brought him a little lower than The Angels. You have placed glory and honor on his head and you have authorized him over the works of your hands."

8 "You have subjected all things under his feet." But by this, that 'He subjected everything to him', it does not leave anything which is not subjected; but now, we do not yet see that everything is subjected to him.

9 But we see that he is Yeshua, who became a little lower than the Angels for the suffering of his death, and glory and honor are placed upon his head, for God himself, by his grace, tasted death in the place of every person.  ARAM


6 ·It is written in the Scriptures [L Someone has testified somewhere],

“·Why are people even important to you [L What is man/humanity that you remember/think about him/them]?
    ·Why do you take care of human beings [L Or the son of man/children of Adam that you care for/about them]?
  7 You made ·them [or him] ·a little [or for a little while] lower than the angels
    and crowned ·them [or him] with glory and honor.
  8 You ·put all things under their control [L subjected everything under his feet;].”

[L For] When God ·put everything under their control [L subjected everything to him], there was nothing left ·that they did not rule [uncontrolled; not subjected]. Still, [L now; at the present time] we do not yet see ·them [or him; C referring to humanity] ruling over everything. 9 But we see Jesus, who for a short time was made lower than the angels. This was so that, by God’s grace, he could ·die [L taste death] for everyone. And now, because he suffered and died, he is ·wearing a crown of [L crowned with] glory and honor. [C Jesus fulfills humanity’s destiny: to be crowned with glory and honor.]  EXB


7 You made him a little lower than the angels.
    You crowned him with glory and honor.
8 You put everything under his control.”

When God put everything under his Son’s control, nothing was left out.

However, at the present time we still don’t see everything under his Son’s control. 9 Jesus was made a little lower than the angels, but we see him crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death. Through God’s kindness he died on behalf of everyone.  GW

7 You made us lower
than the angels
    for a while.
Yet you have crowned us
    with glory and honor.
8 And you have put everything
    under our power!”

God has put everything under our power and has not left anything out of our power. But we still don’t see it all under our power. 9 What we do see is Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels. Because of God’s wonderful kindness, Jesus died for everyone. And now that Jesus has suffered and died, he is crowned with glory and honor!  CEV

7-8 Though he was born below the heavenly messengers,
    You honored the son of man like royalty,
    crowning him with glory and honor,
Raising him above all earthly things,
    placing everything under his feet.

                                                                                                                                    When God placed everything under the son of man,
He didn’t leave out anything.
Maybe we don’t see all that happening yet; 9 but what we do see is Jesus, born a little lower than the heavenly messengers, who is now crowned with glory and honor because He willingly suffered and died. And He did that so that through God’s grace, He might taste death on behalf of everyone.  VOICE


5:8  

8
 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;  KJV

8 And although he is The Son, he learned obedience by the fear and the suffering which he endured;  ARAM

8 Although He was a Son, He learned [active, special] obedience through what He suffered.  AMP

8 Jesus is God’s own Son, but still he had to suffer before he could learn what it really means to obey God.  CEV

8 Even though Jesus was ·the Son of God [or a son; C with all the rights and privileges of an heir], he learned obedience by what he suffered [C through total obedience to God, Jesus achieved the glorified or perfected state God originally intended for human beings].  EXB

8 And even though Jesus was God’s Son, he had to learn from experience what it was like to obey when obeying meant suffering.  TLB

8 Though he was God’s Son, he learned trusting-obedience by what he suffered, just as we do.  MSG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



9:22 

22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.  KJV

22 Because all things are purged by blood in The Written Law, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.  ARAM

22 As Moses’ Teachings tell us, blood was used to cleanse almost everything, because if no blood is shed, no sins can be forgiven.  GW

18-22 Even the first plan required a death to set it in motion. After Moses had read out all the terms of the plan of the law—God’s “will”—he took the blood of sacrificed animals and, in a solemn ritual, sprinkled the document and the people who were its beneficiaries. And then he attested its validity with the words, “This is the blood of the covenant commanded by God.” He did the same thing with the place of worship and its furniture. Moses said to the people, “This is the blood of the covenant God has established with you.” Practically everything in a will hinges on a death. That’s why blood, the evidence of death, is used so much in our tradition, especially regarding forgiveness of sins. MSG


11:1 

11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  KJV

11 Faith is the reality of what we hope for, the proof of what we don’t see.  CEB

11 Faith is what makes real the things we hope for. It is proof of what we cannot see.  ERV

11 Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].  AMP

11 Faith means ·being sure [the assurance; or the tangible reality; or the sure foundation] of the things we hope for and ·knowing that something is real even if we do not see it [the conviction/assurance/evidence about things not seen].  EXB

11 Trusting is being confident of what we hope for, convinced about things we do not see.  CJB

11 Faith assures us of things we expect and convinces us of the existence of things we cannot see.  GW

11 Faith is the assurance of things you have hoped for, the absolute conviction that there are realities you’ve never seen.  VOICE



11:6 

 

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.  KJV

6. But without faith, no one can please God, for whoever is brought near to God must believe that he exists and that he is the rewarder of those who seek him.  ARAM

6 And without trusting, it is impossible to be well pleasing to God, because whoever approaches him must trust that he does exist and that he becomes a Rewarder to those who seek him out.  CJB

6 But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].  AMP

6 No one can please God without faith. Whoever goes to God must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who seek him.  GW

5-6 It was because of his faith that Enoch was promoted to the eternal world without experiencing death. He disappeared from this world because God promoted him, and before that happened his reputation was that “he pleased God”. And without faith it is impossible to please him. The man who approaches God must have faith in two things, first that God exists and secondly that it is worth a man’s while to try to find God.  PHILLIPS


12:1 

12 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,  KJV

12 Why then, since we are watched from above by such a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of all that weighs us down, of the sinful habit that clings so closely, and run, with all endurance, the race for which we are entered.  KNOX

12 Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,  AMP


12:6 

6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.  KJV

6 For Adonai disciplines those he loves
and whips everyone he accepts as a son.”  CJB

6 because the Lord disciplines whomever he loves,
and he punishes every son or daughter whom he accepts.  CEB

Hebrews 12:6 Proverbs 3:11–12

4-11 In this all-out match against sin, others have suffered far worse than you, to say nothing of what Jesus went through—all that bloodshed! So don’t feel sorry for yourselves. Or have you forgotten how good parents treat children, and that God regards you as his children?

My dear child, don’t shrug off God’s discipline,
but don’t be crushed by it either.
It’s the child he loves that he disciplines;
the child he embraces, he also corrects.

God is educating you; that’s why you must never drop out. He’s treating you as dear children. This trouble you’re in isn’t punishment; it’s training, the normal experience of children. Only irresponsible parents leave children to fend for themselves. Would you prefer an irresponsible God? We respect our own parents for training and not spoiling us, so why not embrace God’s training so we can truly live? While we were children, our parents did what seemed best to them. But God is doing what is best for us, training us to live God’s holy best. At the time, discipline isn’t much fun. It always feels like it’s going against the grain. Later, of course, it pays off handsomely, for it’s the well-trained who find themselves mature in their relationship with God.  MSG


12:29 

29 For our God is a consuming fire.  KJV

29 because our God is like a fire that can destroy us.  ERV

 

28-29 Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. He’s actively cleaning house, torching all that needs to burn, and he won’t quit until it’s all cleansed. God himself is Fire!  MSG


13:2 

2
 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.  KJV

2 And do not forget kindness to strangers, for by this, some who, while they were unaware, were worthy to receive Angels.  ARAM

2 Be sure to welcome strangers into your home. By doing this, some people have welcomed angels as guests, without even knowing it.  CEV

2 Take strangers to your home and care for them. Some people who have done this found out the strangers were angels.  WE

2
 Don’t forget to extend your hospitality to all—even to strangers—for as you know, some have unknowingly shown kindness to heavenly messengers in this way.  VOICE

2 but don’t forget to be friendly to outsiders; for in so doing, some people, without knowing it, have entertained angels.  CJB

2 Don’t neglect to open up your homes to guests, because by doing this some have been hosts to angels without knowing it.  CEB

2 Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers [in the brotherhood—being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously], for through it some have entertained angels without knowing it.  AMP

2 Don’t forget to show hospitality to believers you don’t know. By doing this some believers have shown hospitality to angels without being aware of it.  GW
