1 Therefore we are obligated to be more exceedingly heedful in what we have heard, that we fall not.
2 For if the word which was uttered by angels was confirmed, and every one who heard it, and transgressed against it, received a just retribution,
3 how shall we escape if we despise those (words) which themselves are our salvation? Those which began by our Lord to be spoken, and by them who from him heard them in us were confirmed,
4 when Aloha witnessed concerning them by signs, and by miracles, and by various powers, and by distributed gifts of the Spirit of Holiness, that were bestowed according to his will.
5 For it was not to the angels he subjected the world which is future, of which we discourse.
6 But, as the scripture testifieth and saith, What is man, that thou rememberedst him, and the Son of man, that thou didst visit him?
7 Thou didst humble him (to be) less than the angels; glory and honour hast thou placed upon his head, and hast empowered him over the work of thy hands,
8 and every thing hast thou put in subjection under his feet. in this, that he subjected every thing to him, he hath left nothing which he hath not subjected. Yet hitherto we see not that every thing is subjected to him.
9 But him who was humbled to be less than the angels, we see to be JESHU himself, for the sake of the passion of his death; and glory and honour set upon his head; for He Aloha, in his grace, for every man hath tasted death!
10 For it was proper to him by whose hand are all, and on account of whom all are, (and who) would lead many sons to his glory, that the Prince of their salvation by sufferings should be perfected.
11 For he who sanctified, and they who are sanctified, are all from one: wherefore he has not been ashamed to call them his brethren.
12 (As) when he saith, I will announce thy name unto my brethren, and in the midst of the church I will praise thee.
13 And again, I will put my confidence in him. And again, Behold me, and the sons whom thou hast given me, Aloha.
14 Forasmuch as the sons have been made to participate in flesh and blood, he also likewise was made a partaker of these very things; that by his death he might abolish him who held the power of death, who is Satana,
15 and set loose them who in the fear of death had been all their lives subjected to servitude.
16 For not from the angels he took, but from the seed of Abraham he took.
17 Therefore it was right that in every thing he should be rendered like unto his brethren, that he might be compassionate, and a High Priest faithful in to Aloha, and become an expiation for the sins of the people.
18 For in this, that he hath suffered and been tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.
