The Sentence-Flow Diagram of Hebrews 1:5 – 2:18

For to which of the angels  did God ever say,

“You are my Son,

today I have begotten you”?

Or again,

“I will be to him a father,

and he shall be to me a son”?

And again,

when he brings the firstborn

into the world, he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.”

Of the angels he says,

“He makes his angels winds,

and his ministers a flame of fire.”

But of the Son 

            he says,

“Your throne, O God,           is forever and ever,

the scepter of uprightness  is the scepter of your kingdom.

                    You have loved         righteousness and

                                    hated              wickedness;

                                                therefore God, your God, has anointed you

                                                                                                with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”

10 And,

                        “You, Lord,    laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,

                                    and     the heavens are the work of your hands;

11                                                         they will perish,

                                                            but you remain;

                                                            they will all wear out like a garment,

12                                                                     like a robe you will roll them up,

                                                                        like a garment they will be changed.

                                                            But you are the same,

                                                            and your years will have no end.”

13 And to which of                the angels

            has he ever said,

                        “Sit at my right hand

                                    until I make your enemies a footstool      for your feet”?

14                                                                    Are they not all ministering spirits 

                                                            sent out to serve for the sake of those

                                                            who are to inherit salvation?

Warning Against Neglecting Salvation

2 Therefore we must pay much closer attention

            to what we have heard, 

lest we drift away from it.2

For                                                       since     the message       declared by angels

proved to be reliable,

                        and every transgression or disobedience

                                        received a just retribution,

how 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,

                                                while God also bore witness

                                                            by signs and wonders and

                                                            various miracles and

                                                            by gifts of the Holy Spirit    distributed according to his will.

The Founder of Salvation

For     it was not to angels that God subjected   the world to come,

of which we are speaking.

It has been testified somewhere,

“What is man,                       that you are mindful of him,

or the son of man,                that you care for him?

                                    7  You made him                   for a little while

lower than the angels;

you have crowned him

with glory and honor,

                                  putting 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.

9                                  But 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.

10 For 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.11 

For he who sanctifies and

those who are sanctified     all have one source.

That is why he is not ashamed to call them brothers,12 saying,

“I will tell of your name to my brothers;

in the midst of the congregation

I will sing your praise.”

                                                                                          13 And again,

“I will put my trust in him.”

And again,

“Behold, I and the children God has given me.”

                                                                                          14 Since 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,

                                                                                                                              15 and deliver all those

who through fear of death              were subject to lifelong slavery.

16 For surely              it is not angels that he helps,

But he helps the offspring of Abraham.17 

                                                Therefore       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.

                                                                                                                                                18 For because he himself has suffered when tempted, 

he is able to help those who are being tempted.
