The Holy Bible - The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Hebrews, Chapter 2 (Latin)
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.
2For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
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;
4God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
5For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
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?
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:
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.
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.
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.
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,
12Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
13And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
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;
15And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
16For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
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.
18For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
1propterea abundantius oportet observare nos ea quae audivimus ne forte pereffluamus
2si enim qui per angelos dictus est sermo factus est firmus et omnis praevaricatio et inoboedientia accepit iustam mercedis retributionem
3quomodo nos effugiemus si tantam neglexerimus salutem quae cum initium accepisset enarrari per Dominum ab eis qui audierunt in nos confirmata est
4contestante Deo signis et portentis et variis virtutibus et Spiritus Sancti distributionibus secundum suam voluntatem
5non enim angelis subiecit orbem terrae futurum de quo loquimur
6testatus est autem in quodam loco quis dicens quid est homo quod memor es eius aut filius hominis quoniam visitas eum
7minuisti eum paulo minus ab angelis gloria et honore coronasti eum et constituisti eum super opera manuum tuarum
8omnia subiecisti sub pedibus eius in eo enim quod ei omnia subiecit nihil dimisit non subiectum ei nunc autem necdum videmus omnia subiecta ei
9eum autem qui modico quam angeli minoratus est videmus Iesum propter passionem mortis gloria et honore coronatum ut gratia Dei pro omnibus gustaret mortem
10decebat enim eum propter quem omnia et per quem omnia qui multos filios in gloriam adduxerat auctorem salutis eorum per passiones consummare
11qui enim sanctificat et qui sanctificantur ex uno omnes propter quam causam non confunditur fratres eos vocare dicens
12nuntiabo nomen tuum fratribus meis in medio ecclesiae laudabo te
13et iterum ego ero fidens in eum et iterum ecce ego et pueri mei quos mihi dedit Deus
14quia ergo pueri communicaverunt sanguini et carni et ipse similiter participavit hisdem ut per mortem destrueret eum qui habebat mortis imperium id est diabolum
15et liberaret eos qui timore mortis per totam vitam obnoxii erant servituti
16nusquam enim angelos adprehendit sed semen Abrahae adprehendit
17unde debuit per omnia fratribus similare ut misericors fieret et fidelis pontifex ad Deum ut repropitiaret delicta populi
18in eo enim in quo passus est ipse temptatus potens est eis qui temptantur auxiliari
