5Now it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking. 6It has been testified somewhere,
"What is man, that you are mindful of him,or the son of man, that you care for him? 7You made him for a little while lower than the angels;you have crowned him with glory and honor,Some manuscripts insert and set him over the works of your hands 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.
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.
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.
