Hebrews 2:11

2:11 For indeed he who makes holy and those being made holy all have the same origin, 1  and so 2  he is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, 3 

Hebrews 2:14

2:14 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, he likewise shared in 4  their humanity, 5  so that through death he could destroy 6  the one who holds the power of death (that is, the devil),

1 tn Grk “are all from one.”

2 tn Grk “for which reason.”

3 tn Grk “brothers,” but the Greek word may be used for “brothers and sisters” as here (cf. BDAG 18 s.v. ἀδελφός 1, where considerable nonbiblical evidence for the plural ἀδελφοί [adelfoi] meaning “brothers and sisters” is cited). The context here also indicates both men and women are in view; note especially the collective τὰ παιδία (ta paidia) in v. 14.

4 tn Or “partook of” (this is a different word than the one in v. 14a).

5 tn Grk “the same.”

6 tn Or “break the power of,” “reduce to nothing.”
