Memory Verses:

 2:10 For it was fitting for him, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 2:11 For indeed he who makes holy and those being made holy all have the same origin, and so he is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, 2:12 saying, ŇI will proclaim your name to my brothers; in the midst of the assembly I will praise you.Ó (Hebrews 2:10-12)


10 原來那為萬物所屬、為萬物所本的、要領 許多的兒子進榮耀裡去、使救他們的元 帥、因受苦難得以完全、本是合宜的 11 因那使人成聖的、和那些得以成聖的、都 是出於一.所以他稱他們為弟兄、也不以 為恥 12 說、『我要將你的名傳與我的弟兄、在會 中我要頌揚你。』(希伯來書 210-12
