8 and put everything under their feet."[1][2]In putting everything under them,[3] God left nothing that is not subject to them.[3] Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them.[3]

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Hebrews 2:8

Commentary on Hebrews 2:5-9

(Read Hebrews 2:5-9)

Neither the state in which the church is at present, nor its more completely restored state, when the prince of this world shall be cast out, and the kingdoms of the earth become the kingdom of Christ, is left to the government of the angels: Christ will take to him his great power, and will reign. And what is the moving cause of all the kindness God shows to men in giving Christ for them and to them? it is the grace of God. As a reward of Christ's humiliation in suffering death, he has unlimited dominion over all things; thus this ancient scripture was fulfilled in him. Thus God has done wonderful things for us in creation and providence, but for these we have made the basest returns.
