Murdock(i) 1 IN many ways, and many forms, God anciently conversed with our fathers, by the prophets: 2 But in these latter days, he hath conversed with us, by his Son; whom he hath constituted heir of all things, and by whom he made the worlds; 3 who is the splendor of his glory, and the image of himself, and upholdeth all by the energy of his word; and by himself he made a purgation of sins, and sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high. 4 And he is altogether superior to the angels, as he hath also inherited a name which excelleth theirs. 5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, Thou art my SON, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6 And again, when bringing the first begotten into the world, he said: Let all the angels of God worship him. 7 But of the angels he thus said: Who made his angels a wind, and his ministers a flaming fire. 8 But of the Son he said: Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; a righteous sceptre is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9 Thou hast loved rectitude, and hated iniquity; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness more than thy associates. 10 And again, Thou hast from the beginning laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of thy hands: 11 they will pass away, but thou endurest; and they all, like a robe, wax old; 12 and like a cloak, thou wilt fold them up. They will be changed; but thou wilt be as thou art, and thy years will not be finished. 13 And to which of the angels did he ever say Sit thou at my right hand, until I shall place thy enemies a footstool under thy feet? 14 Are they not all spirits of ministration, who are sent to minister on account of them that are to inherit life?
