LEB(i) 1 Although* God spoke long ago in many parts* and in many ways to the fathers by the prophets, 2 in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the world,* 3 who is the radiance of his glory and the representation of his essence, sustaining all things by the word of power.* When he* had made purification for sins through him, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become by so much better than the angels, by as much as he has inherited a more excellent name than theirs. 5 For to which of the angels did he ever say,
"You are my son, today I have begotten you,"*
and again,
"I will be his father*, and he will be my son*"?* 6 And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,
"And let all the angels of God worship him."* 7 And concerning the angels he says,
"The one who makes his angels winds, and his servants a flame of fire,"* 8 but concerning the Son,
"Your throne, O God, is forever and ever*, and the scepter of righteous is the scepter of your kingdom. 9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; because of this God, your God, has anointed you with the olive oil of joy more than your companions.* 10 And,
"You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the works of your hands; 11 they will perish, but you continue, and they will all become old like a garment, 12 and like a robe you will roll them up, and like a garment they will be changed; but you are the same, and your years will not run out."* 13 But to which of the angels has he ever said,
"Sit down at my right hand, until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet."* 14 Are they not all spirits engaged in special service, sent on assignment for the sake of those who are going to inherit salvation?
