Hebrews 1

The Supremacy of God’s Son

Long ago, at many times and a in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but b in these last days c he has spoken to us by d his Son, whom he appointed e the heir of all things, f through whom also he created g the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and h the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. i After making purification for sins j he sat down k at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name l he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

For to which of the angels did God ever say,

m You are my Son,
today I have begotten you”?

Or again,

n I will be to him a father,
and he shall be to me a son”?

And again, when he brings o the firstborn into the world, he says,

p Let all God’s angels worship him.”

Of the angels he says,

q “He makes his angels winds,
and his ministers a flame of fire.”

But of the Son he says,

r Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God s has anointed you
with t the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”

10 And,

u You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
11 they will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment,
12 like a robe you will roll them up,
like a garment they will be changed.
Some manuscripts omit  like a garment

But you are w the same,
and your years will have no end.”

13 And to which of the angels has he ever said,

x Sit at my right hand
y until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits z sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to aa inherit salvation?
