1 GOD, who at many times and in many ways spoke anciently to the fathers by the prophets, 2 in these last days spoke to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds, 3 who being the brightness of his glory and the express image of his substance, and sustaining all things by the word of his power, having made a purification of sins, sat down on the right hand of the majesty on high, 4 being made as much greater than the angels as he has inherited a more excellent name than they.
5 For to which of the angels said he at any time, You are my Son, to-day have I begotten you? And again, I will be to him a Father and he shall be to me a Son? 6 And again, when be brings the first-born into the world he says, And let all the angels of God worship him. 7 And of the angels he says, Who makes his angels winds, and his ministers a flame of fire;
8 but of the Son, Thy throne, God, is forever and ever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a sceptre of rectitude. 9 Thou hast loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, thy God, anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy companions.
10 And thou, Lord, in the beginning didst build from its foundations the earth, and the heavens are works of thy hands; 11 they shall perish, but thou shalt continue; and they shall all become old like a garment, 12 and like a mantle thou shalt fold them up, and they shall be changed, but thou art the same and thy years shall not fail.
13 And to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand till I make thy enemies thy footstool?
