1 It was bit by bit and in many different ways that God in olden times spoke to our forefathers through the prophets, 2 but in these latter days He has spoken to us through a Son, whom He had appointed lawful owner of everything, and through whom He had made the worlds. 3 He is the reflection of God's glory and the perfect representation of His being, and continues to uphold the universe by His mighty word. After He had procured man's purification from sins, He took His seat at the right hand of God's majesty, 4 thus proving Himself to be as much superior to angels as the title He has inherited is superior to theirs.
5 For to what angel did God ever say, "You are my Son, today I have become your Father"? 6 Or again, "I will become His Father, and He shall become my Son"? But when He brings again His first-born Son into the world, He says, "And let all the angels worship Him." 7 However, regarding the angels He says: "He turns His angels into winds, and His attendants into flames of fire."
8 But regarding the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, will stand forever and ever; a righteous scepter is the scepter of His kingdom. 9 You loved the right and hated wrong; so God, your God, anointed you, with oil of exultation beyond all your companions."
10 And: "You, Lord, in the beginning founded the earth, and the heavens are the works of your hands. 11 They will perish, but you always remain; they all will grow old like a coat, 12 And you will fold them up just like a robe, and they will be changed like the changing of one's coat, but you are the same, and your years will never cease."
13 But to what angel did He ever say: "Just keep your seat at my right hand, until I make your foes a footstool for your feet"?
