1 God, having in many parts and many ways spoken, of old, to the fathers in the prophets, 2 at the end of these days spake to us in His Son, Whom He appointed Heir of all things, through Whom also He constituted the ages; 3 Who, being an effulgence of His glory and an exact expression of His substance, and upholding 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 having become by so much superior to the angels, as He hath inherited a more excellent name than they.
5 For to whom of the angels said He at any time, "You are My Son; I this day have begotten you?" And again, "I will be to him a Father; and He shall be to me a Son?" 6 But, when again He introduces the First-born into the inhabited earth, He saith, "And let all the angels of God worship Him." 7 And respecting the angels He saith, "Who maketh His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire";
8 but respecting the Son, "Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever"; and, "A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Thy Kingdom; 9 Thou lovedst righteousness, and hatedst iniquity; therefore, God, Thy God, anointed Thee with the oil of gladness above Thy fellows";
10 and, "Thou, Lord, in the beginning didst lay the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the works of Thy hands. 11 They shall perish, but Thou continuest; and they will all become old as does a garment; 12 and as a mantle Thou wilt roll them up, as a garment also they shall be changed; but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail."
13 But to whom of the angels hath He ever said, "Sit on My right hand, until I make your enemies the footstool of your feet?"
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth for service, for the sake of those about to inherit salvation?
