1 God, who at sundry times, and various ways, spake of old unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken to us by his Son, 2 whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds. 3 Who being the refulgence of his glory and the imprest image of his person, and sustaining all things by his powerful word, having by Himself performed the purging away of our sins, sat down at the right hand of the majesty on high. 4 Being as much superior to the angels, as He inheriteth a name more excellent than they.
5 For to which of the angels did He ever say, "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee?" and again, "I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to me a Son?" 6 and when He again introduceth the First-born into the world, he saith, "And let all the angels of God worship Him." 7 And as to the angels He saith, "Who maketh his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire:"
8 but to the Son, "Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a sceptre of righteousness: 9 thou lovest righteousness and hatest iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thine associates."
10 And in another place, "Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast founded the earth, and the heavens are the works of thy hands: 11 they shall perish, but thou remainest; and they shall all grow old as a garment, 12 and as a mantle wilt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed; but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail."
13 But to which of the angels hath He ever said, "Sit thou at my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?"
