HEBREWS 1*

1God, Who spoke in various stages and in various ways to the fathers by the prophets in past times,

2has spoken to us in the last of these days by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He also prepared the ages.

3His Son (who is the reflection of the glory and representation of His essence and who upholds everything by the Word of His power), having accomplished a cleansing from sins, sat down on the right side of the Majesty on high.

4He became so much better than the [spirit] messengers, even as much as the name which he has inherited is more distinguished than theirs.

5As a matter of fact, did He [God] ever say to any of the [spirit] messengers, Psalm 2:7:You are My Son; today I have begotten you,” and also, II Samuel 7:14: I will be a Father to him and he will be a Son to Me”?

6Furthermore, at the time when He brought the firstborn into the world, He said, “Let all the [spirit] messengers of God bow down to him.”

7Moreover, with reference to the [spirit] messengers, He said, Psalm 104:4: He makes spirits His messengers and flaming fire His ministers.

8However, with reference to the Son: Psalm 45:6-7:Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever. The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

9“You [the king] loved justice, and you hated lawlessness. Because of this, God, even your God, anointed you with the oil of gladness above your companions.

10And: Psalm 102:25-27: You Lord, at the beginning, laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the works of Your hands.

11They will perish, but You remain. They will all become old like a piece of clothing.

12You will roll them up as if they were a mantel {+ like a piece of clothing}, and they will be changed, but You are the same and Your years will not come to an end.

13Did He ever say to any of the [spirit] messengers, Psalm 110:1: Sit on my right side until I make your enemies the footstool of your feet”?

14Are they [the spirit messengers] not all attending spirits sent out to minister for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation [deliverance].
