1: God having spoken in many parts and in many ways formerly to the fathers in the prophets, 2: at the end of these days has spoken to us in [the person of the] Son, whom he has established heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3: who being [the] effulgence of his glory and [the] expression of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, having made [by himself] the purification of sins, set himself down on the right hand of the greatness on high, 4: taking a place by so much better than the angels, as he inherits a name more excellent than they. 5: For to which of the angels said he ever, Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten thee? and again, I will be to him for father, and he shall be to me for son? 6: and again, when he brings in the firstborn into the habitable world, he says, And let all God's angels worship him. 7: And as to the angels he says, Who makes his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire; 8: but as to the Son, Thy throne, O God, [is] to the age of the age, and a sceptre of uprightness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9: Thou hast loved righteousness and hast hated lawlessness; therefore God, thy God, has anointed thee with oil of gladness above thy companions. 10: And, Thou in the beginning, Lord, hast founded the earth, and works of thy hands are the heavens. 11: They shall perish, but thou continuest still; and they all shall grow old as a garment, 12: and as a covering shalt thou roll them up, and they shall be changed; but thou art the Same, and thy years shall not fail. 13: But as to which of the angels said he ever, Sit at my right hand until I put thine enemies [as] footstool of thy feet? 14: Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out for service on account of those who shall inherit salvation?
