1 In many parts, and many ways, God of old having spoken to the fathers in the prophets,
2 in these last days did speak to us in a Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He did make the ages;
3 who being the brightness of the glory, and the impress of His subsistence, bearing up also the all things by the saying of his might — through himself having made a cleansing of our sins, sat down at the right hand of the greatness in the highest,
4 having become so much better than the messengers, as he did inherit a more excellent name than they.
5 For to which of the messengers said He ever, `My Son thou art — I to-day have begotten thee?` and again, `I will be to him for a father, and he shall be to Me for a son?`
6 and when again He may bring in the first-born to the world, He saith, `And let them bow before him — all messengers of God;`
7 and unto the messengers, indeed, He saith, `Who is making His messengers spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire;`
8 and unto the Son: `Thy throne, O God, [is] to the age of the age; a scepter of righteousness [is] the scepter of thy reign;
9 thou didst love righteousness, and didst hate lawlessness; because of this did He anoint thee — God, thy God — with oil of gladness above thy partners;`
10 and, `Thou, at the beginning, Lord, the earth didst found, and a work of thy hands are the heavens;
11 these shall perish, and Thou dost remain, and all, as a garment, shall become old,
12 and as a mantle Thou shall roll them together, and they shall be changed, and Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail.`
13 And unto which of the messengers said He ever, `Sit at My right hand, till I may make thine enemies thy footstool?`
14 are they not all spirits of service — for ministration being sent forth because of those about to inherit salvation?
