1 God, who at sundry times and ain divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath bin these last days cspoken unto us by his Son, dwhom he hath appointed heir of all things, eby whom also he made the worlds;
3 hWho being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and gupholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, fsat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as ihe hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, jThou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, kI will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6 And again, when he bringeth in lthe firstbegotten into the world, he saith, mAnd let all the angels of God worship him. 7 And of the angels he saith, nWho maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. 8 But unto the Son he saith, oThy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. 9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, phath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
10 And, qThou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: 11 rThey shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; 12 And as a vesture shalt 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 said he at any time, sSit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
