1 Whereas in many parts and in many ways of old God spake unto the fathers in the prophets
2 At the end of these days He hath spoken unto us in his Son,—Whom he hath appointed heir of all things, Through whom also he hath made the ages;
3 Who being an eradiated brightness of his glory And an exact representation of his very being, Also bearing up all things by the utterance of his power, Purification of sins having achieved Sat down on the right hand of the majesty in high places:
4 By so much becoming superior to the messengers, By as much as going beyond them he hath inherited a more distinguished name.
5 For unto which of the messengers said he at any time—My Son art thou, I this day have begotten thee? and again—I will become his father, And he shall become my Son?
6 But whensoever he again introduceth the first-begotten into the habitable earth he saith—And let all God’s messengers worship him!
7 Even as to the messengers indeed he saith—Who maketh his messengers winds And his ministers of state a fiery flame;
8 but as to the Son—Thy throne, O God, is unto times age-abiding, and—A sceptre of equity is the sceptre of his kingdom,
9 Thou hast loved righteousness and hated lawlessness,—For this cause hath God, thy God, anointed thee with the oil of exultation beyond thy partners;
10 and—Thou by way of beginning Lord the earth didst found, And the works of thy hands are the heavens,—
11 They shall perish But thou abidest still, And all as a mantle shall be worn out,
12 And as if a robe wilt thou fold them up,—As a mantle, and they shall be changed; But thou art the same, And thy years shall not fail
13 But to which of the messengers hath he said at any time—Sit thou at my right hand, Until I make thy foes thy footstool?
14 Are they not all spirits doing public service,—for ministry sent forth for the sake of them who are about to inherit salvation?
