1 God, who 1at various times and ain various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the 2worlds; 3 bwho being the brightness of His glory and the express cimage of His person, and dupholding all things by the word of His power, ewhen He had 3by Himself 4purged 5our sins, fsat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become so much better than the angels, as gHe has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For to which of the angels did He ever say:
h“You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You”?
i“I will be to Him a Father,
And He shall be to Me a Son”?
6 But when He again brings jthe firstborn into the world, He says:
k“Let all the angels of God worship Him.”
l“Who makes His angels spirits
And His ministers a flame of fire.”
m“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A 6scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
Therefore God, Your God, nhas anointed You
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”
o“You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
11 pThey will perish, but You remain;
And qthey will all grow old like a garment;
And they will be changed.
But You are the rsame,
And Your years will not fail.”
s“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?
