The Son Exalted Above Angels

For to which of the angels did He ever say:

h“You are My Son,

Today I have begotten You”?

And again:

i“I will be to Him a Father,

And He shall be to Me a Son”?

But when He again brings jthe firstborn into the world, He says:

k“Let all the angels of God worship Him.”

And of the angels He says:

l“Who makes His angels spirits

And His ministers a flame of fire.”

But to the Son He says:

mYour throne, O God, is forever and ever;

A 6scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;

Therefore God, Your God, nhas anointed You

With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”

10 And:

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;

12 Like a cloak You will fold them up,

And they will be changed.

But You are the rsame,

And Your years will not fail.”

13 But to which of the angels has He ever said:

s“Sit at My right hand,

Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?

14 tAre they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will uinherit salvation?


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
