1 God having spoken in many parts and in many ways formerly to the fathers in the prophets,

2 at the end of these days has spoken to us in [the person of the] Son, whom he has established heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

3 who being [the] effulgence of his glory and [the] expression of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, having made [by himself] the purification of sins, set himself down on the right hand of the greatness on high,

4 taking a place by so much better than the angels, as he inherits a name more excellent than they.

5 For to which of the angels said he ever, *Thou* art my Son: this day have *I* begotten thee? and again, *I* will be to him for father, and *he* shall be to me for son?

6 and again, when he brings in the firstborn into the habitable world, he says, And let all God's angels worship him.

7 And as to the angels he says, Who makes his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire;

8 but as to the Son, Thy throne, O God, [is] to the age of the age, and a sceptre of uprightness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom.

9 Thou hast loved righteousness and hast hated lawlessness; therefore God, thy God, has anointed thee with oil of gladness above thy companions.

10 And, *Thou* in the beginning, Lord, hast founded the earth, and works of thy hands are the heavens.

11 They shall perish, but *thou* continuest still; and they all shall grow old as a garment,

12 and as a covering shalt thou roll them up, and they shall be changed; but *thou* art the Same, and thy years shall not fail.

13 But as to which of the angels said he ever, Sit at my right hand until I put thine enemies [as] footstool of thy feet?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out for service on account of those who shall inherit salvation?
