1 WHEN in times past God spoke to our forefathers, he spoke in many and varied ways through the prophets. 2But in this the final age he has spoken to us in his Son, whom he has appointed heir of all things; and through him he created the universe. 3He is the radiance of God's glory, the stamp of God's very being, and he sustains the universe by his word of power. When he had brought about purification from sins, he took his seat at the right hand of God's Majesty on high, 4raised as far above the angels as the title he has inherited is superior to theirs.

5To which of the angels did God ever say, ‘You are my son; today I have become your father,’ or again, ‘I shall be his father, and he will be my son’? 6Again, when he presents a 1:6 Again … presents: or And when he again presents. the firstborn to the world, he says, ‘Let all God's angels pay him homage.’ 7Of the angels he says:

He makes his angels winds, and his ministers flames of fire;

8but of the Son:

Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever, and the sceptre of his kingdom is the sceptre of justice. 9You have loved right and hated wrong; therefore, O God, your God b 1:9 therefore … your God: or therefore God who is your God. has set you above your fellows by anointing you with oil, the token of joy.

10And again:

By you, Lord, were earth's foundations laid of old, and the heavens are the work of your hands. 11They will perish, but you remain; like clothes they will all wear out. 12You will fold them up like a cloak, they will be changed like any garment. But you are the same, and your years will have no end.

13To which of the angels has he ever said, ‘Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool’? 14Are they not all ministering spirits sent out in God's service, for the sake of those destined to receive salvation?

Notes:

a 1:6 Again … presents: or And when he again presents.

b 1:9 therefore … your God: or therefore God who is your God.
