Hebrews 1

1
The Supremacy of God’s Son
1Long ago, at many times and #[Num. 12:6, 8; Joel 2:28]in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2but #1 Pet. 1:20; [ch. 9:26; Acts 2:17] in these last days #ch. 2:3 he has spoken to us by #See Matt. 14:33 his Son, whom he appointed #Ps. 2:8; Matt. 21:38; See Matt. 28:18 the heir of all things, #[ch. 3:3]; See John 1:3 through whom also he created #ch. 11:3the world. 3He is the radiance of the glory of God and #See 2 Cor. 4:4 the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. #See ch. 9:14 After making purification for sins, #See Mark 16:19 he sat down #[Luke 22:69]at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4having become as much superior to angels as the name #Eph. 1:21; Phil. 2:9he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
5For to which of the angels did God ever say,
# ch. 5:5; Acts 13:33; Cited from Ps. 2:7 “You are my Son,
today I have begotten you”?
Or again,
# Cited from 2 Sam. 7:14; [Ps. 89:26, 27] “I will be to him a father,
and he shall be to me a son”?
6And again, when he brings #See Rom. 8:29 the firstborn into the world, he says,
# Cited from Deut. 32:43 (Gk.); [Ps. 97:7] “Let all God’s angels worship him.”
7Of the angels he says,
# Cited from Ps. 104:4 “He makes his angels winds,
and his ministers a flame of fire.”
8But of the Son he says,
# Cited from Ps. 45:6, 7 “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
9You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, #Isa. 61:1 has anointed you
with #Isa. 61:3the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”
10And,
# Cited from Ps. 102:25-27 “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
11they will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment,
12like a robe you will roll them up,
like a garment they will be changed.#1:12 Some manuscripts omit like a garment
But you are #ch. 13:8the same,
and your years will have no end.”
13And to which of the angels has he ever said,
# Cited from Ps. 110:1 “Sit at my right hand
# ch. 10:13 until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?
14Are they not all ministering spirits #Gen. 19:16; 28:12; 32:1, 2; Judg. 6:11; 13:3; Ps. 34:7; 91:11; 103:20, 21; Dan. 3:28; 6:22; 10:11; Matt. 18:10 sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to #See Matt. 25:34inherit salvation?
