1In many and various drakhim (ways) Hashem in amolike times (olden times) spoke to the Avot by the Nevi'im. 2At the Ketz HaYamim, Hashem spoke to us by HaBen, whom He appointed Bechor of the Bechorah, Yoresh Kol (Heir of All Things), through whom also Hashem BARAH ES HASHOMAYIM V'ES HA'ARETZ (see Prov 30:4); 3Who being the Shechinah zohar (brilliance) of Hashem and the exact impress and demut of Hashem's essential nature, being, and reality, and sustaining everything by his Dvar HaKo'ach, after he made tihur (purification) of chatta'im (sins), sat down at LIMIN ("the right hand" TEHILLIM 110:1) of the Majesty on High. 4He had become as much superior to the malachim as ha-Shem (the Name) Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach has inherited is more fest (excellent) than theirs. 5For to which of the malachim did Hashem ever say, BENI ATAH, ANI HAYOM YELIDTICHA, ("My Son you are; today I have become your Father." TEHILLIM 2:7)? And again, ANI EH'H'YEH LO L'AV V'HU YIHEYEH LI L'BEN ("I will be to Him a Father and He will be to Me as a Son," SHMUEL BAIS 7:14)? 6And again, when Hashem brings HaBechor into the Olam Hazeh, He says, "Let all Hashem's malachim worship him." [DEVARIM 32:43 TARGUM HA-SHIVIM] 7And of the malachim, Hashem says OSEH MALAKHAV RUCHOT MESHARTAV EISH L'HET ("He makes his angels winds and his servants [ministering angels] flaming fire," TEHILLIM 104:4). 8And Hashem says to HaBen, KIS'AHCHA ELOHIM OLAM VAED SHEVET MISHOR SHEVET MALKHUTECHA ("Your throne, O G-d, will endure for ever and ever, and the scepter of justice is the scepter of your kingdom" --TEHILLIM 45:7). 9AHAVTA TZEDEK VATISNA RE'SHA, AL KEN MESHAKHACHA ELOHIM, ELOHECHA SHEMEN SASSON MECHAVERECHA ("You loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; on account of this G-d, your G-d, anointed you with the oil of gladness more than your companions"--TEHILLIM 45:8). 10And "Atah Adonoi LEFANIM HA'ARETZ YASADETA UMA'ASEH YADECHA SHOMAYIM; HEMMAH YOVEDU V'ATAH TA'AMOD V'KHULAM KABEGED YIVLU KALVUSH TACHALIFEM V'YACHALOFU V'ATAH HU USHENOTECHA LO YITTAMMU" ("You L-rd in the beginning founded the earth and the heavens, the work of your hands; 11They will perish but you remain and all of them like the garment they will wear out, 12Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded, but you are the same and the years of you they never come to an end" TEHILLIM 102:26-28 [25-27]). 13And to which of the malachim has Hashem ever said, "Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies as a footstool for your feet" --TEHILLIM 110:1)? 14Are not all RUCHOT [TEHILLIM 104:4] sharet (ministering spirits, malachey hasharet) sent out with the shlichus (mission) to do avodas kodesh service as Hashem's klei kodesh (ministers) on behalf of the ones being about to inherit Yeshua'at Eloheinu?
