The Nature of the Son
1Long ago God spoke # Jn 9:29; Heb 2:2-3 to the fathers by the prophets # 2Kg 17:13; 21:10; 24:2; Jr 7:25; 26:5; 29:19; 35:15; 44:4; Ezk 38:17; Dn 9:6; Hs 12:10; Zch 1:6; 8:9; Mt 2:23; Lk 1:70; 24:44; Ac 2:30; 3:21,24 at different times and in different ways. # Nm 12:6,8; Jl 2:28 2In these last days, # Ac 2:17; Gl 4:4; 2Tm 3:1; 2Pt 3:3; Jd 18 He has spoken to us by His Son. God has appointed Him heir of all things # Jr 3:19; 10:16; Zch 8:12 and made the universe # Lit ages # Ps 2:8; Jn 1:3; Col 1:16; Rv 4:11 through Him. 3The Son is the radiance # Or reflection of God’s glory and the exact expression # Or representation, or copy, or reproduction of His nature, # 2Co 4:4 sustaining all things by His powerful word. # Ps 33:6 After making purification for sins, # Other mss read for our sins by Himself He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. # Or He sat down on high at the right hand of the Majesty # Mt 22:44; Mk 16:19; Col 1:17 4So He became higher in rank than the angels, just as the name He inherited is superior to theirs. # Eph 1:21; Php 2:9
The Son Superior to Angels
5For to which of the angels did He ever say, You are My Son; today I have become Your Father, # Or have begotten You # Ps 2:7 or again, I will be His Father, and He will be My Son? # 2Sm 7:14; Ps 2:7; Ac 13:33 # 2Sm 7:14; 1Ch 17:13 6When He again # Or And again, when He brings His firstborn into the world, # Col 1:15,18; Rv 1:5 He says, And all God’s angels must worship Him. # Dt 32:43; Ps 97:7 # Dt 32:43 LXX; Ps 97:7 7And about the angels He says:
He makes His angels winds, # Or spirits
and His servants # Or ministers a fiery flame, # Ps 104:4 # Ps 104:4
8but to # Or about the Son:
Your throne, God,
is forever and ever,
and the scepter of Your kingdom
is a scepter of justice. # Ps 45:6-7
9You have loved righteousness
and hated lawlessness;
this is why God, Your God,
has anointed You
with the oil of joy # Is 61:1,3; Php 2:9
rather than Your companions. # Or associates # Ps 45:6-7
10And:
In the beginning, Lord,
You established the earth,
and the heavens are the works of Your hands; # Ps 102:25
11they will perish, but You remain.
They will all wear out like clothing; # Is 50:9; 51:6
12You will roll them up like a cloak, # Other mss omit like a cloak
and they will be changed like a robe.
But You are the same,
and Your years will never end. # Ps 102:26-27; Heb 13:8 # Ps 102:25-27
13Now to which of the angels has He ever said:
Sit at My right hand
until I make Your enemies Your footstool? # Or enemies a footstool for Your feet # Jos 10:24; Ps 110:1; Mt 22:44; Mk 12:36; Ac 2:34-35; Heb 10:13 # Ps 110:1
14Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve those who are going to inherit salvation? # Ps 103:20; Mt 18:10; Heb 5:9
