1 WHEN IN FORMER TIMES God spoke to our forefathers, he spoke in fragmentary and varied fashion through the prophets. God has Spoken by His Son Hb.1.1-4 67ce
2 But in this the final age he has spoken to us in the Son whom he has made heir to the whole universe, and through whom he created all orders of existence:  
3 the Son who is the effulgence of God's splendour and the stamp of God's very being, and sustains Or: bears along. the universe by his word of power. When he had brought about the purgation of sins, he took his seat at the right hand of Majesty on high,

4 raised as far above the angels, as the title he has inherited is superior to theirs.
5 For God never said to any angel, 'Thou art my Son; today I have begotten thee', or again, 'I will be father to him, and he shall be my son.' The Son Superior to Angels Hb.1.5-14 - Ps.2.7, 2Sm.7.14, 1Chr.17.13
6 Again, when he presents the first-born to the world, he says, 'Let all the angels of God pay him homage.'

- Let all God's angels worship him. Hb.1.6 - Dt.32.43, Ps.97.7
7 Of the angels he says,
    'He who makes his angels winds,
    and his ministers a fiery flame';

- Who makes his angels winds, and his servants flames of fire. Hb.1.7 - Ps.104.4
8 but of the Son,
    'Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever,
    and the sceptre Or: God is thy throne for ever and ever, and thy sceptre ... of justice is the sceptre of his kingdom.

- Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever Hb.1.8-9 - Ps.45.6-7
9 Thou hast loved right and hated wrong;
therefore, O God, thy God Or: therefore God who is thy God ... has set thee above thy fellows,
by anointing with the oil of exultation.'

10 And again,
    'By thee. Lord, were earth's foundations laid of old,
    and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

- Thou, Lord, didst found the earth in the beginning Hb.1.10-12 - Ps.102.25-27
11 They shall pass away, but thou endurest;
like clothes they shall all grow old;

12 thou shalt fold them up like a cloak;
yes, they shall be changed like any garment.
But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.'

13 To which of the angels has he ever said, 'Sit at my right hand until I make thy enemies thy footstool'?

- Sit at my right hand, till I make thy enemies a stool for thy feet Hb.1.13 - Ps.110.1
14 What are they all but ministrant spirits, sent out to serve, for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?
