1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners
spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son,
whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom
also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the
express image of his person, and upholding all things
bythe word of his power, when he had by himself
purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the
Majesty on high;
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he
hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time,
Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And
again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to
me a Son?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten
into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of
God worship him.
7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels
spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is
for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the
sceptre of thy kingdom.
9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity;
therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with
the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the
foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the
works of thine hands:
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they
all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they
shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy
years shall not fail.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time,
Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth
to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
