Berean Literal Bible
The Supremacy of the Son
1God, having spoken long ago to our fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He made the ages, 3who, being the radiance of His glory and the exact expression of His substance, and upholding all things by the power of His word, through having made the purification of sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4having become by so much superior to the angels, as much as He has inherited a name more excellent beyond theirs.
5For to which of the angels did He ever say:
“You are my Son;
today I have begotten You”a?
“I will be to Him for a Father,
and He will be to Me for a Son”b?
6And again, when He brings the Firstborn into the world, He says:
“And let all God’s angels worship Him.”c
7And indeed as to the angels He says:
“The One making His angels winds,
and His ministers a flame of fire.”d
8But unto the Son:
“Your throne, O God, is to the age of the age,
and the scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
9You have loved righteousness and have hated wickedness;
because of this, God, Your God,
has anointed You with the oil of exultation
above Your companions.”e
“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are works of Your hands.
11They will perish but You remain;
and all will grow old like a garment;
12and like a robe You will roll them up,
and like a garmentf they will be changed;
but You are the same,
and Your years will never end.”g
13Now to which of the angels did He ever say:
“Sit at My right hand,
until I may place Your enemies as a footstool for Your feet”h?
14Are they not all ministering spirits, being sent forth for service for the sake of those being about to inherit salvation?
