|<< Hebrews 1 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
From the first, in all parts and in all forms, God spoke with our fathers by The Prophets,
And in these last days he has spoken with us by his Son, whom he ordained The Heir of all things, and by him he made the universe.
For he is The Brilliance of his glory, The Image of his Being, and upholds all things by the power of his word; and he in his Essential Being has accomplished the purification of our sins, and he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
And This One is altogether greater than the Angels, according to how much more excellent than theirs is The Name which he possesses.
5For to which one of the Angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you”, and again, “I shall be to him The Father and he shall be to me the Son” ?
6Again, when he brings The Firstborn into the universe, he says, “All the Angels of God shall worship him.”
7But he spoke in this way about the Angels: “He makes his Angels the wind and his Ministers the burning fire.”
8But concerning The Son, he said, “Your throne, oh God, is to the eternity of eternities. A straight scepter is the scepter of your Kingdom.”
9“You have loved righteousness and you have hated evil; because of this, God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of a joy beyond your companions.”
10And again, “You have laid the foundation of The Earth from the beginning and the Heavens are the work of your hands.”
11“Those shall pass away and you remain, and they all shall wear out like a robe,”
12“And you shall fold them up like a cloak; they shall be changed, and you are as you are; your years shall not end.”
13But to which of the Angels did he ever say, “Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies as a footstool under your feet?”
14Behold, are they not all spirits of service, who are sent into service for the sake of those who are going to inherit life?
