The Supremacy of the Son
1On many past occasions and in many different ways, God spoke to our fathers through the prophets. 2But in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He made the universe.
3The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His nature, upholding all things by His powerful word. After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. 4So He became as far superior to the angels as the name He has inherited is excellent beyond theirs. 5For to which of the angels did God ever say:
“You are my Son;
today I have become Your Father”a?
“I will be His Father,
and He will be My Son”b?
6And again, when God brings His firstborn into the world, He says:
“Let all God’s angels worship Him.”c
7Now about the angels He says:
“He makes His angels winds,
His servants flames of fire.”d
8But about the Son He says:
“Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever,
and righteousness will be the scepter of Your kingdom.
9You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, Your God, has placed You above Your companions
by anointing You with the oil of joy.”e
“In the beginning, Lord, You laid the foundations of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of Your hands.
11They will perish, but You remain;
They will all wear out like a garment.
12You will roll them up like a robe;
like a garmentf they will be changed;
but You remain the same,
and Your years will never end.”g
13And to which of the angels did God ever say:
“Sit at My right hand
until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet”h?a 5 Psalm 2:7
b 5 2 Samuel 7:14; 1 Chronicles 17:13
c 6 Deuteronomy 32:43
d 7 Psalm 104:4
e 8-9 Psalm 45:6,7
f 12 BYZ and TR do not include like a garment
