The Supremacy of God’s Son
1Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. 3He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
5For to which of the angels did God ever say,
“You are my Son,
“I will be to him a father,
6And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,
“Let all God’s angels worship him.”
7Of the angels he says,
“He makes his angels winds,
8But of the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
13And to which of the angels has he ever said,
“Sit at my right hand
14Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?
