The Scriptures (ISR 1998)
1Elohim, having of old spoken in many portions and many ways to the fathers by the prophets,
3who being the brightness of the esteem and the exact representation of His substance, and sustaining all by the word of His power, having made a cleansing of our sins through Himself, sat down at the right hand of the Greatness on high,
4having become so much better than the messengers, as He has inherited a more excellent Name than them.
6And when He again brings the first-born into the world, He says, “Let all the messengers of Elohim do reverence to Him.”
7And of the messengers indeed He says, “... who is making His messengers spirits and His servants a flame of fire.”
8But to the Son He says, “Your throne, O Elohim, is forever and ever, a sceptre of straightness is the sceptre of Your reign.
9“You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness.Because of this, Elohim, Your Elohim,has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”
10And, “You, Master, did found the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of Your hands.
11“They shall perish, but You remain. And they shall all grow old like a garment,
12and like a mantle You shall fold them up, and they shall be changed. But You are the same, and Your years shall not fail.”
13And to which of the messengers did He ever say, “Sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet”?
14Are they not all serving spirits sent out to attend those who are about to inherit deliverance?
