THE EPISTLE OF THE
2H E B R E W S
Hebrews 1 ©
1 The apostle testifies that God indeed spoke in former times by the prophets to the fathers, but now unto us by His Son. 2 Whose Deity, majesty and office he briefly describes. 4 Proves afterwards out of divers places of the Old Testament that the glory of the Son far excels the glory of the angels. 8 That He has a divine and eternal throne, and that He is anointed above all His fellows. 10 Proves further that heaven and earth were made by Him, and shall have an end, but that He has neither beginning nor end. 13 And that He only sits at the right hand of His Father. 14 But that all angels are ministering spirits.
GOD,1 who at 2sundry 3times and 4in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Hath in 5these last days spoken unto 6us 7by his Son, whom he hath 8appointed heira of all things, byb whom also he made 9the worlds;
Whoc being 10the brightness of his glory, and 11the express image 12of his person, and 13upholding all things 14by the word of his power, 15when he had by himself purged our sins, 16sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath 17by inheritance obtained 18a more excellentd name than they.
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, 19Thoue art my Son, 20this day have I 21begotten thee? And again, 22If will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
And again, when he 23bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, Andg let all the angels of God worship him.
And 24of the angels he saith, Whoh25maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers 26a flame of fire.
But 27unto the Son he saith, Thyi28throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre 29of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even 30thy God, 31hath anointed thee with the 32oil of gladness above thy 33fellows.
34And, Thou,j Lord, 35in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
Theyk shall perish; but 36thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
And as 37a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be 38changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
But to which of the angels said he at any time, 39Sitl on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
Are they not all 40ministering spirits, 41sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
