Epistle to the Hebrews 1

1
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had* by himself purged* our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
4
Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
6
And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
7
And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8
But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
9
Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore* God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
10
And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
11
They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12
And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
13
But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool*
14
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
