[ Hebrews 1]

     1:1 God spoke long-ago in many parts and in many manners, in the prophets to the fathers, andspoke to us upon the last of these days in his Son, 1:2 whom he appointed* heir of all things, through whom also he made* the ages. 1:3It is he who, being the brightness of his glory and theexact representation of his essence, and is carrying all things by the declaration of his power. Having made* a cleansing of our sins through himself, he sat down by the right hand of the Majesty in the high places; 1:4when he became so-much better than the messengers, inasmuch as he has inherited a more excellent name than they.

     1:5 For* to what one of the messengers has he previously said, 'You are my Son; I have fathered you today.'? And again, 'I will be a Father to him and he will be *for a Son to me.'? 1:6 And again, whenever he brings* in the firstborn into the inhabited-earth, he says, 'And let* all the messengers of God worship him.' 1:7 And he indeed says toward the messengers, 'Who makes* his messengers, spirits, and his ministers*, a flame of fire.' {Psa 2:7, 89:26, 27, Psa 104:4}

     1:8 But he says toward the Son, 'Your throne, O God, is forevermore; the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom. 1:9 You loved* righteousness and hated lawlessness. Because of this, God, your God, anointed you with the oil of gladness more than your companions.' 1:10 And, 'You, Lord, in the beginnings, founded the earth and the heavens are the works of your hands: 1:11they themselves will be perishing, but you are remaining and they will all become-obsolete like a garment; 1:12 and you will coil them up like an outer dressing and they will be changed, but you are the same and your years will not be failing.' 1:13 But toward which of the messengers has he previously said, 'Sit at my right hand, until I should place your enemies as the footstool of your feet? {Psa 45:6-7, 102:25-27, 110:1}

     1:14 Are they not all ministering* spirits, being sent forth into service because of those who are about to inherit salvation?
