4 having become as much superior to angels as the name
lhe has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
5 For to which of the angels did God ever say,
m“You are my Son,
today I have begotten you”?
n“I will be to him a father,
and he shall be to me a son”?
6 And again, when he brings othe firstborn into the world, he says,
p“Let all God’s angels worship him.”
7 Of the angels he says,
q“He makes his angels winds,
and his ministers a flame of fire.”
8 But of the Son he says,
r“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, shas anointed you
with tthe oil of gladness beyond your companions.”
u“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
11 they will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment,
12 like a robe you will roll them up,
like a garment they will be changed.1
But you are vthe same,
and your years will have no end.”
13 And to which of the angels has he ever said,
w“Sit at my right hand
xuntil I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits ysent out to serve for the sake of those who are to zinherit salvation?
