Book 58 Hebrews 001:001 God, who in ancient days spoke to our forefathers in many distinct messages and by various methods through the Prophets, 001:002 has at the end of these days spoken to us through a Son, who is the pre destined Lord of the universe, and through whom He made the Ages. 001:003 He brightly reflects God's glory and is the exact representation of His being, and upholds the universe by His all powerful word. After securing man's purification from sin He took His seat at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 001:004 having become as far superior to the angels as the Name He possesses by inheritance is more excellent than theirs. 001:005 For to which of the angels did God ever say, "My Son art Thou: I have this day become Thy Father;" and again, "I will be a Father to Him, and He shall be My Son"? 001:006 But speaking of the time when He once more brings His Firstborn into the world, He says, "And let all God's angels worship Him." 001:007 Moreover of the angels He says, "He changes His angels into winds, and His ministering servants into a flame of fire." 001:008 But of His Son, He says, "Thy throne, O God, is for ever and for ever, and the sceptre of Thy Kingdom is a sceptre of absolute justice. 001:009 Thou hast loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Thy God, has anointed Thee with the oil of gladness beyond Thy companions." 001:010 It is also of His Son that God says, "Thou, O Lord, in the beginning didst lay the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Thy hands. 001:011 The heavens will perish, but Thou remainest; and they will all grow old like a garment, 001:012 and, as though they were a mantle Thou wilt roll them up; yes, like a garment, and they will undergo change. But Thou art the same, and Thy years will never come to an end." 001:013 To which of the angels has He ever said, "Sit at My right hand till I make Thy foes a footstool for Thy feet"? 001:014 Are not all angels spirits that serve Him whom He sends out to render service for the benefit of those who, before long, will inherit salvation? 002:001 For this reason we ought to pay the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, for fear we should drift away from them. 002:002 For if the message delivered through angels proved to be true, and every transgression and act of disobedience met with just retribution, 002:003 how shall we escape if we are indifferent to a salvation as great as that now offered to us? This, after having first of all been announced by the Lord Himself, had its truth made sure to us by those who heard Him, 002:004 while God corroborated their testimony by signs and marvels and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed in accordance with His own will. 002:005 It is not to angels that God has assigned the sovereignty of that coming world, of which we speak. 002:006 But, as we know, a writer has solemnly said, "How poor a creature is man, and yet Thou dost remember him, and a son of man, and yet Thou dost come to him! 002:007 Thou hast made him only a little inferior to the angels; with glory and honour Thou hast crowned him, and hast set him to govern the works of Thy hands. 002:008 Thou hast put everything in subjection under his feet." For this subjecting of the universe to man implies the leaving nothing not subject to him. But we do not as yet see the universe subject to him. 002:009 But Jesus who was made a little inferior to the angels in order that through God's grace He might taste death for every human being we already see wearing a crown of glory and honour because of His having suffered death...
