Book 58 Hebrews 001:001 God, having in the past spoken to the fathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 001:002 has at the end of these days spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds. 001:003 His Son is the radiance of his glory, the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself made purification for our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 001:004 having become so much better than the angels, as he has inherited a more excellent name than they have. 001:005 For to which of the angels did he say at any time, "You are my Son. Today have I become your father?"{Psalm 2:7} and again, "I will be to him a Father, and he will be to me a Son?"{2 Samuel 7:14; 1 Chronicles 17:13} 001:006 Again, when he brings in the firstborn into the world he says, "Let all the angels of God worship him." 001:007 Of the angels he says, "Who makes his angels winds, and his servants a flame of fire."{Psalm 104:4} 001:008 But of the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your Kingdom. 001:009 You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows."{Psalm 45:6 7} 001:010 And, "You, Lord, in the beginning, laid the foundation of the earth. The heavens are the works of your hands. 001:011 They will perish, but you continue. They all will grow old like a garment does. 001:012 As a mantle, you will roll them up, and they will be changed; but you are the same. Your years will not fail."{Psalm 102:25 27} 001:013 But which of the angels has he told at any time, "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies the footstool of your feet?"{Psalm 110:1} 001:014 Aren't they all serving spirits, sent out to do service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? 002:001 Therefore we ought to pay greater attention to the things that were heard, lest perhaps we drift away. 002:002 For if the word spoken through angels proved steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense; 002:003 how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation which at the first having been spoken through the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard; 002:004 God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders, by various works of power, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to his own will? 002:005 For he didn't subject the world to come, of which we speak, to angels. 002:006 But one has somewhere testified, saying, "What is man, that you think of him? Or the son of man, that you care for him? 002:007 You made him a little lower than the angels. You crowned him with glory and honor.{TR adds "and set him over the works of your hands"} 002:008 You have put all things in subjection under his feet."{Psalm 8:4 6} For in that he subjected all things to him, he left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we don't see all things subjected to him, yet. 002:009 But we see him who has been made a little lower than the angels, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God he should taste of death for everyone. 002:010 For it became him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many children to glory, to make the author of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 002:011 For both he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one, for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brothers{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings...
