Song of Solomon
< previous HEBREWS - CHAPTER ONE next >
1 God, having in the past spoken to the fathers
through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 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. 3 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 purified us of our sins, sat down on the
right hand of the Majesty on high; 4 having become so much better than the
angels, as he has inherited a more excellent name than they have. 5 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
“I will be to him a Father,
and he will be to me a Son?” 2 Samuel 7:14; 1
6 When he again brings in the firstborn into the
world he says, “Let all the angels of God worship him.” Deuteronomy 32:43
Septuagint 7 Of the angels he says,
“Who makes his angels winds,
and his servants a flame of fire.” Psalm 104:4
8 But of the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.
The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your
9 You have loved righteousness, and hated
therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil
of gladness above your fellows.” Psalm 45:6-7
“You, Lord, in the beginning, laid the foundation of
The heavens are the works of your hands.
11 They will perish, but you continue.
They all will grow old like a garment does.
12 You will roll them up like a mantle,
and they will be changed;
but you are the same.
Your years will not fail.” Psalm 102:25-27
13 But which of the angels has he told at any
“Sit at my right hand,
until I make your enemies the footstool of your feet?”
14 Aren’t they all serving spirits, sent out to
do service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?
