King James VersionHebrews1


1 God, who at sundry times and in divers man­ners spake in time past unto the fa­thers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spo­ken unto us by his Son, whom he hath ap­point­ed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who be­ing the bright­ness of his glo­ry, and the ex­press im­age of his per­son, and up­hold­ing all things by the word of his pow­er, when he had by him­self purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4 Be­ing made so much bet­ter than the an­gels, as he hath by in­her­i­tance ob­tained a more ex­cel­lent name than they. 5 For unto which of the an­gels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I be­got­ten thee? And again, I will be to him a Fa­ther, and he shall be to me a Son? 6 And again, when he bringeth in the first­be­got­ten into the world, he saith, And let all the an­gels of God wor­ship him. 7 And of the an­gels he saith, Who maketh his an­gels spir­its, and his min­is­ters a flame of fire. 8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ev­er: a scep­tre of righ­teous­ness is the scep­tre of thy king­dom. 9 Thou hast loved righ­teous­ness, and hat­ed in­iq­ui­ty; there­fore God, even thy God, hath anoint­ed thee with the oil of glad­ness above thy fel­lows. 10 And, Thou, Lord, in the be­gin­ning hast laid the foun­da­tion of the earth; and the heav­ens are the works of thine hands: 11 They shall per­ish; but thou re­mainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a gar­ment; 12 And as a ves­ture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. 13 But to which of the an­gels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, un­til I make thine en­e­mies thy foot­stool? 14 Are they not all min­is­ter­ing spir­its, sent forth to min­is­ter for them who shall be heirs of sal­va­tion?
