God’s Final Word: His Son
The Son Superior to Angels
5 For to which of the angels did God ever say,
today I have become your Father”[a]?
and he will be my Son”[b]?
6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,
7 In speaking of the angels he says,
and his servants flames of fire.”[d]
8 But about the Son he says,
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.”[e]
10 He also says,
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 You will roll them up like a robe;
like a garment they will be changed.
But you remain the same,
and your years will never end.”[f]
13 To which of the angels did God ever say,
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet”[g]?
14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
