1 [Although] God spoke long ago in many parts and in many ways to the fathers by the prophets, 1 In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
2 in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all [things], through whom also he made the world, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.
3 who is the radiance of his glory and the representation of his essence, sustaining all [things] by the word of power. [When he] had made purification for sins through him, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 3 The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

5 For to which of the angels did he ever say, "You are my son, today I have begotten you," and again, "I will be {his father}, and he will be {my son}"? 5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father " ?

7 And concerning the angels he says, "The one who makes his angels winds, and his servants a flame of fire," 7 In speaking of the angels he says, "He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire."
8 but concerning the Son, "Your throne, O God, [is] {forever and ever}, and the scepter of righteous [is the] scepter of your kingdom. 8 But about the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; because of this God, your God, has anointed you with the olive oil of joy more than your companions. 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."
10 And, "You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the works of your hands; 10 He also says, "In the beginning, O Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.
11 they will perish, but you continue, and they will all become old like a garment, 11 They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment.
12 and like a robe you will roll them up, and like a garment they will be changed; but you are the same, and your years will not run out." 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."
13 But to which of the angels has he ever said, "Sit down at my right hand, until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet." 13 To which of the angels did God ever say, "Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet" ?
