Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 God, who, at sundry times and in divers manners, spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, last of all, 1 In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
2 In these days, hath spoken to us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by 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 being the brightness of his glory and the figure of his substance and upholding all things by the word of his power, making purgation of sins, sitteth on 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.
4 Being made so much better than the angels as he hath inherited a more excellent name than they. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
5 For to which of the angels hath he said at any time: Thou art my Son, to-day have I begotten thee? And again: I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father " ? Or again, "I will be his Father, and he will be my Son" ?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the first begotten into the world, he saith: And let all the angels of God adore him. 6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."
7 And to the angels indeed he saith: He that maketh his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire. 7 In speaking of the angels he says, "He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire."
8 But to the Son: Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of justice is the sceptre of thy 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 Thou hast loved justice and hated iniquity: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 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: Thou in the beginning, O Lord, didst found the earth: and the works of thy hands are the heavens. 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 shall perish: but thou shalt continue: and they shall all grow old as a garment. 11 They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment.
12 And as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shalt be changed. But thou art the selfsame: and thy years shall not fail. 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 said he at any time: Sit on my right hand, until I make thy enemies thy footstool? 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" ?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent to minister for them who shall receive the inheritance of salvation? 14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
