Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 God, who in ancient days spoke to our forefathers in many distinct messages and by various methods through the Prophets, 1 In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
2 has at the end of these days spoken to us through a Son, who is the pre-destined Lord of the universe, and through whom He made the Ages. 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 He brightly reflects God's glory and is the exact representation of His being, and upholds the universe by His all-powerful word. After securing man's purification from sin He took His seat 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.
4 having become as far superior to the angels as the Name He possesses by inheritance is more excellent than theirs. 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 did God ever say, "My Son art Thou: I have this day become Thy Father;" and again, "I will be a Father to Him, and He shall be My 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 But speaking of the time when He once more brings His Firstborn into the world, He says, "And let all God's angels worship Him." 6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."
7 Moreover of the angels He says, "He changes His angels into winds, and His ministering servants into a flame of fire." 7 In speaking of the angels he says, "He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire."
8 But of His Son, He says, "Thy throne, O God, is for ever and for ever, and the sceptre of Thy Kingdom is a sceptre of absolute justice. 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 righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore God, Thy God, has anointed Thee with the oil of gladness beyond Thy 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 It is also of His Son that God says, "Thou, O Lord, in the beginning didst lay the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Thy 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 The heavens will perish, but Thou remainest; and they will all grow old like a garment, 11 They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment.
12 and, as though they were a mantle Thou wilt roll them up; yes, like a garment, and they will undergo change. But Thou art the same, and Thy years will never come to an end." 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 To which of the angels has He ever said, "Sit at My right hand till I make Thy foes a footstool for Thy 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" ?
14 Are not all angels spirits that serve Him--whom He sends out to render service for the benefit of those who, before long, will inherit salvation? 14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
