Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 In many parts, and many ways, God of old having spoken to the fathers in 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 did speak to us in a Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He did make 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 who being the brightness of the glory, and the impress of His subsistence, bearing up also the all things by the saying of his might -- through himself having made a cleansing of our sins, sat down at the right hand of the greatness in the highest, 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 messengers said He ever, `My Son thou art -- I to-day have begotten thee?' and again, `I will be to him for a father, and he shall be to Me for 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 when again He may bring in the first-born to the world, He saith, `And let them bow before him -- all messengers of God;' 6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."
7 and unto the messengers, indeed, He saith, `Who is making His messengers 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 and unto the Son: `Thy throne, O God, [is] to the age of the age; a scepter of righteousness [is] the scepter of thy reign; 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 didst love righteousness, and didst hate lawlessness; because of this did He anoint thee -- God, thy God -- with oil of gladness above thy partners;' 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, at the beginning, Lord, the earth didst found, and a work 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 these shall perish, and Thou dost remain, and all, as a garment, shall become old, 11 They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment.
12 and as a mantle Thou shall roll them together, and they shall be changed, and Thou art the same, 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 And unto which of the messengers said He ever, `Sit at My right hand, till I may make thine 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 spirits of service -- for ministration being sent forth because of those about to inherit salvation? 14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
