The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Going through a long line of prophets, God has been addressing our ancestors in different ways for centuries. 1 In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
2 Recently he spoke to us directly through his Son. By his Son, God created the world in the beginning, and it will all belong to the Son at the end. 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 This Son perfectly mirrors God, and is stamped with God's nature. He holds everything together by what he says - powerful words! The Son Is Higher than Angels 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 far higher than any angel in rank and rule. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
