GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors at many different times and in many different ways through 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 through his Son. God made his Son responsible for everything. His Son is the one through whom God made the universe. 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 His Son is the reflection of God's glory and the exact likeness of God's being. He holds everything together through his powerful words. After he had cleansed people from their sins, he received the highest position, the one next to the Father in heaven. 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 The Son has become greater than the angels since he has been given a name that is superior to theirs. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
5 God never said to any of his angels, "You are my Son. Today I have become your Father." And God never said to any of his angels, "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 " ? Or again, "I will be his Father, and he will be my Son" ?
6 When God was about to send his firstborn Son into the world, he said, "All of God's angels must worship him." 6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."
