Text: Hebrews 1:1-9

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times

and in various ways, 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 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

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, “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 God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all

God’s angels worship him.”

7 In speaking of the angels he says, “He makes his angels winds, his servants

flames of fire.”

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 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.”
