God, after He aspoke long ago to the fathers in bthe prophets in many portions and cin many ways,
ain these last days bhas spoken to us in cHis Son, whom He appointed dheir of all things, ethrough whom also He made the fworld.
And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact arepresentation of His nature, and bupholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made cpurification of sins, He dsat down at the right hand of the eMajesty on high,
having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent aname than they.
For to which of the angels did He ever say, "aYOU ARE MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU"?
And when He again abrings the firstborn into bthe world, He says, "cAND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM."
And of the angels He says, "aWHO MAKES HIS ANGELS WINDS, AND HIS MINISTERS A FLAME OF FIRE."
But of the Son He says, "aYOUR THRONE, O GOD, IS FOREVER AND EVER, AND THE RIGHTEOUS SCEPTER IS THE SCEPTER OF HIS KINGDOM.
"aYOU HAVE LOVED RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HATED LAWLESSNESS; bTHEREFORE GOD, YOUR GOD, HAS cANOINTED YOU WITH THE OIL OF GLADNESS ABOVE YOUR COMPANIONS."
And, "aYOU, Lord, IN THE BEGINNING LAID THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH, AND THE HEAVENS ARE THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS;
aTHEY WILL PERISH, BUT YOU REMAIN; bAND THEY ALL WILL BECOME OLD LIKE A GARMENT,
aAND LIKE A MANTLE YOU WILL ROLL THEM UP; LIKE A GARMENT THEY WILL ALSO BE CHANGED. BUT YOU ARE bTHE SAME, AND YOUR YEARS WILL NOT COME TO AN END."
But to which of the angels has He ever said, "aSIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, bUNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET"?
Are they not all aministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will binherit csalvation?
