1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, [Note 1] whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee(1)?
And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son(2)?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.(3)
7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire(4).
8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever(5): a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

1 multifariam et multis modis olim Deus loquens patribus in prophetis
2 novissime diebus istis locutus est nobis in Filio quem constituit heredem universorum per quem fecit et saecula
3 qui cum sit splendor gloriae et figura substantiae eius portansque omnia verbo virtutis suae purgationem peccatorum faciens sedit ad dexteram Maiestatis in excelsis
4 tanto melior angelis effectus quanto differentius prae illis nomen hereditavit
5 cui enim dixit aliquando angelorum Filius meus es tu ego hodie genui te et rursum ego ero illi in Patrem et ipse erit mihi in Filium
6 et cum iterum introducit primogenitum in orbem terrae dicit et adorent eum omnes angeli Dei
7 et ad angelos quidem dicit qui facit angelos suos spiritus et ministros suos flammam ignis
8 ad Filium autem thronus tuus Deus in saeculum saeculi et virga aequitatis virga regni tui
9 dilexisti iustitiam et odisti iniquitatem propterea unxit te Deus Deus tuus oleo exultationis prae participibus tuis
10 et tu in principio Domine terram fundasti et opera manuum tuarum sunt caeli
11 ipsi peribunt tu autem permanebis et omnes ut vestimentum veterescent
12 et velut amictum involves eos et mutabuntur tu autem idem es et anni tui non deficient
13 ad quem autem angelorum dixit aliquando sede a dextris meis quoadusque ponam inimicos tuos scabillum pedum tuorum
14 nonne omnes sunt administratorii spiritus in ministerium missi propter eos qui hereditatem capient salutis
