Long ago God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by a Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom he also created the worlds. He is the reflection of Godâ€™s glory and the exact imprint of Godâ€™s very being, and he sustains all things by his powerful word. When he had made purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
Â Â For to which of the angels did God ever say,
â€œYou are my Son;
today I have begotten youâ€?
â€œI will be his Father,
and he will be my Sonâ€?
And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,
â€œLet all Godâ€™s angels worship him.â€
