Hebrews 1

God’s Final Word in His Son

1God, having spoken to the fathers long ago in [the voices and writings of] the prophets in many separate revelations [each of which set forth a portion of the truth], and in many ways, has in these last days spoken [with finality] to us in [the person of One who is by His character and nature] His Son [namely Jesus], whom He appointed heir and lawful owner of all things, through whom also He created the universe [that is, the universe as a space-time-matter continuum]. The Son is the radiance and only expression of the glory of [our awesome] God [reflecting God’s [a]Shekinah glory, the Light-being, the brilliant light of the divine], and the exact representation and perfect imprint of His [Father’s] essence, and upholding and maintaining and propelling all things [the entire physical and spiritual universe] by His powerful word [carrying the universe along to its predetermined goal]. When He [Himself and no other] had [by offering Himself on the cross as a sacrifice for sin] accomplished purification from sins and established our freedom from guilt, He sat down [revealing His completed work] at the right hand of the Majesty on high [revealing His Divine authority], having become as much superior to angels, since He has inherited a more excellent and glorious [b]name than they [that is, Son—the name above all names].

For to which of the angels did the Father ever say,

You are My Son,
Today I have begotten (fathered) You [established You as a Son, with kingly dignity]”?

And again [did He ever say to the angels],

I shall be a Father to Him
And He shall be a Son to Me”?

[c]And when He again brings the firstborn [highest-ranking Son] into the world, He says,

And all the angels of God are to worship Him.”

And concerning the angels He says,

Who makes His angels winds,
And His ministering servants flames of fire [to do His bidding].”

But about the Son [the Father says to Him],

Your throne, [d]O God, is forever and ever,
And the [e]scepter of [absolute] righteousness is the scepter of [f]His kingdom.

You have loved righteousness [integrity, virtue, uprightness in purpose] and have hated lawlessness [injustice, sin].
Therefore God, Your God, Has anointed You
With the oil of gladness above Your companions.”

10 And,

[g]You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
And the heavens are the works of Your hands;
They will perish, but You remain [forever and ever];
And they will all wear out like a garment,
And like a robe You will roll them up;
Like a garment they will be changed.
But [h]You are the same [forever],
And Your years will never end.”

13 But to which of the angels has the Father ever said,

Sit at My right hand [together with me in royal dignity],
Until I make your enemies
A footstool for your feet [in triumphant conquest]”?

14 Are not all the angels ministering spirits sent out [by God] to serve (accompany, protect) those who will inherit salvation? [Of course they are!]

Notas al pie

  1. Hebrews 1:3 The word “Shekinah” does not appear in Scripture, but has been used by both Christians and Jews to describe the visible divine Presence of God, in such things as the burning bush, the cloud and the pillar of fire that led the Hebrews in the wilderness, and the Presence of God that rested between the cherubim over the mercy seat of the ark.
  2. Hebrews 1:4 In Greek “name” occurs last in this verse to emphasize that Jesus alone bears the name Son. No angel is superior to the Son.
  3. Hebrews 1:6 Most likely a reference to the second coming of Christ when He will be acknowledged as divine and worshiped as the Son of God. Another view suggests that this may be a reference to His incarnation as Jesus of Nazareth.
  4. Hebrews 1:8 The Son is recognized as deity by being addressed by the Father as “God.”
  5. Hebrews 1:8 I.e. symbol of authority.
  6. Hebrews 1:8 Late mss read Your.
  7. Hebrews 1:10 The deity of Jesus is acclaimed by the designation “You, Lord.”
  8. Hebrews 1:12 Since He is deity, the eternality of Jesus is recognized.

히브리서 1:1-14

하나님이 말씀하심

1옛날 하나님께서는 예언자들을 통하여 여러 가지 방법으로 수없이 우리 조상 들에게 말씀하셨습니다.

2그러나 이 마지막 때에는 아들을 통해 우리에게 말씀해 주셨습니다. 하나님은 그 아들을 모든 것의 상속자로 삼으시고 또 아들을 통해 우주를 창조하셨습니다.

3그 아들은 하나님의 영광의 광채시며 하나님의 본성을 그대로 나타내시는 분입니다. 그분은 능력 있는 말씀으로 만물을 보존하시며 죄를 깨끗게 하시고 하늘에 계시는 1:3 또는 ‘위엄의 우편에’위대하신 하나님 오른편에 앉으셨습니다.

4그래서 천사들보다 더 뛰어난 이름을 받으시고 그들과는 비교할 수 없을 만큼 위대한 분이 되셨습니다.

5하나님께서는 어느 천사에게도 1:5 시2:7“너는 내 아들이다. 오늘 내가 너를 낳았다” 라고 말씀하시거나 또 1:5 삼하7:14“나는 그의 아버지가 되고 그는 내 아들이 될 것이다” 라고 말씀하신 적이 없습니다.

6그러나 하나님께서 맏아들을 세상에 보내실 때 1:6 사해사본 70인역에서 신32:43을참조하라.“하나님의 모든 천사들은 그에게 경배하여라” 하셨습니다.

7또 천사들에 대해서는 1:7 시104:4“하나님이 그의 천사들을 바람으로 삼으시고 그의 종들을 불꽃으로 삼으신다” 라고 하셨습니다.

8그러나 아들에 대해서는 이렇게 말씀하셨습니다. 1:8 시45:6,7“하나님이시여, 1:8 또는 ‘주의보좌가영영하며주의 나라의 홀은 공평한 홀이니이다’주는 영원히 통치하시고 주의 나라를 정의의 지팡이로 다스리십니다.

9왕이 옳은 것을 사랑하고 악한 것을 미워하였으므로 왕의 하나님은 왕에게 기쁨의 기름을 부어 다른 왕들보다 높이셨습니다.”

101:10 시102:25-27“주여, 태초에 주께서 땅의 기초를 놓으셨고 하늘도 주의 손으로 만드셨습니다.

11하늘과 땅은 없어질 것이나 주는 영원히 살아 계실 것이며 그것들은 옷처럼 낡아질 것입니다.

12주께서 그 모든 것을 옷처럼 말아 버리시면 그것들이 의복처럼 변할 것이나 주는 변함없이 한결같으시고 주의 연대는 끝이 없을 것입니다.”

13하나님께서 어느 천사에게 1:13 시110:1“내가 네 원수들을 네 발 앞에 굴복시킬 때까지 너는 내 오른편에 앉아 있거라” 고 말씀하신 적이 있었습니까?

14천사들은 모두 섬기는 영들이며 앞으로 구원받을 사람들을 섬기라고 하나님이 보내신 일꾼에 불과합니다.
