希伯来书 1

划时代的启示

1在古代,上帝曾借着先知以各种方式多次向我们的祖先说话; 在这世界的末期,祂又借着自己的儿子亲自向我们说话。上帝早已立祂承受万物,并借着祂创造了宇宙万物。 祂正是上帝荣耀的光辉,是上帝本体的真像。祂用自己充满能力的话语维系万物。祂洗净了世人的罪之后,便坐在天上至高上帝的右边。 祂既承受了比天使更高的名分,就远超越天使。

上帝从未对任何一个天使说:

“你是我的儿子,我今日成为你父亲。”

或说:

“我要做你的父亲,你要做我的儿子。”

上帝差遣祂的长子到世上来时,说:

“上帝的天使都要敬拜祂。”

上帝提到天使的时候,也只是说:

“上帝使祂的天使成为风,使祂的仆役成为火焰。”

但论到祂的儿子,祂却说:

“上帝啊,你的宝座永远长存,
你以公义的杖执掌王权。
你喜爱公义,憎恶邪恶。
所以上帝,你的上帝,
用喜乐之油膏你,使你超过同伴。”

10 此外又说:

“主啊,太初你奠立大地的根基,
亲手创造诸天。
11 天地都要消亡,但你永远长存。
天地都会像衣服渐渐破旧,
12 你要像卷外衣一样把天地卷起来。
天地将如衣服一样被更换,
但你永远不变,
你的年日永无穷尽。”

13 上帝从未对任何一个天使说:

“你坐在我的右边,
等我使你的仇敌成为你的脚凳。”

14 天使岂不都是服役的灵吗?他们奉差遣,岂不是去为那些将要承受救恩的人服务吗?

Amplified Bible

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;
11 
They will perish, but You remain [forever and ever];
And they will all wear out like a garment,
12 
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.
