希伯來書 1

劃時代的啟示

1在古代,上帝曾藉著先知以各種方式多次向我們的祖先說話; 在這世界的末期,祂又藉著自己的兒子親自向我們說話。上帝早已立祂承受萬物,並藉著祂創造了宇宙萬物。 祂正是上帝榮耀的光輝,是上帝本體的真像。祂用自己充滿能力的話語維繫萬物。祂洗淨了世人的罪之後,便坐在天上至高上帝的右邊。 祂既承受了比天使更高的名分,就遠超越天使。

上帝從未對任何一個天使說:

「你是我的兒子,我今日成為你父親。」

或說:

「我要作你的父親,你要作我的兒子。」

上帝差遣祂的長子到世上來時,說:

「上帝的天使都要敬拜祂。」

上帝提到天使的時候,也只是說:

「上帝使祂的天使成為風,使祂的僕役成為火焰。」

但論到祂的兒子,祂卻說:

「上帝啊,你的寶座永遠長存,
你以公義的杖執掌王權。
你喜愛公義,憎惡邪惡。
所以上帝,你的上帝,
用喜樂之油膏你,使你超過同伴。」

10 此外又說:

「主啊,太初你奠立大地的根基,
親手創造諸天。
11 天地都要消亡,但你永遠長存。
天地都會像衣服漸漸破舊,
12 你要像捲外衣一樣把天地捲起來。
天地將如衣服一樣被更換,
但你永遠不變,
你的年日永無窮盡。」

13 上帝從未對任何一個天使說:

「你坐在我的右邊,
等我使你的仇敵成為你的腳凳。」

14 天使豈不都是服役的靈嗎?他們奉差遣,豈不是去為那些將要承受救恩的人服務嗎?

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.
