Abaebbulaniya 1

Omwana mukulu okusinga bamalayika

1Edda, Katonda yayogeranga ne bajjajjaffe mu ngeri nnyingi ez’enjawulo ng’ayita mu bannabbi; naye mu nnaku zino ez’oluvannyuma yayogera naffe ng’ayita mu Mwana, gwe yalonda okuba omusika wa byonna, era mu oyo mwe yatondera ensi n’ebintu byonna ebirimu. Amasamasa n’ekitiibwa kya Katonda, era ky’ekifaananyi kye ddala bw’ali, era abeezaawo buli kintu olw’ekigambo kye eky’amaanyi. Bwe yamala okukola ekikolwa eky’okututukuza okuva mu bibi, n’atuula ku mukono ogwa ddyo ogwa Katonda mu Bwakabaka obw’omu ggulu. Bw’atyo n’asinga bamalayika, nga kyeragira ku linnya lye okuba ery’ekitiibwa okusinga amannya gaabwe.

Kubanga ani ku bamalayika gwe yali ayogeddeko nti,

“Ggwe oli Mwana wange,
    Leero nkuzadde?”
Era nate nti, “Nze nnaabeeranga Kitaawe gy’ali
    naye anaabeeranga Mwana wange gye ndi?”

Era nate bw’aleeta Omwana we omubereberye mu nsi, agamba nti,

“Bamalayika ba Katonda bonna bamusinzenga.”

Era ayogera ku bamalayika nti,

“Afuula bamalayika be ng’empewo,
    n’afuula n’abaweereza be ng’ennimi z’omuliro.”

Naye ku Mwana ayogera nti,

“Entebe yo ey’Obwakabaka, Ayi Katonda, ya lubeerera emirembe n’emirembe;
    obutuukirivu, gwe muggo ogw’obwakabaka bwo.
Wayagala obutuukirivu n’okyawa obujeemu.
    Katonda, era Katonda wo kyeyava akufukako
    amafuta ag’omuzeeyituuni agaleeta essanyu okusinga banno.”

10 Ayongera n’agamba nti,

“Mukama ku lubereberye wassaawo omusingi gw’ensi,
    era n’eggulu mirimu gwa mukono gwo.
11 Ebyo biriggwaawo, naye ggwe olibeerera emirembe gyonna,
    era byonna birikaddiwa ng’ekyambalo bwe kikaddiwa.
12 Era olibizingako ng’ekooti bwe zingibwako,
    era birikyusibwa ng’ekyambalo bwe kikyusibwa.
Naye ggwe oba bumu,
    so n’emyaka gyo tegirikoma.”

13 Ani ku bamalayika gwe yali agambye nti,

“Tuula wano ku mukono gwange ogwa ddyo,
    okutuusa lwe ndifufuggaza abalabe bo,
    ne bafuuka entebe y’ebigere byo”?

14 Bamalayika bonna, myoyo egitumibwa okuweereza abo abagenda okusikira obulokozi.

The Message

Hebrews 1

11-3 Going through a long line of prophets, God has been addressing our ancestors in different ways for centuries. Recently he spoke to us directly through his Son. By his Son, God created the world in the beginning, and it will all belong to the Son at the end. This Son perfectly mirrors God, and is stamped with God’s nature. He holds everything together by what he says—powerful words!

The Son Is Higher than Angels

3-6 After he finished the sacrifice for sins, the Son took his honored place high in the heavens right alongside God, far higher than any angel in rank and rule. Did God ever say to an angel, “You’re my Son; today I celebrate you” or “I’m his Father, he’s my Son”? When he presents his honored Son to the world, he says, “All angels must worship him.”

Regarding angels he says,

The messengers are winds,
    the servants are tongues of fire.

8-9 But he says to the Son,

You’re God, and on the throne for good;
    your rule makes everything right.
You love it when things are right;
    you hate it when things are wrong.
That is why God, your God,
    poured fragrant oil on your head,
Marking you out as king,
    far above your dear companions.

10-12 And again to the Son,

You, Master, started it all, laid earth’s foundations,
    then crafted the stars in the sky.
Earth and sky will wear out, but not you;
    they become threadbare like an old coat;
You’ll fold them up like a worn-out cloak,
    and lay them away on the shelf.
But you’ll stay the same, year after year;
    you’ll never fade, you’ll never wear out.

13 And did he ever say anything like this to an angel?

Sit alongside me here on my throne
Until I make your enemies a stool for your feet.

14 Isn’t it obvious that all angels are sent to help out with those lined up to receive salvation?
