ዕብራውያን 1:1-14

ልጁ ከመላእክት በላይ ነው

1እግዚአብሔር ከጥንት ጀምሮ በተለያየ ጊዜና በልዩ ልዩ መንገድ በነቢያት በኩል ለአባቶቻችን ተናግሮ፣ 2በዚህ መጨረሻ ዘመን ግን ሁሉን ወራሽ ባደረገውና ዓለማትን በፈጠረበት በልጁ ለእኛ ተናገረን። 3እርሱ የእግዚአብሔር ክብር ነጸብራ ቅና የባሕርዩ ትክክለኛ ምሳሌ ሆኖ፣ በኀያል ቃሉ ሁሉን ደግፎ ይዞአል፤ የኀጢአት መንጻት ካስገኘ በኋላ በሰማያት በግርማው ቀኝ ተቀመጠ። 4ስለዚህ የወረሰው ስም ከመላእክት ስም እንደሚበልጥ ሁሉ፣ እርሱም ከመላእክት እጅግ የላቀ ሆኖአል።

5እግዚአብሔር፣

“አንተ ልጄ ነህ፤

እኔ ዛሬ ወልጄሃለሁ፤”1፥5 ወይም እኔ ዛሬ አባት ሆንሁህ

ወይስ ደግሞ፣

“እኔ አባት እሆነዋለሁ፤

እርሱም ልጅ ይሆነኛል” ያለው ከመላእክት ከቶ ለማን ነው?

6ደግሞም እግዚአብሔር በኵሩን ወደ ዓለም ሲያስገባ፣

“የእግዚአብሔር መላእክት ሁሉ1፥6 የሙት ባሕር ጥቅልሎችንና ሰብዓ ሊቃናትን ይመ ይስገዱለት” ይላል።

7ስለ መላእክትም ሲናገር፣

“መላእክቱን ነፋሳት፣

አገልጋዮቹንም የእሳት ነበልባል ያደርጋል” ይላል።

8ስለ ልጁ ግን እንዲህ ይላል፤

“አምላክ ሆይ፤ ዙፋንህ ከዘላለም እስከ ዘላለም ጸንቶ ይኖራል፤

ጽድቅም የመንግሥትህ በትር ይሆናል፤

9ጽድቅን ወደድህ፤ ዐመፃን ጠላህ፤

ስለዚህ እግዚአብሔር አምላክህ ከባልንጀሮችህ በላይ አስቀመጠህ፣

የደስታንም ዘይት ቀባህ።”

10ደግሞም እንዲህ ይላል፤ “ጌታ ሆይ፤ አንተ

በመጀመሪያ የምድርን መሠረት አኖርህ፤

ሰማያትም የእጆችህ ሥራ ናቸው።

11እነርሱ ይጠፋሉ፤ አንተ ግን ጸንተህ ትኖራለህ፤

ሁሉም እንደ ልብስ ያረጃሉ፤

12እንደ መጐናጸፊያ ትጠቀልላቸዋለህ፤

እንደ ልብስም ይለወጣሉ።

አንተ ግን ያው አንተ ነህ፤

ዘመንህም ፍጻሜ የለውም።”

13እግዚአብሔር፣

“ጠላቶችህን የእግርህ መርገጫ እስከማደርግልህ ድረስ፣

በቀኜ ተቀመጥ” ያለው ከመላእክት ከቶ ለማን ነው?

14መላእክት ሁሉ መዳንን የሚወርሱትን ለማገልገል የሚላኩ አገልጋይ መናፍስት አይደሉምን?

Hebrews 1:1-14

God Speaks His Final Word Through His Son

1In the past, God spoke to our people through the prophets. He spoke at many times. He spoke in different ways. 2But in these last days, he has spoken to us through his Son. He is the one whom God appointed to receive all things. God also made everything through him. 3The Son is the shining brightness of God’s glory. He is the exact likeness of God’s being. He uses his powerful word to hold all things together. He provided the way for people to be made pure from sin. Then he sat down at the right hand of the King, the Majesty in heaven. 4So he became higher than the angels. The name he received is more excellent than theirs.

The Son Is Greater Than the Angels

5God never said to any of the angels,

“You are my Son.

Today I have become your Father.” (Psalm 2:7)

Or,

“I will be his Father.

And he will be my Son.” (2 Samuel 7:14; 1 Chronicles 17:13)

6God’s first and only Son is over all things. When God brings him into the world, he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.” (Deuteronomy 32:43)

7Here is something else God says about the angels.

“God makes his angels to be like spirits.

He makes those who serve him to be like flashes of lightning.” (Psalm 104:4)

8But here is what he says about the Son.

“You are God. Your throne will last for ever and ever.

Your kingdom will be ruled by justice.

9You have loved what is right and hated what is evil.

So your God has placed you above your companions.

He has filled you with joy by pouring the sacred oil on your head.” (Psalm 45:6,7)

10He also says,

“Lord, in the beginning you made the earth secure. You placed it on its foundations.

The heavens are the work of your hands.

11They will pass away. But you remain.

They will all wear out like a piece of clothing.

12You will roll them up like a robe.

They will be changed as a person changes clothes.

But you remain the same.

Your years will never end.” (Psalm 102:25–27)

13God never said to an angel,

“Sit at my right hand

until I put your enemies

under your control.” (Psalm 110:1)

14All angels are spirits who serve. God sends them to serve those who will receive salvation.
