Hebrews 1

God’s Final Word: His Son

1In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.

The Son Superior to Angels

For to which of the angels did God ever say,

“You are my Son;
    today I have become your Father”[a]?

Or again,

“I will be his Father,
    and he will be my Son”[b]?

And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.”[c]

In speaking of the angels he says,

“He makes his angels spirits,
    and his servants flames of fire.”[d]

But about the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
    a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
    therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
    by anointing you with the oil of joy.”[e]

10 He also says,

“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth,
    and the heavens are the work of your hands.
11 They will perish, but you remain;
    they will all wear out like a garment.
12 You will roll them up like a robe;
    like a garment they will be changed.
But you remain the same,
    and your years will never end.”[f]

13 To which of the angels did God ever say,

“Sit at my right hand
    until I make your enemies
    a footstool for your feet”[g]?

14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

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?
