New International Version

Hebrews 1:1-14

God’s Final Word: His Son

1In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2but 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. 3The 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. 4So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.

The Son Superior to Angels

5For to which of the angels did God ever say,

“You are my Son;

today I have become your Father”1:5 Psalm 2:7?

Or again,

“I will be his Father,

and he will be my Son”1:5 2 Samuel 7:14; 1 Chron. 17:13?

6And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.”1:6 Deut. 32:43 (see Dead Sea Scrolls and Septuagint)

7In speaking of the angels he says,

“He makes his angels spirits,

and his servants flames of fire.”1:7 Psalm 104:4

8But 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.

9You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;

therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions

by anointing you with the oil of joy.”1:9 Psalm 45:6,7

10He also says,

“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth,

and the heavens are the work of your hands.

11They will perish, but you remain;

they will all wear out like a garment.

12You 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.”1:12 Psalm 102:25-27

13To which of the angels did God ever say,

“Sit at my right hand

until I make your enemies

a footstool for your feet”1:13 Psalm 110:1?

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

Abaebbulaniya 1:1-14

Omwana mukulu okusinga bamalayika

11:1 a Yk 9:29; Beb 2:2, 3 b Bik 2:30 c Kbl 12:6, 8Edda, Katonda yayogeranga ne bajjajjaffe mu ngeri nnyingi ez’enjawulo ng’ayita mu bannabbi; 21:2 a Zab 2:8 b Yk 1:3naye 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. 31:3 a Yk 1:14 b Bak 1:17 c Beb 7:27 d Mak 16:19Amasamasa 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. 41:4 Bef 1:21Bw’atyo n’asinga bamalayika, nga kyeragira ku linnya lye okuba ery’ekitiibwa okusinga amannya gaabwe.

51:5 a Zab 2:7 b 2Sa 7:14Kubanga 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?”

61:6 a Beb 10:5 b Ma 32:43; Zab 97:7Era nate bw’aleeta Omwana we omubereberye mu nsi, agamba nti,

“Bamalayika ba Katonda bonna bamusinzenga.”

71:7 Zab 104:4Era ayogera ku bamalayika nti,

“Afuula bamalayika be ng’empewo,

n’afuula n’abaweereza be ng’ennimi z’omuliro.”

8Naye ku Mwana ayogera nti,

“Entebe yo ey’Obwakabaka, Ayi Katonda, ya lubeerera emirembe n’emirembe;

obutuukirivu, gwe muggo ogw’obwakabaka bwo.

91:9 a Baf 2:9 b Is 61:1, 3Wayagala obutuukirivu n’okyawa obujeemu.

Katonda, era Katonda wo kyeyava akufukako

amafuta ag’omuzeeyituuni agaleeta essanyu okusinga banno.”

10Ayongera n’agamba nti,

“Mukama ku lubereberye wassaawo omusingi gw’ensi,

era n’eggulu mirimu gwa mukono gwo.

111:11 Is 34:4Ebyo biriggwaawo, naye ggwe olibeerera emirembe gyonna,

era byonna birikaddiwa ng’ekyambalo bwe kikaddiwa.

121:12 a Beb 13:8 b Zab 102:25-27Era olibizingako ng’ekooti bwe zingibwako,

era birikyusibwa ng’ekyambalo bwe kikyusibwa.

Naye ggwe oba bumu,

so n’emyaka gyo tegirikoma.”

131:13 a Yos 10:24; Beb 10:13 b Zab 110:1Ani ku bamalayika gwe yali agambye nti,

“Tuula wano ku mukono gwange ogwa ddyo,

okutuusa lwe ndifufuggaza abalabe bo,

ne bafuuka entebe y’ebigere byo”?

141:14 a Zab 103:20 b Beb 5:9Bamalayika bonna, myoyo egitumibwa okuweereza abo abagenda okusikira obulokozi.
