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 sceptre of justice will be the sceptre 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?

希伯来书 1

划时代的启示

1在古代,上帝曾借着先知以各种方式多次向我们的祖先说话; 在这世界的末期,祂又借着自己的儿子亲自向我们说话。上帝早已立祂承受万物,并借着祂创造了宇宙万物。 祂正是上帝荣耀的光辉,是上帝本体的真像。祂用自己充满能力的话语维系万物。祂洗净了世人的罪之后,便坐在天上至高上帝的右边。 祂既承受了比天使更高的名分,就远超越天使。

上帝从未对任何一个天使说:

“你是我的儿子,我今日成为你父亲。”

或说:

“我要做你的父亲,你要做我的儿子。”

上帝差遣祂的长子到世上来时,说:

“上帝的天使都要敬拜祂。”

上帝提到天使的时候,也只是说:

“上帝使祂的天使成为风,使祂的仆役成为火焰。”

但论到祂的儿子,祂却说:

“上帝啊,你的宝座永远长存,
你以公义的杖执掌王权。
你喜爱公义,憎恶邪恶。
所以上帝,你的上帝,
用喜乐之油膏你,使你超过同伴。”

10 此外又说:

“主啊,太初你奠立大地的根基,
亲手创造诸天。
11 天地都要消亡,但你永远长存。
天地都会像衣服渐渐破旧,
12 你要像卷外衣一样把天地卷起来。
天地将如衣服一样被更换,
但你永远不变,
你的年日永无穷尽。”

13 上帝从未对任何一个天使说:

“你坐在我的右边,
等我使你的仇敌成为你的脚凳。”

14 天使岂不都是服役的灵吗?他们奉差遣,岂不是去为那些将要承受救恩的人服务吗?
