Hebrews 1

Jesus Christ Is God’s Son

1Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe. The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names.

The Son Is Greater Than the Angels

For God never said to any angel what he said to Jesus:

“You are my Son.
    Today I have become your Father.[a]

God also said,

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

And when he brought his supreme[c] Son into the world, God said,[d]

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

Regarding the angels, he says,

“He sends his angels like the winds,
    his servants like flames of fire.”[f]

But to the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever.
    You rule with a scepter of justice.
You love justice and hate evil.
    Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you,
    pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.”[g]

10 He also says to the Son,

“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth
    and made the heavens with your hands.
11 They will perish, but you remain forever.
    They will wear out like old clothing.
12 You will fold them up like a cloak
    and discard them like old clothing.
But you are always the same;
    you will live forever.”[h]

13 And God never said to any of the angels,

“Sit in the place of honor at my right hand
    until I humble your enemies,
    making them a footstool under your feet.”[i]

14 Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.

List Hebrejom 1

Vznešenosť Božieho Syna

1 Mnoho ráz a mnohorakým spôsobom sa Boh oddávna prihováral našim otcom ústami prorokov.

Ale teraz, v týchto posledných dňoch, prehovoril k nám vo svojom Synovi. Jeho ustanovil za dediča všetkého a skrze neho stvoril aj svet.

On je odbleskom Božej slávy a obrazom Božej podstaty. Jeho slovo je sila, ktorá udržiava celý vesmír. Svojou smrťou nás zbavil ťarchy hriechu, zaujal najčestnejšie miesto po boku Božieho majestátu v nebesiach

a stal sa o toľko vyšším od anjelov, o koľko vznešenejšie meno zdedil ako oni.

Kristus väčší ako anjeli

Veď komu z anjelov kedy Boh povedal: Ty si môj Syn, ja som ťa dnes splodil?" Alebo na inom mieste: Ja budem jeho Otcom a on bude mojím Synom?"

A keď uvádza Prvorodeného do sveta, hovorí zasa: Nech sa mu klaňajú všetci Boží anjeli."

A o anjeloch hovorí ako o vanutí vetra a ohnivých plameňoch.

Ale o svojom Synovi hovorí: Bože, tvoja vláda bude trvať na večné veky a bude v nej panovať spravodlivosť.

Lebo ty miluješ právo a nenávidíš bezprávie. Preto ťa tvoj Boh vyvýšil nad ostatných a obdaril radosťou."

10 A na inom mieste o ňom hovorí: Ty si, Pane, na počiatku stvoril zem a nebesia sú dielom tvojich rúk.

11-12 Nebesia pominú, ale ty zostaneš naveky."

13 Alebo povedal Boh niektorému z anjelov: Seď po mojej pravici, kým nepoložím tvojich nepriateľov za podnožku tvojim nohám?"

14 Všetci anjeli sú iba bytosti, ktoré slúžia Bohu. Posiela ich, aby pomáhali všetkým, ktorým chce darovať spásu.
