Hebrews 1

God’s Final Word in His Son

1God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, [a]in these last days has spoken to us [b]in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the [c]world. [d]And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and [e]upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.

For to which of the angels did He ever say,

You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You”?

And again,

“I will be a Father to Him
And He shall be a Son to Me”?

And [f]when He again brings the firstborn into [g]the world, He says,

And let all the angels of God worship Him.”

And of the angels He says,

Who makes His angels winds,
And His ministers a flame of fire.”

But of the Son He says,

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
And the righteous scepter is the scepter of [h]His kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of gladness above Your companions.”

10 And,

You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the works of Your hands;
11 They will perish, but You remain;
And they all will become old like a garment,
12 And like a mantle You will roll them up;
Like a garment they will also be changed.
But You are the same,
And Your years will not come to an end.”

13 But to which of the angels has He ever said,

Sit at My right hand,
Until I make Your enemies
A footstool for Your feet”?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?

Knijga O Kristu

Poslanica Hebrejima 1

Ali u ove zadnje dane nama je progovorio kroz svojega Sina. Njega, po kojemu je sve stvorio, postavio je za baštinika svega.

Sin je odsjaj Božje slave i otisak njegova Bića. On održava svemir snagom svoje silne riječi. Pošto je umro da nas očisti od grijeha, sjeo je na počasno mjesto, zdesna veličanstvenome Bogu u nebu.

Isus je uzvišeniji od anđela

To pokazuje da je Božji Sin mnogo uzvišeniji od anđela, kao što je i ime koje je baštinio uzvišenije od njihovih imena.

Jer kome je od anđela ikada rekao:
    'Ti si moj Sin,
            danas sam ti postao Ocem.'[a]I još:
    'Ja ću mu biti Otac,
            a on će meni biti Sin.'[b]

A kada je predstavio svojeg prvorođenca svijetu, Bog je rekao: 'Klanjajte mu se, svi anđeli Božji!'[c]

Bog za svoje anđele kaže da ih on čini
    'glasnicima brzim poput vjetra
            i slugama poput ognjenih plamenova.'[d]

Ali za svojega Sina kaže:
    'Tvoje kraljevstvo, o Bože,
            traje zauvijek.
    Ti vladaš žezlom pravednosti.

Ti ljubiš pravednost i mrziš nepravednost.
    Zato te je, Bože, tvoj Bog, pomazao
            uljem radosti više nego ijednoga tvojeg druga.'[e]

10 I još:
    'Gospodine, u početku si postavio
            temelje zemlji
    i nebesa su djelo tvojih ruku.

11 Čak će i ona nestati, ali ti ostaješ zauvijek.

12 Smotat ćeš ih poput starog kaputa
    i nestat će kao stara odjeća.
    Ali ti si uvijek isti;
            tvojim godinama nema svršetka.'[f]

13 Bog nikada nije nekom anđelu rekao:
    'Sjedni mi s desne strane
            dok ti ne bacim pod noge
            tvoje neprijatelje.'[g]

14 Jer anđeli su samo poslužnički duhovi koje Bog šalje služiti onima koji će baštiniti spasenje.
