Hebrews 1:1-3a-13 The Message (MSG)Going through a long line of prophets, God has been addressing our ancestors in different ways for centuries. Recently he spoke to us directly through his Son. By his Son, God created the world in the beginning, and it will all belong to the Son at the end. This Son perfectly mirrors God, and is stamped with God’s nature. He holds everything together by what he says—powerful words!After he finished the sacrifice for sins, the Son took his honored place high in the heavens right alongside God, far higher than any angel in rank and rule. Did God ever say to an angel, “You’re my Son; today I celebrate you” or “I’m his Father, he’s my Son”? When he presents his honored Son to the world, he says, “All angels must worship him.”Regarding angels he says,The messengers are winds,the servants are tongues of fire.But he says to the Son,You’re God, and on the throne for good;your rule makes everything right.You love it when things are right;you hate it when things are wrong.That is why God, your God,poured fragrant oil on your head,Marking you out as king,far above your dear companions.And again to the Son,You, Master, started it all, laid earth’s foundations,then crafted the stars in the sky.Earth and sky will wear out, but not you;they become threadbare like an old coat;You’ll fold them up like a worn-out cloak,and lay them away on the shelf.But you’ll stay the same, year after year;you’ll never fade, you’ll never wear out.And did he ever say anything like this to an angel?

And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power.

Hebrews 1:2-13 New Living Translation (NLT)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.For God never said to any angel what he said to Jesus:“You are my Son.Today I have become your Father.”God also said,“I will be his Father,and he will be my Son.”And when he brought his supreme Son into the world, God said,“Let all of God’s angels worship him.”Regarding the angels, he says,“He sends his angels like the winds,his servants like flames of fire.”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.”He also says to the Son,“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earthand made the heavens with your hands.They will perish, but you remain forever.They will wear out like old clothing.You will fold them up like a cloakand discard them like old clothing.But you are always the same;you will live forever.”And God never said to any of the angels
Hebrews 1:2-13 King James Version (KJV)hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time,Thou art my Son,This day have I begotten thee?And again,I will be to him a Father,And he shall be to me a Son?And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith,Who maketh his angels spirits,And his ministers a flame of fire.But unto the Son he saith,Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever:A sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity;Therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed theeWith the oil of gladness above thy fellows.And,Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth;And the heavens are the works of thine hands:They shall perish; but thou remainest:And they all shall wax old as doth a garment;And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up,And they shall be changed:But thou art the same,And thy years shall not fail.But to which of the angels said he at any time,Sit on my right hand,Until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

Hebrews 1:2-13 New Century Version (NCV)But now in these last days God has spoken to us through his Son. God has chosen his Son to own all things, and through him he made the world. The Son reflects the glory of God and shows exactly what God is like. He holds everything together with his powerful word. When the Son made people clean from their sins, he sat down at the right side of God, the Great One in heaven. The Son became much greater than the angels, and God gave him a name that is much greater than theirs.This is because God never said to any of the angels,“You are my Son.Today I have become your Father.”Nor did God say of any angel,“I will be his Father,and he will be my Son.”And when God brings his firstborn Son into the world, he says,“Let all God’s angels worship him.”This is what God said about the angels:“God makes his angels become like winds.He makes his servants become like flames of fire.”But God said this about his Son:“God, your throne will last forever and ever.You will rule your kingdom with fairness.You love right and hate evil,so God has chosen you from among your friends;he has set you apart with much joy.”God also says,“Lord, in the beginning you made the earth,and your hands made the skies.They will be destroyed, but you will remain.They will all wear out like clothes.You will fold them like a coat.And, like clothes, you will change them.But you never change,and your life will never end.”And God never said this to an angel:“Sit by me at my right sideuntil I put your enemies under your control.”
