1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding
B* ⟨manifesting⟩all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our
ℵBA ⟨made a purification from⟩sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 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?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8 But unto the Son , Thy throne, O God, for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness
ℵBA ⟨and the sceptre of rectitude⟩the sceptre of thy kingdom.
9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity
ℵA ⟨unrighteousness⟩; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up
ℵ ⟨change them, as a garment⟩; BA ⟨fold them up, as a garment⟩, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
