Bible: Hebrews 1:4-14; 2:1-4
The Son Is Superior to Angels
1:5 For to which of the angels did God 3 ever say, “You are my son! Today I have fathered you”? 4 And in another place 5 he says, 6 “I will be his father and he will be my son.” 7 1:6 But when he again brings 8 his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all the angels of God worship him!” 9 1:7 And he says 10 of the angels, “He makes 11 his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire,” 12 1:8 but of 13 the Son he says, 14
“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, 15
and a righteous scepter 16 is the scepter of your kingdom.
1:9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness.
“You founded the earth in the beginning, Lord, 19
and the heavens are the works of your hands.
1:11 They will perish, but you continue.
And they will all grow old like a garment,
1:12 and like a robe you will fold them up
and like a garment 20 they will be changed,
but you are the same and your years will never run out.” 21
1:13 But to which of the angels 22 has he ever said, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”? 23 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to serve those 24 who will inherit salvation?
2:1 The heavens and the earth 1 were completed with everything that was in them. 2 2:2 By 3 the seventh day God finished the work that he had been doing, 4 and he ceased 5 on the seventh day all the work that he had been doing. 2:3 God blessed the seventh day and made it holy 6 because on it he ceased all the work that he 7 had been doing in creation. 8
