Hebrews 12 in Henry Alford, The Greek New Testament, with Notes.the last of these days He has spoken to us in Son, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things, also by and through Whom He created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time . 3 He is the sole expression of the glory of God , and He is the perfect imprint and very image of nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high, 4 He Himself became as much superior to angels as the glorious Name (title) which He has inherited is different from and more excellent than theirs. 5 For to which of the angels did ever say, You are My Son, today I have begotten You ? And again, I will be to Him a Father, and He will be to Me a Son? 6 Moreover, when He brings the firstborn Son Henry Alford, The Greek New Testament, with Notes and W. Robertson Nicoll, ed., The Expositor's Greek New Testament.again into the habitable world, He says, Let all the angels of God worship Him. 7 Referring to the angels He says, Who makes His angels winds and His ministering servants flames of fire; 8 But as to the Son, He says to Him, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever (to the ages of the ages), and the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of absolute righteousness (of justice and straightforwardness). 9 You have loved righteousness and You have hated lawlessness (injustice and iniquity). Therefore God, Your God (Arthur S. Way, Way's Epistles: The Letters of St. Paul to Seven Churches and Three Friends.Godhead), has anointed You with the oil of exultant joy and gladness above and beyond Your companions. 10 And , You, Lord, did lay the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the works of Your hands. 11 They will perish, but You remain and continue permanently; they will all grow old and wear out like a garment. 12 Like a mantle You will roll them up, and they will be changed and replaced by others. But You remain the same, and Your years will never end nor come to failure. 13 Besides, to which of the angels has He ever said, Sit at My right hand till I make your enemies a stool for your feet? 14 Are not the angels all ministering spirits (servants) sent out in the service of those who are to inherit salvation?
