And again, when God brings his firstborn(A) into the world,(B) he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.”[a](C)

In speaking of the angels he says,

“He makes his angels spirits,
    and his servants flames of fire.”[b](D)

But about the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;(E)
    a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
    therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions(F)
    by anointing you with the oil(G) of joy.”[c](H)
