Hebrews 1:1-4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The Nature of the Son

Long ago God spoke to the fathers by the prophets at different times and in different ways. In these last days, He has spoken to us by His Son. God has appointed Him heir of all things and made the universe[a] through Him. The Son is the radiance[b] of God’s glory and the exact expression[c] of His nature, sustaining all things by His powerful word. After making purification for sins,[d] He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.[e] So He became higher in rank than the angels, just as the name He inherited is superior to theirs.

Hebrews 1:8-12 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

but to[a] the Son:

Your throne, God,
is forever and ever,
and the scepter of Your kingdom
is a scepter of justice.
You have loved righteousness
and hated lawlessness;
this is why God, Your God,
has anointed You
with the oil of joy
rather than Your companions.[b][c]

10 And:

In the beginning, Lord,
You established the earth,
and the heavens are the works of Your hands;
11 they will perish, but You remain.
They will all wear out like clothing;
12 You will roll them up like a cloak,[d]
and they will be changed like a robe.
But You are the same,
and Your years will never end.[e]
