having become so much better than the angels, as (A)He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

The Son Exalted Above Angels

For to which of the angels did He ever say:

(B)“You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You”?

And again:

(C)“I will be to Him a Father,
And He shall be to Me a Son”?

But when He again brings (D)the firstborn into the world, He says:

(E)“Let all the angels of God worship Him.”

And of the angels He says:

(F)“Who makes His angels spirits
And His ministers a flame of fire.”

But to the Son He says:

(G)“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A [a]scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;
Therefore God, Your God, (H)has anointed You
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”

10 And:

(I)“You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth,
And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
11 (J)They will perish, but You remain;
And (K)they will all grow old like a garment;
12 Like a cloak You will fold them up,
And they will be changed.
But You are the (L)same,
And Your years will not fail.”

13 But to which of the angels has He ever said:

(M)“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?

14 (N)Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will (O)inherit salvation?
