New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised
The Son Is Superior to Angels
5 For to which of the angels did God ever say,
‘You are my Son;
today I have begotten you’?
‘I will be his Father,
and he will be my Son’?
6 And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,
‘Let all God’s angels worship him.’
7 Of the angels he says,
‘He makes his angels winds,
and his servants flames of fire.’
8 But of the Son he says,
‘Your throne, O God, is[a] for ever and ever,
and the righteous sceptre is the sceptre of your[b] kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has anointed you
with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.’
‘In the beginning, Lord, you founded the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
11 they will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like clothing;
12 like a cloak you will roll them up,
and like clothing[c] they will be changed.
But you are the same,
and your years will never end.’
13 But to which of the angels has he ever said,
‘Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet’?
