1 Christ in these last times comming to vs from the Father, 4 is preferred aboue the Angels, both in Person and Office.

1God who at sundry times, and in diuers manners, spake in time past vnto the Fathers by the Prophets,

2Hath in these last dayes spoken vnto vs by his Sonne, whom he hath appointed heire of all things, by whom also he made the worlds,

3Who being the brightnesse of his glory, and the expresse image of his person, and vpholding all things by the word of his power, when hee had by himselfe purged our sinnes, sate down on þe right hand of the Maiestie on high,3

4Being made so much better then the Angels, as hee hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent Name then they.

5For vnto which of the Angels said he at any time, Thou art my sonne, this day haue I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Sonne.

6And againe, when he bringeth in the first begotten into the world, hee saith, And let all the Angels of God worship him.

Christ aboue the Angels.

7And of the Angels he saith: Who maketh his Angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

8But vnto the Sonne, he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for euer and euer: a scepter of righteousnesse is the scepter of thy kingdome.8

9Thou hast loued righteousnesse, and hated iniquitie, therefore God, euen thy God hath anointed thee with the oyle of gladnesse aboue thy fellowes.

10And, thou Lord in the beginning hast layed the foundation of the earth: and the heauens are the works of thine hands.10

11They shall perish, but thou remainest: and they all shal waxe old as doth a garment.

12And as a vesture shalt thou fold them vp, and they shall be changed, but thou art the same, and thy yeeres shall not faile?

13But to which of the Angels said hee at any time, Sit on my right hand, vntill I make thine enemies thy footstoole?13

14Are they not all ministring spirits, sent foorth to minister for them, who shall be heires of saluation?
