1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
1 Multifariam, multisque modis olim Deus loquens patribus in prophetis:
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
2 novissime, diebus istis locutus est nobis in Filio, quem constituit hæredem universorum, per quem fecit et sæcula:
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding
B* ⟨manifesting⟩all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our
ℵBA ⟨made a purification from⟩sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
3 qui cum sit splendor gloriæ, et figura substantiæ ejus, portansque omnia verbo virtutis suæ, purgationem peccatorum faciens, sedet ad dexteram majestatis in excelsis:
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
4 tanto melior angelis effectus, quanto differentius præ illis nomen hæreditavit.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
5 Cui enim dixit aliquando angelorum: Filius meus es tu, ego hodie genui te? Et rursum: Ego ero illi in patrem, et ipse erit mihi in filium?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
6 Et cum iterum introducit primogenitum in orbem terræ, dicit: Et adorent eum omnes angeli Dei.
7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
7 Et ad angelos quidem dicit: Qui facit angelos suos spiritus, et ministros suos flammam ignis.
8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness
ℵBA ⟨and the sceptre of rectitude⟩is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
8 Ad Filium autem: Thronus tuus Deus in sæculum sæculi: virga æquitatis, virga regni tui.
9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity
ℵA ⟨unrighteousness⟩; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
9 Dilexisti justitiam, et odisti iniquitatem: propterea unxit te Deus, Deus tuus, oleo exsultationis præ participibus tuis.
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
10 Et: Tu in principio, Domine, terram fundasti: et opera manuum tuarum sunt cæli.
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
11 Ipsi peribunt, tu autem permanebis, et omnes ut vestimentum veterascent:
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up
ℵ ⟨change them, as a garment⟩; BA ⟨fold them up, as a garment⟩, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
12 et velut amictum mutabis eos, et mutabuntur: tu autem idem ipse es, et anni tui non deficient.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
13 Ad quem autem angelorum dixit aliquando: Sede a dextris meis, quoadusque ponam inimicos tuos scabellum pedum tuorum?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
14 Nonne omnes sunt administratorii spiritus, in ministerium missi propter eos, qui hæreditatem capient salutis?
