Contents: Hebrews 1:7-12
7 Of the angels he says,
Who makes his angels winds,
and his servants a flame of fire.
8 But of the Son he says,
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.
The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your Kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity;
therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
You, Lord, in the beginning, laid the foundation of the earth.
The heavens are the works of your hands.
11 They will perish, but you continue.
They all will grow old like a garment does.
12 You will roll them up like a mantle,
but you are the same.
Your years will not fail.
