Ivrim 1 – איגרת שאול אל העברים א


1From of old Elohim spoke to our fathers by the Nevi’im in many forms and in many ways; and in these Akharit HaYamim He has spoken to us by His Son, 2whom He has appointed as heir of all things, and by whom also He made the worlds; 3for He is the brightness of His Kavod, and the express image of His Nature, upholding all things by the power of His D’var; and when He had Himself cleansed our sins, then He sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.

4And He is altogether greater than the Malakhim, just as the Name He has inherited is a more excellent Name than theirs.  5For to which of the Malakhim has Elohim at any time said, “You are my Son, this day have I fathered you?” And again, “I will be as a Father to him, and He shall be to me as a Son?”  6And again, when He brought the firstborn into the world, He said, “Let all the Malakhim of Elohim worship Him.”  7And of the Malakhim He said thus, “Who makes His Malakhim spirits; His ministers a flaming fire.”  8But of HaBen He said, “Your throne, O Elohim, is forever and ever; the scepter of Your Malkhut is a righteous scepter.  9You have loved tzedaka and hated iniquity; therefore, Elohim, even Your Elohim, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than your fellows.  10And from the very beginning You have laid the foundations of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Your hands; 11they shall pass away; but You endure; and they all shall wear out like a garment; 12and as a cloak You shall fold them up, and they shall be changed; but You are the same, and Your years shall never end.”  13For to which of the Malakhim has He at any time said, “Sit at my right hand, until I make Your enemies the stool under Your feet?”  14Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth in the service of those who shall inherit HaKhayim?
