Messianic Enthronement.* 5For to which of the angels did God ever say:
“You are my son; this day I have begotten you”?d
“I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me”?
6And again, when he leads* the first-born into the world, he says:
“Let all the angels of God worship him.”e
“He makes his angels winds
and his ministers a fiery flame”;f
“Your throne, O God,* stands forever and ever;
and a righteous scepter is the scepter of your kingdom.g
9You loved justice and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, anointed you
with the oil of gladness above your companions”;
“At the beginning, O Lord, you established the earth,h
and the heavens are the works of your hands.
11They will perish, but you remain;
and they will all grow old like a garment.
12You will roll them up like a cloak,
and like a garment they will be changed.
But you are the same, and your years will have no end.”
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies your footstool”?i
14Are they not all ministering spirits sent to serve, for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?j
The Parable of the Lost Sheep.* 10f “See that you do not despise one of these little ones,* for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father. [ 11 ]* g 12 What is your opinion? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray? 13And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. 14In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that one of these little ones be lost.
