Hebrews 1:3

Context
1:3 The Son is 1  the radiance of his glory and the representation of his essence, and he sustains all things by his powerful word, 2  and so when he had accomplished cleansing for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. 3 

Hebrews 1:13

Context

1:13 But to which of the angels 4  has he ever said, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”? 5 

1 tn Grk “who being…and sustaining.” Heb 1:1-4 form one skillfully composed sentence in Greek, but it must be broken into shorter segments to correspond to contemporary English usage, which does not allow for sentences of this length and complexity.

2 tn Grk “by the word of his power.”

3 sn An allusion to Ps 110:1, quoted often in Hebrews.

4 sn The parallel phrases to which of the angels in vv. 5 and 13 show the unity of this series of quotations (vv. 5-14) in revealing the superiority of the Son over angels (v. 4).

5 sn A quotation from Ps 110:1.
