Hebrews 1:6-7

Context
1:6 But when he again brings 1  his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all the angels of God worship him! 2  1:7 And he says 3  of the angels, “He makes 4  his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire,” 5 

Hebrews 1:14

Context
1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to serve those 6  who will inherit salvation?

1 tn Or “And again when he brings.” The translation adopted in the text looks forward to Christ’s second coming to earth. Some take “again” to introduce the quotation (as in 1:5) and understand this as Christ’s first coming, but this view does not fit well with Heb 2:7. Others understand it as his exaltation/ascension to heaven, but this takes the phrase “into the world” in an unlikely way.

2 sn A quotation combining themes from Deut 32:43 and Ps 97:7.

3 sn The Greek correlative conjunctions μέν and δέ (men and de) emphasize the contrastive parallelism of vs. 7 (what God says about the angels) over against vv. 8-9 and vv. 10-12 (what God says about the son).

4 tn Grk “He who makes.”

5 sn A quotation from Ps 104:4.

6 tn Grk “sent for service for the sake of those.”
