10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands.

11 They shall perish, but thou remainest and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;

12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation ?


CHEREFORE we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

9 Ma ben veggiamo coronato di gloria e d' onore, per la passion della morte, Gesù, che è stato fatto per un poco di tempo minor degli angeli, acciocchè per la grazia di Dio gustasse la morte per tutti. 10 Perciocchè, egli era convenevole a colui, per cagion di cui, e per cui son tutte le cose, di consacrare per sofferenze il principe della salute di molti figliuoli, i quali egli avea da addurre a gloria.

8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
