How Does the SDA Clear Word Bible Compare to God's Word?


Hebrews 1:1-14  (King James Version)

1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time,

Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee?

And again,

I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith,

And let all the angels of God worship him.

7 And of the angels he saith,

Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

8 But unto the Son he saith,

Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

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?


Hebrews 1:1-14 (New International Version)

1 In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,

2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.

3 The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.

5 For to which of the angels did God ever say,

"You are my Son; today I have become your Father"?

Or again,

"I will be his Father, and he will be my Son"?

6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,

"Let all God's angels worship him."

7 In speaking of the angels he says,

"He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire."

8 But about the Son he says,

"Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.

9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy."

10 He also says,

"In the beginning, O Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.

11 They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment.

12 You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end."

13 To which of the angels did God ever say,

"Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet"?

14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

Hebrews 1:1-14  (SDA Clear Word Bible)

1 God, who in the past spoke to our fathers through the prophets many times and in a variety of ways,

2 has in our day spoken to us through His Son, who is the rightful Heir of this world because it was through Him that God created all things.

3 Christ is the outshining of God's glory, the visible expression of God's thought, the perfect representation of God's own being. He holds all things in the universe together by the power of His word. He singlehandedly saved us from the power of sin and is now seated on the right hand of the mighty God of the universe.

4 This makes Christ far superior to angels, as shown by the name and title God gave Him which can't even be compared with the names given to angels.

5 When did God ever say to an angel,

"You are my Son because I have fathered you"?

Or, when did He say to any of the angels,

"I will become your Father and you will become my Son"?

6 But when Jesus was born into this world, God said,

"Let all the angels bow down and worship Him!"

7 Angels are created beings who serve God in whatever capacity is needed. As the scriptures say,

"His angels are as swift as the wind and as fearsome as flames of fire."

8 In contrast, God spoke to His Son, saying,

"Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever because righteousness is the foundation of your government.

9 You love what is right and hate what is wrong. Therefore, I have exalted you above every other being in the universe and have done so with gladness and joy."

10 And God also said to His Son,

"You existed before the beginning of time. You carried out our plan and created the earth, shaping the sky above it with your own hands.

11 They will pass away, but you will remain. The earth and the sky will wear out like a piece of clothing.

12 You will fold them up like a useless old garment. They will be changed, but you will always be the same and your years will never end."

13 To which of the angels did God at any time say,

"Come sit at my right side until I subdue all your enemies and they acknowledge you as Lord and give you honor that's rightfully yours."

14 Are not angels created to serve us? Are they not sent to help those who will be saved and inherit the earth? They are, but Christ is Lord and He's as superior to them as the heavens are above the earth.
