All of the beautiful descriptions of the lofty character of Jesus serve to underpin the main point that God has finally spoken through him (Jesus), and this message from/about Jesus is of higher priority and weight and import than that which was mediated by angels precisely because of Jesus' greater worth -- so safety is found in continually hearing and appropriating that gospel (persistently paying close attention to it).

Hebrews 1:1-2:4
NT

esv
Πολυμερῶς καὶ πολυτρόπως πάλαι ὁ θεὸς λαλήσας τοῖς πατράσιν ἐν τοῖς προφήταις
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,
ἐπʼ ἐσχάτου τῶν ἡμερῶν τούτων ἐλάλησεν ἡμῖν ἐν υἱῷ,
but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son,
ὃν ἔθηκεν κληρονόμον πάντων,
whom he appointed the heir of all things,
διʼ οὗ καὶ ἐποίησεν τοὺς αἰῶνας•
through whom also he created the world.
progression
ὃς ὢν ἀπαύγασμα τῆς δόξης
He is the radiance of the glory of God
καὶ χαρακτὴρ τῆς ὑποστάσεως αὐτοῦ,
and the exact imprint of his nature,
φέρων τε τὰ πάντα τῷ ῥήματι τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ,
and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.
καθαρισμὸν τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ποιησάμενος
After making purification for sins,
ἐκάθισεν ἐν δεξιᾷ τῆς μεγαλωσύνης ἐν ὑψηλοῖς,
he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
temporal
τοσούτῳ κρείττων γενόμενος τῶν ἀγγέλων
having become as much superior to angels
ὅσῳ διαφορώτερον παρʼ αὐτοὺς κεκληρονόμηκεν ὄνομα.
as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
comparison
Τίνι γὰρ εἶπέν ποτε τῶν ἀγγέλων• υἱός μου εἶ σύ,
For to which of the angels did God ever say, "You are my Son,
ἐγὼ σήμερον γεγέννηκά σε;
today I have begotten you"?
καὶ πάλιν• ἐγὼ ἔσομαι αὐτῷ εἰς πατέρα,
Or again, "I will be to him a father,
καὶ αὐτὸς ἔσται μοι εἰς υἱόν;
and he shall be to me a son"?
ὅταν δὲ πάλιν εἰσαγάγῃ τὸν πρωτότοκον εἰς τὴν οἰκουμένην,
And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world,
λέγει• καὶ προσκυνησάτωσαν αὐτῷ πάντες ἄγγελοι θεοῦ.
he says, "Let all God's angels worship him."
καὶ πρὸς μὲν τοὺς ἀγγέλους λέγει•
Of the angels he says,
ὁ ποιῶν τοὺς ἀγγέλους αὐτοῦ πνεύματα
"He makes his angels winds,
καὶ τοὺς λειτουργοὺς αὐτοῦ πυρὸς φλόγα,
and his ministers a flame of fire."
alternative
ideaexplanation
πρὸς δὲ τὸν υἱόν•
But of the Son he says,
ὁ θρόνος σου ὁ θεὸς εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος,
"Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
καὶ ἡ ῥάβδος τῆς εὐθύτητος ῥάβδος τῆς βασιλείας σου.
the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
ἠγάπησας δικαιοσύνην
You have loved righteousness
καὶ ἐμίσησας ἀνομίαν•
and hated wickedness;
series
διὰ τοῦτο ἔχρισέν σε ὁ θεὸς ὁ θεός σου ἔλαιον ἀγαλλιάσεως παρὰ τοὺς μετόχους σου.
therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions."
inference
καί• σὺ κατʼ ἀρχάς, κύριε, τὴν γῆν ἐθεμελίωσας,
And, "You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
καὶ ἔργα τῶν χειρῶν σού εἰσιν οἱ οὐρανοί•
and the heavens are the work of your hands;
αὐτοὶ ἀπολοῦνται,
they will perish,
σὺ δὲ διαμένεις,
but you remain;
καὶ πάντες ὡς ἱμάτιον παλαιωθήσονται,
they will all wear out like a garment,
καὶ ὡσεὶ περιβόλαιον ἑλίξεις αὐτούς,
like a robe you will roll them up,
ὡς ἱμάτιον καὶ ἀλλαγήσονται•
like a garment they will be changed.
σὺ δὲ ὁ αὐτὸς εἶ
But you are the same,
καὶ τὰ ἔτη σου οὐκ ἐκλείψουσιν.
and your years will have no end."
πρὸς τίνα δὲ τῶν ἀγγέλων εἴρηκέν ποτε•
And to which of the angels has he ever said,
κάθου ἐκ δεξιῶν μου,
"Sit at my right hand
ἕως ἂν θῶ τοὺς ἐχθρούς σου ὑποπόδιον τῶν ποδῶν σου;
until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet"?
οὐχὶ πάντες εἰσὶν λειτουργικὰ πνεύματα εἰς διακονίαν ἀποστελλόμενα διὰ τοὺς μέλλοντας κληρονομεῖν σωτηρίαν;
Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?
ground
actionresult
Διὰ τοῦτο δεῖ περισσοτέρως προσέχειν ἡμᾶς τοῖς ἀκουσθεῖσιν,
Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard,
μήποτε παραρυῶμεν.
lest we drift away from it.
actionpurpose
εἰ γὰρ ὁ διʼ ἀγγέλων λαληθεὶς λόγος ἐγένετο βέβαιος
For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable,
καὶ πᾶσα παράβασις καὶ παρακοὴ ἔλαβεν ἔνδικον μισθαποδοσίαν,
and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution,
πῶς ἡμεῖς ἐκφευξόμεθα
how shall we escape
τηλικαύτης ἀμελήσαντες σωτηρίας,
if we neglect such a great salvation?
conditional
ἥτις ἀρχὴν λαβοῦσα λαλεῖσθαι διὰ τοῦ κυρίου
It was declared at first by the Lord,
ὑπὸ τῶν ἀκουσάντων εἰς ἡμᾶς ἐβεβαιώθη,
and it was attested to us by those who heard,
συνεπιμαρτυροῦντος τοῦ θεοῦ σημείοις τε καὶ τέρασιν καὶ ποικίλαις δυνάμεσιν καὶ πνεύματος ἁγίου μερισμοῖς κατὰ τὴν αὐτοῦ θέλησιν;
while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.
