Jesus worshiped (Jesus is NOT an angel)
The 1961 edition of the NWT translates the Greek word proskuneo as worship, but in the 1971 edition changes the translation to read obeisance (to honor, give homage).
If Jesus is a created being that should not be worshiped, then the Father sinned (which is impossible) by commanding the angels to worship a mere creature. If Jesus was an angel, then the angels were commanded to worship one of their own.
Worship is to God alone. (Ex 34:14; Matt 4:10)
**NOTE: read Rev 22:8,9 in the Kingdom Interlinear Translation (NWT) where proskuneo is used in the original Greek. An angel told John not to worship (proskuneo) him. This worship the angel refused is the same worship the Father commanded to be given to Jesus.
Unclean spirits bowed down to Jesus and addressed him as the “Son of God.”
The Son is not an angel.

1879 "His position is contrasted with men and angels, as he is Lord of both, having 'all power in heaven and earth'. Hence it is said, 'Let all of the angels of God worship him' [that must included Michael, the chief angel, hence Michael is not the Son of God] and the reason is, because he has 'by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they."' (C.T. Russell, Watchtower Nov. 1879, bracketed comment in the original)
1880 "He was the object of unreproved worship even when a babe, by the wise men who came to see the new-born king... He never reproved any for acts of worship offered to Himself... Had Christ not been more than man the same reason would have prevented Him from receiving worship." (Watchtower Reprints, 1, Oct., 1880, p. 144).
1898 "Question... Was he really worshipped, or is the translation faulty? Answer. Yes, we believe our Lord while on earth was really worshipped, and properly so... It was proper for our Lord to receive worship... " (Watchtower Reprints, 111, July 15, 1898, p. 2337).
1915 "As the special messenger of the Covenant, whom the Father had sanctified and sent into the world to redeem the world, and whom the Father honored in every manner, testifying, ‘This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased' - it was eminently proper that all who beheld his glory, as the glory of an Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth, should reverence him, hear him, obey him, and worship him - do him homage - as the representative of the Father." (At-One-Ment Between God And Man, 1899; 1915 ed.; p. 134)
1945 "Since Jehovah God now reigns as King by means of his capital organization Zion, then whosoever would worship him must also bow down to Jehovah's Chief One in that organization, namely Christ Jesus, his co-regent on the throne of The Theocracy." (Watchtower, Oct 15, 1945)
1945 "The purposes of this Society are:... public Christian worship of Almighty God and Jesus Christ; to arrange for and hold local and world-wide assemblies for such worship... " (Charter of the Watchtower Society of Pennsylvania, Article II, Feb 27, 1945 [the 1969 Yearbook quotes Article II of the Charter, "and for public Christian worship of Almighty God ..." leaving off the original requirement to worship Jesus])
1970 "But when He again brings his First-born into the inhabited earth, he says: 'And let all
God's angels worship him' Hebrews 1:6." (New World Translation, 1950, 196 1, 1970 editions, [The NWT revised 1971 edition was changed to read, "do obeisance to" rather than "worship"])
"Question: The fact that our Lord received worship is claimed by some to be an evidence that while on earth he was God the Father disguised in a body of flesh and not really a man. Was he really worshiped, or is the translation faulty? Answer: Yes, we believe our Lord Jesus while on earth was really worshiped, and properly so... It was proper for our Lord to receive worship in view of his having been the only begotten of the Father, and his agent in the creation of all things, including man." (The Watchtower, 7/15/1898, page 216.)

, "For example, to which one of the angels did he ever say: 'You are my Son; today I have become your Father'? And again: 'I shall be a Father to him, and he will be a Son to me'? But when he again brings his Firstborn into the inhabited earth, he says: 'And let all God's angels worship him."'
