‎Several numerical radius inequalities for operator matrices are‎ ‎proved by generalizing earlier inequalities‎. ‎In particular‎, ‎the‎ ‎following inequalities are obtained‎: ‎if $n$ is even‎, ‎‎ \[2w(T) \leq \max\{\| A_1 \|‎, ‎\| A_2 \|,\ldots‎, ‎\| A_n \|\}+\frac{1}{2}\displaystyle\sum_{k=0}^{n-1} \|‎~ ‎|A_{n-k}|^{t}|A_{k+1}^{*}|^{1-t} \|,\] ‎and if $n$ is odd‎,‎‎ \[2w(T) \leq \max\{\| A_1 \|,\| A_2 \|,\ldots,\| A_n \|\}‎+ ‎w\bigg(\widetilde{A}_{(\frac{n+1}{2})t}\bigg)‎+ ‎\frac{1}{2}\displaystyle\sum_{k=0}^{n-1} \|‎~ ‎|A_{n-k}|^{t}|A_{k+1}^{*}|^{1-t} \|,\] ‎for all $t\in [0‎, ‎1]$‎, ‎$ A_i$'s are bounded linear operators on the‎ ‎Hilbert space $\mathcal{H}$‎, ‎and $T$ is off diagonal matrix with entries ‎$‎A_1, \cdots, A_n‎$‎.‎
