Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 1:6


1:6 And again - That is, in another scripture. He - God. Saith, when he bringeth in his first - begotten - This appellation includes that of Son, together with the rights of primogeniture, which the first - begotten Son of God enjoys, in a manner not communicable to any creature. Into the world - Namely, at his incarnation. He saith, Let all the angels of God worship him - So much higher was he, when in his lowest estate, than the highest angel. #Psa 97:7|.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 1:6


Heb 1:6 When he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world. Macknight thinks that Christ was brought into the world the first time when he was born at Bethlehem; that the time referred to here is when he comes again to judge the world. And let all the angels of God worship him. Whatever the time referred to, his superiority to the angels is shown in Ps 97:7.

Discussion for Hebrews 1:6

  • I think this is referring to Psalms 2:7 and is speaking of the glorification of Jesus (ref. Matthew 28:18) where all power in heaven and earth is given unto Jesus after His resurrection and glorification. In Luke chapter two the angels are praising God and they are not worshiping the newborn Son of man. They prophetically describe him as "Christ the Lord" but the angels do not worship the Son of man. Paul also connects Psalms 2:7 with the resurrection (Acts 13:33) and not with the Bethlehemic birth.
