Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 1:8


1:8 O God - God, in the singular number, is never in scripture used absolutely of any but the supreme God. Thy reign, of which the sceptre is the ensign, is full of justice and equity. #Psa 45:6|,7.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 1:8


Heb 1:8 But to the Son he saith. The quotation is from Ps 45:6. Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever. Then the Son has an eternal throne, and is divine. A sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. He then has a kingdom, and rules it with a righteous scepter. The point is that he is a Divine King with an eternal throne.

Discussion for Hebrews 1

    "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?" Yet for every Scripture which plainly says one thing; they refuse to receive correction; but rather hold fast deceit; as it is written, "..the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people.." condemned of themselves!

    I never read that Lord Jesus said that He is God. He had been saying My Father. So I concluded that He is s true Man and God gave him a special power to redeem us. But deep in my heart I am not really happy. So I prayed that God give an answer to my question. Suddenly I read the Hebrews 1. I have always encountered this chapter but never understood the deep meaning. Thanks God for the answer. Amen

    Snoopy "but not really the same as the Father,but that he was created by the Father" Are you referring to Paul in this statement or Jesus?
