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.
