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

  • Flames of Fire
    He made his angles spirits and his ministers flames of fire. Are your ministets truth tellers or fund raisers? Do you long for righteosness or pretend your already saved. Misinterpreters of scripure or learners precept by precept, a little here a little there. Do you feign rapture or deal with the Heart of the matter, without pretence. My experience with todays Christians. Dig it?

    repent emmilyon and bow to the lordship of jesus christ for your salvation,you
    are a doubting thomas or maybe in some false religion or cult
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Amen, God and Father of Jesus turned the show over to his Son Jesus in Hebrews 1:1-4. What Christians of the hour get bewitched and stumble at is verse 8. They do not read verse 9. Verse 8 is the fulfilling of Isaiah 6:9. "His name shall be called the mighty God" NOT "My name" NOT the Almighty God and Father the mighty God all power was passed from Father to Son. Pronouns =hishehim VS Imemy

    Hebrews 1:13 - But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? (Believe it and Receive it Brethren right now in Jesus name)
  • Tammy Shelton
    I enjoyed Hebrews chapter 1. Because our bible study class starts reading
  • A disciple
    "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!
