Hebrews 1:9

You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.” Hebrews 1:9

The words of this verse are found in Psalm 45:7 –

“You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”

Two things bear on the first words of the verse, as cited in Hebrews.Read the rest

Hebrews 1:8

But to the Son He says:
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of righteousness 
is the scepter of Your kingdom. Hebrews 1:8

The contrast between the angels of 1:7 and the Son in 1:8 is now made. This is evidenced in the words “But to the Son He says.” God was speaking of (or to – the preposition in both verses can mean either) the angels in verse 7, describing their purposes as directed by Him.Read the rest

Hebrews 1:7

And of the angels He says:
Who makes His angels spirits
And His ministers a flame of fire.”
Hebrews 1:7

Our author here once again paints a contrast between angels and the Son. In this, he begins with, “And of the angels He says.” The words are to be contrasted with what will be said in the next verse, “But to the Son He says.” This second set of contrasts is given to show that not just an isolated thought about the superiority of the Son was pulled out of Scripture, but that it is a consistent theme which can be found and relied upon.Read the rest

Hebrews 1:6

But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says:
Let all the angels of God worship Him.” Hebrews 1:6

The words of this verse are incorrectly translated by some versions by saying something like, “And again, when he brings in the first-begotten into the world…” In the Greek, the word “brings” is tied to “again.” It is not a supplementary statement to the previous verse.Read the rest

Hebrews 1:5

For to which of the angels did He ever say:
“You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You”?
And again:
“I will be to Him a Father,
And He shall be to Me a Son”? Hebrews 1:5

The author now goes from his statement that Christ is “so much better than the angels” to a demonstration of this by asking rhetorical questions.Read the rest
