Hebrews 1

 

 1 At (1) sundry times and in divers manners God spake in the old time to our fathers by the Prophets, in these (a) last days he hath spoken unto us by his (b) Son,

 

(1) The first part of the general proposition of this Epistle; The Son of God is indeed that Prophet or teacher, which hath actually now performed that which God after a sort and in shadows signified by his prophets, and hath fully opened his Father's will to the world.

(a) So that the former declaration made by the Prophets was not full, and nothing must be added to this latter.
(b) Which one Son is God and man.

 

 2  (2) Whom he hath made (c) heir of all things, by whom also he made the (d) worlds,

 

(2) The second part of the same proposition: The same Son is appointed of the Father to be our King and Lord, by whom also he made all things, and in whom only he setteth forth his glory, yea and himself also to be beholden of us, who beareth up and sustaineth all things by his will and pleasure.
(c) Possessor and equal copartner of all things with the Father.
(d) That is, whatsoever hath been at any time, is, or shall be.

 

 3  (*) Who being the (e) brightness of the glory, and the engraved form of his (f) person, and (g) bearing up all things by his mighty word, (3) hath by himself purged our sins, and (h) sitteth at the right hand of the Majesty in the highest places,

 

(*) Colossians 1:14-15 .

(e) He in whom the glory and Majesty of the Father shineth, who is otherwise infinite, and cannot be beholden.
(f) His Father's person.
(g) Sustaineth, defendeth and cherisheth.
(3) The third part of the same proposition: The same Son executed the office of the high Priest in offering up himself, and is our only and most mighty Mediator in heaven.
(h) This sheweth that the savor of that his sacrifice is not only most acceptable to the Father, but also is everlasting, and furthermore how far this high Priest passeth all the other high Priests.

 

 4  (4) And is made so much more excellent than the Angels, in as much as he hath obtained a more excellent (i) Name than they.

 

(4) Before he cometh to declare the office of Christ, he setteth forth the excellency of his person, and first of all he sheweth him so to be man, and that therewithal he is God also.
(i) Dignity and honor.

 

 5  (5) For unto which of the Angels said he at any time, (*) Thou art my Son, (k) this day begat I thee? (6) And again, I (♣) will be his Father, and he shall be my Son;

 

(5) He proveth and confirmeth the divinity of Christ manifested in the flesh by these six evident testimonies, whereby it appeareth that he far passeth all Angels, in so much that he is called both Son, and God in Hebrews 1:5,6,7,8,10,13 .

(*) Psalm 2:7; Acts 13:33; Hebrews 5:5 .
(k) The Father begat the Son from everlasting, but that everlasting generation was made manifest and represented to the world in his time, and therefore he addeth this word (Today.)
(6) He proveth and confirmeth the divinity of Christ manifested in the flesh by these six evident testimonies, whereby it appeareth that he far passeth all Angels, in so much that he is called both Son, and God in Hebrews 1:5,6,7,8,10,13 .

 (♣) 2 Samuel 7:14; 2 Chronicles 22:10 .

 

 6  (7) And (l) again, when he bringeth in his first begotten Son into the world, he saith, (*) And let all the Angels of God worship him.

 

(7) He proveth and confirmeth the divinity of Christ manifested in the flesh by these six evident testimonies, whereby it appeareth that he far passeth all Angels, in so much that he is called both Son, and God in Hebrews 1:5,6,7,8,10,13 .
(l) The Lord was not content to have spoken it once, but he repeateth it in another place.

(*) Psalm 97:7 .

 

 7  (8) And of the Angels he saith, (*) He maketh the (♣) spirits his (m) messengers, and his ministers a flame (n) of fire.

 

(8) He proveth and confirmeth the divinity of Christ manifested in the flesh by these six evident testimonies, whereby it appeareth that he far passeth all Angels, in so much that he is called both Son, and God in Hebrews 1:5,6,7,8,10,13 .

(*) Psalm 104:4 .

(♣) He compareth the Angels to the winds, which are here being Godís messengers.
(m) Cherub, Psalm 18:10 .
(n) Seraph, Isaiah 6:2 .

 

 8 But unto the Son he saith, (*) O God, thy (o) throne is forever (p) and ever, the scepter of thy kingdom is a (q) scepter of righteousness.

 

(*) Psalm 45:6 .

(o) The throne is proper to the Prince, and not for servant.
(p) For everlasting, for this doubling of the word increaseth the significance of it beyond all measure.
(q) The government of thy kingdom is righteous.

 

 9 Thou hast loved righteousness and (r) hated iniquity. Wherefore God, even thy God, hath (s) anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy (t) fellows.

 

(r) This type of rehearsing which the Jews use by contraries, hath great force in it.
(s) In that, that the word became flesh, by pouring the holy Ghost upon him without measure.
(t) For he is the head and we are his members.

 

 10  (9) And, (*) Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast (u) established the earth, and the heavens are the works of thine hands.

 

(9) He proveth and confirmeth the divinity of Christ manifested in the flesh by these six evident testimonies, whereby it appeareth that he far passeth all Angels, in so much that he is called both Son, and God in Hebrews 1:5,6,7,8,10,13 .
(*) Psalm 102:25 .
(u) Madest the earth firm and sure.

 

 11 They shall perish, but thou doest remain, and they all shall wax old as doeth a garment;

 

 12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed. But thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

 

 13  (10) Unto which also of the Angels said he at any time, (*) Sit at my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

 

(10) He proveth and confirmeth the divinity of Christ manifested in the flesh by these six evident testimonies, whereby it appeareth that he far passeth all Angels, in so much that he is called both Son, and God in Hebrews 1:5,6,7,8,10,13 .

(*) Psalm 110:1; Matthew 22:44; 1 Corinthians 15:25; Hebrews 10:12 .

 

 14 Are they not all (x) ministering spirits, sent forth to minister, for their sakes which shall be heirs of salvation?

 

(x) By that name by which we commonly call Princes messengers, he here calleth the spirits.
