Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 1:6

_ _ AndGreek, “But.” Not only this proves His superiority, BUT a more decisive proof is Psalms 97:7, which shows that not only at His resurrection, but also in prospect of His being brought into the world (compare Hebrews 9:11; Hebrews 10:5) as man, in His incarnation, nativity (Luke 2:9-14), temptation (Matthew 4:10, Matthew 4:11), resurrection (Matthew 28:2), and future second advent in glory, angels were designed by God to be subject to Him. Compare 1 Timothy 3:16, “seen of angels”; God manifesting Messiah as one to be gazed at with adoring love by heavenly intelligences (Ephesians 3:10; 2 Thessalonians 1:9, 2 Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Peter 3:22). The fullest realization of His Lordship shall be at His second coming (Psalms 97:7; 1 Corinthians 15:24, 1 Corinthians 15:25; Philippians 2:9). “Worship Him all ye gods” (“gods,” that is, exalted beings, as angels), refers to God; but it was universally admitted among the Hebrews that God would dwell, in a peculiar sense, in Messiah (so as to be in the Talmud phrase, “capable of being pointed to with the finger”); and so what was said of God was true of, and to be fulfilled in, Messiah. Kimchi says that the ninety-third through the hundred first Psalms contain in them the mystery of Messiah. God ruled the theocracy in and through Him.

_ _ the world — subject to Christ (Hebrews 2:5). As “the first-begotten” He has the rights of primogeniture (Romans 8:29); Colossians 1:15, Colossians 1:16, Colossians 1:18). In Deuteronomy 32:43, the Septuagint has, “Let all the angels of God worship Him,” words not now found in the Hebrew. This passage of the Septuagint may have been in Paul’s mind as to the form, but the substance is taken from Psalms 97:7. The type David, in the Psalms 89:27 (quoted in Hebrews 1:5), is called “God’s first-born, higher than the kings of the earth”; so the antitypical first-begotten, the son of David, is to be worshipped by all inferior lords, such as angels (“gods,” Psalms 97:7); for He is “King of kings and Lord of lords” (Revelation 19:16). In the Greek, “again” is transposed; but this does not oblige us, as Alford thinks, to translate, “when He again shall have introduced,” etc., namely, at Christ’s second coming; for there is no previous mention of a first bringing in; and “again” is often used in quotations, not to be joined with the verb, but parenthetically (“that I may again quote Scripture”). English Version is correct (compare Matthew 5:33; Greek, John 12:39).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 1:6

And again — That is, in another scripture. He — God. Saith, when he bringeth in his first — begotten — This appellation includes that of Son, together with the rights of primogeniture, which the first — begotten Son of God enjoys, in a manner not communicable to any creature. Into the world — Namely, at his incarnation. He saith, Let all the angels of God worship him — So much higher was he, when in his lowest estate, than the highest angel. Psalms 97:7.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 1:6

(7) And (l) again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

(7) He proves and confirms the dignity of Christ revealed in the flesh, by these six evident testimonies by which it appears that he far surpasses all angels, so much so that he is called both Son, and God in (Hebrews 1:5-8, Hebrews 1:10, Hebrews 1:13).

(l) The Lord was not content to have spoken it once, but he repeats it in another place.
