But concerning the Son, "Your throne O G-d is forever and ever." (Hebrews 1:8)

The Trinitarian Claim

Trinitarians claim G-d the Father [Yahuwah] addresses Yahushua as "G-d" in this verse.

The Claim vs. The Facts

The facts show that the Trinitarian interpretation and translation is impossible and the writer is rather describing how the exalted Yahushua now has the authority of G-d's [Yahuwah's] throne.

The Problems with the Trinitarian Claim

Hebrews 1:8 is a quotation of Psalm 45:6. The above translation of Hebrews 1:8 is another example of Trinitarian translation bias. Here they outrageously try to claim that G-d the Father [Yahuwah] is addressing Yahushua as "O G-d." This translation crudely violates the context for the sake of Trinitarian tradition.

1. The Greek Grammar and Intentional Translation Bias

Concerning Hebrews 1:8, Trinitarian apologists are somewhat pretentious and would have you believe their "O G-d" translation is the only possible translation. So they always cherry pick the vocative "O G-d" translation for their apologetic agenda.* However, Trinitarian Greek translation scholars openly admit the Greek grammar does indeed allow for a different translation. Trinitarian scholars admit that "G-d is your throne (or Your throne is G-d) is grammatically correct (see Robertson or Westcott for example). Some of these scholars also concede that it makes theological sense. This is also evidenced by a review of various major translations. The RSV translates Psalm 45:6 as "Your divine throne endures forever and ever." The NRSV footnote for Psalm 45:6 reads, "Your throne is a throne of G-d" and the Hebrews 1:8 footnote reads, "G-d is your throne."

(Note: * Some grammarians have even argued that the vocative is an artificial category created by translators. In other words, they argue that it is a category which is an English speaking convention which would have never been conceived in a Koine Greek speaker's mind.)

The word "throne" in Scripture

With the exception of a few informed scholars, Trinitarians generally seem to dismiss the "G-d is your throne," or "Your throne is G-d," translation because they can't imagine how G-d could be Yahushua Christ's throne. Some even conclude this is silly because, they object, it would have G-d being used as Yahushua's chair (throne). However, the ignorance is actually their own. The problem is that they are equating the word "throne" with a chair to sit upon. This notion comes from ignorance concerning the use of the word "throne" in the Scripture.


To claim that Yahushua is being called "G-d" at Hebrews 1:8 is to also claim Solomon is being called "G-d" at Psalm 45:6. That just isn't going to make any sense. Or perhaps we should add Solomon to the Trinity and end up with a Quadrinity? The honest person will see the seriousness of the problem here.

"Dual" Prophecy

Like many Psalms, this refers to both the ancient Davidic King and the Messiah. This is common in Scripture and this type of thing is commonly called "dual prophecy" with a "near and far fulfillment." Yahuwah's promise to David at 2 Samuel 7:11-14 is said in Scripture to be fulfilled in Solomon as well as Yahushua. Isaiah 7:14 was necessarily fulfilled in the days of King Ahaz, as a sign to Ahaz, but was also fulfilled when Yahushua was born. Isaiah 42:1ff. is obviously referring to Israel but Matthew applies the verse to Yahushua (because he is the King of the Jews). Hosea 11:1 was fulfilled in both Israel and Yahushua. These are but a few of several examples.


3. Yahuwah's G-d

A very serious problem with the Trinitarian translation is the resulting implications of their translation.

"But to the Son, [G-d] says, Your throne, 'O G-d, is forever and ever. The sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of your kingdom/kingship. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; therefore G-d, your G-d, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your partners.'" (Hebrews 1:8-9)

The result of this translation is that G-d [Yahuwah] has a G-d and G-d's G-d anoints G-d so that G-d's G-d would make G-d to be above G-d's peers.

It's unbelievably ludicrous in multiple ways!!


6. Yahuwah is your throne

Trinitarian apologists have illustrated their ignorance here many times. It is not uncommon to see them mocking people like JW's and their Watchtower translation by supposing it means Yahushua's throne is G-d [Yahuwah] and Yahushua therefore sits on G-d [Yahuwah]. The Trinitarian ignorance here is stunning. Regard the following verse for example:

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord G-d [Yahuwah] will give him the throne of his father David. Luke 1:32

Do Trinitarians also conclude that Yahuwah will give David's fancy King chair to Yahushua? This illustrates how ridiculous they are at Hebrews 1:8. The word "throne" refers to Kingly authority. David was King of Israel and Yahushua will be given the Kingly authority over Israel that David had.

The words "G-d is your throne" or "Your throne is G-d" mean that Yahushua Christ's authority is the Kingly authority of Yahuwah. He executes G-d the Father's [Yahuwah's] authority. David sat on the throne of Yahuwah over the Kingdom of Yahuwah (1 Chronicles 28:5; 29:23). For that reason, all Israel bowed down and worshiped Yahuwah and King David (1 Chronicles 29:20). This means that David executed Yahuwah's authority on Yahuwah's behalf much like Joseph ruling on behalf of Pharaoh. This is also what is happening at Psalm 45:6-7 where the Psalmist is speaking to the Davidic King on his wedding day. He sits on the throne of Yahuwah, the G-d of Israel. And that is what the language of Hebrews 1:8 means. "Your throne is G-d" means that he has been given the Kingly authority of Yahuwah, his G-d.


When all the facts are laid out before us, the truth of the matter is plain and it should be evident to the reasonable mind that the weight of the evidence is heavily against the Trinitarian translation. The Trinitarian translation not only results in an absurd statement concerning Yahuwah's G-d, it results in an ancient Davidic King (Ps 45) who lived long before Yahushua being called "G-d." Trinitarians inconsistently translate ho theos at 1:8-9 and the implications are that G-d [Yahuwah] has a G-d and G-d's G-d anoints G-d so that G-d will make G-d to be above G-d's peers. It's ridiculous on the face of it.

However, when we understand how Scripture uses the word "throne" to refer to Kingly authority, and when we understand that the Davidic King, whether David or Yahushua, was anointed by Yahuwah in His Holy Spirit to rule and judge, the verdict is clear and undeniable. The Davidic King's, throne, his Kingly authority to rule, is Yahuwah Himself who rules and judges through his human King because He has anointed that King by His Spirit to do so (i.e. "G-d is your throne"). His Kingly authority is G-d [Yahuwah], his throne is G-d [Yahuwah]. He executes the authority of G-d's [Yahuwah's] throne, that is, the Davidic King executes his G-d's authority and he is anointed to do so by the Holy Spirit of G-d [Yahuwah]. The Kingly authority by which he rules is the authority/throne of Yahuwah Himself. This Kingly authority means that the King's judgments are thereby Yahuwah's judgment because Yahuwah has given the King this authority to make these judgements. Hence it says, "Your throne ho theos." Moreover, the manuscript evidence strongly suggests the verse is not only referring to the Father's throne but to "His Kingdom." Since Yahuwah's throne signifies His Kingdom authority, the verdict concerning this verse should be clear.

Give the King Your judgments, ho theos, and Your righteousness to the King’s son. May he judge Your people with righteousness and Your afflicted with justice. Psalm 72:1-3

But concerning the son, "G-d is your throne... the scepter of HIS Kingdom." Heb 1:8

I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. Revelation 3:21
