Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentHebrews 1:5
- Unto which (Tini).
- "To which individual angel." As a class angels are called sons of God (Elohim) (Psalms 29:1), but no single angel is called God's Son like the Messiah in Psalms 2:7. Dods takes "have I begotten thee" (gegennhka se, perfect active indicative of gennaw) to refer to the resurrection and ascension while others refer it to the incarnation.
- And again (kai palin).
- This quotation is from 2 Samuel 7:14. Note the use of eiv in the predicate with the sense of "as" like the Hebrew (LXX idiom), not preserved in the English. See Matthew 19:5; Luke 2:34. Like Old English "to" or "for." See 2 Corinthians 6:18; Revelation 21:7 for the same passage applied to relation between God and Christians while here it is treated as Messianic.
