In Psalm 45, the person who is spoken of is the Messiah, as is interpreted by several Jewish writers:

-------------------

The Targum interprets Ps 45:2 of the King Messiah;

-------------------

Abraham ben Meir ibn Ezra (also known as Abenezra) (1092 or 10931167)

Aben Ezra observes, that this psalm is said concerning David, or concerning the Messiah his son, for so is his name, Eze 37:26;

-------------------

Rabbi David Kimchi (1160 1235), also known by the Hebrew acronym as the RaDaK

-------------------

Rabbi Yitzchak Arama - (1420-1494)

Arama affirms, that all agree that it treats of him. (Messiah)

Paul says:

Heb. 1

[1] God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
[2] Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
[3] Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
[4] Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
[5] For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? ( never said this to a angel, but said it the Messiah, His Word made flesh) And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

Pss. 2 [7] I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me (Messiah), Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

 

Back to Heb. 1

[6] And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

Luke. 2 [9] And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
[10] And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
[11] For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Messiah the Lord.
[12] And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

[13] And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,[14] Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

 

Back to Heb. 1

[7] And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

Pss.104 [4] Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

 

Back to Heb. 1

[8] But unto the Son (Messiah) he saith,

Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom

[9] Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Psalms 45 [6] Thy throne, O God, (Messiah) is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

[7] Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee (Messiah) with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Shalom
