Bible Commentary

Psalm 45:6 is a Bible verse from a popular Psalm, which King David wrote as a love song to celebrate the king’s marriage, which symbolizes the marriage between Christ and the church, the bride of Christ.

It is very interesting that the word “throne” in Hebrew means: properly covered, a throne as canopied; seat.

A canopy is used as an overhead covering as protection from mosquitos and other pests, and from the heat of the sun.

The “throne” of God infers a royal authority as it is spoken of in Psalm 45:6, yet it is softened with the meaning of “covering” or “protection.”

We should recognize God as sovereign in our lives and yield to His authority, but we can also know Him as a loving Father Who protects us forever. His throne does not end.

The word “scepter” in Psalm 45:6 is defined as: a staff or wand carried as the badge of command or sovereignty; kingly office or power.

Scepter

The scepter of God’s kingdom has a particular order—He is King and we submit to Him as such, believing He has our good in mind, protecting us from the evil in the world.

However, if we do not yield to Him as King, but instead rebel and seek after other gods, we give up the protection, the covering of our Heavenly Father—a very dangerous place to be in these last days (end times).

Unlocking the Truth - Kingdom of God

This is the order God established in His relationship with His people. He is first; we are second.

Ephesians 5:23 says, “For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.”

Just as Adam’s body covered the rib which God used to create Eve, so our Husband—God—covers us, His bride. We are secure under His covering—His leadership, protection and provision.

This is the established order of the Kingdom of God, His original design and intention for mankind. It was lost when man sinned, but Jesus Christ came to restore the Kingdom of God by reconciling mankind back to the Father.

In Psalm 45:6, the word “uprightness” in Hebrew means: level, straightness, justice. Even when we are being disciplined by God, He doesn’t rebuke us and leave us there.

He gives us understanding as to why we behave the way we do, why we feel the way we do, and then He leads us to Him, gently to health, peace and wholeness--righteousness.

He leads with the strength and authority of a sovereign God, but He loves, heals and comforts us like a loving Father.

Psalm 89:14 says, “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before You.”

Another word for “kingdom” in Psalm 45:6 in Hebrew is “dominion.”

This is the order of the Kingdom of God that He desires for each of us who choose Him, believe Him. He uses righteousness and justice to correct us, and His tender mercy and love to forgive us.

Then He gathers us into the Kingdom of God, His dominion, to live forever with Him.
