I understand Heb. 1:8 to be a subject nominative. In the context of
Psalm 45, the king of Judah is being addressed. If the passage were to
be construed as a vocative or nominative of address, then the king of
Judah would be equated with YHWH. While it is possible that a king
could be called ELOHIM in the OT, it seems best to construe Heb. 1:8 as
"God is your throne."
