This was prompted by a comment on my answer to "Does Jesus refer to aliens in John 10:16?"

@Jon Thanks for the +1 - I had a sort of comment on whether Jesus meant Gentiles here, but it turned into a question of its own.

comment What hermeneutical approach does Hebrews use on the Old Testament
I think in some places certainly the NT authors may have used OT language the way we might use Shakespeare or another author today--not necessarily as proof of our assertions, but as familiar language to couch them in. (Probably not in this case, though.)

comment What hermeneutical approach does Hebrews use on the Old Testament
I'm not sure I understand the discrepancy you're seeing here; to me it looks like the statements are not inconsistent. If Psalm 2 is about the king God appointed, and calls that king his son, what is wrong with saying in one place that he was appointed by God, and in another place that that he is God's son? Can you clarify?

comment Synthesizing Differing Translations of Proverbs 18:24
I suppose the KJV only looks like 'in order to have friends, one must be friendly' -- in the plain language of it though, if a man who has friends must show himself friendly, presumably there's a reason why he must and a consequence of what happens if he doesn't. (Presumably, offending any could cause them all to turn against you--except perhaps those 'sticking closer than a brother'.)
