Does the Bible ever refer to Jesus Christ as "God"?

Does the Bible ever refer to Jesus Christ as “God”?

I believe Jesus Christ is God and that He is also called God in the Bible. Hebrews 1:8 is always my first choice as the proof of this. Heb. 1:8 says, "But unto the Son He saith, 'Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever. A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Thy kingdom.'" (KJV
But when I looked it up online, I see a Unitarian disagrees with me. You can find his article under my title:

Does the Bible ever refer to Jesus Christ as “God ...

The Unitarian counters: "Verse 8 clarifies that Psalm 45:6 and 7 are a Messianic prophecy, but the translators once again mis-capitalize “god” as “God.” But look at verse 9! It says, “…therefore God, even your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” Say, if one is God, how can anyone else be his “God”? That should be a more frequently asked question!"

Hebrews 1:8

ESV - 8 But of the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
