    THROUGH GODS CHOSEN PEOPLE, ISRAEL,

    AND THEIR ETERNAL KING IN DAVIDS LINE,

    WHO WILL RESTORE THE DIVINE LAW OF LOVE.

  • Psalm 132 10-18

    Think of thy servant David, and do not refuse audience to the king thou hast anointed.

    Never will the Lord be false to that inviolable oath he swore to David: I will raise to thy throne heirs of thy own body;

    if thy sons hold fast to my covenant, to the decrees which I make known to them, their sons too shall reign on thy throne for ever.

    The Lords choice has fallen upon Sion, this is the dwelling he longed for:

    Here, for ever, is my resting-place, here is my destined home.

    Trust me, I will bless her with abundant store, the poor shall have bread to their hearts content;

    I will clothe her priests in the vesture of triumph, cries of rejoicing shall echo among her faithful people.

    There the stock of David shall bud, there shall a lamp burn continually for the king I have anointed.

    I will cover his enemies with confusion; on his brow the crown I gave shall shine untarnished.
