ruling in the fear of God,
is like the light of morning,

For he has made with me an everlasting covenant,
ordered in all things and secure.
Will he not cause to prosper

for they cannot be picked up with the hand;
to touch them one uses and iron bar
or the shaft of a spear.
And they are entirely consumed in the fire on the spot.
~~David, King of Israel, d. 970 BC
