1 A Song of degrees. Yahweh, remember David, and all his afflictions:

2 How he sware unto Yahweh, and vowed unto the mighty Elohim of Jacob;

3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;

4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,

5 Until I find out a place for Yahweh, an habitation for the mighty Elohim of Jacob.

6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.

7 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.

8 Arise, O Yahweh, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.

9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.

10 For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.

11 Yahweh hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

12 If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.



13 For Yahweh hath chosen Zion [Tziyon]; He hath desired it for his habitation [ her for His moshav].

14 This is my rest [My menuchah (resting place)] for ever [adei-ad (forever)]: here will I dwell; for I have desired it [her.]

.

We may remark here that ad is a remoter period than olahm. Ad does not arrive till olahm has passed away. It is an indefinite series of ages beyond the thousand years of Messiah's Aion. David's throne is for this period, styled in Daniel, "a season and a time."

Olahm ends where Ad begins; so that "until Ad" is to the end of Olahm. Paul refers to this when he says, in 1 Cor. 15:24:

"Then cometh the END when he, Christ, shall have delivered up the kingdom to God even the Father ... that God may be all things in all men".

This is what obtains beyond olahm, or in Ad. When the end of Olahm touches the beginning of Ad, a change in mundane affairs again ensues. It is the epoch of the crushing of the serpent's head, which occurs 1,000 years after his being bound.

"The Son of God reigns until He (the Eternal Spirit) hath put all enemies under his feet."

This is Paul's testimony; and that "until" is the "until Ad" of Psalm 132:12, 14. When "all enemies" are destroyed, there will be no occasion for any more reigning; for to continue a reign after the last enemy is destroyed, and God is "all things in all," would be for God to reign over Himself, which is absurd'.

FROM PHANEROSIS - 'The First Principle: God Is One'



15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.

16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

17 There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.

18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
