2 Samuel 23: 1-7

The Last Words of David

23Now these are the last words of David:
The oracle of David, son of Jesse,
   the oracle of the man whom God exalted,*
the anointed of the God of Jacob,
   the favourite of the Strong One of Israel:


2 The spirit of the Lord speaks through me,
   his word is upon my tongue.
3 The God of Israel has spoken,
   the Rock of Israel has said to me:
One who rules over people justly,
   ruling in the fear of God,
4 is like the light of morning,
   like the sun rising on a cloudless morning,
   gleaming from the rain on the grassy land.


5 Is not my house like this with God?
   For he has made with me an everlasting covenant,
   ordered in all things and secure.
Will he not cause to prosper
   all my help and my desire?
6 But the godless are* all like thorns that are thrown away;
   for they cannot be picked up with the hand;
7 to touch them one uses an iron bar
   or the shaft of a spear.
   And they are entirely consumed in fire on the spot.*

Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14

Judgement before the Ancient One


9 As I watched,
thrones were set in place,
   and an Ancient One* took his throne;
his clothing was white as snow,
   and the hair of his head like pure wool;
his throne was fiery flames,
   and its wheels were burning fire.
10 A stream of fire issued
   and flowed out from his presence.
A thousand thousand served him,
   and ten thousand times ten thousand stood attending him.
The court sat in judgement,
   and the books were opened. 13As I watched in the night visions,
I saw one like a human being*
   coming with the clouds of heaven.
And he came to the Ancient One*
   and was presented before him.
14 To him was given dominion
   and glory and kingship,
that all peoples, nations, and languages
   should serve him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
   that shall not pass away,
and his kingship is one
   that shall never be destroyed.

Psalm 132

1  Lord, remember for David 
   all the hardships he endured;
2  How he swore an oath to the Lord 
   and vowed a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
3  ‘I will not come within the shelter of my house, 
   nor climb up into my bed;
4  ‘I will not allow my eyes to sleep, 
   nor let my eyelids slumber,
5  ‘Until I find a place for the Lord, 
   a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.’
6  Now, we heard of the ark in Ephrathah 
   and found it in the fields of Ja-ar.
7  Let us enter his dwelling place 
   and fall low before his footstool.
8  Arise, O Lord, into your resting place, 
   you and the ark of your strength.
9  Let your priests be clothed with righteousness 
   and your faithful ones sing with joy.
10  For your servant David’s sake, 
   turn not away the face of your anointed.
11  The Lord has sworn an oath to David, 
   a promise from which he will not shrink:
12  ‘Of the fruit of your body 
   shall I set upon your throne.
13  ‘If your children keep my covenant
      and my testimonies that I shall teach them, 
   their children also shall sit upon your throne for evermore.’
14  For the Lord has chosen Zion for himself; 
   he has desired her for his habitation:
15  ‘This shall be my resting place for ever; 
   here will I dwell, for I have longed for her.
16  ‘I will abundantly bless her provision; 
   her poor will I satisfy with bread.
17  ‘I will clothe her priests with salvation, 
   and her faithful ones shall rejoice and sing.
18  ‘There will I make a horn to spring up for David; 
   I will keep a lantern burning for my anointed.

Psalm 93

The Majesty of God’s Rule


1 The Lord is king, he is robed in majesty;
   the Lord is robed, he is girded with strength.
He has established the world; it shall never be moved;
2   your throne is established from of old;
   you are from everlasting.


3 The floods have lifted up, O Lord,
   the floods have lifted up their voice;
   the floods lift up their roaring.
4 More majestic than the thunders of mighty waters,
   more majestic than the waves* of the sea,
   majestic on high is the Lord!


5 Your decrees are very sure;
   holiness befits your house,
   O Lord, for evermore.

Revelation 1: 4b-8

4 John to the seven churches that are in Asia:

Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, 5and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.

To him who loves us and freed* us from our sins by his blood, 6and made* us to be a kingdom, priests serving* his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
7 Look! He is coming with the clouds;
   every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him;
   and on his account all the tribes of the earth will wail.
So it is to be. Amen.

8 ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega’, says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

John 18: 33-37

33 Then Pilate entered the headquarters* again, summoned Jesus, and asked him, ‘Are you the King of the Jews?’ 34Jesus answered, ‘Do you ask this on your own, or did others tell you about me?’ 35Pilate replied, ‘I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?’ 36Jesus answered, ‘My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.’ 37Pilate asked him, ‘So you are a king?’ Jesus answered, ‘You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.’
