Concerning the Blessings of Kings | Kebra Nagast The glory of the Kings
These are the words concerning the blessings of kings, from the Kebra Nagast. Here we will take a look at why, David’s Monarchy in Ethiopia is so blessed.
Concerning The Blessings of Kings
“Hearken thou now to the blessing that shall come upon thee, if thou wilt do the Will of Elohim. David shall be blessed in all thy ways.
Blessed shalt thou be in the city, blessed shall thou be in the field, blessed shall thou be in thy house, blessed shalt thou be outside it, and blessed shall be the fruit of thy belly.
And those who were gathered together said, Amen. Blessed shall be the fruit of the land. Amen. Blessed shall be the fountains of thy water. Amen. And Blessed shall be the fruit that thou hast planted. Amen.
Blessed shall be thy cattle-runs and the flocks of thy sheep. Amen. Blessed shall be thy granaries and thy barns. Amen. And Blessed shalt thou be in thy coming in. Amen. And Blessed shalt thou be in thy going forth. Amen.”
“Elohim shall bring to thee thine enemies who have risen up against thee, and they shall be trodden small beneath thy feet. Amen. And Elohim shall send His blessing on thy houses and on everything to which thou hast put thine hand. Amen.
Elohim shall multiply for thee good things, namely, children of thy body, produce of thy land, and births among thy flocks and herds. Amen. And in the land which He swore [to give to] thy fathers, He will give thee according to the days of heaven. Amen.
And Elohim shall open for thee the storehouse of the blessings of the heavens and He shall give thee blessed rain, and shall bless the fruit of thy labour. Amen.
Thou shalt lend unto many peoples, but thou shalt not borrow. Amen. Thou shalt rule over many nations, but they shall not rule over thee. Amen.
The glory given to David’s bloodline
And Elohim shall set thee at the head and not at the tail, and thou shalt be at the top and not at the bottom. Amen. Also thou shalt gather together of every blessing of the land for thy flocks and herds.
And thou shalt take the spoil of the nations for thine army, and they shall bow down to thee to the face of the earth, to thy sovereignty, because of the greatness of thy glory.
Thine honour shall rise up like the cedar, and like the Morning Star, the brilliance of thy glory shall be before all the nations of the earth, and before every tribe of thy people ISRAEL.
“For Elohim shall be with thee in all thy ways, and He will perform thy will in everything that thou determinest. And thou shalt inherit the countries of thine enemy, and the greatness of thy people shall be praised because of the greatness of thine awesomeness, and because of the multitude of thy soldiers.
Self-Will vs His-Will
However all those who do not perform the Will of Elohim will fear thee because thou dost do His Will, and dost serve Him, and therefore He will give thee great majesty in the sight of those who see thee.
Their hearts shall tremble before the bridle of thy horses, and the quiver of thy bow, and the glitter of thy shield, and they shall bow down to the face of the earth, for their hearts shall be terrified at the sight of thy majesty.
And when those who are in the mountains see thee afar off they shall come down to the plain, and those who are on the seas and in the deep waters shall come forth, so that the Lord may bring them into thy hand, because they have transgressed the command of Elohim.
And thou, when thou doest His Will, shalt receive from HIM everything for which thou hast asked; for if thou lovest HIM He will love thee, and if thou keepest His commandment He will grant thee the petition of thy heart, and everything that thou seekest thou shalt receive from HIM.
For He is the Good One to the good, and the Compassionate to the compassionate, and He doeth the will of those who fear HIM, and He giveth a reward to those who wait patiently for HIM.
Do good and put aside evil
Be patient in respect of wrath, and at the end He will make thee to rejoice; love righteousness and He will make life to blossom for thee. Be a good man to the good, and a reprover of sinners.
And put aside the wickedness of the evil man by rebuking and correcting him, and condemn and disgrace the evil man who doeth violence to his neighbour in the court of law.
And do justice to the poor man and to the orphans, and release them from the hand of him that doeth them wrong. Also deliver him that is forsaken and the man who is in misery, and release him from the hand of him that causeth him to suffer.
Therefore judge not with partiality, and have no respect of persons, but judge righteously. When thou undertakest to judge, love not gifts (i.e., bribes) and accept not persons.
And admonish thy governors (or, judges) that they be free from the taking of gifts, and that they accept not the persons of their friends, or of their enemies, or of rich or poor, in giving judgment; and they shall surely judge their neighbours in righteousness, and with a just judgment.
Blessings Evident even today
In conclusion, we see that the Throne of David is still blessed and highly favoured. His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I, surely was living testimony to the blessings of Kings.
This article, written from the Kebra Nagast, one of the books removed from the Bible, is our history. It helps to truly understand the events of what took place with our ancestors.
Seek the scriptures a Chapter a day, as it was recommended by Jah, from genesis one to revelations twenty two. With a clear conscience and humbleness of a child, receive the words of HIM with Holiness.
Write the words of Jah on your hearts and know where you’re coming from. Seek Jah first and all else will be added. Let the blessings of the Most High abide with thee.
Therefore, I pray these words, this knowledge revealed will help you along your journey and increase your faith. Be Blessed.
