King Shlomo’s throne is “firmly established.” Unlike his father David, Shlomo rules a kingdom that is consistently strong and at peace. Under his rule, the Kingdom of Israel grows into a world power, with the ability to spread monotheism throughout the world, and becomes a shining example of a just society. The knowledge of the One true God and His insistence on justice and righteousness is key to building a just society, as this keeps people from oppressing others and encourages them to make the world a better place. Today’s State of Israel embraces this same opportunity on a daily basis, shining as a moral light in a world all too often darkened by hate, poverty and injustice.
