7  Now I know that Hashem will give victory to His anointed, will answer him from His heavenly sanctuary with the mighty victories of His right arm.

20:7   Hashem will give victory to His anointed

Tomb of King David in Jerusalem

The Torah predicts a time when the Children of Israel, settled in the Land of Israel, will seek a king (Deuteronomy 17:14). God acquiesces to the request on condition that His anointed will be different from the kings of the other nations, in that he will be chosen by God (verse 15). This prediction came true in the times of the prophet Shmuel (I Samuel 8), as Shaul, followed by David and Shlomo, were chosen by Hashem as the first Jewish kings. The selection and anointing of the monarch reflects the vital relationship that the Jewish king must have with the priest, who is also anointed, and the prophet, God’s messenger who selects and anoints the king. Together, these three represent the political, ritual and spiritual leadership of Israel. In order to lead the nation on the right path, the three leaders must work together and recognize the importance of each one’s role. When, as in the case of David, the nation reveres the king and he, in turn, recognizes that his power comes from the Holy One, then “Hashem will give victory to His anointed.”

  • The people of Israel see all about them that the other peoples of the plains, valleys, mountains, all have Kings. They for whatever reasons feel well for better lack of words cheated. God hears them and God acquiesces to the request of there cries.However he lets them know up front that there King and line of kings will be very different than any of the kings of the Earth so far. The King, there King will be chosen by God and not by them. Then it will go two steps further. The Jewish king must have with the priest, anointed, the prophet, God’s messenger who selects and anoints the king. There must be this intricate relationship between the three here on Earth. God is the beginning of the Election of The King. All three then create the political, ritual and spiritual glue that bonds the State of Israel. They need to work together to bond together all along giving credit and faith to the One & only true God of Israel and the World. God will hear his people when all work together in this fashion The Holy One set into order so long ago. Carl
