of death, upon them hath the light shined. 2

For the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, Thou hast broken as in the day

That the government may be increased, and of peace there be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom,
to establish it, and to uphold it through justice and through righteousness from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the
L-RD of hosts doth perform this. "
