Swift and Certain ; King Solomon the Wise
Swift and Certain.
"The third Jachin is the right one of two pillars in front of Solomon's temple; the left one is named Boaz (1 Kings 7:21).
The name Jachin comes from the word (kun 964), meaning established, prepared, fixed, certain. Derivatives: (ken 964a), right, true; (ken 964b), thus, so; (makon 964c), place - mostly referring to God's dwelling place; (mekona 964d), base - almost only used in 1 Kings 7 where it refers to the bases of the bronze lavers.
Jachin is the active form of (kun 964), and means He Will Establish, or He Will Give Certainty." - link.
Psalm 127 of Solomon.
Psalm 72 of Solomon. reading with transcript.
"4He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor*. [This is in contrast to supporting the oppressor]
5They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations. [they do not fear the corrupt worm slave pet]
6He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers [that] water the earth. [from a high hight of a true king]
7In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth"
"11Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
12For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and [him] that hath no helper.
13He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
14He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
15And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; [and] daily shall he be praised."
Basically King Solomon the wise was a socialist and champion of justice and the poor and oppressed; and distroyer of those critical to his agenda like a regin of terror. In this was justice is enforced and said to be good thing; insanity is throw away and all wonder at such power over evil and criminality. For he is King not a slave. ...It was swift and certain too....
*probably refers to nobles and officials being thrown off the cliffs into the vale of Hinnom.
