  1. G-d is the One responsible for founding and building Zion.

    a. Isaiah 14:32. Yahweh has founded Zion as a refuge for His people.

    b. Psalm 102:16. Yahweh has built up Zion and there displayed His glory. This statement, in context, addresses both the past and the future.

    c. Isaiah 28:16. G-d is so involved in founding Zion that He Himself is laying in Zion a costly chief cornerstone that cannot be dislodged.

  2. G-d had a plan for a specific king. G-d had a plan for a specific wife. This speaks to His blessings for us. What is the blessing to Him if we can not give to Him for He does not need anything?
