But You are holy,
Enthroned in praises of Israel.
-Psalm 22:3

God is holy. He is not like any other, and He chose the people of Israel to be His home. However, the people of Israel did not follow His commandment and traded their righteousness for sorrows. No people have been persecuted throughout time like the Jews. No people have survived such persecution either. And I’m sorry to say that their time of persecution and their time of sorrow is not yet over. But even though the scepter of righteousness has passed from their hands to the Gentiles, they are not forgotten. God still claims them as His people and He is bringing them back into the promised land. One day soon, He will reveal Himself to them and will be on the throne in Jerusalem. But until Israel will praise Him again, we will. God will receive praise from my lips. The rocks may keep silent for now, because I will lift up my voice in praise to my King.
