DAILY READINGS: Ezra 5:1-17; Daniel 6:1-28; Revelation 2:1-17

And he took their king’s crown from off his head, the weight whereof was a talent of gold with the precious stones: and it was set on David’s head. 2 Samuel 12:30

When Rabbat was conquered, the defeated king’s glorious crown was placed on David’s head, manifesting his victory and supremacy. But, what is that compared to the conquest of our Lord? Revelation 11:15 announces, “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” “And on his head were many crowns” (Rev. 19:12). All praise to Him who
reigns on high. —Carl Knott

Crown Him with many crowns, as thrones before Him fall;
Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns, for He is king of all. —Matthew Bridges
