664. Because just and true are Thy ways, O King of saints, signifies that all things which proceed from Him are just and true, because He is the Divine good and the Divine truth itself in heaven and in the church. By "ways" are signified truths leading to good (n. 176), and by "King," when speaking of the Lord, is signified the Divine truth, and by "King of saints," the Divine truth in heaven and in the church from Him; for by "saints" are signified they who are in Divine truths from the Lord (n. 173, 586). Hence by "just and true are Thy ways, O King of saints," is signified that all things which proceed from the Lord are just and true, because He is the Divine truth itself in heaven and in the church. The Lord is called "King" in His Divine Human, because this is the Messiah, the Anointed the Christ, the Son of God; that "Messiah" in the Hebrew language is "Christ" in the Greek, and that "the Messiah" or "Christ" is the Son of God, may be seen above (n. 520); that "Messiah" signifies both King and Anointed in the Hebrew language, is known. The reason why the Lord, as King, is the Divine truth, is because this is signified by "a king" (n. 20, 483). Hence it is that by "kings" are signified they who are in Divine truths from the Lord (Rev. 1:6; 5:10). It is on this account that heaven and the church are called His "kingdom." Then His coming into the world is called the gospel of the kingdom. Heaven and the church are called "His kingdom" (Dan. 2:44; 7:13, 14, 27; Matt. 12:28; 16:28; Mark 1:14, 15; 9:1; 15:43; Luke 1:33; 4:43; 8:1, 10; 9:2, 11, 27; 10:11; 16:16; 19:11; 21:31; 22:18; 23:51). And His coming is called "the gospel of the kingdom" (Matt. 4:23; 9:35; 24:14). But more may be seen on this subject in Doctrine of the Lord.
[2] That the Lord is called King is evident from the following passages:
They shall make war with the Lamb, but the Lamb shall overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings (Rev. 17:14).
He that sitteth upon the white horse is called the Word, and His name is Lord of lords and King of kings (Rev. 19:13, 16; Dan. 2:47).
Nathanael said, Thou art the Son of God, Thou art the King of Israel (John 1:49).
When the Son of man shall come in His glory, He shall sit upon the throne of His glory, and the King shall say to them that are on His right hand and on His left (Matt. 25:31, 34, 41).
They cried, Hosanna, blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel (John 12:13).
Pilate asked Jesus whether He was a king. Jesus answered, I am a king; for this I was born, and for this I came into the world (John 18:37).
Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty; Jehovah is our King, He will save us (Isa. 33:17, 22).
I Jehovah am your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King (Isa. 43:15).
Thus said Jehovah the King of Israel, and His Redeemer Jehovah of Hosts, I am the First and the Last, and besides Me there is no God (Isa. 44:6).
Jehovah shall be King over the whole earth (Zech. 14:9; Ps. 47:2, 6-8).
Lift up your heads, O ye gates, that the King of glory may come in; Jehovah of Hosts, He is the King of glory (Ps. 24:7-10).
I will raise up unto David a just branch, who shall reign King, and shall do judgment and justice in the earth (Jer. 23:5; 33:15; besides other places, as Isa. 6:5; 52:7; Jer. 10:7, 10; 46:18; Ezek. 37:22, 24; Zeph. 3:15; Ps. 20:9; 45:11, 13, 15; 68:24; 74:12).
