This was marvelously true of Jesus Christ. In His early years it was said, So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. Luke Even the opponents of Jesus said, No man ever spoke like this Man! John Therefore God has blessed You forever : In the beauty of His character and the graciousness of His words, the King enjoys the blessing of God, and enjoys it forever.
Parable of the Pearl of Great Price (Forerunner Commentary)
There is an aspect or dimension of God that deals with Him and blesses Him. Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One : The King is beautiful in character and speaks grace-filled words, but is nothing like a soft or effeminate man. This King is a man of war, a Mighty One armed with a sword. Jesus is the truest of heroes. Hero worship in his case alone is commendable. He is mighty to save, mighty in love. In Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness : The King is full of majesty and blessing, but not primarily out of conquest and force.
It flows from His truth, humility, and righteousness. This means that the exercise of the strength and skill of the King teaches Him, and teaches Him awesome things. Applying this to Jesus Christ may seem strange. Hebrews says of Jesus that He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. Jesus learned the practice of obedience in the fiery test of His own suffering. This was an exercise of His strength and skill, and one of the awesome things He learned.
He not only has a sword , but also sharp arrows , ready and sent out against His enemies. His might brings the world into submission the peoples fall under You. Jesus shoots His arrows at the heart , and they are sharp — ready and able to pierce. Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.
The description of Psalm might apply to a remarkable man who was nevertheless merely a man. As the description continued, it clearly refers to this King Himself as God, seated upon an eternal throne. The writer of the letter to the Hebrews explained how these words specifically apply to Jesus Hebrews He noted not only that these words say that Jesus is the eternally enthroned God, but also that God the Father regards Him so. The writer of the Hebrews explained that prophetically, the sons of Korah gave us the words that God the Father spoke to God the Son.
His kingdom is founded with righteousness , so much so that the symbol of His authority a scepter is righteousness itself. You love righteousness and hate wickedness : The righteousness of His kingdom comes from the character of the King. It is the natural result of His love of righteousness and His hate towards wickedness. He is blessed with the oil of gladness — He is glad and satisfied, and that more than any other more than Your companions. He is an anointed King.

It is true that Jesus was a Man of Sorrows, well acquainted with grief Isaiah Yet His work of righteousness — in all its fullness and dimensions — was rewarded as the most glad and satisfying work ever performed. This is a strange statement — this King is God, and yet receives from God.
Passages like this are the foundation for the idea of the Trinity — that there is One God who exists in Three Persons. This is week 3 of our series on the Kingdom of Heaven is like.
This week it is like a man hunting for the perfect pearl and what he was like. He had it all, at least on the surface. A good business, a fine family, status in the community. He had everything it would appear, but not quite enough. Some men craved after gold or silver or jewels not this man. Those things were all so cold and inanimate, forged and moulded deep inside an Christianity is not a religion but far more like a marraige. It demands you ALL.
