Thy Neck is Like the Tower of David, Builded with Bulwarks; a Thousand Shields Hang Upon It, all the Armor of Mighty Men.
He asked you for life, and you gave it to him-- length of days, for ever and ever.
May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
