Candidate for Israeli Prime Minister made a campaign stop at the Mount of Olives. He was swarmed by international journalists concerned for his position on Jerusalem, that it must remain undivided. The Psalmist suggests Netanyahu will win, that he is able to serve in the tabernacle.
1Yahvah, who will live in your tent? Who will inhabit your holy mountain?
2He that walks uprightly and works righteousness and speaks the truth in his heart.
3He that does not deceive with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor accepts a bribe from his neighbor;
4in whose eyes a detestable person is despised; but he honors those who worship Yahvah; he that swears to his neighbor and does not lie;
5he that does not lend out his money with interest, nor takes a bribe against the innocent. He that does these things is upright and will never be moved.
Benjamin Netanyahu is favored to win the Israeli elections in a week. He visited the Mount of Olives, which over looks the Temple Mount on Monday afternoon, a few hours after theoretical time for this Psalm.
He was followed by a crew of international journalists who were perhaps more interested in his rhetoric than local media because one of his key campaign issues is the preservation of Jerusalem.
The "Holy Hill" reference in the Psalm is a reference to both Jerusalem and Temple Mount and perhaps by extension even the Mount of Olives. Netanyahu's opponent in the election had offered to divide the city.
The Psalmist asks who can dwell in the Tabernacle, who can dwell in the Holy Hill, and then proceeds to answer the question.
Questions like this are asked of voters, but the election process is God's way of finding their own heart.
Netanyahu is expected to win the election. If he wins he will occupy the top of the "hill" that is the government of Israel, a very specific pun based on the symbolic meaning of hill referring to government.
The Jerusalem Post carried the details of his visit.
Verse 1 asks who will live in God's tabernacle, who can inhabit the top of a mountain. The 2 terms taken together are referring to the house at the top of a government, not church building in the common sense. Mountain is a symbol that means government. Natanyahu's visit suggests he is the one to do so.
Verses 2 through 5 suggest that Netanyahu has excellent qualifications in God's eyes. Time will tell.
