#37 The Shepherd King [Lord of the Hill]

In the morning the Sir came out and opened the big brown envelope that he received. Konrad had been waiting for this book a long long time and finally he get it.
Someone a few years ago, and from whom he just remembered the face, had recommended the reading of a Hasmonean source text. Pages that even having spent many centuries can raise a cloud of comments, upsets and severe criticism. Apocryphal! is the most common word about this document, half legend, half-true story.
"Unique and truly life of the King of Judea: David the Lion of the East".

Page 1, 2Verse 5-10:
5Then the prophet arrived to the long valley close to the village of Hebron. 6Asking about some shepherds; about one of them especially who had a nice voice and powerful gazes. 7And down  the hills was a young man that offered water and a place for rest. 8The old walker  told him:
One word from you
9can renovate the Universal Order. 10You: King of Judah.

Page 4, 9Verse 15-19:
15Because I am the King of Judah, 16the invincible and powerful Lion of  Hebron. 17The First of the Humans in front of the landscape, 18as well as the last of the Shepherds 19in the caravan that leads us from the creation to the Maljut.

Page 79, 55Verse 1-8:
1In the road to Jerusalem there was a hill, 2in the hill there was a fountain of clear waters 3and around it was a delightful garden  plenty of fruits and animals. 4In the right corner of this place an Angel of God was standing up 5and asked him: 6What if the Text was first than the matter? 7What if You had came earlier, 8even before than your beauty and your nobility condition?

Lord Konrad had great remembrances with reading and dreams from the past about some golden walls and shining horizons, places so far away in the East.
This kind of memories that suddenly jump out from their dark and hiding spaces.

Page 114, 65Verse 32:
32The shepherd King was alone in a desert, a landscape of stones, salt and dreams.

Page 200, 81Verse 5-8:
5The sun sang melancholy songs with something like an announcing a death, 6a full moon day covered of dried flowers, tiny yellow flowers. 7Also the assassination of the Great Ancestor.  8Melodies as old as every hour and minute of waiting.

Page 202, 84Verse 1-10:
1Then the Prophet came down to the hills around the City of David, asking about 2a Man that was the King of the Shepherds, a long time ago. 3Some inhabitants  thought he was crazy and disturbed him with wrong indications and jokes.  
4In the door of the city called Gate of Zion, a guardian of the Palace offered him a place for rest 5and some fresh water. 6You see? I am now so old and full of disgrace and sorrows! 7You are just a tool for the concretion of the drama of your Master, 8and your role is almost finishing. Answered the Angel: 9Be grateful 10and even the sea will be praying the day of your judgement.

He moved his eyes through the end and he found:

99 2And David said to the old man: What are the purpose and principle of the work? 3What is the basis on which my house will be built into eternity?
4All that i know my Lord is a little sentence from a millenarian lullaby: 5Will be simple as your infinite fibbers of flesh and soul.  6Colourful lines on your personal history, 7a walk around the palace of the Heart will teach you that 8all that you need is to speak 9and the Kingdom will open it's doors to your Glory.

After that, He said Amen.
