Note: A decision had to be made as to whether this was alluding the marriage (perhaps wedding feast) of Christ to His Queen bride or whether this was making adue to the king and new queen of then Israel. Because of the language of the king being taught, the continuance of riding forward into battle, the visit of daughter of Tyre and rich people, an entourage of accompanying virgins, the forsaking of her fathers for the comfort of her own future children it was decided that this was indeed speaking specifically of past royalty. A kingdom scepter whom God has anointed is a reverent thing after all to be respected by us all. However it is nice to ponder the future reception of Christ King and Glorious Bride, there are plenty of beneficial scriptural comparisons to indulge in here.
