The eternal house of King David


"Part of Divine supervision of the [Jewish] nation is that when her king and officers are exiled among the nations and humbled, those who come from the seed of David will always have stature and honour over other Jews, and some authority and leadership over them. If, in exile, you see families with lineage who have continuous wealth and honour, know that they are of the shoot of Yishai and they come from the seed of David. Regarding this the elder [Yaakov] prophesied, 'The sceptre shall not leave Yehudah.'"

(Don Isaac Abarbanel, Maayanei haYeshuah, Maayan 5 Tamar 2)

Have a great day,
