My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.
His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven.
—from Psalm 89
I love thinking of the moon as a faithful witness. She’s always there. Sometimes during the day, despite light pollution, even when I don’t pay attention, she shines.
