Num.24:17b There shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel.
Num.24:19a  Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion.
Blessed is He Who cometh in the Name of the Lord. Hosanna in the Highest.
Is.40:9  O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!
