And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Read Chapter 1
George Leo Haydock
Those are here called of the house of Jacob, who out of the multitude of the Jews believed in Christ. This is conformable to that text of St. Paul: All are not Israelites that are of Israel, but the children of the promise are accounted for the seed. (Romans ix. 6, 8.) (St. Chrysostom, hom. vii. on S. Matt.)
And of his kingdom there shall be no end: which clearly shows it was not to be a temporal, but a spiritual and an eternal kingdom. (Witham)
Peter said: We preach one God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, that has made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that therein is, who is the true King; and of His kingdom there shall be no end.
