“You have proffered him blessings of good things, have set upon his head a crown of fine gold” PSALMS 21:4 (The Israel Bible™)

This psalm praises the king of Israel and prays that he conquer Israel’s enemies. Hashem (God) places a gold crown on his head, as a symbol of His protection and providence. The first king of Israel, Shaul (Saul), came from the tribe of Binyamin (Benjamin). The prophet Shmuel (Samuel) anoints him in the hills of Efraim and the nation rallies behind him and crowns him king.
