shebet. ("Rod or staff of a ruler".) In Judges 5:14 translated "out of Zebulun marchers with the staff of the writer" or numberer, who levied and mustered the troops, so a leader in general. 2 Kings 25:19, "principal scribe of the host which mustered the people"; 2 Chronicles 26:11; Psalm 2:9, "thou shalt break them with a rod of iron." Whoever will not obey Thy loving sceptre, as the Good Shepherd, shall be crushed with an iron sceptre (Matthew 21:44; Daniel 2:34-35; Daniel 2:44). The iron kingdom Christ's iron sceptre shall break as clay. Psalm 125:3, "the sceptre of the wicked (world power; "Persia" at this time) shall not rest (permanently) upon the lot of the righteous," namely, on the Holy Land: a psalm written after the return from Babylon. Contrast Christ's "right sceptre" (Psalm 45:6; Isaiah 11:3-4).
