Fourth "O" Antiphon. . .

. . .O clavis David

Isaiah prophesied, "I [the Lord] will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David; he shall open, and no one shall shut; he shall shut, and no one shall open" (22:22).

Messiah Jesus was accorded this title, along with Scepter of the House of Israel, too, because all authority is his to unlock what imprisons us.
