THE KEY OF DAVID
Rev 3:7 “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia:
“” He who is holy and true, who holds the key of David, who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens.
(Heb. Maftêaj) The key was also
of wood and had pegs which correspond to those of the lock.
When the inserted in the hole or groove, so lifting the pins
that could move the bar and the door opened. It turned into the hole,
but acted as a lever to lift the pins. The 1st mention of a
key in the Bible dates from the period of the judges (Judges 3:25). Apparently
some were large old that had to be carried over the shoulder (Isa.
22:22). Figuratively, the keys were symbols of authority.
As to bolt the verb translated “close” comes from naal, literally “bind (strips).” The doors
secured by pins or bolts of wood with leather straps or ropes.
