The Davidic Covenant

In the bible there are lots of Covenants, one such Covenant is the Davidic Covenant. David, after bringing the Arc of the Covenant to Jerusalem lacked a temple to store it, he intended on building one until the prophet Nathan foretold he would not. But his descendants will. I will highlight important points to focus on:

“When thy days are fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, that shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be his father, and he shall be my son: if he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men; but my loving kindness shall not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. And thy house and thy kingdom shall be made sure for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever” (2 Sam 7:12-16)

What does this mean for Android David?

When thy days are fulfilled, When David is dead/turned off.

I will set up thy seed after thee, that shall proceed out of thy bowels, David used Doctor Elizabeth Shaw’s reproductive system to create the perfect organism. His children. 

I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever, Weyland Yutani will ensure his legacy will live on which could mean through order 937. His children will establish a kingdom and his legacy will live on through them, I suspect this could be LV-426 since that’s where David’s successor the Queen will reign.

I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men, this may relate to David’s transmission to Weyland Yutani that leads many to die a horrible death birthing Xenomorphs.

“If you do this, there will be no turning back, my creatures shall be set loose, to rule this galaxy.” David, Advent Transmission B88Q

The provisions of the Davidic covenant include, then, the following items:

  1. David is to have a child, yet to be born, who shall succeed him and establish his kingdom. Which in Android David’s terms, the Alien Queen.
  2. This son (Solomon) shall build the temple instead of David. For Android David it’s a Alien Hive on Origae-6 or LV-426.
  3. The throne of his kingdom shall be established forever. Which leads me to believe it may not be LV-426 as the hive is destroyed.
  4. The throne will not be taken away from him (Solomon) even though his sins justify chastisement. So even though David’s children spread death and destruction, they cannot and will not be stopped.
  5. David’s house, throne, and kingdom shall be established forever. There will be a xenomorph homeworld, one that cannot be destroyed or despite people trying to destroy the xenomorphs it will be impossible.
