You, Adonai, protect us;
guard us forever from this generation…

With Satan bound, the curse and the night end (Revelation 21:25; 22:3,5). The city’s inhabitants require neither lamp by night nor sun by day, because ADONAI “will shine upon them. and [His servants] will reign as kings forever (Revelation 22:5). Most incredibly, “the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will worship him; they will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads” (Revelation 22:4).
