“The king shall have joy in Your strength, O Lord; And in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice! You have given him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips.” Psalm 21:1-2
Consider the first gift, gold. In this Psalm 21 passage, David is speaking of a king. Kings wear a crown of gold. When the Wise Men brought gold, they were saying they recognized the Child of Bethlehem as a King. They even asked, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? He’s destined to reign. He has sovereign dominion.” Gold symbolizes His kingship.
