What Am I?

by Dody Gibson

They say I’m regal and stately
I’m lauded far and wide
My height like the Amorite
But warned against my pride

I’m known for strength and beauty
A sign of prosperity
My life a sum of value
I enjoy longevity

One asked my daughter’s hand
For their son to be a wife
But a wild beast trode them down
The punishment their life

I and others like me
Went out to anoint a king
But only the most unworthy
This honor answering

Though not from Israel
My roots run very deep
My portion Jehovah’s law
I never failed to keep

My names not in the New
No not a single time
To know this puzzle’s answer
Consider again this rhyme

See the answer to this puzzle.
