"City of God" XVII.12-13

Chapter 12:
More exposition of how the blessings and the promises made to Israel and David point to Christ.

Chapter 13:
These promises are not completely fulfilled in Solomon, though they are in part expressed there.

[I skim over the summary of these sections not because what Augustine is saying isn't true, but because 1) there is better exposition of any one of these specific texts available; and 2) what I find interesting is not the specific proof-texts he offers, but rather the overall point of this section that Augustine is making, which we'll get in later sections.]
