• Historic Handshake and Words
in Washington, March 26, 1979
With an historic handshake for peace on Monday on the lawn of the White House, -U.S.
President Jimmy Carter, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister
Menahem Begin marked the beginning of a new era in the turbulent Middle East.
The Psalm for Peace, Psalm 126, was read by Prime Minister Begin to mark the historic
occasion, and all three leaders referred to the prophetic words of Isaiah (Chapter 2):
The word that Isaiah son of Amoz prophesied concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
In the days to come, The Mount of the Lord's House shall stand firm above the mountains
and tower above the hills; and all the nations shall gaze on it with joy.
And the many peoples shall go and shall say: "Come, let us go up to the Mount of the Lord, to
the House of the God of Jacob; that He may instruct us in His ways, and that we may walk in his
paths." For instruction shall come forth from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. •
Thus He will judge among the nations and arbitrate for the many peoples,
. And they shall bent their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks:
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation; Neither shall they learn war anymore.
