- Between  980 AD and 1030 AD, the West lives a confused period, where fear and hope mingle. But, after having overcome his fears, he knows a prodigious rise during which is set up medieval society.
(extract of the psalm 99 associated to this generation, verses 1 to 3 )
- L’Éternel règne : les nations tremblent ; il siège sur les Chérubins : la terre vacille.
- L’Éternel est grand dans Sion, élevé bien au-dessus de toutes les nations.
- Qu’on rende hommage à ton nom grand et redoutable : Il est saint !
- And yet , no more than the year 1000 the year 1033 brings Parousia or end of the world. A feeling of relief then seizes everyone. A frenzy of construction animates the Christian people, and life regains its rights. A great movement of expansion animates the West from the beginning of the eleventh century to the middle of the thirteenth century.
- After this I looked , and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
- And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
- Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?”
- I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
- Therefore,“they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.
During Pesach, seven sheep are sacrificed every day , making a total of forty-nine sheep. In the image of the forty-nine curses evoked in Leviticus, like the forty-nine generations of curse between the death of Solomon and the destruction of the second Temple.
During the Feast of Succot, fourteen sheep are sacrificed every day, making a total of ninety-eight sheep . Like the ninety-eight curses evoked in Deuteronomy, like the ninety-eight generations of curse between the destruction of the Second Temple and the final redemption of the people of Israel.
(extract of the psalm 99 associated to this generation, verses 4 to 9 )
- And the might of the King who loves judgment; You founded equity; judgment and righteousness You made in Jacob.
- Exalt the Lord our God and prostrate yourselves to His footstool, it is holy.
- Moses and Aaron among His priests, and Samuel among those who call in His name, would call out to the Lord, and He would answer them.
- In a pillar of cloud He would speak to them; they kept His testimonies and the statutes He gave them.
- O Lord, Our God, You answered them; You were a forgiving God for them but vengeful for their misdeeds.
- Exalt the Lord our God and prostrate yourselves to the mount of His sanctuary, for the Lord our God is holy.
