PM: Introit Mondays--Feast Of The Baptism Of The Lord

You have loved justice and hated iniquity; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your companions. 
V. My heart overflows with a goodly theme; I address my works to the King. 
Ps. 44:8, V. 2
While not the same act, I see a parallel between Jesus' baptism and David's anointing as King with this Introit. Both have been, in a sense, set aside because God has found favor with them.
