The 'Clean Hands' video offers spectacular visuals of Makedah traversing the majestic Judean mountains in royal robes of Ethiopia with her kingman Melchizedek (beloved youths by their side) reminiscent of Queen of Sheba and King Solomon - plus absolutely breathtaking aerial shots of the amazing Dead Sea and Metzuke Dragot near Jerusalem.
