King David

1 These are the last words of David:
“The inspired utterance of David son of Jesse,
the utterance of the man exalted by the Most High,
the man anointed by the God of Jacob,
the hero of Israel's songs:
2 Samuel 23:1 (NIV)

David - means beloved - was a Shepard, a soldier, a military commander an artist: poet, singer, dancer and musician. He was a king by God Almighty's choice, the King of Israel that brought unity within the Land of Israel - Israel=Yisra'el=God's warrior - and peace at his borders. Who was he and what was so special about him?

2 “The Spirit of the LORD spoke through me;
his word was on my tongue.
3 The God of Israel spoke,
the Rock of Israel said to me:

'When one rules over people in righteousness,
when he rules in the fear of God,
4 he is like the light of morning at sunrise
on a cloudless morning,
like the brightness after rain
that brings grass from the earth.’

5 “If my house were not right with God,
surely he would not have made with me an everlasting covenant,
arranged and secured in every part;
surely he would not bring to fruition my salvation
and grant me my every desire.
2 Samuel 23:2-5 (NIV)
