Period of the Wars

“David battles almost constantly with Israel’s enemies, including the Philistines, Moabites, Edomites, and Ammonites.  Yet in the midst of defending his kingdom and spreading its borders offensively, David falls victim to his own lust and becomes both an adulterer and a murderer.  David’s subsequent repentance and upright attitude show why, despite such serious offenses, he will later be called a man after God’s own heart.”
