David Becomes King

“David must surely have mixed emotions as he considers the future.  He is obviously relieved to be free of Saul’s constant threats, but the mantle of responsibility is now his.  (His kingship over all Israel is still some seven years away.  He must rule over Judah alone until civil conflict is resolved and he is accepted by all the people.

The account of these initial years begins with David seeking God’s guidance — one of the many traits which makes David such a special leader for God’s people.”

Read: 2 Samuel 2, 3, 1 Chronicles 3:1-4a, 2 Samuel 4, 5:1-5, 1 Chronicles 11:1-3, 1 Kings 2:11,
1 Chronicles 3:4b, 29:26-27, 1 Chronicles 12:23-40

All quotations taken from The Daily Bible.

Read: 1 Samuel 25:9-44, chapters 26 & 27, 1 Chronicles 12:1-7, 1 Samuel 28:1-2, 29:1-11,
1 Chronicles 12:19-22 and 1 Samuel chapter 30

The Daily Bible continues through 1 Samuel, introducing an amazing woman, Abigail, and also continuing Saul’s relentless pursuit of David.

Abigail is married to a very wealthy, crude and foolish man named Nabal.  Abigail is the epitome of a good wife; she protects Nabal and his household by doing all she can to stop David from seeking revenge upon this man who so arrogantly paid back evil for good.  But not only does Abigail protect her undeserving husband, she also stops David from taking vengeance into his own hands.

Through today’s reading, it is clear that God’s favor is upon David not only through the actions of Abigail but also because He steers David away from danger and delivers Saul into his hand once again.  You’d think Saul would catch on, but clearly Saul is far from God and also far from the promises he continually offers to David of repentance and sorrow for his actions.

“David often identifies the specific incident to which he refers in a given psalm, and those psalms are therefore included at the appropriate place in the historical narrative.  Other psalms are also included where they reflect the events David is experiences, although their relation to the particular historical context is only speculative.”

Read: 1 Samuel 21:7-12, Psalm 56, 1 Samuel 21:13-15, Psalm 34, 1 Samuel 22:1-2, Psalm 142,
