Bible Time Period: Royal Kingdom
You established a kingdom on your servant David and promised him an eternal throne: Establish your kingdom in our midst.
You will see a number of sides of David in these chapters. Note his faithfulness to the house of Saul; his sin with Bathsheba; his profound penitence. Also notice the Lord’s love for David and Bathsheba’s son Solomon from the very start (12:25).
Psalm 51 records David prayer for forgiveness after his sin with Bathsheba. Read and meditate on it if you have time. How does it speak to you?
