Thoughts: David was a Renaissance man before the Renaissance. He was a shepherd who was entrusted with his father Jesse’s flocks when he was only twelve years old.
He was a musician who played the harp, an instrument which demands a discerning ear.
He was a warrior who killed the mocking Philistine enemy Goliath when he was still a boy. He led victorious Israelite armies against their foes.
He was the second king of Israel, reigning successfully from 1000 B.C. to 960 B. C.
He was a poet, whose genius is evidenced in verse four.
“And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.”
