2 Also in time past when Saul was king ouer vs, thou wast hee that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the Lord said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt bee a captaine ouer Israel.
6 ¶ And the king and his men went to Ierusalem, vnto the Iebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake vnto Dauid, saying, Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: Thinking, Dauid cannot come in hither.
8 And Dauid said on that day, Whosoeuer getteth vp to the gutter, and smiteth the Iebusites, and the lame, and the blind, that are hated of Dauids soule, he shall be chiefe and captaine: Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.
19 And Dauid enquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I goe vp to the Philistines? wilt thou deliuer them into mine hand? And the Lord said vnto Dauid, Goe vp: for I will doubtlesse deliuer the Philistines into thine hand.
20 And Dauid came to Baal-Perazim, and Dauid smote them there, and said, The Lord hath broken foorth vpon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place, Baal-Perazim.
24 And let it be when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulbery trees, that then thou shalt bestirre thy selfe: for then shal the Lord goe out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.

Yes truly God is faithful. He stood with David, remember David was a man after God's own heart. WE all sin and come short daily but if we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive us. WE must strife not to sin or continue in sin but pray for forgiveness. Praise God.

2 Samuel 5:10-19 Principle illustrated: God delivered the Philistines into David’s hand even though he was slipping away from God by taking more concubines. The Lord made David the king of Israel which was both an honor and a blessing to David, and David messed up by taking concubines. It was wrong of David to allow his standards slip. Then David went to the hold to hide from the Philistines because they heard that he was the king over Israel. Then David finally prayed to God and asked him to deliver the Philistines into his hand. Even though David did not deserve God’s blessing right then, God told him that he would “doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.” I know that God has blessed me when I do not deserve it. I am so happy that He is so merciful because if He were not then I would live a pathetic life and lose any hope of succession that I might have. The power of prayer is amazing. David should have remembered that before he took all those concubines and went to the hold. God is always there for me even though I am not always there for Him when I really should be. God is my shepherd. It is Him that I want.

WHY ARE THE NAMES DIFFERENT FOR SHAMMUAH OR SHAMMA, WHICH IS CORRECT. KINGS JAMES SHOWS "SHAMMUAH". ARE THE MEANINGS THE SAME? QURIOUS
