Discussion for 2 Samuel 8

  • Sarah
    Justin Rampley, Scripture always confirms Scripture. Study the Bible circumspectly (as a whole) it helps clarify questions such as this. What you have noted is explained by looking at the genealogy in 1 Chronicles 6. Several times it repeats these names because it was common for children to be named after their parents (unless one dishonored God, then they stopped naming after that person).

    Justin: The Abiathar (Father)
  • Justin Rampley
    Verse 17, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, isn't this incorrect? Abiathar is the son of Ahimelech.
  • Quansto
    Carlos; David is asleep in death awaiting resurrection into the new promise world. It says so in Acts 2:34
  • Carlos Angel Rey
    Thought of David as young? He's probably old by now!
  • Sokanon
    David was a humble man. He killed 18,000 men. Toi sent him gifts for defeating his enemy, and David dedicated it all to the Lord. God has given us talents and abilities. When we use them, are we glorifying God?
