    In verse 19 we see that David was not presumptuous with Jehovah God. He sought direction from him and we want to do the same in our lives.

    Hello Patricia,

    In this second battle at Rephaim, God told King David to take his soldiers to the back of the enemy's camp with the tactic to surround them after they start the attack. But they were not to start attacking until God gave the signal. The signal was when the birds fly off the Mulberry trees. A flock of birds usually fly up from the tops of trees

    mulberry trees. We had a mulberry tree in our front yard when I was a kid. There had green berries about the size of a dime. They were good for shooting in my slingshot. No good for eating but good ammo.

    CH 3:14 - the name of "Shammua" should be "Shammuah"

    What jumps out at me here, is how amazing God and his ways past finding out, no doubt he could have went before him head to the Philistine but made him fetch a compass to catch them from behinds and to wait for the sound on top of the trees, wow that is just intriguing how God chooses to accomplish things from being able to actually do it any which way He wants yet he considers us to all detail.

    about having many wives and concubines king David inherited from his great grand father Jacob, his grand father Judah who also had many wives and concubines "read Genesis" in detailed and understand where the trend came from. but all in all king David was a prayer warrior and intercessor before God - a man after God's heart-
  • BSP on 2 Samuel 5
    Verse 25: David was victorious because he listened to God's command after he inquired of God.
  • April on 2 Samuel 5
    I use to wonder about concubines and the many wives then I thought about, Deuteronomy 12:15(KJV)Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh in all thy gates,whatsoever thy soul lusteth after,according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee:the unclean and the clean may eat thereof,as of the roebuck and as of the hart.maybe it was ok for whoever he blesses kind of thing.

  • Ronald on 2 Samuel 5
    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.
