David (Hebrew) (d. c973 B.C.) king of judah and Israel, youngest son of jesse of Bethlehem, killed philistine giant Goliath, anointed by samuel as saul's successor, after seven years of rule conquered jerusalem and made it his capital. reputed author of the Psalms. {SD}

islam views king david as a prophet .

david was the first king of the united monarchy and transformed the twelve tribes of israel into a unified nation (around 1000 BCE). He was a mighty warrior who united the tribes under a single leader (himself) and drove off israel's enemies (such as the philistines and the Moabites). He established the capital in Jerusalem and bequeathed a peaceful country to his son Solomon.

(well-beloved), the son of Jesse. his life may be divided into three portions: → his youth before his introduction to the court of Saul; → his relations with Saul; → his reign. → the early life of david contains in many important respects the antecedents of his future career. It appears that david was the youngest son, probably the youngest child, of a family of ten, and was born in bethlehem B.C. 1085. the first time that david appears in history at once admits us to the whole family circle. the annual sacrificial feast is being held when samuel appears, sent by god to anoint one of Jesse's sons as they pass before him, (1 samuel 16:6-10) samuel sends for the youngest, David, who was "keeping the sheep," and anoints him. (1 samuel 16:11-13) As david stood before samuel we are enabled to fix his appearance at once in our minds. He was of short stature, with red or auburn hair, such as is not unfrequently seen in his countrymen of the east at the present day. In later life he wore a beard. his bright eyes are specially mentioned, (1 samuel 16:12) and generally he was remarkable for the grace of his figure and countenance ("fair of eyes," "comely," "goodly,") (1 samuel 16:12,18; 17:42) well made and of immense strength and agility. his swiftness and activity made him like a wild gazelle, his feet like hart's feet, and his arms strong enough to break a bow of steel. (Psalms 18:33,34) after the anointing david resumes his accustomed duties, and the next we know of him he is summoned to the court to chase away the king's madness by music, (1 samuel 16:14-19) and in the successful effort of david's harp we have the first glimpse into that genius for music and poetry which was afterwards consecrated in the Psalms. after this he returned to the old shepherd life again. one incident alone of his solitary shepherd life has come down to us-his conflict with the lion and the bear in defence of his father's flocks. (1 samuel 17:34,35) It was some years after this that david suddenly appears before his brothers in the camp of the army, and hears the defiant challenge of the philistine giant Goliath. with his shepherd's sling and five small pebbles he goes forth and defeats the giant. (1 samuel 17:40-51) → relations with Saul.-We now enter on a new aspect of david's life. the victory over goliath had been a turning point of his career. saul inquired his parentage, and took him finally to his court. jonathan was inspired by the romantic friendship which bound the two youths together to the end of their lives. unfortunately david's fame proved the foundation of that unhappy jealousy of saul towards him which, mingling with the king's constitutional malady, poisoned his whole future relations to David. his position in saul's court seems to have been first armor-bearer, (1 samuel 16:21; 18:2) then captain over a thousand, (1 samuel 18:13) and finally, on his marriage with Michal, the king's second daughter, he was raised to the high office of captain of the king's body-guard, second only, if not equal, to Abner, the captain of the host, and Jonathan, the heir apparent. david was not chiefly known for his successful exploits against the Philistines, by one of which he won his wife, and rove back the philistine power with a blow from which it only rallied at the disastrous close of saul's reign. He also still performed from time to time the office of minstrel; but the successive attempts of saul upon his life convinced him that he was in constant danger. He had two faithful allies, however, in the court-the son of Saul, his friend Jonathan, and the daughter of Saul, his wife Michal. warned by the one and assisted by the other, he escaped by night, and was from thenceforward a fugitive. He at first found a home at the court of Achish, among the Philistines; but his stay was short. discovered possibly by "the sword of Goliath," his presence revived the national enmity of the philistines against their former conqueror, and he only escaped by feigning madness. (1 samuel 21:13) his first retreat was the cave of Adullam. In this vicinity he was joined by his whole family, (1 samuel 22:1) and by a motley crowd of debtors and discontented men, (1 samuel 22:2) which formed the nucleus of his army. david's life for the next few years was made up of a succession of startling incidents. He secures an important ally in Abiathar, (1 samuel 23:6) his band of 400 at adullam soon increased to 600, (1 samuel 23:13) he is hunted by saul from place to place like a partridge. (1 samuel 23:14,22,25-29; 24:1-22; 26) He marries abigail and Ahinoam. (1 samuel 25:42,43) finally comes the new of the battle of Gilboa and the death of saul and Jonathan. 1Sam 31. the reception of the tidings of the death of his rival and of his friend, the solemn mourning, the vent of his indignation against the bearer of the message, the pathetic lamentation that followed, will close the second period of david's life. (2 samuel 1:1-27) → david's reign.- → As king of judah at Hebron, 7 1/2 years. (2 samuel 2:1; 2 samuel 5:5) here david was first formally anointed king. (2 samuel 2:4) To judah his dominion was nominally confined. gradually his power increased, and during the two years which followed the elevation of Ish-bosheth a series of skirmishes took place between the two kingdoms. then rapidly followed the successive murders of abner and of Ish-bosheth. (2 samuel 3:30; 4:5) the throne, so long waiting for him, was now vacant, and the united voice of the whole people at once called him to occupy it. for the third time david was anointed king, and a festival of three days celebrated the joyful event. (1 chronicles 12:39) one of david's first acts after becoming king was to secure Jerusalem, which he seized from the Jebusites and fixed the royal residence there. fortifications were added by the king and by Joab, and it was known by the special name of the "city of David." (2 samuel 5:9; 1 chronicles 11:7) the ark was now removed from its obscurity at Kirjath-jearim with marked solemnity, and conveyed to Jerusalem. the erection of the new capital at jerusalem introduces us to a new era in david's life and in the history of the monarchy. He became a king on the scale of the great oriental sovereigns of egypt and Persia, with a regular administration and organization of court and camp; and he also founded an imperial dominion which for the first time realize the prophetic description of the bounds of the chosen people. (Genesis 15:18-21) during the succeeding ten years the nations bordering on his kingdom caused david more or less trouble, but during this time he reduced to a state of permanent subjection the philistines on the west, (2 samuel 8:1) the Moabites on the east, (2 samuel 8:2) by the exploits of Benaiah, (2 samuel 23:20) the syrians on the northeast as far as the Euphrates, (2 samuel 8:3) the Edomites, (2 samuel 8:14) on the south; and finally the Ammonites, who had broken their ancient alliance, and made one grand resistance to the advance of his empire. (2 samuel 10:1-19; 12:26-31) three great calamities may be selected as marking the beginning, middle and close of david's otherwise prosperous reign, which appear to be intimated in the question of Gad, (2 samuel 24:13) "a three-years famine, a three-months flight or a three-days pestilence." a. Of these the first (the three-years famine) introduces us to the last notices of david's relations with the house of Saul, already referred to. b. the second group of incidents contains the tragedy of david's life, which grew in all its parts out of the polygamy, with its evil consequences, into which he had plunged on becoming king. underneath the splendor of his last glorious campaign against the ammonites was a dark story, known probably at that time only to a very few-the double crime of adultery with Bath-sheba and the virtual murder of Uriah. the clouds from this time gathered over david's fortunes, and henceforward "the sword never departed from his house." (2 samuel 12:10) the outrage on his daughter Tamar, the murder of his eldest son Amnon, and then the revolt of his best-beloved Absalom, brought on the crisis which once more sent him forth as wanderer, as in the days when he fled from Saul. (2 samuel 15:18) the final battle of Absalom's rebellion was fought in the "forest of Ephraim," and terminated in the accident which led to the young man's death; and, though nearly heartbroken at the loss of his son, david again reigned in undisturbed peace at Jerusalem. (2 samuel 20:1-22) c. the closing period of david's life, with the exception of one great calamity, may be considered as a gradual preparation for the reign of his successor. this calamity was the three-days pestilence which visited jerusalem at the warning of the prophet Gad. the occasion which led to this warning was the census of the people taken by Joab at the king's orders, (2 samuel 24:1-9; 1 chronicles 21:1-7; 27:23,24) which was for some reason sinful in god's sight. 2Sam 24. A formidable conspiracy to interrupt the succession broke out in the last days of david's reign; but the plot was stifled, and Solomon's inauguration took place under his father's auspices. (1 kings 1:1-53) By this time david's infirmities had grown upon him. his last song is preserved-a striking union of the ideal of a just ruler which he had placed before him and of the difficulties which he had felt in realizing it. (2 samuel 23:1-7) his last words to his successor are general exhortations to his duty. (1 kings 2:1-9) He died, according to Josephus, at the age of 70, and "was buried in the city of David." after the return from the captivity, "the sepulchres of David" were still pointed out "between Siloah and the house of the mighty men," or "the guard-house." (Nehemiah 3:16) his tomb, which became the general sepulchre of the kings of Judah, was pointed out in the latest times of the jewish people. the edifice shown as such from the crusades to the present day is on the southern hill of modern jerusalem commonly called mount Zion, under the so-called "Coenaculum;" but it cannot be identified with the tomb of David, which was emphatically within the walls.   

well-beloved, dear  

beloved, the eighth and youngest son of Jesse, a citizen of Bethlehem. his father seems to have been a man in humble life. his mother's name is not recorded. some think she was the Nahash of 2 Sam. 17:25. As to his personal appearance, we only know that he was red-haired, with beautiful eyes and a fair face (1 Sam. 16:12; 17:42). his early occupation was that of tending his father's sheep on the uplands of Judah. from what we know of his after history, doubtless he frequently beguiled his time, when thus engaged, with his shepherd's flute, while he drank in the many lessons taught him by the varied scenes spread around him. his first recorded exploits were his encounters with the wild beasts of the field. He mentions that with his own unaided hand he slew a lion and also a bear, when they came out against his flock, beating them to death in open conflict with his club (1 Sam. 17:34, 35). while David, in the freshness of ruddy youth, was thus engaged with his flocks, samuel paid an unexpected visit to Bethlehem, having been guided thither by divine direction (1 Sam. 16:1-13). there he offered up sacrifice, and called the elders of israel and Jesse's family to the sacrificial meal. among all who appeared before him he failed to discover the one he sought. david was sent for, and the prophet immediately recognized him as the chosen of God, chosen to succeed Saul, who was now departing from the ways of God, on the throne of the kingdom. He accordingly, in anticipation, poured on his head the anointing oil. david went back again to his shepherd life, but "the spirit of the lord came upon david from that day forward," and "the spirit of the lord departed from Saul" (1 Sam. 16:13, 14). not long after this david was sent for to soothe with his harp the troubled spirit of Saul, who suffered from a strange melancholy dejection. He played before the king so skilfully that saul was greatly cheered, and began to entertain great affection for the young shepherd. after this he went home to Bethlehem. but he soon again came into prominence. the armies of the philistines and of israel were in battle array in the valley of Elah, some 16 miles south-west of Bethlehem; and david was sent by his father with provisions for his three brothers, who were then fighting on the side of the king. On his arrival in the camp of Israel, david (now about twenty years of age) was made aware of the state of matters when the champion of the Philistines, goliath of Gath, came forth to defy Israel. david took his sling, and with a well-trained aim threw a stone "out of the brook," which struck the giant's forehead, so that he fell senseless to the ground. david then ran and slew him, and cut off his head with his own sword (1 Sam. 17). the result was a great victory to the Israelites, who pursued the philistines to the gates of Gath and Ekron. david's popularity consequent on this heroic exploit awakened saul's jealousy (1 Sam. 18:6-16), which he showed in various ways. He conceived a bitter hatred toward him, and by various stratagems sought his death (1 Sam. 18-30). the deep-laid plots of the enraged king, who could not fail to observe that david "prospered exceedingly," all proved futile, and only endeared the young hero the more to the people, and very specially to Jonathan, saul's son, between whom and david a life-long warm friendship was formed. A fugitive. To escape from the vengeance of Saul, david fled to Ramah (1 Sam. 19:12-18) to Samuel, who received him, and he dwelt among the sons of the prophets, who were there under Samuel's training. It is supposed by some that the sixth, seventh, and eleventh psalms were composed by him at this time. this place was only 3 miles from the residence of Saul, who soon discovered whither the fugitive had gone, and tried ineffectually to bring him back. jonathan made a fruitless effort to bring his father to a better state of mind toward david (1 Sam. 20), who, being made aware of the fact, saw no hope of safety

(1.) david took from the Jebusites the fortress of mount Zion. He "dwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David" (1 Chr. 11:7). this was the name afterwards given to the castle and royal palace on mount Zion, as distinguished from jerusalem generally (1 kings 3:1; 8:1), It was on the south-west side of Jerusalem, opposite the temple mount, with which it was connected by a bridge over the Tyropoeon valley. (2) bethlehem is called the "city of David" (Luke 2:4, 11), because it was david's birth-place and early home (1 Sam. 17:12).

no problems; no worries (rhyming slang; from "David Murray's" - a well-known furniture store in Adelaide, SA)

David(c.1005–970 BC) ( ; Arabic: داوود or داود, ; "beloved") was the second king of the united Kingdom of Israel. He is depicted as a righteous king—although not without fault—as well as an acclaimed warrior, musician and poet (he is traditionally credited with the authorship of many of the Psalms). his life and reign, as recorded in the Hebrew bible's books of Samuel (from I samuel 16 onwards) and Chronicles, have been of central importance to Jewish and Western culture.


To dream of David, of bible fame, denotes divisions in domestic circles, and unsettled affairs, will tax heavily your nerve force.
