davids-mighty-menDAVID NEARS the end of his life as our chronological study of the Old Testament continues. We read a number of psalms of repentance and thanksgiving, and recount the list of David’s mighty men of valor — and speculate on one of those odd bits of scripture referring to the “ariels” (rendered “lionlike men” in the KJV) of Moab slain by Benaiah the son of Jehoiada (2 Samuel 23:20).

Gilbert House Fellowship #82: Psalms 102-104; 2 Sam 5; 1 Chr 11-12

David Annointed KingDAVID’S CORONATION as king over all Israel is the focus of this week’s Old Testament study. We discuss the Mighty Men who served David, some of whom are described in language that makes them almost seem superhuman.

And we read several Psalms, one lament and two of thankfulness, which — since we are following a chronological reading order — are appropriate for the period of mourning for Saul and the rise of David to the kingship.
