The apparent wordplay of Bathsheba bathing in the story of David and Bathsheba in 2 Samuel 11 is purely an artifact of English translation. In the original Hebrew, the "Bath" in "Bathsheba" has no connection at all with the word translated "bathing" in some translations of 2 Samuel 11:2. The Hebrew name בַּת־שֶׁבַע (bath-sheba) is a compound word composed ...

Healthy human hair can absorb 30% of its weight in water. This gal's hair weighs 25lbs when wet. This analysis by a skeptic offers some details about average human hair. (Read the comments, too.) According to his calculations, 29 years' growth of hair (for an "average" human) could weigh that much. If Absalom was indeed unusually locked, his numbers could ...

David is from the tribe of Judah. This can be found in Matthew 1. See verses 2-6a: Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers, Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar, Perez the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Ram, Ram the father of ...

As usual, my answer is long-winded, but it is, I hope, worth reading nevertheless. In answering many such questions, we need to take the long view, so to speak, and treat an important issue such as this one in the context of the entire canon of Scripture, which we today--unlike the saints of old--have the privilege of possessing in its fullness. Did ...

No one could know for sure what David knew or was thinking when he wrote, for example, Psalms 22 (one of my favorite) which can clearly be taken as entirely prophetic of Christ, but also refects David's own personal experiences. Jesus quoted (part of) verse one from the cross, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?", and the soldiers fulfilled verse 18, ...

1 Chronicles 20:5 records the same event. However, it states that it was the brother of Goliath. Other translations, such as the NIV, show the reference in 2 Samuel 21:19 as being the brother of Goliath as well. It most likely is just dependent on the translator of the time.

The Messiah and Joseph's genealogy? Both Matthew and Luke record the genealogy of Yeshua from different perspectives. Matthew's gospel gives us the legal lineage of Yeshua, while Luke gives us the bloodline. Matthew's focus is on Yeshua the son of David, the son of Abraham; thus the lineage of Yeshua in Matthew's gospel runs forward from Abraham, ...

Psalms is a collection of songs written by many people, compiled latter by some unknown editor. Though David wrote many songs, he did not write all the songs. Some songs were written before David and some after him. The Psalms were written by numerous people over 1,000 years of Israel 's history. Some of the Psalms were written as far back as the ...

I believe David would have been experienced enough to know when he is under the Spirit of inspiration. However, I'm not aware of any verse of him stating this directly, but then again, neither do most of God's prophet and apostles. However, it is not just Christians who quote David as prophetically applicable towards Jesus. Jesus did so Himself and even ...

Joseph's lineage descended from Solomon according to the following passage: Matthew 1:6-7 (NASB) 6 Jesse was the father of David the king. David was the father of Solomon by Bathsheba who had been the wife of Uriah. 7 Solomon was the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asa. Joseph was also descended from a ...

Lets take a look at the Passage of Scripture and see if we might determine just what happened. 1st Chronicles 13:5 through 12 KJV So David gathered all Israel together, from Shihor of Egypt even unto the entering of Hemath, to bring the ark of God from Kirjathjearim. And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kirjathjearim, which belonged ...

The Asaphites that handled the worship service, possibly Levites and belonging to the priesthood, are some of those who wrote Psalms for worship other than David. Moses also wrote some Psalms, long before David. All the Psalms, written by David or others, were inspired by the Holy Spirit and therefore is the ultimate author of them all. All scripture is ...

What made Hebron special? There are a number of reasons. Because God chose it! God's having chosen Hebron made Hebron special to God, and thus to David. God always knows best. Always. God sometimes tells us to go to go in a specific direction or to places that simply do not make sense to us. That is His prerogative, and our response should be ...

Unfortunately, there's no contextual verse where God says to David "...and this is why I want you to go blah blah blah." Therefore we must infer what the reason is based on the surrounding context and circumstances. We know, from the text, that David had just finished doing battle. We also read that at the time all of Israel was under one King, Saul, who ...

From 1 Chronicles 22: David said to Solomon: “My son, I had it in my heart to build a house for the Name of the Lord my God. But this word of the Lord came to me: ‘You have shed much blood and have fought many wars. You are not to build a house for my Name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in my sight. But you will have a son who will be a man ...

As already answered, "son of David" was hinting "messiah", numerous prophesies predicted the messiah would come from line of David. To add - jews had both biological and legal versions of heir/descendant/"son of David"... for example if a man died without having an heir it was recommended that his brother or other close relative marry his widowed wife and ...
