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 ...
