where in the Bible is the account of King David's death?
By the time the Deuteronomic History and the Book of Chronicles were written, Saul, David and Solomon, the principal kings of the United Monarchy, were just distant legends, and there are now two different biblical accounts of David's death and the succession of Solomon.
The Deuteronomic history follows the Absalom narrative with another uprising in 2 Samuel chapter 20, then the remainder of 2 Samuel has a group of miscellaneous chapters out of context, clearly later insertions. These chapters include a famine, killing of giants, a psalm, the purported last words of David and then a census undertaken by David. Removing chapters 21 to 24 leaves a coherent story line, from Absalom's attempted coup to Sheba's uprising, proof of David's senility when the aged king could no longer have sex with a beautiful virgin, Adonijah's attempted coup and then the anointment by the bed-ridden David of Solomon as king. Finally, in 1 Kings 2:10, David slept with his fathers and was buried in the city of David.
The Book of Chronicles omits the lengthy diversion about Absalom, the attempted coups and the Sheba uprising. More particularly, while still in apparent good health and not yet bed-ridden, David announced to the people of Israel that Yahweh had chosen Solomon to be his heir. So David prepared abundantly before his death (1 Chronicles 22:5). 1 Chronicles 29:28 finally tells us that David died in a good old age, full of days, riches and honour.
Starting at 1 Kings 2:1, it tells of King David's last conversations: 1 Kings 2:10,11: 'Then David lay down with his forefathers and was buried in the City of David. And the days that David had reigned over Israel were forty years. In He′bron he had reigned seven years, and in Jerusalem he had reigned thirty-three years.
hehe, king David is NOT a thing but a person in the bible he is the one who slain Goliath (the tallest warrior of their enemies) obviously he was a king by his name, king Solomon began to get jealous because of davids growing popularity, but to cut it short he is a biblical hero and a great king that made a few bad choices
"The period of Judges" refers to the era whose major events (for the Israelites) are narrated in the Book of Judges. Traditional chronology puts this era in 1244 to 878 BCE, while non-traditional opinions place it at an earlier time. The Book of Judges records those events in which some of the ancient Israelites began to sin (Judges 2:11), and were then persecuted by surrounding nations, as God had warned them (Deuteronomy ch.32). When the…
The biblical King David is famous for slaying the Philistine giant, Goliath, and for building a great empire that extended far to the north and east of Israel. The supposed reason David was accepted as king was his defeat in single combat of the Philistine giant Goliath, yet the author of Chronicles, which was a later rewrite of the Deuteronomic History, seems to have found this story so improbable that Chronicles does not even mention…
Yes, John was a military man, as was Batsheba's husband. In "Dear John" John goes away to war, King David is as equal to the man Savanna got married to and Batsheba is equal to Savannah. However, the man having cancer has nothing to do with King David's death because it happened so long ago we can't date King Davids cause of death.
