How many siblings does King David have?

King David's first six brothers are listed in 1 Chronicles 2:13-15: Eliab, Abinadab, Shimea, Nethanel, Raddai and Ozem. His other brother is not named anywhere in the Bible. Elsewhere, we learn that David had a brother named Elihu (1 Chr. 27:18), which may be the name of his seventh brother, or which may simply be a variant form of "Eliab." Also, the Bible speaks of "Shammah/Shimeah/Shimei" as David's brother, but all these are most likely variants of "Shimea" (without doubt this is the case with at least "Shammah" [1 Sam. 17:13]). If his seventh brother is not named in the genealogies, it may be because he died without children.

Did Abraham commit adultery with Hagar?

In Torah-practice, it was acceptable to have more than one wife.Abraham took Hagar to wife while he was still married to Sarah (Genesis ch.16). This was precisely in accord with contemporary custom and was done at Sarah's insistence, not at Abraham's initiative. Since God had promised that Abraham would become a father (Genesis 12) but had not yet promised Sarah that she would be a mother (Genesis 17), it seemed that the handmaiden, Hagar, could serve as a kind of surrogate childbearer for them and that this might be God's intent.

The entire social milieu portrayed in the Torah, once criticized as anachronistic, has been shown to be historically accurate, including customs of marriage, adoption, contracts, inheritance, purchases, utensils, modes of travel, people's names and titles, etc. Professor Gleason Archer Ph.D of Harvard University states: "In case after case where historical inaccuracy was alleged as proof of late and spurious authorship of the biblical documents, the Hebrew record has been vindicated by the results of recent excavation, and condemnatory judgment has been proved to be without foundation."

What were davids talents that brought him before the king?

God sends an evil spirit to torment Saul (1 Samuel 16:14) and his attendants suggest he send for David, a young warrior famed for his bravery and for his skill with the harp. Saul does so, and makes David one of his armor-bearers. From then on, "whenever the spirit from God came upon Saul, David would take his harp and play.
