David: Shepherd, Psalmist, King

By F.B. Meyer

$7.99 David

Category: Paperback, F.B. Meyer

The character and life of David are supremely fascinating, not only to holy souls whose deepest thoughts have been expressed in his unrivaled psalms, but to all men: because of their humanness; their variety; their sharply constrasted experiences; their exhibition of traits of generosity and courage which always elicit admiration. The author states that while sketching every period of his life, he has concentrated on those passages which trace the steps by which the shepherd became the king. It was in these that his character was formed, his sweetest psalms composed, and those manifold experiences encountered which enabled him to interpret and utter the universal heart of man.

Sweet singer of the world; ancestor of Christ; founder of a dynasty of kings; a prophet, inspired and taught, as the Apostle Peter tells us, by the Holy Spirit; the type and precursor of him who, though his Soon, was also his Lord; the man after God's own heart, who "did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, and turned not aside from anything that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite." So long as time lasts, David must always enlist affection and command respect.
