05/21/2018 — 2 Samuel 22-23 and Psalm 57

In 2 Samuel 23:1 the author stated that these are the “Last words of David;” however they were not delivered on his death bed – they were just some of is last pronouncements.  And in Psalm 23:3-4 he, again, captures a magnificent word-picture that I wish more earthly leaders in the the worlds of business, politics, and other associations would apply:

The God of Israel spoke,
    the Rock of Israel said to me:
‘When one rules over people in righteousness,
    when he rules in the fear of God,
he is like the light of morning at sunrise
    on a cloudless morning,
like the brightness after rain
    that brings grass from the earth.’
