The Book of the Reign of David
II Samuel 5: 4-5
David was 30 years old when he became king
and he reigned over Judah 7 years and six
months and in Jerusalem he reigned over all
Israel and Judah 33 years
The Structure:
David’s Triumphs – Chapter 1-12
David’s Troubles – Chapters 13-24
The Central Message is:
Triumph turned to Trouble through sin
II Samuel 3:1
II Samuel 5:1-5
II Samuel 6:23
Why do you think Michal was
so aloof, so cold, to David?
The Davidic Covenant
Chapter 7:8-16
The Divine Confirmation of the
throne in Israel
The Perpetuation of the Davidic Rule – verses 11-16
House or posterity – verses 11-13
Throne or royal authority verse 13
Kingdom or sphere of rule – verses 13-16
All of the above are secured forever
Psalms 89:3-4;20-37 is a confirmation of the Davidic
It would be unconditional because it
would be fulfilled in the Messiah
Acts 2:29-31
This was a sure prophecy of Christ
First prophecy was made to Adam
Genesis 3:15
The second to Abraham
Genesis 22:18
Genesis 49:10
II Samuel 8:6b and 14b
“The Lord gave David victory

Humble yourselves, therefore,
under God’s mighty hand, that he
may lift you up in due time

gift of God is eternal life
