David the King

2 Samuel 1 - 7 



Stories and songs about David's bravery traveled across the land. Soon King Saul became very jealous of him. He even tried to kill David, but God protected David.When Saul died, David became the new king of Israel. David led the Israelites through many victorious battles against their enemies. Before long, David conquered Jerusalem and it was called the City of David. He built a palace there. Everyone loved King David!The Israelites rejoiced when David and his men brought the Ark of God into the City of David. And King David danced on the streets, praising God!With all their enemies defeated, Israel enjoyed a time of peace. David loved God, and his greatest wish was to build a temple for God. But David didn't always obey God. So finally God told David that David's son would be the one to build God's temple.

David wrote many beautiful songs to God. Most were to praise God, but some were to say he was sorry. David loved to worship God with his songs.
