Daily Bible Reading:  2 Samuel 1-3

Book: 2 Samuel

Author: Unknown but not Samuel, since the events of the book take place after his death. Some suggest Abiathar the priest (15:35)

Date: Approximately 1010-970 BC, the reign of King David.

In ten words or less: David becomes Israel’s greatest king, but with major flaws.    

“From Know Your Bible, published by Barbour Publishing, Inc. Used by permission”

2 Samuel 1:9-10 (KJV) He said unto me again, Stand, I pray thee, upon me, and slay me: for anguish is come upon me, because my life is yet whole in me. So I stood upon him, and slew him, because I was sure that he could not live after that he was fallen: and I took the crown that was upon his head, and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them hither unto my lord.

1:1-10. Shortly after David returned to Ziklag (cf. 1 Sam. 27:6) from his successful punitive raid against the Amalekites (2 Sam. 1:1), he was met by a runner who had returned from Gilboa with the news of the death of Saul and his sons (vv. 2-4). When pressed for details, the messenger claimed that he had come on the wounded Saul (vv. 5-6), identified himself as an Amalekite (vv. 7-8), and when urged to do so by the king had mercifully put him to death (vv. 9-10). This man’s report, differing from the account in 1 Samuel 31:3-6, was fabricated. Perhaps he called himself an Amalekite to protect Saul from the charge that he asked a fellow Israelite to do the unthinkable—to kill his own king, the Lord’s anointed (cf. 2 Sam. 1:14, 16).
