As God Promised

2 Samuel 5-10 describe the peak of David’s kingdom. In 2 Samuel 5, David conquers Jerusalem, the crown jewel of the Promised Land. Here also David establishes an effective administrative system and leads Israel to victory over all their enemies. 

David’s virtue is also showcased as he fulfills his commitment to Jonathan by caring for his fallen comrade’s only son, Mephibosheth. Most significantly, in a passage that has major implications for the Christian community, the Lord establishes an eternal covenant with David’s family line.

In these chapters David is also portrayed as the founder of the long-ago-prophesied worship center where the Lord would cause his name to dwell (Deuteronomy 12:5). It is in this section also that David brings the ark of the covenant to Jerusalem and initiates the practice of offering blood sacrifices to the Lord there.
