Da'ud (David) BEN YIŠAI King in Palestine (1085-1015BC)

  • Born: Abt 1105 B.C.

   General Notes:

The successor to King Saul, who was the first official king of a united Kingdom of Israel, David's forty-year reign lasted from roughly 1005 BC to 965 BC. The account of his life and rule are recorded in the Old Testament Books of Samuel and the first of the two Books of Chronicles.

Despite the fact that he displeased God on a few occasions, he is regarded by the Bible - and most Jews and Christians - as having been the most righteous of all the ancient kings of Israel. He is also unusual in that he was an acclaimed warrior, monarch, musician and poet. In fact, David is believed to have authored many of the psalms recorded in the Old Testament book of Psalms.

The Bible states that God was ultimately so pleased with David, that He promised that the Davidic line would endure forever (2 Samuel 7:12-16). Judaism believes that the Jewish Messiah will be a direct descendant of King David, and Christianity traces the lineage of Jesus back to him.
