David was the ideal Old Testament king, remembered for centuries by the Israelites as the greatest leader. Every other king would be deemed as good or evil (most were the latter) based on how they stacked up against David. They longed for another Messiah like David: a skilful shepherd, valiant warrior, a man of good character and a faithful worshiper. The story of David is in 1 and 2 Samuel offers the longest and most in-depth portrait of any biblical character. His biography portrays him as the model (though imperfect) leader: submissive to God and humble in success, conflict, victory and sin; as such he is the forerunner of the gospel of an even greater King who would come to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.
1 Lord, how many are my foes!
How many rise up against me!
2 Many are saying of me,
‘God will not deliver him.’
3 But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4 I call out to the Lord,
and he answers me from his holy mountain.
5 I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
6 I will not fear though tens of thousands
assail me on every side.
7 Arise, Lord!
Deliver me, my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
8 From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.
