Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

King David (d. ca. 961 BC) was a prophet who ruled Israel and Judah for 39 years.


  • I grieve for you, Jonathan my brother;
    you were very dear to me.
    Your love for me was wonderful,
    more wonderful than that of women.
    • 2 Samuel 1:26 (TNIV)
  • Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: [...] The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine.
  • Thou comest to me with a sword, and with A spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. [...] And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with the sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hands.

    בני אבשלום
    מי יתן מותי אני תחתיך
    אבשלום בני בני

      Beni Abshalom!
      Mi yitten muthi ani thachteicha.

      • O my son Absalom, my son,
        my son Absalom!
        would God I had died for thee,
        O Absalom, my son, my son!
        • 2 Samuel 18:33 (KJV)
