 (2 Samuel) Free From Bitterness by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 1  
Description: David was in Ziklag, a city in Philistia, when an Amalekite comes from the battle between Israel and the Philistines, he tells David that Saul and his sons are dead on the field of battle and that Israel has retreated from before them, David enquires how he knows Saul is dead and the Amalekite tells him that while he was in the battle he saw Saul fall upon his own sword and call him over to him and ask that he would kill him, so the Amalekite stands over Saul and kills him, this was a lie to gain favour with David. But he showed David the crown and bracelet that he had taken from Saul after his death, David was very grieved to hear the news and wrote a lamentation about Saul and Jonathan, this shows how David was free from the bitterness that would have ensnared his heart had he dwelt upon how Saul had wronged him. But David asks the Amalekite why he was not afraid to kill the anointed king of Israel and when the he didn't answer David had him killed for boasting over the dead.

 (2 Samuel) David's Triumph by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 8  
Description: David wrought great victories against the enemy nations around him, as he was a man afte Gods own heart he was at peace with the people of God and at war with the enemies of God, unlike Saul before him. He defeated the Philistines who were an old and stubborn enemy, just as Satan is an old and stubborn enemy of ours, but the Lord will win the resounding victory. He defeated Moab with great severity as much severity as we are, through Christ, to defeat the sin that is in our lives. He also defeated the Syrian alliance who had come against him and so Christ shall one day utterly defeat the alliance of sin, the flesh and the devil. We can learn from this passage of scripture that David defeated his enemies that were all around him just as the Lord desires to defeat all the enemies that surround us.

 (2 Samuel) King David in Triumph by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 5  
Description: Ishbosheth, the pretender to the throne, was dead and all the tribes of Israel now came to accept David as king over them. David was a man of the people, he was already recognised as a great leader and a man anointed of the Lord, and thus he set his sights on capturing Jerusalem for his capital, the people in Jerusakem mocked and taunted him, but David and his men heroically captured the city. David was recognised as a great ruler by the surrounding nations and they sent skilled craftsmen to work for him. But during this time of great success David took more wives and concubines to himself which would lead to great problems later. The Philistines then came and invaded Israel, so David enquired of the Lord what he should do and the Lord told him to meet them head on, so David won a great victory. But they came again and this time the Lord told David to go behind them and wait for Him to go out before them, which David did and again won a great victory.

 (2 Samuel) More Anointing, More War by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 2-3:1  
Description: David enquires of the Lord as to what he should do, so the Lord tells David to go up to Hebron, when David got there he was anointed king over the tribe of Judah, and he blessed the people of Jabesh Gilead for retreiving the body of Saul and his sons. But the people of Israel anointed Ishbosheth, one of Sauls sons, king over Israel, Abner, commander of Sauls army, then led the army of Israel against Davids men who were led by Joab, Joab won the fight and the army of Israel had to flee. Asahel, who was very quick, chased after Abner as they retreated, but after several warning to stop Abner killed himand carried on retreating. The army of Israel gathered for one last stand and Abner cried to Joab to end the fighting, Joab agreed and they all left peacably, but this agreement only meant that the war between the house of Saul and the house of David went on for a long time instead of being ended quickly.

 (2 Samuel) Believing and Living by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 3  
Description: David took many wives to himself over the course of his life, and yet this was wrong in the eyes of God and is reflected in the trouble that came to him from his family. Ishbosheth, the pretender to the throne, accuses Abner, his military commander, of taking Sauls concubine for himself, this enrages Abner and he deicdes to no longer support Ishbosheth but defect to Davids side. When Abner comes to him David asks for Michal, his first wife, to be returned to him, so Abner went and took Michal from where she was and brought her back to David. Abner then went aroung Israel declaring that everyone should recognise David as being the rightful king and there was peace, but only for a short time. Joab, Davids military commander, returns from a campaign to hear that Abner, who had killed Joabs brother Asahel on the field of battle, has made peace with David. So he requests to see Abner and when he came Joab killed him, because of his brother, but when David heard about this he was greatly saddened and condemned Joab and all his house for this.

 (2 Samuel) How to Love an Enemy by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 4  
Description: When Ishbosheth hears that Abner is dead he gets very afraid and panics, and rightly so as two assasins come to his house and kill him whilst he is still in bed. They took his head and went to David to show him how they had kiled his 'enemy' and sought a reward from him. But David was sickened by what they had done and because of the evil in their hearts, so he rebuked them for killin Ishbosheth, calling Saul 'David's enemy' and claiming they had carried out the will of the Lord. But David did not consider Saul his enemy so he commanded that the two assains should be killed, as a statement that no one should attack the house of Saul anymore. David then went and took the head of Ishbosheth and buried it with Abner. This showed how David was a man after the heart of the Lord as he forgave his enemies and even loved them.

 (2 Samuel) The Kindness of God by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 9  
Description: David asks if there is anyone left frm the house of Saulthat he might show to them the kindness of God, so he calls a servant of Saul to him and aks if there is anyone, the servant informs him of Mephibosheth who was the son of Jonathan, David's close friend, but the servant also informs David that Mephibosheth is lame in both his feet thus posing no threat to David's rule over Israel. David send for Mephibosheth anyway, and he must have been terrified that David would kill him as he had been in hiding for years, but David did indeed show to him the kindness of God as he gave him back all Saul's land, said that he would not kill him, and told him that from that day on he would be welcome to eat at the table of the king. This of course is a wonderful picture of our relationship to the Lord Jesus who has forgiven us, given us back more than we lost in Adam and invites us always to dine at His table, with Him. What a God we serve.

 (2 Samuel) The Army of Mighty Men by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 10  
Description: David hears that the king of Amon has died, so he sends a diplomatic envoy to the new king Amon in order to offer the hand of friendship, this is not weel received. The ambassadors are humilitaed and abused and thrust out of Amon, this was an act of war and the Amon knew it, so they amases their army and an army of mercinaries from Syria, to make war with Israel. David send out his whole army of mighty men led by Joab to fight the battle, but the army become surrounded. Joab though instead of surrendering as was usually the case in these type of encounters, gives the army a rousing speech, reminds them of what they are fighting for and that the Lord is with them, thus they attacked and the Amonites and Syrians retreated. Joab led the army back home instead of wiping them out, but the enemy re-assembled and came against Israel again, this time however David personally led the army and the Syrians were utterly defeated.

 (2 Samuel) A Not-So-Sudden Fall by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 11:1-5  
Description: This is one of the saddest chapters in the whole of the Old Testament. David again sent his army out to do battle without going with them himself, and while they were away David took a strole one afternoon on the balcony of his palace. He probably had no idea thet Bathsheba would be washing herself at that time and yet when he saw her he was transfixed, he had for years indulged in this forbidden passion in marrying more than one wife and that had laid the groundwork for what was about to take place. He asked his servants who this woman was only to be told that not only was she the daughter and granddaughter of some of Davids closest advisers, but was also married to one of the mighty men in Davids army. So he knew that her husband was away and thought he could get away with adultery, so they had a 'one night stand' but Bathsheba became pregnant.

 (2 Samuel) Caught in the Trap of Sin by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 11:6-27  
Description: Bathsheba was now pregnant by an adulterous relationship with David, and David knew it so he endeavoured to hide his sin by calling Bathsheba's husband Uriah back from the war. David asked Uriah how the battle was going and told him to go home and relax with his wife, but Uriah was a man of great integrity and refused to go home to be comfortable with his wife while Israel was at war. So David sent him back to the front with a note for Joab his commander to place Uriah in the heat of the battle and withdraw from him, sentencing Uriah to death. Joab obeyed the command of David and Uriah was killed in battle, David later took Bathsheba to be his wife in order to cover up what he had done but this displeased the Lord. David had ignored the warnings of the Lord and temptation had turned to lust, lust to adultery, adultery to deception and finally into murder, this is how our sin if unchecked can uncontollably accumulate until it utterly blinds us and only the Lord can save us.

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 13  
Description: After the incident with David and the wife of Urriah, Davids family life beamce very disfunctional, thre of Davids children were Amnon, his eldest and the next in line to the throne, Tamar, who some say was Davids only daughter, and Absalom who was brother to Tamar.

But when she arrived Amnon took her into the bedroom demanded everyone leave and then raped her, giving in totally to his lust. Tamar was devestated by this as after he had done this wicked act he wanted nothing more to do with her. Tamar left and went to the house of Absalom her brother who found out what had happened. David too found out but didn't chastise his son Amnon. From that day on Absalom hated Amnon, and waited 2 whole years before inviting him to a feast and having hiom killed for what he had done.

 (2 Samuel) Bringing Back the Banished by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 14:1-17  
Description: Absalom the son of David was in exhile, by his own choice and also by the decision of his father. But Joab, David's chief general was suspicious of Absalom and wanted him back in Jerusalem so he could keepa close eye on him. Joab got a woman to come before David and pretend to be a poor widow and tell him a story that was almost exactly the sameas the situation the king was in with Absalom. So after hearing the story David deicdes to pardon the womans son who was in the place of Absalom, at this the woman confronts David as to why he has suspended justice for her son but not for his own. In this is a great lesson that we should be forgiving of those who have personally wronged us. But the justice of the Lord towards mankind was not suspended for the sake of reconcilliation as our punishment was laid upon the shoulder of the Lord Jesus when He was on the cross, thus justice was satisfied and not suspended.

 (2 Samuel) Counselors and Comfort by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 16:15-17:29  
Description: David send Hushai the Archite to spy on his son Absalom who had set himself up as king in David's place. Absalom in the meatime is asking advise from Ahithophel who was the wisest man in Israel at the time, Ahithophel advises Abslaom to burn his bridges with his father the king by systematically raping 10 of the kings concubines whom David had left behind, but not only this but to do it on the roof of the palace so everyone knew what he was doing. Absalom followed this advice. Ahithophel, who hated David due to the fact that he was Bathsehba's grandfather, then asked Absalom if he could lead a band of men immediately and go after David and kill him, this was a brilliant plan and had it not been for the intervention of the Lord would surely have meant the end of David. Amazingly though Absaom asked for a second oppinion from Hushai the Archite, he appealed to Absalom's vanity and advised him to amass a great army and lead them out to battle, thus buying the king time, Absalom agreed with Hushai's plan and Ahithophel knowing it would lead to ruin returned home and hanged himself as he knew David would succeed and come after him.

 (2 Samuel) The Death of Absalom by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 18:1-19:8  
Description: David and Absalom prepaired to go to war against each other, David as we know was an extremely experienced and war tested military leader, Absalom was not. They went out to battle and Absalom lost in a terrible way, he tried to wage war against the man after God's own heart and by implication God Himself and failed totally. As he fled the battle on a donkey Absalom was caught in the branches of a tree in the forest nearby and hung their helpless, until one of Davids men found and returned to Joab to tell him he had found Absalom, Joab went straight there and piereced him through, despite David's command to leave Absalom alone, Joab knew that David would not punish Absalom even for all he had done and so disobeyed a direct order. Messengers came to David with knews of the war but David was only concerned with whether Absalom was alive or not and when he found out that he was slain he mourned deeply.

 (2 Samuel) Fighting to Keep Unity by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 20  
Description: Rebellion started in Israel when Sheba declared that he would not have David as a king over him, and managed to lead away all Israel except the tribe of Judah who reminaed loyal to the king. This is a testament to how fallen man will rebel against God-ordained authority at every opurtunity he can get. So David aksed his new chief general Amasa to amas an army in three days and pursue Sheba, but Amasa had trouble amasing the army so David sent Abishai and the palace guard with Joab to pursue Sheba. As they were pursuing Amasa caught up with them but Joab killed him, probably due to Amasa being Absaloms chief commander when he was alive. So the guards carried on and came to the city of Abel where Sheba now was thinking himself to be safe. Joab and all the men laid seige to the city, but a wise woman from the city asked Joab why he was laying seige to the city, JOab told her tha he would leave once he knew Sheba was dead so she consulted the people of the city and they killed Sheba and threw his head over the wall and Joab and the army returned to Jerusalem.

 (2 Samuel) Settling an Old Debt by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 21:1-14  
Description: There was a famine, probably caused by drought, in the land of Israel, David enquired of the Lord as to why, and the Lord revealed to him that it was a judgement because of Saul's massacre of the Gibeonites 40 years previously. In the days of Joshua Israel had made a covenant with the Gibeonites not to wipe them out as they were going through Canaan, and the Lord expected Israel to keep this promise. So David met with the Gibeonites and asked them how this could be put right, the Gibeonites asked for 7 men from the house of Saul that they might execute them. David agreed and delivered to them 7 men whom the Gibeonites hung together to show they were accursed of God. But the mother of 2 of the men would not allow their bodies to be desecrated by being eaten by the wild animals, so she kept a vigil over them until the rains came and she knew that their deaths had not been in vain.

 (2 Samuel) The Grateful Retrospect by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 2 Samuel 21:15-22:51  
Description: David now in his latter years could no longer go out to battle in the way he once could, but the lord blessed the slayer of Goliath by raising up 4 more 'giant killers' after him. Chapter 22 is a psalm of David written at the end of his life much like Psalm 18, here we can see Davids heart overflowing with adoration and praise to God, he exaults the Lord with magestic title after magestic title, my Rock, my Fortress, my Deliverer... He priases God for His protection and how He would not allow David to be distressed and called all of creation to he him, for he knew that He delighted in him. Even though he had sinned greatly in his life, David knew that the Lord had put away and forgiven his sin, and that before the Lord he was righteous because of God's great mercy.
