Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

April 6 - Morning

"In the course of time, David inquired of the Lord.

'Shall I go up to one of the towns of Judah?' he asked.

The Lord said, 'Go up.'

David asked, 'Where shall I go?'

'To Hebron,' the Lord answered.

So David went up there with his two wives, Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail, the widow of Nabal of Carmel. David also took the men who were with him, each with his family, and they settled in Hebron and its towns. Then the men of Judah came to Hebron, and there they anointed David king over the tribe of Judah."

- Second Samuel 2:1-4

David is Anointed in Hebron by the Men of Judah    

The Lord had anointed David as the next king of Israel, but how this would play out still remained a mystery. David knew the destination, but he did not know the course. But, along with that, David did know the procedure to follow and the methods to implement to patiently discover the course that God would revealed it to him.

David called for Abiathar, the sole survivor of Saul’s slaughter of the priests at Nob, to bring the Ephod that held the Urim and Thummim. Together David, the man anointed to be king, and Abiathar, the priest, enquired of the Lord for direction towards the destination the Lord had set for them.

It should be noted that Saul had also been given a destination, but his refusal to honor the Word of the Lord had caused him to follow his own directions which ultimately led him away from the Lord’s destination. David does not want to make this same mistake.

The first step toward the kingship was to simply return to Judah, and the Lord added, “To Hebron” in Judah. So David, his family and his men went to Hebron. Hebron was the capital of the land belonging to tribe of Judah, which was David’s family’s tribe.

Once David was there the men of Judah came to anoint David to be king over their tribe. The other eleven tribes were still shaking on politically unstable ground with no military strength available for them to regain their footing. The death of their King Saul, the confusion on who would succeed him and the fact that they had been completely overrun by Philistine forces unraveled any organization the northern tribes had previously established. Many of the people had fled to the east side of the Jordan to escape.

Samuel had privately and secretly anointed David in his youth for God, but now in Hebron at the age of thirty David is publicly recognized and anointed by the men of his tribe. David has stepped into the early phase of the Lord’s plan for David.

  Christian Quote from Church History

“Either a supreme mind has always existed and created matter and the universe at a specific point in time, or matter is eternal and formed the universe by itself.”
- David A. Noebel, Understanding the Times.

Something to Ponder??

Dante Alighieri wrote an allegorical poem in Italian called “The Divine Comedy” in 1321. Dante’s book is presented in three parts:
(1) “inferno” where Dante is escorted through the nine levels encircling hell by the Roman poet Virgil. Interestingly, Dante finds the pope of his day in in Hell!
(2) “Purgatory” which details Dante’s climb up nine tiers
of a mountain where souls work off sins before
entering Paradise.
(3) “Paradise” is viewed by Dante as a woman Beatrice and Bernard of Clairvaux escort him through the
nine circular layers
of heaven to meet a variety
of saints living there.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Yamin (Hb) – Right Hand (Eng) – yamin is the Hebrew word that means “right,” “right hand,” and “south” since that is the direction of the right hand when facing East. Yamin speaks of the right hand of the body, but is also used to indicate strength and authority and high standing. Yamin is the second part of the name ben-yamin, or Benjamin. Yamin is used 137x throughout the entire Old Testament including Genesis 13:9; Exodus 15:6; Lamentations 2:3-4.


Jeremiah 39:3 says that Nebuchadnezzer’s chief officer, Nebo-sarsekim entered Jerusalem in July of 586 and sat in the Middle Gate when Jerusalem fell to the Babylonians. Nebo-Sarsekim’s name and his title “chief eunuch” (or, “chief officer”) is preserved in a cuneiform tablet written in 595 BC, nine years before the events in Jeremiah 39.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I know the Lord's destination for my life? Do I know the course that I will need to take?
I will live by faith and be obedient as I set my eye on the destination and
my feet on the course that God reveals and makes available.

"A troublemaker and a villain,
    who goes about with a corrupt mouth, who winks maliciously with his eye,
    signals with his feet
    and motions with his fingers, who plots evil with deceit in his heart—
    he always stirs up conflict."

- Proverbs 6:12-14
