    Yes! And all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn't put the donkey back together again. He was a womanizer and had to go in exile.
    God blessed King David with a long and prosperous life. He survived a battle with a giant, multiple attempts by King Saul to murder him, various wars, and a coup led by one of his own sons. In the end, he died of old age. Scripture leaves no doubt that David was of sound mind when he died. Knowing his death was imminent, David was able to give support and guidance to his heir and successor. Despite his many faults, David was admired and respected as a hero by the people of Israel. His dedication to God, loyalty in the face of ill-treatment, courage in war, benevolence in conquest, and faithfulness in friendship were so extraordinary that he would forever be viewed as an ideal king and a man after God’s own heart.
    He is removed from court, and put in a subordinate command, which only extends his popularity, and brings him into more immediate contact with the mass of the people. This post was edited by CosmicWunderkind at September 25, 2020 10:49 AM MDT

    He also thrived in a power vacuum. Egypt had fallen, Assyria and Babylon had yet to rise. The fact that a ragtag band of barbarians (the Philistines) was able to seriously threaten it underlines how weak David's kingdom of Israel actually was.
    But once again this was a joke question that got taken seriously ...

    That particular item of news is not found in the King James version of the bible. Does it appear in some other translation, perhaps one that failed to flush properly, or did you scurrilously make it up to feed to those of whom one is born every minute?
