A Survey of 2 Samuel
by William Arnold III
David Reigns Over Judah, 1-4
Saul had died at the close of 1 Samuel and David first learns of his death in the beginning of 2 Samuel. An Amalekite brings David Saul’s crown and bracelet, falsely claiming to have killed him and David has him put to death. He sings a song of lament for Saul and Jonathon. David is then made king of Judah and Saul’s son Ishbosheth is made king over Israel. Civil war breaks out between the two countries, but it is soon given up. Ishbosheth falsely accuses Abner, his general, of sleeping with his father’s concubine and so Abner leaves Ishbosheth to join David. However, he is murdered by Joab because he had killed Joab’s brother in time of war and so David mourns Abner’s death. Ishbosheth is later murdered and David has his murderers executed.
