CHAPTER, 1 CHRONICLES, CHAPTER 11)
ISRAEL ARMY OF BIBLE KING DAVID LESSON
THE MIGHTY MEN BIBLE STORY
Always nice to have you back! Last
time we met to share Daily Bread together, we had the pleasure of sharing one of David's
Psalms of praises!
As you may have guessed, since we're
fast approaching the end of our study of The Second Book of Samuel, David is
getting old. The author(s) therefore share with us the "last words of David."
These are probably not his dying words, but perhaps some of the last words he
wrote that were inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Don't forget David wasn't only the
king of Israel, but a Prophet of God. Jesus said so Himself that things were
written in the Psalms about Him, and David wrote most of the Psalms in the Bible.
And He said unto them,
These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that
all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and
in the Prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me.
ISRAEL ARMY OF BIBLE KING DAVID CREATED
THE MIGHTY MEN BIBLE BLESSING
When a person knows that they're nearing the end of their life, they usually say
or write things that are pretty important ... Things they want others to
remember or learn by. In these words of David, he begins by saying that the Holy
Spirit worked through him, and that he did hear God talk to him. He taught him
how to be a good king.
The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and His word was in my tongue. The God
of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men
must be just, ruling in the fear of God. And he shall be as the light of
the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the
tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.
Then David expresses that he doesn't
feel like he, and/or his family were not as pure as the light of the morning
without clouds and as tender grass after a rain, but that the Lord made an
awesome covenant with him concerning his family and the kingdom and that's what
saved him. That's what gave David inspiration and hope, and it was all he wanted, and the Lord helped him
not to want any more than that ...
Although my house be not so with God; yet He hath made with me an
everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure: for this is all my
salvation, and all my desire, although He make it (David's desire) not to

THE MIGHTY MEN BIBLE DISCUSSION
But, David also understood and
wanted to tell his loved ones, and us, that there are evil ones that are
impossible for men to deal with, but God will and they'll be cast out in the end
But the sons of Belial shall be all of them as thorns thrust away,
because they cannot be taken with hands: But the man that shall touch them
must be fenced with iron and the staff of a spear; and they shall be
utterly burned with fire in the same place.
Ever thought of writing some stuff down for your loved ones to read in the future? Why wait until your last days?
Certainly there is a deeper wisdom in our last days, because we finally see things more spiritually and the worldly
things that meant so much during our lives are put into perspective, but there
are plenty of valuable lessons that are in our hearts for our loved ones even
when we're young that we neglect to write down ... Because we're too busy. What a shame. Ask God for the time ...
Here's a verse from a Psalm to encourage you:
For the LORD God is a sun
and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will He
withhold from them that walk uprightly.

THE MIGHTY MEN BIBLE POWER
Next, the author(s) of this particular part of The Second Book of Samuel
thought it proper to mention David's mighty men. As we know from our study of
David's life, he had tens of thousands, probably hundreds of thousands of men
who fought under him.
Not like rulers of today who call the shots from a capital
building or a palace, he was out on the battlefield with the soldiers for most
of his life. He taught them. He had a select group of men that were his most
mighty men. You might call them David's disciples.
When you read this chapter, you
can almost imagine David talking to
Jehoshaphat (he was David's recorder),
saying, "Make sure you write about my fellas." (That's not to say that
Jehoshaphat was the author of any of the books of the Bible that include
accounts of David's life, but Jehoshaphat kept records of the events for David.
Sorry, didn't mean to ruin the mood getting technical, so let's get back in a
more reminiscent state of mind, shall we?)
When you read this chapter, you
can almost imagine David talking to
Jehoshaphat, saying, "Make sure you
write about my fellas."

THE MIGHTY MEN BIBLE LISTED
These are the names of David's mightiest
men. They were classified in three (let's call them) ranks:
The first three, the most heroic,
and earning the highest standing were Adino (who was the chief of these three),
Eleazar and Shammah. (In
Chronicles 11:11, Jashobeam is named as one of David's mighty men above
Eleazar, so Jashobeam and Adino may be one and the same.)
The next three who were of the
next highest standing than the rest were Abishai (who was the chief of these
three), Benaiah and ... Actually only two are named in this group, though it
clearly says that Abishai was chief among three.
Lastly, but still among

ISRAEL ARMY OF BIBLE KING DAVID BEST OF BEST
THE MIGHTY MEN BIBLE WARRIORS
You can open your Bible to this chapter and read some of the remarkable things
these fellas did ... They were pretty amazing. No wonder David referred to them
as his mighty men.
Not only were they mighty, but
their relationship with the king was that of close camaraderie. There's a
recollection of one of the times when David was taking cover at one of his
strongholds. The Philistines had a base in Bethlehem at the time, but they had
troops camped in the valley of Rephaim.
And David's three mightiest men went to David.
Remember, David's hometown was Bethlehem, and while he was hiding he made a
remark to the effect of "Oh, if I could only have a drink from the well of
Bethlehem!" Now, here's loyalty ... This wasn't an order or a command, it was a
musing of David's, of the water he had loved in the past. Well, these three
mighty fellas broke through the army of the Philistines, drew water from the
well of Bethlehem and brought it back to David.
But David couldn't drink it
because those guys risked their lives to get it for him, so he poured it out as
an offering to the Lord.
ISRAEL ARMY OF BIBLE KING DAVID CONCLUSION
THE MIGHTY MEN BIBLE SUMMARY
How many other amazing things
happened throughout history that haven't been written? Well, here's what John
said concerning the life of Jesus ...
And there are also many other
things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I
suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should
be written. Amen.
Tomorrow is our last chapter of The
Second Book of Samuel. But, don't you believe for one minute that it will be
without adventure! You'll have to come on back soon so we can share more
Daily Bread together. See you again soon!
