<< 2 Samuel 22 19 >>



  • Psalms 71:20-21
    You have sent many bitter troubles my way. But you will give me new life. Even if I’m almost in the grave, you will bring me back.You will honor me more and more. You will comfort me once again.
  • Psalms 118:10-13
    The nations were all around me. But by the Lord’ s power I destroyed them.They were around me on every side. But by the Lord’ s power I destroyed them.They attacked me like swarms of bees. But they were burned up as quickly as thorns in a fire. By the Lord’ s power I destroyed them.I was pushed back and about to be killed. But the Lord helped me.
  • Psalms 23:4
    Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid. You are with me. Your shepherd’s rod and staff comfort me.
  • 1 Samuel 19 11-1 Samuel 19 17
    Saul sent some men to watch David’s house. He told them to kill David the next morning. But David’s wife Michal warned him. She said,“ You must run for your life tonight. If you don’t, tomorrow you will be killed.”So Michal helped David escape through a window. He ran and got away.Then Michal got a statue of a god. She laid it on David’s bed. She covered it with clothes. And she put some goat hair at the place where David’s head would have been.Saul sent the men to capture David. But Michal told them,“ He’s sick.”Then Saul sent the men back to see David. He told them,“ Bring him up here to me in his bed. Then I’ll kill him.”But when the men entered, the only thing they found in the bed was the statue. Some goat hair was at the place where David’s head would have been.Saul said to Michal,“ Why did you trick me like this? Why did you help my enemy escape?” Michal told him,“ He said to me,‘ Help me get away. If you don’t, I’ll kill you.’ ”

    Those who passed by shouted at Jesus and made fun of him. They shook their headsand said,“ So you are going to destroy the temple and build it again in three days? Then save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!”In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders made fun of him.“ He saved others,” they said.“ But he can’t save himself! He’s the king of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross! Then we will believe in him.He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him. He’s the one who said,‘ I am the Son of God.’ ”In the same way the rebels who were being crucified with Jesus also made fun of him.

    Then Absalom sent messengers secretly to all the tribes of Israel. They said,“ Listen for the sound of trumpets. As soon as you hear them, say,‘ Absalom has become king in Hebron.’ ”Absalom had taken 200 men from Jerusalem with him to Hebron. He had invited them to be his guests. They went without having any idea what was going to happen.While Absalom was offering sacrifices, he sent for Ahithophel. Ahithophel was David’s adviser. He came to Absalom from Giloh, his hometown. The number of people who followed Absalom kept growing. So he became more and more able to carry out his plans against David.A messenger came and spoke to David. He told him,“ The hearts of the Israelites are turned toward Absalom.”
