Discuss 2 Samuel 3

    1 Samuel 14:49, 1 Samuel 18:20-28, 1 Samuel 19:11-18, 1 Samuel 22:1,5, 1 Samuel 23:13-14,24,29, 1 Samuel 24, 1 Samuel 25:44,

    2 Samuel 3:12-16, 2 Samuel 6:15-23,

    * 1 Samuel 6:23,

    Note : 2 Samuel 21, vrs 8 "she brought up" didn't say bore, begot, or birthed. 1 Samuel 18:19, looks like she "brought up" her sister Merab's sons.

    Hopefully these are helpful.

    Joab serving King David : 2 Samuel 11:14-25, in context: 2 Samuel 11, 2 Samuel 14, 2 Samuel 24:4,8,9,10,11,12,13, 1 Chronicles 21:4-5,

    1 Chronicles 26:27-28, 1 Chronicles 27:24,

    Joab going outside of King David's orders, but for the good of David & Israel? 2 Samuel 18, 2 Samuel 19:1-8, 2 Samuel 24:1-3,

    1 Chronicles 21:3, 1 Chronicles 21:6,

    As Chris stated revenge, Joab had went after before: 1 Chronicles 11:6-8, 1 Chronicles 11:20, 2 Samuel 3:24-28, 2 Samuel 3:30,

    1 Kings 1,

    1 Kings 2:5-6, 1 Kings 2:22, 28-34,

    Hopefully this is useful in your study

    We don't know who Daniel's parents were. The Daniel of 1 Chronicles 3:1; 2 Samuel 3:3 - Chileab = Daniel, was a son of King David, but he was born about 400 years before the Prophet Daniel.

    I take it to believe "yea", may not be him rejoicing but even that, has scripture backing Philippians 4:4-9, James 1:2-4, 1 John 4:18,

    even if we walk in/near death we should not fear because GOD promises to be with us (that trust in HIM) Deuteronomy 31:8, Hebrews 13:5-6, John 14:16-21, Psalm 139:1-24, Psalms 37:40,

    The rod; Proverbs 13:24, Job 21:9, Proverbs 29:15, Lamentations 3:1, many times references discipline, correction: Proverbs 22:15, Proverbs 23:14, Proverbs 3:12, Hebrews 12:4-8-11, Staff: Hebrews 11:21, Zechariah 8:4, Exodus 21:19, Numbers 22:27, 2 Samuel 3:29, Judges 6:21

    Hopefully these scriptures help you with the HOLY Spirit to understand deeper. John 14:26, James 1:5

    I'm not sure if David knew Joab killed him. I don't think so for he said God will bring justice to Abner's death. It was wrong for Joab to kill him when there was truce between David and Abner. That's why I think David mourned him that he was killed foolishly and not by honor.

    No. He wasn't. In fact, he said in 2 Samuel 11:8, "and I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given thee such and such things."

    In the very next verse, he makes it very clear that he was angry because David had "despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight" by having Uriah killed and taking his wife. This was the word of the LORD spoken by Nathan the prophet. But he probably wasn't too happy about David's committing adultery with her before that, either.

    Neither the LORD (God, the Father) nor Jesus EVER condemned any man at any time for having more than one wife, although I'm sure there were plenty around that did, even in the time of Jesus. There are still polygamous marriages in some countries even today.

    What Jesus said was that if a man put one wife away (divorced her) to marry another, except if she had committed fornication, he was guilty of adultery and causing her and any future husband she might have to commit adultery. You have to read all accounts of his discourse on divorce to see that he's talking about putting her away in order to marry another. These are found in Matthew 5:31&32, Matthew 19:9, Mark 10:11&12, and Luke 16:18. So we see that, if a man had five wives, he was okay, but he could not put one away so that he could marry another. Perhaps this meant so he could afford to marry another. I don't know. But he could put her away for fornication. Why didn't he say adultery? Because adultery carried an automatic death sentence in those days. No divorce was necessary.

    Too, Mark 10:12 shows that a woman could also put away her husband, but was under the same rules as the man pertaining to divorce.

    Was God displeased at David for having so many wives? If so did he suffer consequences?

    Sackcloth and ashes is extreme mourning and / or repentance. sackcloth was rough uncomfortable for clothing. Sitting in ashes was dirty and I suppose symbolic of being dirty and burn out? It is humility before the Lord

    2 Samuel 3:31 And David said to Joab, and to all the people that were with him, Rend your clothes, and gird you with sackcloth, and mourn before Abner. And king David himself followed the bier.

    Genesis 37:34 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days.

    Nehemiah 9:1 Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackclothes, and earth upon them.

    Psalms 35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

    Daniel 9:3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

    5th rib, meaning was stabbed in the heart.
  • Tim Coenen on 2 Samuel 3 - 5 years ago
    Why is it all ways the 5th rib? this is like the 4th time someone has died from a knife to the 5rd rib.
  • Fred Mpira on 2 Samuel 3 - 6 years ago
    The will of god had to be fulfilled on David and whatever Abner did to David was to serve David. Joab acted like a faithful servant of David but he was not. He actually became jealous of Abner because David was becoming more fond of Abner and decided to kill him in cold blood. That's why David warned his heir not to allow Joab die honorably as he was a threat to the throne, all to the will of god.

    I do think that David was upset bc it wasn't something he was going to do nor wanted this ch,vs28-29,Abner although arrogant,He is a person devious or not,it wasn't really the way to deal with the situation,just bc Abner has a nasty attitude,doesn't mean its now"ok"for others to be the same way,if it was wrong of Abner then it would have been wrong 4others,its not really honorable its revenge,opin

    Jimreeves, amen brother! Glory be to God in the highest.
  • Jimreeves on 2 Samuel 3 - 8 years ago
    God was working behind the scene. Did David allow Joab and his servants to play / fight with the Ishbosheth servants? certainly not. And the impenitent Aber came to David, presented to have a league with the People of Israel and David promptly adhere his request and knowing this will be the God's will, sent Abner with the word of Peace. But Joab destroyed it, so he be angry with him and cursed.
  • Golden on 2 Samuel 3 - 8 years ago
    David would mourn for any of his children being a man after GODs own heart.. ! He mourned for Saul whom tried to slay David many times! Remember we are GODs chosen as they were!
  • Brenda on 2 Samuel 3 - 9 years ago
    Vernita, David 's first son 's name was Amnon. The child he hath with Bathsheba is the one who died. What I don 't understand is why David was upset with Joab because he killed Abner. Abner made Saul 's son king even though David was king. He killed Joab 's brother so I feel like Joab was well within his right to kill Abner. That 's just me feeling.
  • Vernita on 2 Samuel 3:2 - 10 years ago
    I though David first born die, and I did not know he was named .
