David in the Bible
These pictures of David in the Bible show various scenes throughout his early life. David was the youngest son of the shepherd, Jesse. David was beautiful, but God did not choose him for his beauty. David loved God, and he wished and prayed to love Him more. When David was alone in the fields, keeping his sheep, he liked to think of God. And then, David used to pray, and play upon his harp, and sing beautiful hymns of praise to God.
When Samuel anointed David's head with oil, David wondered why God should honor him so much and give him the kingdom, but he was not proud of the honor. He did not want to be king directly. He waited patiently for the right time.
When David was older, he played upon his harp for Saul. The sweet music comforted Saul and made him feel better. Later, David became close friends with Saul's son, Jonathan. They were like brothers. Jonathan was kind and generous to David, and gave him his own robe, his bow, his sword, and his girdle. As Saul grew to hate David, Jonathan became David's protector. When David was eventually crowned king, he never forgot Jonathan's loyalty and kindness, and after Jonathan's death, David sought out Jonathan's son, and offered him friendship.
