The erection of the new capital at Jerusalem introduces us to a new era in David's life and in the history of the monarchy. David became a king on the scale of the great Oriental sovereigns of Egypt and Persia, with a regular adminstration and organization of court and camp. He also founded an imperial dominion which for the first time realized the prophetic description of the bounds of the chosen people.
The pictures below depict various scenes from the Kingdom of David. We see his return to Jerusalem after his exile during Absalom's rebellion. We also see an image of David's wives and a picture of David mourning his son Amnon's death. There is also an illustration of David meeting Mephibosheth, Saul's son, and a picture of David's triumph following the rebellion of Sheba. Finally, we see two views of David's tomb and one of David's tower at Jerusalem.
