2 Samuel 23:1-7
David's last words
I speak what he tells me to say.
The one who keeps Israel safe said to me,
“A king should rule over people in a way that is right and fair.
He should show that he
He is like the sky when it has no clouds in it in the morning.
He is like bright sun after rain,
that helps the grass to grow strongly.”
He has made a promise to me that will continue for ever.
It is a strong promise that will never change.
I know that he will always help me.
He will do for me everything that I hope for.
He will throw them away like weeds.
They are like
that you cannot pull out with your hands.
Then you burn them completely in a fire.’
