Biblical Difficulty: Did David Follow The Lord Completely?

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

 

It says in the Bible that Solomon did not follow the Lord completely as his father David did. So that means that David did follow the lord completely according to the verse...

1 Kings 11:4-5

4 As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been. 5 He followed Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molech the detestable god of the Ammonites. 6 So Solomon did evil in the eyes of the LORD; he did not follow (mala') the LORD completely, as David his father had done.

The word mala' could mean...

1) to fill, be full

a) (Qal)

1) to be full

a) fulness, abundance (participle)

b) to be full, be accomplished, be ended

2) to consecrate, fill the hand

b) (Niphal)

1) to be filled, be armed, be satisfied

2) to be accomplished, be ended

c) (Piel)

1) to fill

2) to satisfy

3) to fulfil, accomplish, complete

4) to confirm

d) (Pual) to be filled

e) (Hithpael) to mass themselves against

So basically the verse means that David did satisfy and obey the words of God completely. However, we know that David broke one of the ten commandments (Exodus 20:14) by committing adultery...

 

2 Samuel 11:2-26

    2 One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, 3 and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, "Isn't this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite?" 4 Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (She had purified herself from her uncleanness.) Then she went back home. 5 The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, "I am pregnant.".....

14 In the morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it with Uriah. 15 In it he wrote, "Put Uriah in the front line where the fighting is fiercest. Then withdraw from him so he will be struck down and die."...

26 When Uriah's wife heard that her husband was dead, she mourned for him.

 

So obviously David did not follow the Lord completely as the Bible says.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.    My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
