God's king is rejected - again Introduction blowing a horn - a wrapper - v1 and 22. We're familiar and tired of seeing rebellion against God's king. And have you noticed how it always ultimately looks the same? The promise of great things that ultimately comes to self-destruction, and the hurt of many people along the way. Whereas to bow to God's king - although mocked as boring - actually leads to fulness, richness, beauty, and flourishing. We will see two ways to reject God's king: Sheba, and Joab. [musical analogy: you can refuse to play the music, and just do your own thing. Or, you can sit in the orchestra but play the notes you want to play, and play them as loud or soft as you think they should be; and you might be really impressive for a lot of the time - but you aren't actually submitting to the composer or conductor] 1. Sheba leads a rebellion against David, v1-13 v1 picks up from last week - this internal bickering between tribes etc. v2 there's the split as before and after David v2 foreshadows what will happen; Israel will walk away from YHWH and become the despised Samaria. Sheba, a 'man of Belial' (v1, lit) - from the tribe of Saul, benjamites, possibly loyal to Saul's earlier regime? cf Deuteronomy 13.13; man or worthlessness will draw people away after other gods. he's a scoundrel because he rejects God's chosen king. We're tired of this now, with Absalom etc. cf same old pattern in churches. People with high view of Scripture, so they say, yet doing what they want eg relationships or church membership or unforgiveness. Their 'rage is too precious to them'. v3 deliberately placed here in the midst of the narrative to show attention for the poor and needy. Made desolate by the sin of others, like Tamar. So many in the Bible. Ultimately Jesus on the cross identifies with the shamed and desolate ones. David sent Amasa v4 and then also Abishai v6-7. Amasa slow or late for some reason. Joab an elite fighter who gets there first. Grasping beard with right hand - ie would imply peace and no weapon. Lulled into security. Literally underhand. Joab intensely faithful to David, but faithful in his own terms. He doesn't try to be king, but yet acts like his own king. This is where means and manner matter. cf to obey is better than sacrifice. Not, 'Look, I've done this, this and this so you can't question me. Instead, it's have you done what God calls us to do, in the way that he calls us to do it, in the things he's actually placed before you - cf good samaritan?' v11-13 why this detail?! Amasa, the victim; type of Christ? 2. Sheba is killed and peace is restored to the Kingdom, v14-26 v16 wise woman - compare En-dor etc. Or Joab using a wise woman back in 2 Samuel about Absalom. Again this theme of the women being more righteous than the men in 1-2 Samuel! inheritance of YHWH - v19 - only reference to God v20 Joab's words - ironic! v22 with the death of the rebel the war is ended. This is propitiation. Better that one man dies for all the people, than that the whole heritage is swallowed up. v23-26 a summary - compare earlier ones. It's a way of saying, 'the main section is over'. Remaining weeks cover particular angles of David as king and servant. A pparently fragile, but still standing - the Kingdom So there are two ways to reject God's king: Sheba - outright Joab - faithful only in his own terms. No death to self. Jesus, like the desolate women of 2 Samuel. Speak what's right yet ignored or trampled on. Like Amasa, the shocking victim which makes people stop. Jesus was 'swallowed up'; the precious Israel of God, so that the heritage of God might be secured for his people. Like Sheba, through his death the war is stopped and at-one-ment is made. In Christ: you have died, so die to self-centred living. You have been raised, so live to God. His kingdom utterly secured; Jesus himself the cornerstone; the foundation of the apostles and prophets, each of his people a living stone. [cathedral building] Conclusion 2 ways to reject God's king, Sheba or Joab. Jesus becomes the victim in order to secure forgiveness for the rebel, and end the hostility between us and God.

The Rebellion of Sheba 20 1 Now there happened to be there d a worthless man, whose name was Sheba, the son of Bichri, a Benjaminite. And he blew the trumpet and said, e “We have no portion in David, and we have no inheritance in the son of Jesse; f every man to his tents, O Israel!” 2 So all the men of Israel withdrew from David and followed Sheba the son of Bichri. But the men of Judah followed their king steadfastly from the Jordan to Jerusalem. 3 And David came to his house at Jerusalem. And the king took g the ten concubines whom he had left to care for the house and put them in a house under guard and provided for them, but did not go in to them. So they were shut up until the day of their death, living as if in widowhood. 4 Then the king said to h Amasa, “Call the men of Judah together to me within three days, and be here yourself.” 5 So Amasa went to summon Judah, but he delayed beyond the set time that had been appointed him. 6 And David said to Abishai, “Now Sheba the son of Bichri will do us more harm than Absalom. Take i your lord’s servants and pursue him, lest he get himself to fortified cities and escape from us.” 1 7 And there went out after him Joab’s men and the j Cherethites and the Pelethites, and all the mighty men. They went out from Jerusalem to pursue Sheba the son of Bichri. 8 When they were at the great stone that is in Gibeon, Amasa came to meet them. Now Joab was wearing a soldier’s garment, and over it was a belt with a sword in its sheath fastened on his thigh, and as he went forward it fell out. 9 And Joab said to Amasa, “Is it well with you, my brother?” And Joab took Amasa by the beard with his right hand k to kiss him. 10 But Amasa did not observe the sword that was in Joab’s hand. l So Joab struck him with it m in the stomach and spilled his entrails to the ground without striking a second blow, and he died. Then Joab and Abishai his brother pursued Sheba the son of Bichri. 11 And one of Joab’s young men took his stand by Amasa and said, “Whoever favors Joab, and whoever is for David, let him follow Joab.” 12 And Amasa lay wallowing in his blood in the highway. And anyone who came by, seeing him, stopped. And when the man saw that all the people stopped, he carried Amasa out of the highway into the field and threw a garment over him. 13 When he was taken out of the highway, all the people went on after Joab to pursue Sheba the son of Bichri. 14 And Sheba passed through all the tribes of Israel to n Abel of n Beth-maacah, 1 and all o the Bichrites 2 assembled and followed him in. 15 And all the men who were with Joab came and besieged him in n Abel of Beth-maacah. p They cast up a mound against the city, and it stood against the rampart, and they were battering the wall to throw it down. 16 Then a wise woman called from the city, “Listen! Listen! Tell Joab, ‘Come here, that I may speak to you.’” 17 And he came near her, and the woman said, “Are you Joab?” He answered, “I am.” Then she said to him, “Listen to the words of your servant.” And he answered, “I am listening.” 18 Then she said, “They used to say in former times, ‘Let them but ask counsel at n Abel,’ and so they settled a matter. 19 I am one of those who are peaceable and faithful in Israel. You seek to destroy a city that is a mother in Israel. Why will you q swallow up r the heritage of the Lord ?” 20 Joab answered, “Far be it from me, far be it, that I should q swallow up or destroy! 21 That is not true. But a man of s the hill country of Ephraim, called Sheba the son of Bichri, has lifted up his hand against King David. Give up him alone, and I will withdraw from the city.” And the woman said to Joab, “Behold, his head shall be thrown to you over the wall.” 22 Then the woman went to all the people t in her wisdom. And they cut off the head of Sheba the son of Bichri and threw it out to Joab. So he blew the trumpet, and they dispersed from the city, u every man to his home. And Joab returned to Jerusalem to the king. 23 v Now Joab was in command of all the army of Israel; and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was in command of the Cherethites and the Pelethites; 24 and w Adoram was in charge of the forced labor; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was the recorder; 25 and Sheva was secretary; and x Zadok and Abiathar were priests; 26 and y Ira the Jairite was also David’s priest.
