Sermon notes
The LORD gave victory to David wherever he went Introduction Destroying God's enemies, as the LORD's anointed one. Christ will do this universally. Have no doubt that he will. God's kingdom has come on earth under David's kingship, direct - though not final - fulfilment of 2 Sam 7. So the kingdom teaching here transcends the historical context. It is history and prophecy. David's kingdom not perfect but preliminary, prototype, principial. v1-6 David defeats God's enemies and expands the kingdom Four victories listed here: 1 - Philistines 2 - Moab 3 - Hadadezer king of Zobah 4 - Syrians [Map] Objection: isn't this shocking genocide? [Not happy neutrality, but God's declared enemies; David as agent of God's judgement rather than personal racist vendetta; never any trace of someone pleading for mercy and not finding it in the Bible; this is a foretaste of the greater King's judgement when he treads the winepress of God's wrath; for more on this question see sermon 1 Sam 15 on the Amalekites] Since David is God's authorised King, wherever he reigns, God's kingdom is. [this incidentally is the problem with some views of the coming of the kingdom in purely social ways - they might be effects or residue of the kingdom, but if Jesus is not acknowledged as Lord there, the kingdom has not come]. The victories are YHWH's gift. Conflict precedes conquest. The nations aren't longing for Christ's rule, so history won't ooze gently into the coming of the kingdom. Christ will assert his rule in this age by the proclamation through his weak and faithful church. And at his return, defeat and subjugate all enemies (parable of wheat and tares). Image of battle and victory. cf phrases in the Psalms, 'all kings will bow' etc - must point to a future resurrection and judgement, since most kings who have ever lived didn't bow. v6 - literally, YHWH saved wherever David went. Victory for YHWH, salvation for his people. Application: How do you feel about the winepress of God's wrath (Revelation 14)? Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. 18 And another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over the fire, and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe.” 19 So the angel swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great wine press of the wrath of God. 20 And the wine press was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the wine press, as high as a horse's bridle, for 1,600 stadia [184 miles]. v7-12 King David dedicated the spoil to the LORD Another aspect of this not being a mere genocide etc. David is fighting the LORD's battles. NB absence of this 'dedication to the LORD' emphasis in chapter 10 preceding Bathsheba. Toi is a picture of those who acknowledge Christ's rule and lay down arms. Wealth of the nations will be brought into the eternal city Application: Do you see all your successes and victories as God's? The 'firstfruits' principle. Money, time, emotions, praise, children, etc. v13-14 God gives David victory over Edom Edomites, same point as earlier on. Psalm 60 possibly? 'A great name' Backdrop to Edom Again, 'YHWH saved' formula. Application: There is always salvation in Jesus; 'wherever he is, the LORD saves'. Do you know this? Have you come to him? v15-18 David reigned with justice and equity justice = fairness, righteousness, doing what's right equity = proportionality. Eg equity in a home. Each according to their means or situation or stake. cf weight classes in weightlifting and other sports. We need equity in order to have true equality. Equity acknowledges differences. summary (tailpiece of 1 Sam 15-2 Sam 8, and there's another tailpiece later in 2 Sam very similar) cf 1 Samuel 7.15-17, 1 Samuel 14.47-52 NB verse 8.15 ; on the whole, David exercised his royal office in the proper way. The general tone, not the perfection. Application: Are you doing what is right and just for the people in the different relationships and spheres in your life? Do you long for this great rule of equity and joy in all its fulness? Conclusion Jesus' return and judgement is played down because of a sentimentalised view of him and the nature of conflict with flesh/world/devil. [Psalm 60]
2 Samuel 8:1-18
David’s Victories 8 1 g After this David defeated the Philistines and subdued them, and David took h Metheg-ammah out of the hand of the Philistines. 2 i And he defeated Moab and he measured them with a line, making them lie down on the ground. Two lines he measured to be put to death, and one full line to be spared. And the Moabites j became servants to David and k brought tribute. 3 David also defeated l Hadadezer the son of Rehob, king of m Zobah, as he went to restore his power at the river Euphrates. 4 n And David took from him 1,700 horsemen, and 20,000 foot soldiers. And David o hamstrung all the chariot horses but left enough for 100 chariots. 5 p And when the q Syrians of Damascus came to help l Hadadezer king of m Zobah, David struck down 22,000 men of the Syrians. 6 Then David put garrisons in Aram of Damascus, and the Syrians r became servants to David and brought tribute. s And the Lord gave victory to David wherever he went. 7 And David took t the shields of gold that were carried by the servants of Hadadezer and brought them to Jerusalem. 8 And from Betah and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, King David took very much bronze. 9 When Toi king of u Hamath heard that David had defeated the whole army of Hadadezer, 10 Toi sent his son Joram to King David, to ask about his health and to bless him because he had fought against Hadadezer and defeated him, for Hadadezer had often been at war with Toi. And Joram brought with him articles of silver, of gold, and of bronze. 11 v These also King David dedicated to the Lord , together with the silver and gold that he dedicated from all the nations he subdued, 12 from Edom, w Moab, x the Ammonites, y the Philistines, z Amalek, and from the spoil of Hadadezer the son of Rehob, king of m Zobah. 13 And David made a name for himself when he returned from striking down 18,000 Edomites in a the Valley of Salt. 14 Then he put garrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom he put garrisons, b and all the Edomites became David’s servants. And the Lord gave victory to David wherever he went. David’s Officials 15 So David reigned over all Israel. And David administered justice and equity to all his people. 16 c Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the army, and d Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder, 17 and e Zadok the son of Ahitub and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar were priests, and f Seraiah was secretary, 18 and g Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over 1 the h Cherethites and the Pelethites, and David’s sons were priests.
