Map of Ancient Israel (Canaan) during the time of King David


King David -- "A Man After God's Own Heart"

As Israel's second king, David would lead the people of Israel to an undeniable and final victory over the Philistines, something that failed to happen during previous campaigns. Before assuming the throne as king, a young David found himself in hiding from the disobedient and very jealous King Saul, who made numerous attempts on the life of David. After Saul's suicide, David returns as the rightful heir to the throne as the second king in Israel's newly-established monarchy. Known for his heroism and military brilliance, David briefly fell out of favor with God when he murdered Uriah the Hittite in order to marry his wife, Bathsheba. The Kingdom of Israel, particularly Jerusalem, thrived and blossomed under King David. The reign of King David represented the formation of a coherent Jewish kingdom centralized in its Holy Capital, Jerusalem. King David ruled the Kingdom of Israel for forty years. After his death, he was buried in the City of David, located near Jerusalem's Old City.
