"And all this assembly shall know that the
LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle
[is] the LORD'S, and he will give you into our
hands." And it came to pass, when the Philistine
arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David
hasted, and ran toward the army to meet the
Philistine..." -1 Samuel 17:47-48
I and II Kings provide a record of Israel's history
from the beginning of the movement to place Solomon on
David's throne through the end of the reign of Zedekiah,
Judah's last king. There are great lessons to be learned
from Israel's desire to be "like those around
us" and its consequences.
