The Life of David
II Samuel 8:1-18
“The Lord’s Prayer.” The prayer has an introduction, six petitions, and a conclusion.
I. The Conquests of the Kingdom (II Samuel 8:1-6,13-14)
The kingdom boundaries were extended to what God had originally promised to Abraham.
So, just like the Philistines, the Moabites were no longer a threat to Israel.
As we read about the conquests of the kingdom, our esteem for David grows.
David illustrates that the kingdom of God will conquer all opposition, not because of David’s prowess but because of God’s power.
II. The Spoils of the Kingdom (II Samuel 8:7-12)
The spoils of the kingdom, which are the blessings that Jesus secures, are available to any person who is willing to submit to Jesus.
III. The Administration of the Kingdom (II Samuel 8:15-18)
It is also the first of many occurrences in the Bible of the phrase “justice and equity,” or sometimes translated as, “justice and righteousness.”
Jesus’ administration, however, will be perfect. All his enemies will be defeated forever.
