This quarter's lessons delve into the book of 2 Samuel.
We will study royalty, King David and the reign of a man with flaws, but
had a heart after God.

2 Samuel 22: 26-36, 50-51
Audio Scripture for certain translations available on and


2 Samuel 22:26-36, 50-51

26 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful, and with the upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright.
27 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself unsavoury.
28 And the afflicted people thou wilt save: but thine eyes are upon the haughty, that thou mayest bring them down.
29 For thou art my lamp, O Lord: and the Lord will lighten my darkness.
30 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.
31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
32 For who is God, save the Lord? and who is a rock, save our God?
33 God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.
34 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places.
35 He teacheth my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
36 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy gentleness hath made me great.
50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.
51 He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.



1 Chronicles 16:7-36 New King James Version (NKJV)

David’s Song of Thanksgiving

On that day David first delivered this psalm into the hand of Asaph and his brethren, to thank the Lord:

Oh, give thanks to the Lord!

Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!

Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;

Talk of all His wondrous works!
Glory in His holy name;

Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!
Seek the Lord and His strength;

Seek His face evermore!
Remember His marvelous works which He has done,

His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth,
O seed of Israel His servant,

You children of Jacob, His chosen ones!
He is the Lord our God;

His judgments are in all the earth.
Remember His covenant forever,

The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations,
The covenant which He made with Abraham,

And His oath to Isaac,
And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute,

To Israel for an everlasting covenant,
Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan

As the allotment of your inheritance,”
When you were few in number,

Indeed very few, and strangers in it.
When they went from one nation to another,

And from one kingdom to another people,
He permitted no man to do them wrong;

Yes, He rebuked kings for their sakes,
Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones,

And do My prophets no harm.”
Sing to the Lord, all the earth;

Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,

His wonders among all peoples.
For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised;

He is also to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are [a]idols,

But the Lord made the heavens.
Honor and majesty are before Him;

Strength and gladness are in His place.
Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples,

Give to the Lord glory and strength.
Give to the Lord the glory due His name;

Bring an offering, and come before Him.
Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!
Tremble before Him, all the earth.

The world also is firmly established,
It shall not be moved.
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;

And let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.”
Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;

Let the field rejoice, and all that is in it.
Then the trees of the woods shall rejoice before the Lord,

For He is coming to judge the earth.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

For His mercy endures forever.
And say, “Save us, O God of our salvation;

Gather us together, and deliver us from the Gentiles,
To give thanks to Your holy name,
To triumph in Your praise.”
Blessed be the Lord God of Israel

From everlasting to everlasting!
And all the people said, “Amen!” and praised the Lord.
