October 23, 2019: Day 39 – II Samuel 8

We find the consolidation of David's rule and the conquering of the nations that used to strike fear into the hearts of both Israel and Judah.  David subdues the nations, what a great word, and sets up his kingdom with stability and order.

At the end of the chapter you see that things are  in place and it gives you the impression that now we can move to what comes  next, whatever that may be.  Throughout this process you see David amassing a huge amount of wealth not only in conquests, but also in gifts from surrounding countries that wanted nothing to do with David.
