Wisdom and Prophesy: Psalm 12

  1. Wisdom and Prophesy: Psalm 12

    The wisdom and abilities to propesy that King David had was a gift given to him by God.

    David was the son of Jesse. Jesse was brought to the attention of God's Worker, Samuel, and Samuel sought out Jesse and his three sons and purified them for a ceremony. Samuel evaluated each of Jesse's sons and when Jesse's youngest son, David, was brought before him, he knew that David was the one that God had spoken to him about. Samuel anointed David as the new King.

    David's reign as King started when he was a very young man. David lived to be a very old man and during his lifetime, he wrote many, many prayers and songs based upon his visions and his talks with God. One of the most meaningful songs, or 'psalms' that David wrote as a prophesy, is contained in Psalm 12. Please read with me from the New Living Translation and think about what he wrote some 3000 years ago and how it applies to this day:
