What was David’s real problem, adultery, murder, lying, deception? No, this was David’s real problem.

We never arrive, even when we reach spiritual maturity.

Your masters house the castle and the material things which belonged to king Saul.

wives = nashim = females. This does not mean that God gave David these women for David to have sex with.

His replacement on the throne became the possessor of his harem as well as all of his servants and possessions.

Saul had only one wife by comparison with David, 1SA 14:50.

After the civil war was over in Israel, David was the ruler of both halves of the kingdom.

ISA 5:4What more was there to do for My vineyard that I have not done in it? Why, when I expected it to produce good grapes did it produce worthless ones?

God did not take away the kingdom, the power and the authority of David.

Restitution = a mechanic of relieving the mind of the load of guilt through reparation or acts of restitution.

have added = hiphil imperfect – jasaph to add, to increase, or to do even more.

EPH 3:20Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us,”

PSA 37:4Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart.”

Prosperity does not insulate against arrogance, sin and failure; only the source of prosperity does, and the Lord is the source through our Perception Metabolization and Application (PMA) of doctrine.

Prosperity cannot bring happiness apart from the believer’s residence function and momentum inside the Pre-Designed Plan of God (PPOG).

Turn to PSA 103:1-5

The devil’s world (cosmic system) can offer you success, sex, fame, wealth, promotion, social and professional prosperity, but all these are without happiness; you make your own misery.

have despised Qal perfect bazah to despise, to think lightly, to disesteem, to not take seriously, to regard with contempt.

The seared conscience results in despising, thinking lightly, and not taking seriously, the word of the Lord or Bible doctrine.

GEN 25:34Esau despised his birthright.” 1SA 2:30Therefore the Lord God of Israel declares, for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me will be lightly esteemed.”

PSA 51:17The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.” PSA 102:17He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.” ECC 9:16Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor mans wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.”

ISA 53:3He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face, He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.”

Turn to MAL 1:6-12

2SA 12:9Why have you despised the word of the Lord?” it isnt being negative toward doctrine; it is being so preoccupied with yourself or your problems that doctrine is ignored.

REV 2:5Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you, and will remove your lampstand out of its place unless you repent“.

Turn to JER 2:1-5

The vanity and emptiness of living for Anthropocentric Academic Speculation, Ecc 1.

The vanity and emptiness of seeking happiness in pleasure, or the eating, drinking and be merry lesson, ECC 2:1-11.

The vanity and emptiness of living for the family – Ecc 2. The vanity and emptiness of living for time only, Ecc 3.

The vanity and emptiness of looking for happiness from money, wealth and prosperity, Ecc 5. The vanity and emptiness of living for a reputation, Ecc 7.

The vanity and emptiness of looking for happiness in the hero image, wanting everyone to think youre a hero, Ecc 9.
