1 Chronicles 29:28 (King James Version)
And he died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and honour: and Solomon his son reigned in his stead.
- he died
- David at his death had every thing that his heart could wish: "he died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and honour;"
- having gained more renown than any crowned head ever did. "David," says Dr. Delaney, "was a true believer, a zealous
- adorer of God, teacher of His law and worship, and inspirer of His praise; a glorious example, a perpetual and inexhaustible fountain of true piety; a consummate and unrivalled hero; a skilful and successful captain; a steady patriot; a wise ruler; a faithful, generous, and magnanimous friend; and what is yet rarer, a no less generous and magnanimous enemy; a true penitent, a divine musician, a sublime poet, and an inspired prophet. By birth a peasant, by merit a prince! In youth a hero, in manhood a monarch, and in age a saint."* a good old age. Ge 15:15 25:8 Job 5:26 Pr 16:31 Ac 13:36
- full of days
