Sample text

Now Jonathan and Ahimaaz stayed by Enrogel; for they might not be seen to come into the city: and a wench went and told them. 2 Samuel 17:15–17 (KJV) Ahithophel avenged Bathsheba's shame When Absalom so openly disgraced His father's concubines and royal name While barefoot David fled in weeping haste. Now spies and counterspies lurk out of sight; Two men who feign allegiance stay at court And learn how Absalom intends to fight— But they need help to carry their report. No wife or daughter from this priestly house Can safely leave the city undisguised.

Or so at least it seemed, Until the death of David's son made sure Some things of which I'd only vaguely dreamed. When God sent Nathan, who exposed our wrong, He made us deal in truth instead of lies. So now my faith for Solomon is strong; O God, please use my life to make him wise. I can't feel guiltless for our trysting night; My bathing never should have been in sight.  But as he approached the entrance a woman dropped an upper millstone on his head and cracked his skull.  So he sounded the trumpet, and his men dispersed from the city.

Naomi and her daughters­in­law prepared to return. " The bread of yesterday will not suffice If here today, I have no loaf to slice. Page 62 Page 63 Ruth to Naomi After Obed So Naomi [the widow] returned from Moab accompanied by Ruth.  He was the father of Jesse, the father of David.  Some Of us were watching how you calmly talked Among yourselves with gentleness and I Was most impressed by how your husband walked Beside you and my heart could feel the tie. Then as I joined the circle of your love, Your inner flame warmed me and helped me see That loyalty and truth form bonds above My childhood thoughts and last eternally.
