2 Samuel 12:26-31

Read 2 Samuel 12:26-31 and 1 Chronicles 20:1-3 – yes,  we are getting fancy today and comparing two accounts of the same event. Chronicles is 3 books past 2 Samuel, for those of you trying to find it. It documents the religious history of Israel and Judah.   It was written post exile by the prophet Ezra.  Note that these events in Rabbah took place as King David was staying home from the war, and getting into trouble. Joab was faithful to David, he captured Rabbah’s water supply, then called for David to besiege the city so that David and not Joab would get glory for the victory. God says he will remove our sins as far as the east is from the west (see Psalm 103:12).  David received the victory as if he had not sinned, and the history of 1 Chronicles reveals this to be the case. Praise God, beloved, his forgiveness is like an eraser on a white board! 👑🙌✏
