Verse of the Day (October 15, 2020) #BMSeminary – {David’s Prayer} David responds to the Lord’s message with a heartfelt prayer of thanksgiving. The king calls God by the name “Sovereign LORD” seven times, reflecting a relationship of great intimacy. He is grateful that God is building him a “house” (his future royal dynasty), a term that appears fifteen times in the Hebrew of ch. 7 and is the running theme throughout it. David apparently enters the tent to pray. David humbly acknowledges that he is king only because of God. He thus confirms what the Lord had said to him through Nathan the prophet (vv. 8-9). David is surprised by God’s grace and mercy to him. this decree . . . is for a mere human! The Hebrew is difficult and uncertain, but it highlights that God’s work in David’s life is a lesson for how God works in the lives of believers. See also NIV text note. This is David’s great proclamation majestically affirming that the Lord alone is God. [Zondervan Study Bible]
