1 Chronicles 12:19-40. 1 Chronicles 13:1-14. 1 Chronicles 14:1-17
David became famous in all the countries. The LORD made all nations afraid of him (14:17,ERV).
When someone is doing well the wider world gets to know about it. David was blessed because of his trust in the Lord, something he was not shy to write about judging by his many psalms. If we trust God as David did we, too, will be blessed. Then it is up to us to tell the world around us that God has been God to us, so that they can also be blessed by Him.
Death is the destiny of all the wicked, of all those who reject God (v.17,GNB).
The death written about here is the 'second death' referred to in Revelation 21:8. It is about everlasting separation from God. Those who don't believe that God would cast someone away forever should ask themselves why God needs to force into heaven those who have rejected Him. Rejection was their choice, a choice that will be respected by God.
