David's Prophecies Of The Christ

King David is most-often thought of as a shepherd, then a warrior, then a king - all of which he was. But through all of his life, David was also a musician and composer of songs. In English-language translations of the Word of God, the "Psalms" take their name from psaltery, a stringed musical instrument. David was the composer of many of the Psalms, which were musical in nature.

"71:22 I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel" (Psalm 71:22 KJV)

Prophecies Of The Christ

David, through many of the Psalms that he wrote, was also a prophet. He was given to see the coming Messiah, even "witnessing" His crucifixion through Christ's own eyes:


"22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. 22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture." (Psalm 22:16-18 KJV)

Some of the many other prophecies of Christ that David wrote in his music:

"2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel." (Psalm 2:7-9 KJV; see The Coming World Dictator)

"16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul [i.e. His body - see Where Is Your Soul?] in hell [i.e. in the grave - see Where or What is Hell?]; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption." (Psalm 16:10 KJV)

"22:1 ... My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [see Eloi, Eloi, Lama Sabachthani?] Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?" (Psalm 22:1 KJV)

"41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me [see Was Judas Necessary?]" (Psalm 41:9 KJV)

"110:4 ... Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek [see What Is Jesus Christ Doing Right Now?]" (Psalm 110:4 KJV)

"118:22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner [see Zionism]" (Psalm 118:22 KJV)

"118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD." (Psalm 118:26 KJV)
