The Prophets: David

King David was the progenitor by which the Israelite monarchy was instituted, as a living prophecy of the Messiah to come (see the Israelite Monarchy: The Origin, The Civil War, The United Kingdom, The Division Of Israel, The Northern Kingdom, The Southern Kingdom and The Messiah). The ancestral connection to David was in fact a well-known requirement of the coming Messiah:

"21:9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. 21:10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? 21:11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee." (Matthew 21:9-11 KJV)

"1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David" (Luke 1:32 KJV)

But David was also a prophet of that coming of the Christ. David described it in astounding detail, including the Crucifixion as seen 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)

"Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord"

More Messianic prophecies by David - of both the first and second comings of the Christ:

The Holy Scriptures

"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)
