Songs of the Bible ✡ “The Favorite Of The Songs Of Yisrael” – Israel365

These are the last words of David: The utterance of David son of Yishai, The utterance of the man set on high, The anointed of the God of Yaakov, The favorite of the songsof Yisrael:

וְאֵלֶּה דִּבְרֵי דָוִד הָאַחֲרֹנִים נְאֻם דָּוִד בֶּן־יִשַׁי וּנְאֻם הַגֶּבֶר הֻקַם עָל מְשִׁיחַ אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב וּנְעִים זְמִרוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵל

שמואל ב כג:א

Today’s Israel Inspiration

The Hebrew words n’eem zemirot yisrael (נעים זמרות ישראל),‘ the favorite of the songs of Yisrael’ or ‘ the sweet singer of Israel,’ are a reference to King David. Though much of this chapter focuses on his worldly accomplishments, King David is an intensely spiritual person who strives with every ounce of his being to serve Hashem.  In addition to being a scholar, King David is the author of most of Sefer Tehillim, excelling not only in Torah study but also in prayer.   Though his wish to build God’s Holy Temple is not granted, he is able to make many of its preparations. King David serves as the quintessential leader who uses all of his talents, and all aspects of his personality, to serve Hashem and His people.
