A Father’s Final Charge

A FAREWELL charge like David’s to Solomon (1 Kings 2:1–9) was a fairly common way for fathers in the ancient world to pass on a legacy to their successors. David’s last words provide a useful model for parents today to give final instructions to their children. David’s charge contained several elements:

  • A blunt recognition and acceptance of death.
  • A challenge to Solomon to act responsibly.
  • A review of God’s covenant with the nation of Israel and with the house of David.
  • Instructions about serving justice and honoring David’s commitments.
