David and the Shewbread

The record bears out David’s contention that the Shewbread, which he begged of the Priests, was “in a manner common” (1 Sam. xxi. 5), for the marginal rendering is, “especially when this day there is other sanctified in the vessel” (1 Sam. xxi· 6 marg.); that is, that the bread David asked for had served its purpose, and was therefore available for food. Moreover, we dare not, and as Christadelphians we will have no desire, to go behind the Lord’s implication on the matter, that whether lawful or unlawful in his act, David was “blameless” (Matt. xii. 5). Further, we have to remember that from the time of his being anointed, “the spirit of the Lord rested upon David”(1 Sam. xvi. 13).
