David loved his wife, Michal, but he had to leave her behind when he ran off to war. He married more wives then, had lots of sons, won lots of battles, and was crowned king over all. Meanwhile Michal married someone else, but David loved her still and made her come home. Then David fell for Bathsheba, married another man’s wife, and had even more children.
He wrote love songs for his wives and for God, then wrote more songs, wondering if God could ever forgive his crimes. God answered, “I love you David, and I’ll never leave you behind.”
