....Nun (pronounced /ˈnʊn/), in the Hebrew Bible, was a man from the Tribe of Ephraim, grandson of Ammihud, son of Elishama, and father of Joshua.
(1 Chronicles 7:26-27) He grew up in and may have lived his entire life in the Israelites' Egyptian captivity, where the Egyptians "made life bitter
for them with harsh labor at mortar and bricks and with all sorts of tasks in the field." (Exodus 1:14) In Aramaic, "nun" means "fish"(The flesh).
Thus the Midrash tells: "[T]he son of him whose name was as the name of a fish would lead them [the Israelites] into the land." (Genesis Rabba

During the Conquest of Canaan, Joshua ordered the sun and moon to stand still and the Lord rained down on his enemies great hail out of heaven. The 7

nations but the Gibeonites tricked Joshua into believing that they were from a far away land:

central government existed, and in times of crisis the people were led by ad hoc leaders known as Judges. While judge is the closest literal
translation of the Hebrew term used in the masoretic text, the position is more one of unelected non-hereditary leadership than that of legal
pronouncement. In accordance with the needs of the time, their functions were primarily martial and judicial, comparable to a king (but not anointed).

The Kingdom of Judah (Hebrew: מַלְכּוּת יְהוּדָה, Modern Malkut Yehuda Tiberian Malkûṯ Yəhûḏā) existed at two periods in
Jewish history. A kingdom emerged in Judah after the death of Saul, when the tribe of Judah elevated David, who came from the Tribe of Judah, to rule
over it. After seven years David became king of a reunited Kingdom of Israel, and David moved the capital from Hebron to Jerusalem.
However, in about 930 BC the united kingdom split, with ten of the twelve Tribes of Israel rejecting Solomon's son Rehoboam as their king. The Tribes
of Judah and Benjamin remained loyal to Rehoboam, and reformed the Kingdom of Judah, while the other entity continuing to be called the Kingdom of
Israel, or Israel. The Kingdom of Judah is also often referred to as the Southern Kingdom, while the Kingdom of Israel following the split is referred
to as the Northern Kingdom.
Judah existed until 586 BC, when it was conquered by the Babylonian Empire under Nebuzar-adan, captain of Nebuchadnezzar's body-guard.[citation
needed] With the deportation of most of the population and the destruction of the Temple and of Jerusalem, the destruction of the kingdom was
complete. Gedaliah, with a Chaldean guard stationed at Mizpah, was made governor to rule over Judah, but before long he was
assassinated, and the remnant of the community was left leaderless.

Jewish tradition posits that the Psalms are the work of David (seventy-three Psalms are with David's name), based on the writings of ten ancient
psalmists (including Adam and Moses
In the New Testament, six of the Psalms (2, 16, 32, 69, 95, and 110) are specifically identified as the work of David (in, respectively, Acts 4:25;
Acts 2:31; Rom. 4:6; Rom. 11:9; Heb. 4:7; and Matt. 22:43 and corresponding verses in the other Synoptic Gospels, as well as Acts 2:34).
From the scriptural record, we read, “Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The Lord hath not chosen
these. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And
Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither. And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and
withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the Lord said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he. Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and
anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward.”—I Sam. 16:10-13
...Do you remember what was said about Saul at his anointing? That the Spirit of the Lord would come upon him, and that God gave him another heart. (1
Sam. 10 6, 9) Now the Spirit of the Lord came upon David, and an evil spirit was with Saul. He was gloomy and suspicious. People in Saul's day thought
that influences both good and bad were from God. Read what was done to bring Saul relief. Perhaps David sang as he played. He afterward sang many
songs and he was called "the sweet psalmist of Israel." They were not his songs, but songs that the Lord gave him to sing. David himself said, "The
Spirit of the Lord spake by me, and His word was in my tongue." (2 Sam. 23:1-2) Do you know whether any of the songs that David sang are preserved in
our Book of Psalms? Open to the Psalms and read in many of the headings, "A Psalm of David." Often when wrong thoughts and feelings trouble us and
make us unhappy, one of these Psalms will help us, if we read it or say it ourselves.

embodiment of Man .... Cain - Profile of Cain from the Old Testament Book of Genesis:
Cain was the first-born son of Adam and Eve, making him the first human child to be born in the Bible. Like his father Adam, he became a farmer and
worked the soil. The Bible doesn't tell us a lot about Cain, yet we discover in a few short verses that Cain had a serious anger management problem.
The story of Cain and Abel begins with the two brothers bringing an offering to the Lord. The Bible says that God was pleased with Abel's sacrifice,
but not with Cain's. As a result Cain grew angry, dejected and jealous. Soon his fierce anger led him to commit murder.
The name David means ‘beloved’ and occurs hundreds of times in the Scriptures. In each case, the reference points to but one individual, the
second king of Israel. We are first introduced to him while he was tending his father’s sheep in a field near Bethlehem. Samuel had been sent by God
to the home of Jesse to anoint one of his sons to be the future king.
The Davidic dynasty began when the tribe of Judah made David its king, following the death of Saul. The Davidic line continued when David became king
of the reunited Kingdom of Israel. When the united kingdom split, the tribes of Judah and Benjamin continued to be loyal to the Davidic line, which
ruled it until the kingdom was destroyed in 586 BC. However, the Davidic line continued to be respected by the exiles in Babylon, who regarded the
Exilarchs as kings-in-exile.
The period between the construction of the second Jewish temple in Jerusalem in 515 B.C.E. and its destruction by the Romans in 70 C.E. witnessed
major historical upheavals and significant religious changes that would affect most subsequent Western (or Abrahamic) religions. The origins of the
authority of scripture, of the centrality of law and morality in religion, of the synagogue and of apocalyptic expectations for the future all
developed in the Judaism of this period.
Main article: Babylonian captivity
The deportation and exile of Jews of the ancient Kingdom of Judah to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar II, starting with the first deportation in 597 BC
and continuing after the fall of Jerusalem and destruction of the Temple in 587 BCE, resulted in dramatic changes to Jewish culture and religion.
During the 70-year exile in Babylon, Jewish houses of assembly (known in Hebrew as a "beit knesset" or in Greek as a "synagogue") and houses of prayer
(Greek: προσευχαί, proseuchai; Hebrew Beit Tefilah), were the primary meeting places for prayer, and the house of study ("beit midrash") was
the counterpart for the synagogue.
During the period of captivity, Jews continued to practice and develop their religious traditions, many of which became distinct from their origins,
due to the influences of the local culture.
The Babylonian captivity had a number of consequences on Judaism and the Jewish culture, including changes to the Hebrew alphabet and changes in the
fundamental practices and customs of the Jewish religion. Many suggest that during the First Temple period, the people of Israel were henotheists,
that is, they believed that each nation had its own god, but that their god was superior to other gods. Some suggest that strict monotheism
developed during the Babylonian Exile, perhaps in reaction to Zoroastrian dualism.
Saul offered Merab to David as a wife after his victory over Goliath, but David does not seem to have been interested in the arrangement. (1 Samuel
18:17-19) Saul then gave his other daughter Michal in marriage to David, (1 Samuel 18:20-27) but when David became Saul's rival to the kingship, Saul
gave Michal in marriage to Palti, son of Laish. (1 Samuel 25:44)
OUR SOUL IS RESTORED
The psalmist’s expression (vs. 3)—‘he restoreth my soul’—points to the saving provisions of God’s marvelous grace on our behalf. The robe
of righteousness now covers our sins, and we have been justified. We are led in the paths of righteousness because we are the Lord’s people and we
abide in the merit of Jesus’ blood.
