Questions David Asked – Segment Five

We are spending the next few weeks studying the questions David asked. In all he asked 168 questions scattered throughout the books of Kings, Chronicles, and the Psalms. It will take a while to work through these, but the search will be well worth it.  This week we will work through chapters 7-12 of 2 Samuel.

In your journal, record each question, to whom it was asked, what the response was, and what difference the question  made. Remember–when we conclude our Weekly Quests, you will have studied every question in the Bible.
