2 Samuel 23:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 23

The Last Words of David.[a] These are the last words of David:

The oracle of David, son of Jesse;
    the oracle of the man God raised up,
Anointed of the God of Jacob,
    favorite of the Mighty One of Israel.
The spirit of the Lord spoke through me;
    his word was on my tongue.


  1. 23:1–7 The last words of David: the text of this short composition is difficult in places; it views David’s career in retrospect.
