  1. Good morning, Gentleman. I have two questions:

    It sounded to me that David was mocking people who were lame & crippled. But wasn’t Saul’s son Jonathan lame & the scripture tell of their strong love for each other. Please explain next week.

    Where is this filmed?

    Although it’s been almost four years since we moved to Waco(Jesereum on the Brazos) I still read your blog daily & have measured all of the Baptist curches in Waco by FBCSA. I am currently a member of First Baptist in Waco and continue to love FBCSA dearly.

    1. Charlotte, we are grateful you stay connected with FBCSA. Amy and I love FBCSA, but we miss Waco dearly. I hope you’ll take care of Waco for us. As for your questions. 1) scholars are divided on the nature of verses 6-8, however, most lean toward Becky Nelson’s second comment below.

  2. The Jebusites mocked David saying, “Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither” (v. 6). In other words: If you can overcome the lame and the blind, you may enter into Jerusalem, but other soldiery we will not interpose: even they will be strong enough to break the arms of David. Has no defiance been hurled at the Messiah? Has He not been excluded from the metropolis of the world? Are there not those who have mocked Him and wagged their heads at Him? Are there not those who have spat upon His name, and said, We will not have this man to reign over us? Let history testify, and let our own conscience speak.

  3. With regard to prescriptive vs. descriptive, one thing we know…whatever God does and commands is right. He works through us and our flaws for His purpose… our sanctification and the bringing about of His ultimate will for history.

  4. This is my surmise about the “blind and lame” comment: The Jebusites were very sure that their stronghold was impenetrable. Even the blind and lame can repel an invasion in our fortified city, they mocked. David mocks the mockers, when he tells them how he took the city…through the water tunnel.

    1. Becky,
      Thank you for this comment! this is where most scholars land, and answers the question above.
