Biblical king of Israel, c. 1012-c. 972

Fishburn and Hughes: "The second king of Israel, first king of the Judaean dynasty.
Deutsches Requiem: the incident mentioned alludes to the sequel to the story of Uriah the Hittite, whom David sent to the front line so that he could marry his wife Bathsheba with whom he had committed adultery. The prophet Nathan tells David a parable of a rich man with many flocks who took a poor man's only ewe lamb to offer it to a visitor at his table. When David heard the story 'his anger was greatly kindled against the man', whereupon he was told: 'Thou art the man' (II Samuel 12:7).

Guayaquil: alludes to the description of David dancing, as he brought the Covenant into Zion: 'And David danced before the Lord with all his might...'(II Samuel 6:14)." (57-58)
