03 牧童大衛  

大衛是以色列史上最偉大的君王,但即使全盛時期,他所統治的區域尚不及台灣大,如何與版圖橫跨歐亞非的亞歷山大相提並論,但世人以大衛命名者,肯定多於以亞氏命名者。這當然是因為猶太與基督教文明最終成為世界主流所致。在先知撒母耳奉神旨膏立大衛作王之前,大衛起先是個牧童,卻也是靈感泉湧的詩人,擅長彈琴歌唱。大衛的詩不特別著重修辭,卻因聖靈感召,獨具信仰靈性的深度。

David was the greatest king in the history of Israel. But even at the peak of his reign, his jurisdiction was no larger than the size of Taiwan and by far smaller than the conquests by Alexander the Great. However, more people have named their offsprings David than Alexander. This was a result when Judaism and Christianity became the mainstream religion in the world. Before his anointment as king by the Prophet Samuel, David was a young shepherd. But moreover, he was a poet whose poems, although not always eloquent, were inspired by the Holy Spirit. His poems fully demonstrate the depth of one’s faith and beliefs.
