The second book of Samuel follows the rule of King David, after the death of King Saul, and his establishment of Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel. 2 Samuel shows both the shortcomings and successes of David as king, but also the forgiveness of God after true repentance. Notable stories include David's adultery with Bathsheba, the overthrow of King David by his son Absalom, and the journey of the Ark to Jerusalem.
