The requirements of the king (Dt 17) Gods promise to him: As for you, if you walk before me in integrity of heart and uprightness as David you father did, and do all I command and observe may decrees and laws, I will establish your royal throne over Israel forever, as I promised David your father when I said, you shall never fail to have a man on the throne of Israel.

Raised her son to life Destroyed 450 priests of Baal let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. Answer me so that these people will know that you are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again. Flees from Jezebel I have had enough, LORD. Take my life. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me. God tells him to go back and anoint 3 people Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal What I Learned From 1 Kings

God judges a successful life on the basis of: keeping the covenant being a good influence not in terms of wealth or social achievements The importance of one man Commitment to the will of God Solomon contrasts with David in this regard He was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father had been.
