David – Bear – 2 Sam. – Dan 7 to Rev. 13:2

Details of David as the bear is pending. David was first recognized as the “bear” at 2 Sam. 17:8 when Hushai who overthrew Ahithophel who supported Absalom said of David and his men “they be chafed in their minds, as a bear robbed of her whelps in the field”.

The Ancient scribes were formulating types for admonition. All David’s attributes match – raised up on one side, had three ribs in the mouth, and devoured much flesh as outlined in Dan. 7:5.

In the Apocalyptic age John of Patmos again reiterates the type in Rev. 13 – “and the beast which I saw was like a leopard (Saul), and his feet were the feet of a bear (David), and his mouth the mouth of a lion (Solomon) and the dragon gave him power”.

This apocalyptic beast is the institution orthodoxy that has dominated all cultures with a misinterpretation of the Testaments. Power was given to it for 42 (1260 days) months annihilating the divinity of humankind.

Midrash revives and reveres the Ancient scribes’ sagacity.

To be continued.
