About St. David . . In the Bible the name David is borne only by the second king of Israel, the great-grandson of Boaz and Ruth. He was the youngest of the eight sons of Isai, or Jesse. The life of David was an important epoch in the history of Israel. He was the real founder of the monarchy, the head of the dynasty. By his successful wars David succeeded in making Israel an independent state and causing his own name to be respected by all the surrounding nations. David was chosen by God "as a man according to His own heart." He gave Israel a capital, a court, a great center of religious worship. David died at the age of 70, having reigned in Jerusalem 33 years. He was buried on Mount Sion. St. Peter spoke of his tomb as still in existence on the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles.
