Andrea del Verrocchio's bronze statue of David was most made between 1473 and 1475. It was commissioned by the Medici family, it is sometimes claimed that Verrocchio modeled the statue after a handsome pupil in his workshop, the young Leonardo da Vinci. The statue represents the youthful David, future king of the Israelites, triumphantly posed over the head of the slain Goliath; the bronze was installed in Palazzo Vecchio in 1476. Placement of Goliath's head has been a source of some debate for art historians; when exhibited at the National Gallery of Art, the head was placed between David's feet, as is the case in the statue's permanent home, the National Museum of the Bargello, in Florence, Italy. Another school of art historians have suggested that Verrocchio intended for Goliath's head to be placed to David's right, pointing to the diagonals of the ensemble; this placement was temporarily arranged at the National Gallery of Art, as well as Atlanta's High Museum, among others. David was intended as a representation of Florence, as both were more powerful than they appeared, both the shepherd boy and Florence could be viewed as rising powers.

David is described in the Hebrew Bible as the second king of the United Kingdom of Israel and Judah after Saul and Ish-bosheth. In the biblical narrative, David is a young shepherd who gains fame first as a musician and by killing the enemy champion Goliath, he becomes a close friend of Saul's son Jonathan. Worried that David is trying to take his throne, Saul turns on David. After Saul and Jonathan are killed in battle, David is anointed as King. David conquers Jerusalem, taking the Ark of the Covenant into the city, establishing the kingdom founded by Saul; as king, David commits adultery with Bathsheba, leading him to arrange the death of her husband Uriah the Hittite. Because of this sin, God denies David the opportunity to build the temple, his son Absalom tries to overthrow him. David flees Jerusalem during Absalom's rebellion, but after Absalom's death he returns to the city to rule Israel. Before his peaceful death, he chooses his son Solomon as successor, he is honored in the prophetic literature as an ideal king and an ancestor of a future Messiah, many psalms are ascribed to him.
Historians of the Ancient Near East agree that David existed around 1000 BCE, but that there is little that can be said about him as a historical figure. There is no direct evidence outside of the Bible concerning David, but the Tel Dan Stele, an inscribed stone erected by a king of Damascus in the late 9th/early 8th centuries BCE to commemorate his victory over two enemy kings, contains the phrase Hebrew: ביתדוד, consisting of the Hebrew words "house" and "David", which most scholars translate as "House of David". Ancient Near East historians doubt that the united monarchy as described in the Bible existed. David is richly represented in post-biblical Jewish written and oral tradition, is discussed in the New Testament. Early Christians interpreted the life of Jesus in light of the references to the Messiah and to David. David is written tradition as well; the biblical character of David has inspired many interpretations in art and literature over centuries. The first book of Samuel portrays David as the youngest of the eight sons of Jesse of Bethlehem.
His mother is not named in any book of the Bible, but the Talmud identifies her as Nitzevet daughter of Adael. When the story was retold in 1 Chronicles he was made the youngest of seven sons and given two sisters and Abigail; the Book of Ruth traces his ancestry back to Ruth the Moabite. David is described as cementing his relations with various political and national groups through marriage. King Saul offered David his oldest daughter Merab. David did not refuse the offer, but humbled himself in front of Saul to be considered among the King's family. Saul reneged and instead gave Merab in marriage to Adriel the Meholathite. Having been told that his younger daughter Michal was in love with David, Saul gave her in marriage to David upon David's payment in Philistine foreskins. Saul tried to have him killed. David escaped. Saul sent Michal to Galim to marry Palti, son of Laish. David took wives in Hebron, according to 2 Samuel 3. David wanted Michal back and Saul's son Ish-boshet delivered her to David, causing her husband great grief.
The Book of Chronicles lists his sons with his various concubines. In Hebron, David had six sons: Amnon, by Ahinoam. By Bathsheba, his sons were Shammua, Shobab and Solomon. David's sons born in Jerusalem of his other wives included Ibhar, Eliphelet, Nepheg, Japhia and Eliada. Jerimoth, not mentioned in any of the genealogies, is mentioned as another of his sons in 2 Chronicles 11:18, his daughter Tamar, by Maachah, is raped by her half-brother Amnon. God is angered when Saul, Israel's king, unlawfully offers a sacrifice and disobeys a divine command both to kill all of the Amalekites and to destroy their confiscated property. God sends the prophet Samuel to anoint a shepherd, the youngest son of Jesse of Bethlehem, to be king instead. After God sends an evil spirit to torment Saul, his courtiers recommend that he send for David, a man skilled in playing the lyre, wise in speech, brave in battle. David thus enters Saul's service as one of the royal armour-bearers and plays the lyre to soothe the king.
War comes between Israel and the Philistines, the giant Goliath challenges the Israelites to send out a champion to face him in single combat. David, sent by his father to bring provisions to his brothers serving in Saul's army, declares that he can defeat Goliath. Refusing the king's offer of the royal armour, he kills Goliath with his sling. Saul inquires the name of the young hero's father. Saul sets David over his army. All Israel loves David. Saul plots his death, but Saul's son Jonathan, one of those who loves David, warns him of his father's schemes and David flees, he goes first to Nob, where he is fed by the priest Ahimelech and given Goliath's sword, to Gath, the Philistine city of Goliath, intending to seek refuge with King Achish there. Achish's servants or officials question his loyalty, David sees that he is in danger there, he goes next to the cave of Adullam. From there he goes to seek refuge with the king of
The David (band)
The David was an American garage rock/psychedelic rock band from Los Angeles, in southern California who were active in the 1960s and early 1970s. They are known for songs such as "40 Miles,", they began with a basic 60s rock approach but expanded their creative palatte to incorporate esoteric and baroque elements on the 1967 album, Another Day, Another Lifetime. They disbanded in the early 1970s; the band was founded in Los Angeles in 1965 as the Reasons. The band's membership consisted of Warren Hansen on lead vocals and organ, the band's principal songwriter, as well as Mark Bird on lead guitar, Mike Butte on rhythm guitar, Chuck Spieth on bass, Tim Harrison on drums; the group play gigs in the Los Angeles area and their manager, Steven Vail, succeeded in getting the band signed to 20th Century Fox's record label. They recorded two 7-inch singles for 20th Century Fox|20th Century Fox; the first of these was recorded in the fall of 1966 and released in early 1967. It featured the song, "40 Miles," which became a hit in Bakersfield California, reaching # 19 on the local charts, was backed with the B-side "Bus Token."
They followed up with "People Saying, People Seeing," which came out in April. Shortly thereafter, Mike Butte departed from the group, 20th Century Fox released them from their contract; the band was able to secure arrangements with VMC Records and became the first act to sign with the label. They went into the studio to record a full-length album, Another Day, Another Lifetime, which included baroque orchestration arranged by Gene Page on some of its tracks and saw the band further explore eclectic and esoteric influences in a fashion not dissimilar to the Left Banke, but retaining the harder rocking garage-based edge of their previous work. Warren Hanson wrote all of the songs on the album during the sessions and invented an instrument called the "plasmatar," which sounds similar to an electric cello and can be heard on some of tracks; the album featured songs such as the chant-like theme "Another Day, Another Time," "Sweet December," "Now to You," "So Much More," and "Time M." In 1968 the band played at the Miss Teen Screen Magazine pageant held at the Hollywood Palladium and in the local TV documentary Gramophone to Groovy.
Shortly thereafter they released a back-to-basics single "I'm Not Alone" b/w "Sweet December" on VMC Records. The band broke up in the early 1970s. Bassist Chuck Spieth, died in a house fire at the age of 21. Band leader Warren Hansen went on to become an engineer engaged in environmental issues. Former drummer Tim Harrison is a property manager in Venice and Mark Bird, former lead guitarist, is a physician in Orange County, California. In the intervening years their work has come to the attention of garage rock and psychedelic collectors and enthusiasts. Two of their songs "40 Miles" and "I'm Not Alone" were re-issued in 1996 on the Pebbles, Volume 9: Southern California 2 CD, put out by Greg Shaw's AIP label. In 2001, Jamie Records re-issued Another Day Another Lifetime.

David (1979 film)
David is a 1979 West German film by director Peter Lilienthal. It tells the story of a rabbi's son in Germany during the Holocaust, who tries to raise money to escape to Mandate Palestine. David follows David Singer, who comes of age in Nazi Berlin; the film reveals the struggles for identity and survival that overlapped among the Jews of war-torn Europe the young. “Father says we must be proud of being Jewish now,” David tells his brother Leo, who tries to camouflage his Jewish identity by wearing a Nazi uniform. But the yellow star that David and his fellow Jews are forced to wear is not a mark of Jewish pride; when Jews’ essential identity became a death sentence in Nazi Germany, its value was called into question for so many Jews who endured the Holocaust. The film reveals the unfolding and progression of the war against the Jews in Germany, as seen from the limited perspective of one young boy; as he navigates through dangerous streets and railway cars, we observe with him the effects of Hitler’s policies on daily life in Berlin and on relations between Jews and non-Jews.
Together with David, we witness the steady removal of the city's Jews. The film opens in pre-War Germany, depicting the young protagonist’s experience of the rampant anti-Semitism that would soon grow into the Holocaust. In the first scene, young David is harassed by a group of German schoolchildren who beat him and taunt him with the words “Jew pig.” A communal celebration of Purim — the Jewish holiday that commemorates the saving of the Jews of ancient Persia from extermination — foreshadows the impending war. David’s father, the congregation rabbi, delivers a sermon that describes the attempted annihilation of the Purim story, a grim portent of what is to come, but the scene is a case of dramatic irony: Rabbi Singer is not aware of, or does not want to acknowledge, the relevance of his own words to the situation in early Nazi Germany. When, in the middle of the celebration, a group of Germans march by the synagogue chanting “Jews get out, Jews get out,” he insists that they are in fact only calling out to the city’s youth, that their chant is actually: “Youth come out, youth come out.”
The film is compelling in its depiction of the intimate space of the Singer family and their interactions with one another — marked by love and the all-too-real fear of imminent loss and separation. When the rabbi is forced to watch his synagogue set aflame by the Nazis, returns home with a swastika emblazoned on his head, he insists that the important thing is that the family is alive and together. In 1979 David won three awards at the 29th Berlin International Film Festival: Golden Bear - Peter Lilienthal Interfilm Award - Peter Lilienthal OCIC Award - Peter LilenthalThe same year, David won two awards at the German Film Awards: Outstanding Individual Achievement- Walter Taub Outstanding Feature Film- David Mario Fischel...
