Heavy is the Crown

1 Chronicles 18-21

“So Hanun seized David’s ambassadors and shaved them, cut off their robes at the buttocks, and sent them back to David in shame.” 1 Chronicles‬ ‭19‬:‭4‬ ‭NLT‬ This seems like something you’d see in some comedy-hour act these days, but it was seriously humiliating and dishonoring back then.

“Then David went to Rabbah and removed the crown from the king’s head, and it was placed on his own head. The crown was made of gold and set with gems, and he found that it weighed seventy-five pounds….” 1 Chronicles‬ ‭20‬:‭2‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Can you even imagine wearing something almost half your weight on top of your head?

“In another battle with the Philistines at Gath, they encountered a huge man with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, twenty-four in all, who was also a descendant of the giants.” ‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭20‬:‭6‬ ‭NLT‬‬ How do you not stop and stare?
