A few weeks ago I was being told I made up lies about King David as my mother told me years ago David Got syphilis in his lifetime. She found the scripture for me and I wanted to state that I never lied about King David.

David Admits he sinned Psalm 38:3 "There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin"

David describes his symptoms 38:7 "For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh"


Sounds like syphilis to me.

God is in charge of diseases to. King David did not have syphilis.

Isaiah 45
7 I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things.'

Deuteronomy 32
39 'Now see that I, even I, am He, And there is no God besides Me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; Nor is there any who can deliver from My hand.

If you read Psalms 38:13 & 14 you could come to the conclusion that David was deaf. But he wasn't ! Nor did he have a disease. Take note, that the word "disease is in italics. This tells you that it was added by man. The word "loathsome" should read "loathsomeness" = meaning = stink

Look at Numbers 11:19 & 20 - God is saying that you will eat for a month , until your nostrils (smell for food) will stink (loathsome). When one is hungry, then food smells so good, but when you are over full, then food stinketh (turns you stomach). The same is true with Psalm 38:7 , in that he had many wives and had much sex life, and it was thought of by David, as being an over abundance to the point it now stinketh.

While we will never know for sure and everything is open for interpretation--

Jeff Joseph has a valid interpretation given the fact:

* While many ancient cultures (no pun intended) recognized some medicinal effects of some molds, penicillin was not discovered until the ~1920s. and latex contraceptives were not invented yet (late 1800s). While its possible that king david had access to infection treatments, isn't mold and mildew at least in houses considered unclean?

* David had 6 wives and 'numerous' concubines (2 Samuel 5:13; 1 Chronicles 3:1-9, 14:3)


Can't take credit for the above, just pieced together...

Many theorize and diagnose ailments of historical figures using symptoms from doctor logs, personal diaries, etc.... Some suggest Lincoln had Marfan's (sp.?) syndrome. Some interesting discoveries have been made about Napoleon's death.



While some symptoms of syphillis include mental degeneration, I'm not going to go as far as to say that is why David was caught dancing naked... ;)

Psalms 38:13 & 14
This is referring to David acting as if he we being willingly deaf and not listening to God by sleeping around when he knew should not be doing that. See David was admitting that he was stupid for what he did and part of why God delivered him was because everytime he screwed up he repented and actually ment it.

The purpose of this being written is telling us not to make the same mistake David did in the first place. So you won't have to go and repent if you don't commit the sin in the first place.



If David did not get syphilis then why would all his lovers stay away from him? The answer is they didn't want to get infected from him.

You are reading WAAAAAAAAAAAY too much in that verse. How can you jump to such a conclusion? Were you there? Are you a doctor??? Did you diagnos David? Your accusations are grievious and unfounded. Not only that, but the point you are attempting to prove serves no good purpose.
