The royal brothers all look to each other, waiting to see who will be the first to speak.
Two of the brothers looked in the same direction when they heard the shuffling of feet moving.
It was Prince Gabriel, who had broken rank first, sauntering forward with all eyes on him. He humbles himself when standing across from the king, their fight, a distant memory. “Our focus needs to be on protecting our people and our kingdom,” he professes and asks. “What happen during your time at King David’s court? Did he allow you to speak with the Shadow?”
King Robert recounted King David’s trickery, in which his brothers were not surprised. “The body we believe was of someone who had perished a week prior.”
“Do you believe the Shadow is alive?” Prince Fabian said.
In which point the king replies, “I don’t know.”
“Have you spoken with the Seeker? Has he explain why King David would conceal the Shadow from you?” he queries. “King David must’ve known his deceit will be uncovered.”
“Soon,” the king responds, sliding his eyes to a quiet Gabriel. “Brother, what’s wrong? You make me feel uneasy when you’ve been silent for this long.”
All eyes immediately bounce to him.
“Gabriel, do you know something?” Fabian inquires.
Gabriel’s thick brows bend inwards, as he bites his lower lip. He has an answer to Fabian’s question, one he is not too thrilled with sharing nor revealing how he pertain this information. He felt, chained to a wall-like a prisoner-being tortured for the whereabouts of a traitor. He knew he needed to speak, no matter the consequence to himself. His brother, King Robert,...

... King.” He elaborates, “A King, shows mercy to his enemies, and a Ruler, conquers all those that stand against him mercilessness with an iron-fist.”
“Gabriel, I have no intention of showing mercy to my adversary, but only if all talks of peace fail.”
Cipher’s lips curve upward into a proud grin, feeling his words were not lost on one of his nephews.
However, the king’s facial expression is giving him away. On the surface, his words seem to agree with his uncle, but underneath the exterior, he agrees more and more with Gabriel’s way of thinking.
The study’s doors open with Prince Fabian, the Royal Seeker, and Advisor Thomas entering.
The Seeker, drape in an auburn color cloak with white trim, stood before the king’s desk. His straight, shoulder length, sandy-brown hair was being covered by a hood, which slightly conceal his face-only his rounded chin was visible.

- In the article Tales of the Bandit: The Rise of King David in the Hill Country of Judah, authors Finklestein and Silbermann make use of demographical, social, and political evidence in order to attempt to conclude if the biblical account of David was accurate in its recall. With this data, the authors determine that the story dates back to the ninth century and began circulating as oral traditions.

- ... Each individual has the ability to rid themselves of immorality, yet the vast majority of individuals do nothing and just allow the injustice to continue. Thoreau supports his claim through illustrating how individuals oppose unjust laws, yet ignore their ability to make changes within their own country. “A wise man will not leave the right mercy of chance nor wish it” (Thoreau 4). A man cannot allow injustice to occur and must protest the government in order to achieve much needed justice. Having men who follow their morality rather than an unjust law has more value....

- ... Why is this so important. As Susan simply put it, “There is so much temptation out there.” Therefore, we need mature accountability partners that are willing to share our burdens (Galatians 6:2) and will pray with and for us. There is no way any of us can endure this system of things alone. And the scriptures support this fact. Mark 10:27a says, Humanly speaking, it is impossible…. If you don’t think that’s true, look at the world around us. We live in a broken, jack up society. Not because of God’s doing, but man’s.... [tags: Bible, New Testament, Christianity]

He had endured much persecution from Saul and other enemies but did not become bitter, did not lift his hand against Saul, as he was the Lord’s anointed, but placed all his hope in God, and the Lord delivered him from all his enemies....
