1 Kings 11:36; 1 Kings 15:4; 2 Samuel 21:17

36 Yet to his son xI will give one tribe, that David my servant may always have ba lamp before me in Jerusalem, ythe city where I have chosen to put my name.


Nevertheless, for David's sake the Lord his God gave him ya lamp in Jerusalem, setting up his son after him, and establishing Jerusalem,


17 But Abishai the son of Zeruiah came to his aid and attacked the Philistine and killed him. Then David's men swore to him, pYou shall no longer go out with us to battle, lest you quench qthe lamp of Israel.
