The sacred text provides a brief explanation of God’s providential choice of installing the young shepherd David into leadership over the nation of Israel. In the final verses of Psalm 78, verses 70-72, the Bible says:

“He chose David also his servant and took him from the sheep folds: From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance. So, he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands” (KJV).
