The Book of 2 Samuel does not identify its author but it could not have been the Prophet Samuel, because he died in 1 Samuel. The possible writers are Nathan or Gad, (1 Chron 29:29). Originally, both 1 and 2 Samuel was one book but the translators of the Septuagint separated them. The events of 1 Samuel span approximately 100 years, from 1100 B.C. to 1000 B.C. The events of 2 Samuel cover another 40 years, which would place the date of writing sometime after 960 B.C. 2 Samuel is a record of King David’s reign.

Aleph/Tav ALERT: David questions the Amalekite that ended Saul’s life and ask him in 2 Samuel 1:14 why were you not afraid to put forth your hand to destroy את anointed of יהוה? The exact scripture is repeated in 2 Samuel 1:16 states, your blood will be upon your own head; for your mouth has testified against you, saying, I have slain את anointed of יהוה…implying clearly that Saul was Aleph/Tav’s anointed of יהוה Father as king of Israel and was an extension of את Y’shua before יהוה Father. 2 Samuel 3:10 states, and to set up את throne of David over Israel and over Judah…clearly implying that Y’shua set up His throne through David and this is confirmed in 2 Samuel 5:3 which states, and they anointed את David king over Israel. Concerning the building of a house for יהוה 2 Samuel 7:13 states, He will build a house for My name and I will establish את throne of his kingdom forever…implying the throne of David is an extension of the throne of את Y’shua.
Regarding the sin of David with Bath-sheban את Nathan confronts David in 2 Samuel 12:9 states, Why have you despised את commandment of יהוה…which resulted in judgment in Sam 12:14 states, because by this deed you have given great occasion to blaspheme to את enemies of יהוה…followed by 2 Samuel 12:15 And struck יהוה את the child that Uriah’s wife bare to David…which causes David to 2 Samuel 12:16 Therefore sought David את Elohim for the child…which leads to 2 Samuel 12:24 which states, And comforted David את Bath-sheba his wife and went in to her and lay with her: and she gave birth to a son and he called את his name Solomon. And יהוה loved him…Solomon is named by את. Through the placement of these Aleph/Tav את Symbols we clearly see the presence of the Yah-head operating.
