God of your father David

The name “God of your father David” was spoken to two kings of Judah. The prophet Elijah sent a letter from God to warn King Jehoram that God was about to punish the king for his evil. In a second incident, Isaiah delivered a message to King Hezekiah that included the same name for God.

All the kings of Judah were descended from King David; in a sense, David was the father of them all.
