King Saul
King Saul was the first king of Israel and for a time was a good king, even prophesying (1st Sam 10:11-13) but God rejected him because of his disobedience to God. He never fully obeyed God and David was chosen to be the next king even though it would be roughly ten years before David would actually sit on the throne as King Saul sought after David’s life before he finally died.

King David
King David is the favorite of all kings for the Jews and in his lineage of course is Jesus Christ (Matt 1:6-17). Even though he committed adultery and conspired to have Bathsheba’s husband murdered, he repented (Psalm 51) and became Israel’s greatest earthly king and one of the most prolific writers in the Bible with the Book of Psalms.

King Solomon
King Solomon was the third king of Israel and as the son of David and became the heir to the throne. He later married foreign wives who led his heart away from the Lord and into idolatry but he would later repent and wrote the greatest book of wisdom ever written; the Book of Proverbs as well as the wisdom literature of the Book of Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon.
