2:251 So they defeated them by God's leave. Thus, David killed Goliath, and God gave him waātāhu the kingship l-mul'ka and the wisdom wal-ḥik'mata and taught him waʿallamahu what mimmā He wished yashāu. Had it not been for God pushing the people to challenge one another, then the earth would have long been corrupted. But God has done favor over the worlds.*
4:163 We have inspired you as We have inspired Noah and the prophets after him. We inspired Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the Patriarchs, and Jesus, and Job, and Jonah, and Aaron, and Solomon; and We have given David waātaynā dāwūda the zabūran.
5:78 Cursed are those who have rejected from among the Children of Israel by the tongue lisāni of David dāwūda and Jesus waʿīsā son of Mary. That is for what they have disobeyed, and for what they transgressed.*
6:84 We granted him wawahabnā Isaac and Jacob, both of whom We guided; and Noah We guided all kullan hadaynā from before; and from his progeny is David, Solomon, Job, Joseph, Moses, and Aaron. It is such that We reward the good doers.
17:55 Your Lord is fully aware of who is in the heavens and the earth. We have preferred some prophets over others, and We gave waātaynā David dāwūda the zabūran.*
21:78 And David and Solomon, when they gave judgment yaḥkumāni in the case of the crop l-ḥarthi that was damaged by the sheep of the people, and We were witness to their judgment liḥuk'mihim shāhidīna.
21:79 So We gave Solomon the correct understanding fafahhamnāhā, and both wakullan of them We have given ātaynā wisdom ḥuk'man and knowledge waʿil'man. We committed the mountains l-jibāla with David to praise yusabbiḥ'na as well as the birds wal-ṭayra. This is what We did.
21:80 We taught him waʿallamnāhu the making of labūsin (armour) for you to protect you lituḥ'ṣinakum from your basikum. Are you then thankful?
27:15 We bestowed upon David and Solomon knowledge ʿil'man, and they both said, "Praise be to God who preferred us over many of His acknowledging servants."
27:16 Solomon inherited wawaritha from David, and he said, "O people, we have been taught ʿullim'nā how to understand the speech manṭiqa of creatures that fly l-ṭayri, and we have been given waūtīnā from everything min kulli shayin. This is indeed an evident grace."
34:10 We granted David blessings faḍlan from Us: "O mountains yājibālu, glorify with him, as well as the birds." We softened wa-alannā the iron l-ḥadīda for him .
34:13 They made for him what he desired of maḥārība, and statues watamāthīla, and pools of deep reservoirs wajifānin, and heavy pots kal-jawābi. "O family of David, work to show thanks." Only a few of My servants are appreciative.*
38:17 Be patient to what they say, and recall Our servant David, the dhā l-aydi. He was innahu obedient awwābun.
38:22 When they entered upon David, he was startled by them. They said, "Have no fear. We are two who have disputed khaṣmāni, and one has wronged baghā the other baʿḍunā ʿalā baʿḍin, so judge fa-uḥ'kum between us baynanā with truth bil-ḥaqi, and do not wrong us walā tush'ṭiṭ, and guide us wa-ih'dinā to the right path ilā sawāi l-ṣirāṭi."
38:24 He said, "He has wronged you ẓalamaka by asking bisuāli to combine your lambs with his lambs. Many who mix their properties take advantage layabghī of one another, except those who acknowledge and do good works, and these are very few." David guessed that We had tested him, so he sought forgiveness from his Lord, and fell down wakharra rākiʿan, and repented wa-anāba.*
38:26 O David, We have made you jaʿalnāka a successor khalīfatan on earth. Therefore, you shall judge fa-uḥ'kum among bayna the people l-nāsi with truth bil-ḥaqi, and do not follow desire walā tattabiʿi l-hawā, lest it diverts you fayuḍillaka from the path sabīli of God l-lahi. Indeed, those who stray off the path of God will have a severe retribution for forgetting the day of Reckoning.
38:30 To David We granted wawahabnā lidāwūda Solomon sulaymāna. What an excellent and obedient servant
