It draws on material from the Talmud, Midrash, Kabbala, and depth psychology. The pattern of David's behavior is traced through the biblical story and the growth of his soul is observed through his relationship to four important women in his life. David is seen through the lens of the Hermetic archetype, which is not only suffused with trickster qualities but also embodies opposites and the ability to communicate wisdom between the upper and lower worlds. As a result of encountering the opposites consciously, removing anima projections and integrating his shadow, he journeys toward individuation. The question is addressed: what qualities did David possess that enabled him to carry the projection as the ancestor of the future messianic figure? The study suggests that the fatherly David's suffering, and his willingness honestly to confront and change his behavior, made him beloved in the eyes of his people and God.
