    David was quite violent, and he did not die a violent death... not to mention that he was "a man after God's own heart."

    I'm going with YES.

    Psalms 51:1-12 NAS77
    1 For the choir director. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Be gracious to me, O God, according to Thy lovingkindness; According to the greatness of Thy compassion blot out my transgressions.
    2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.
    3 For I know my transgressions, And my sin is ever before me.
    4 Against Thee, Thee only, I have sinned, And done what is evil in Thy sight, So that Thou art justified when Thou dost speak, And blameless when Thou dost judge.
    5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.
    6 Behold, Thou dost desire truth in the innermost being, And in the hidden part Thou wilt make me know wisdom.
    7 Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
    8 Make me to hear joy and gladness, Let the bones which Thou hast broken rejoice.
    9 Hide Thy face from my sins, And blot out all my iniquities.
    10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
    11 Do not cast me away from Thy presence, And do not take Thy Holy Spirit from me.
    12 Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation, And sustain me with a willing spirit.

    Now I have a couple of questions.

    Q: Why didn't God allow David to build the Temple?

    A: "But the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 'You have shed much blood, and have waged great wars; you shall not build a house to My name, because you have shed so much blood on the earth before Me.
    1 Chronicles 22:8 NAS77

    Q: What manner of violent death did David suffer?

    A: Now David the son of Jesse reigned over all Israel. And the period which he reigned over Israel was forty years; he reigned in Hebron seven years and in Jerusalem thirty-three years. Then he died in a ripe old age, full of days, riches and honor; and his son Solomon reigned in his place.
    1 Chronicles 29:26-28 NAS77

    To know what is right and not do it is the worst cowardice.
    Confucius

    So, are you implying, CTB, that violence is a sin?

    This shows he repented of his sinS, when he puts the word in singular?
