It should be noted that "David" is an old
Cannaanite god, which is likely the reason there would be an inscription with his name on it. In 1975 at
Ebla, Syria, there were found 20,000 clay tablets, 4500 years old, a thousand years before the biblical
David and Solomon supposedly lived. These tablets contain the names of various apparent Canaanite
gods, such as "Ab-ra-mu (Abraham), E-sa-um (Esau), Ish-ma-ilu (Ishmael), even Is-ra-ilu (Israel), and
from later periods names like Da-'u'dum (David) and Sa-'u-lum (Saul)."
