Gad, the Prophet
He was with David when he fled from Saul, and gave him counsel. 1 Samuel 22:5 . Whether he continued with David during his rejection is not recorded. He was with him at the close of his reign, and to him was given the painful duty of announcing God's judgements upon David for numbering the people. He is called David's 'seer,' which would seem to imply that he had been with him all along. 2 Samuel 24:11-19; 1 Chronicles 21:9-19; 2 Chronicles 29:25 . The acts of David were written in "THE BOOK OF GAD the seer," of which there is no further record, and which has not been handed down. 1 Chronicles 29:29 .
