28:6 For I have chosen him to be a son to Me, and I will be a father to him
King David’s son Shlomo is chosen by God as the heir to his father’s throne and the eternal monarchy of the People of Israel. In addition to the name Shlomo, he is also known as Yedidya, which means ‘beloved of God’ (II Samuel 12:25). Radak suggests that Hashem wants his name to be Shlomo (שלמה), from the Hebrew word shalom (שלום), meaning ‘peace’, because during his reign God would bless him and the People of Israel with peace. But Shlomo is also Yedidya, the beloved of God, as reflected in this verse. Indeed, both of his names accurately describe his accomplishments. During King Shlomo’s reign, the Nation of Israel achieves the greatest heights, peace with the other nations, as well closeness to Hashem through service in the Beit Hamikdash.
