He accepted the anointing as God’s promise, though the anointing did not provide any information on how or when he would become king. Therefore, David would wait for God to fulfill his promise in his way and at his time.

Why is the mantle important?

The Earth’s mantle plays an important role in the evolution of the crust and provides the thermal and mechanical driving forces for plate tectonics. Because subducted plates are relatively cool, they decrease the temperature of nearby mantle, leaving relatively warm mantle in the regions between two subduction zones.

What is the mantle layer?

The mantle is the mostly-solid bulk of Earth’s interior. The mantle lies between Earth’s dense, super-heated core and its thin outer layer, the crust. The mantle is about 2,900 kilometers (1,802 miles) thick, and makes up a whopping 84% of Earth’s total volume.

What is underneath bedrock?

A tree grows from cracks in the bedrock. Bedrock is the hard, solid rock beneath surface materials such as soil and gravel. Bedrock is the hard, solid rock beneath surface materials such as soil and gravel. Bedrock also underlies sand and other sediments on the ocean floor.

Is there water under bedrock?

Bedrock can also become broken and fractured, creating spaces that can fill with water. And some bedrock, such as limestone, are dissolved by water — which results in large cavities that fill with water. Here is groundwater seeping out from between rock layers and freezing in the winter temperatures.

Is Bedrock igneous?

Bedrock is made up of igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic rock, and it often serves as the parent material (the source of rock and mineral fragments) for regolith and soil. A bedrock deposit that occurs at Earth’s surface is called an outcrop.
