BibleNew TestamentActs

22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave their testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.

This is an example of a composite reference, combining Psalm 89:20 (“I have found David”), 1 Samuel 13:14 (“to be a man after my heart”) and Isaiah 44:28 (“who will accomplish everything I want him to do”).
