Dovid Hamelech Didn't Die, Hashem Concealed Him

It is known that Dovid Hamelech was the final rectification of the blemish of the sin of Adam Harishon, and thus it was fitting that he will not die and would live forever like Adam Harishon (who, if he hadn't sinned, would have lived forever). Dovid saw that he will live only the 70 years that Adam Harishon donated to him, and this was hard for him and he suffered over this--that it must be that he will die for some sin, or that he didn't rectify the blemish that responsible for, and so he suffered greatly.

But in truth, our Sages said (Rosh Hashana 25) "Dovid Melech Yisroel Chay v'Kayam" -- David King of Israel Lives and Endures -- and that his death was nothing but a concealment [histalkus], and he didn't die, and he will be revealed speedily, as is stated "My servant Dovid is a Nosi for them forever", and Moshiach is Dovid himself, as stated in the Talmud (Sanhedrin 98). The Holy One, blessed be He, did this since he is likened to the moon, that its light is reduced now and in the future will be renewed, so too Dovid's kingship will be revealed speedily.

Dawn,
Is this historically accurate?
If so, coincidences of the biblical kind really do repeat or perhaps it is static reality, we evolve in place, we actually never left home?

I may be thinking in a stream of consciousness and so do apologize if I have missed the wisdom in this post.

Yes, we can
