Probably a son of the Samuel Ḥalayo of Bersak () who was in correspondence with Simon ben Ẓemaḥ Duran. David, who was a ḥazzan or cantor, was a pupil of Simon Duran, and it was at his suggestion that the latter wrote the commentary on Isaac Ghayyat's "Baruk Asher Ashash." David extols this commentary in verses.
