Is this why you have all conspired against me, why none of you told me when my son went in league with Yishai’s son? None of you is concerned about me! Otherwise you would have told me that my son had incited my servant to become my enemy, as he is now.”
Sha’ul’s descent is so sad. He is willing to kill his son right after he claims he wants David dead to see Johnathan become king after his reign ends. Sha’ul sees everyone in his court with suspicion questioning their motives and loyalty. When he orders the cohenin to be murdered, his men won’t do it. Doeg, the Edomite, a foreigner is willing to kill these holy men he has no connection to. Sha’ul has strayed so far. He was supposed to protect Israel as king, but he jas become a tyrant. Sha’ul’s rise and fall are a warning. Cleave to the Father and pray that he keep you on the true path all your days.
