1 Samuel 29 - 31

1 Samuel
1 SamuelSteve Gregg

In 1 Samuel 29-31, two storylines are followed. David, who remains loyal to Israel, refuses to kill Saul despite the Philistine princes urging him to do so. Meanwhile, Saul, in a desperate attempt to prophesy his future, consults with the medium at Endor, ultimately leading to his death on the battlefield along with his sons. David, who had been living with Achish for four months, returns to find his city raided, and with the help of God, successfully retrieves everything that was taken. Despite not being loyal to David, the Philistines are defeated by Israel, leading to David being accepted as the new king.
