    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • King Saul is still in pursuit of David. We clearly see the difference in the character of these two men by how David treats the man seeking to kill him.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • David and his men are hiding in a cave and along comes King Saul using the cave to relieve himself. David's men said to him, "This is the day about which the Lord said to you,
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • 'I will give your enemy into your hand, and you can do to him whatever seems appropriate to you.' " David slipped up and cut off the corner of King Saul’s robe.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Afterward David's conscience bothered him because he had cut off an edge of Saul's robe. 6 He said to his men, "May the Lord keep me far away from doing such a thing to my lord,
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • who is the Lord's chosen one, by extending my hand against him. After all, he is the Lord's chosen one." David restrained his men with these words and did not allow them to rise up against Saul.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Then Saul left the cave and started down the road. 8 Afterward David got up and went out of the cave. He called out after Saul, "My lord, O king!"
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • When Saul looked behind him, David bowed his face to the ground and kneeled down. 9 David said to Saul, "Why do you pay attention when men say, 'David is seeking to do you harm'?
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • 10 Today your own eyes see how the Lord delivered you — this very day — into my hands in the cave. Someone told me to kill you,
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • but I had pity on you and said, 'I will not extend my hand against my lord, for he is the Lord's chosen one.' 11 Look, my father, and see the edge of your robe in my hand
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • When I cut off the edge of your robe, I didn't kill you. So realize and understand that I am not planning evil or rebellion.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Even though I have not sinned against you, you are waiting in ambush to take my life.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • 12 May the Lord judge between the two of us, and may the Lord vindicate me over you, but my hand will not be against you.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Meanwhile, Samuel died, and all Israel assembled and mourned him. They buried him at his home in Ramah.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Next we read about the wealthy man Nabal who refuses to share his laborers’ food with David and his men.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Nabal had a wise & beautiful wife Abigail. She learns from a servant of David’s request.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • The servant also told how David and his men had protected Nabal’s men earlier all the time they were together in the field.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Abigail is wise and takes it upon herself to send food to David. She says to David,
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • “ My lord should not pay attention to this wicked man Nabal. He simply lives up to his name! His name means 'fool,' and he is indeed foolish
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • David tells her she had saved all the men of Nabal’s house because his intent was to attack Nabal and not leave one male living.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Abigail returned to Nabal’s house but did not mention what she had done till the next morning. When she told him he had a stroke and was paralyzed.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • About 10 days later he died.
      • David was happy the Lord had vindicated him.
      • He asked Abigail to become his wife and she did.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • David went to the place where King Saul was camped and found him and his General, Abner asleep.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • One of David’s men told him he could kill King Saul with one jab of a spear, a second wouldn’t be necessary.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • David orders a man to take King Saul’s spear and water jug, then they left and stood on a hill across from the camp.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • It’s kind of surprising what David does next. He calls out to Abner and dresses him down for not protecting the King.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Saul recognized David’s voice. Again David tells him he had the opportunity to kill the King, but spared his life.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • He was not willing to take the life of the Lord’s chosen one. Saul crossed over to David to retrieve his spear and water jug.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • They seem to exchange heartfelt words, then each goes their own way.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • What a man of faith & character David must have been. Twice he has been in the position to take the life of the one seeking to kill him…
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • …but his faith and respect for the Lord and His anointed inclines him to spare that life. David goes to live amongst the Philistines.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Saul had removed the mediums and magicians from the land. This is important to know because when King Saul inquired of God he could get no answer.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • So he chose to get his answers another way, by having a witch or medium conjure up Samuel from the grave.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Since he had made a big stink about getting rid of witches, mediums and magicians he disguised himself and approached the witch or medium of Endor.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • When she conjured up Samuel he said something to the effect, “Why are you bothering me by bringing me up?”
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • King Saul told him The Lord had stopped answering him so he wanted Samuel to tell him what to do. Samuel asked why was he inquiring of him now?
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • The Lord is doing just what Samuel had prophesied. He is tearing the kingdom out of Saul’s hands and giving it to David.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • King Saul fell on the ground terrified by what Samuel had told him.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • While David and his men were in battle the Amalekites attacked Ziklag, burned it and carried off all the women and children including two of David’s wives Ahinoam and Abigail.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • David becomes very upset because his men were considering stoning him. David inquired of The Lord asking if he should pursue the raiding band.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • The Lord responded that he should pursue them and carry out a rescue.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • During this pursuit they run across an Egyptian slave whose owner had left him when he was ill.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • The Egyptian led them to the raiding band. David’s army caught them and recovered everything they had captured, including his two wives.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • In a battle with the Philistines King Saul's sons Jonathan, Abinadab, and Malki-Shua are killed. King Saul is severely injured by an arrow.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • He asked his armor bearer to finish killing him with his sword. The armor bearer refused so King Saul killed himself by falling on his sword.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • When his armor bearer saw that Saul was dead, he also fell on his own sword and died with him.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • So Saul, his three sons, his armor bearer, and all his men died together that day.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • So Saul died because he was unfaithful to the Lord and did not obey the Lord's instructions; he even tried to conjure up underworld spirits.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • He did not seek the Lord's guidance; so the Lord killed him and transferred the kingdom to David son of Jesse.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • A man from King Saul’s camp came to David and reported King Saul & Jonathan were dead.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • He even takes credit for obeying King Saul’s request to be killed after being shot with the arrow.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • David could not believe anyone would say they killed The Lord’s anointed. He had the man put to death.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Ish-Bosheth, one of the sons of Saul who, when his father and brothers were slain in the battle of Gilboa, was proclaimed king over Israel by Abner, the captain of Saul's host, at Mahanaim.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Ishbosheth was 40 years old at this time and reigned over Israel 2 years. Judah, however, proclaimed David its king.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • The consequence was war. The house of David prevailed against the house of Saul,
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • but the war did not come to a close until Abner, angry on account of the rebuke he suffered from Ish-Bosheth for his unlawful intimacy with Rizpah, Saul's concubine, joined David.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • David's condition to return to him Michal his wife, before peace could be made, was fulfilled by Ish-Bosheth,
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • but it was not until after Abner's death that Ish-Bosheth seems to have given up hopes of retaining his power.
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • Ish-Bosheth is murdered by his own captains. David punished the murderers who had expected reward and buried Ish-Bosheth in the grave of Abner at Hebron. (ISBE)
    • Recap of This Weeks Reading
      • 2 Samuel 5:5 NET In Hebron he reigned over Judah for seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned for thirty-three years over all Israel and Judah.
    • Psalm 95
      • Of the author of this psalm nothing is certainly known. It is, however, ascribed to David in the Latin Vulgate and in the Septuagint; and in Hebrews 4:7 NET.
    • Psalm 95
      • So God again ordains a certain day, "Today," speaking through David after so long a time, as in the words quoted before, " O, that today you would listen as he speaks! Do not harden your hearts ."
    • Psalm 95
      • This language may refer in general to the Book of Psalms, called from their chief author, the Psalms of David; or it may mean that David was the author of this particular psalm.
    • Psalm 95
      • Either supposition would meet all that is demanded by the quotation in the Epistle to the Hebrews. There is, however, no improbability in the supposition that the psalm was written by David, as he doubtless composed many songs to which his name was not attached.
    • Psalm 95
      • Nothing is known of the “occasion” on which the psalm was composed. It is a general song of praise, and contains only such language as might be proper in any period of the Jewish history after the people were established in the promised land.
    • Psalm 95
      • It is, indeed, a “Hebrew” song; it has reference to the Hebrew people; and it contains such arguments and appeals as would be particularly adapted to influence them.
    • Psalm 95
      • The psalm consists of three parts:
      • 1. An exhortation to praise and worship God,
      • Psalms 95:1 NET Come! Let's sing for joy to the LORD!
    • Psalm 95
      • Let's shout out praises to our protector who delivers us! 2 Let’s enter his presence with thanksgiving! Let's shout out to him in celebration!
    • Psalm 95
      • 2. Reasons for offering such praise.
      • He is a great God.
      • Psalms 95:3 NET For the LORD is a great God, a great king who is superior to all gods.
    • Psalm 95
      • (b) He has made all things, and all things are under his control.
      • Psalms 95:4 NET The depths of the earth are in his hand, and the mountain peaks belong to him.
    • Psalm 95
      • 5 The sea is his, for he made it. His hands formed the dry land.
    • Psalm 95
      • (c) He is our Maker.
      • Psalms 95:6 NET Come! Let's bow down and worship! Let's kneel before the LORD, our creator!
    • Psalm 95
      • (d) He is our God, and we are his people.
      • Psalms 95:7a,b,c NET For he is our God; we are the people of his pasture, the sheep he owns.
    • Psalm 95
      • 3. An exhortation not to harden the heart; not to be perverse and rebellious.
      • Psalms 95:7d NET Today, if only you would obey him!
    • Psalm 95
      • 8 He says, "Do not be stubborn like they were at Meribah, like they were that day at Massah in the wilderness,
    • Psalm 95
      • 9 where your ancestors challenged my authority, and tried my patience, even though they had seen my work.
    • Psalm 95
      • 10 For forty years I was continually disgusted with that generation, and I said, 'These people desire to go astray; they do not obey my commands.'
    • Psalm 95
      • 11 So I made a vow in my anger, 'They will never enter into the resting place I had set aside for them.' "
    • Psalm 95
      • This is enforced by the example of the Israelites in the wilderness, and by the results which followed from their tempting God, and provoking his wrath.
    • Psalm 95
      • The appeal is founded on the fact that, in consequence of their rebellion, they were shut out of the promised land. On the same principle, if we are rebellious, we shall be excluded from heaven. (Barnes)
    • What’s Your Decision?
      • Will we heed the psalmist plea?
      • Psalms 95:7 NET For he is our God; we are the people of his pasture, the sheep he owns. Today, if only you would obey him!
    • What’s Your Decision?
      • Will we end up like the disobedient in Moses time and miss out on “The Promised Land,” Heaven?
