David was successful in all the missions on which Saul sent him, and so Saul made him an officer
As David was returning after fighting the enemies, women from every town in Israel came out singing joyful songs, dancing, and playing tambourines and lyres.
Saul did not like this, and he became very angry. They will be making him king next!" …he was jealous and suspicious of David. Saul told his son Jonathan and all his officials that he planned to kill David.
Jonathan told him, "My father is trying to kill you. Please be careful tomorrow morning; hide in some secret place and stay there.
Jonathan praised David to Saul and said, everything he has done has been a great help to you. He risked his life when he killed Goliath, and the LORD won a great victory for Israel. When you saw it, you were glad.
Saul was convinced by what Jonathan said and made a vow in the LORD's name that he would not kill David. So Jonathan called David and told him everything; then he took him to Saul, and David served the king as he had before.
