  5. 5. 12 AndSaul was afraid of David,because the Lord was with him,and was departed from Saul. 5
  6. 6. Acts 18:13 Therefore Saul removed him from him, andmade him his captain over a thousand; and he wentout and came in before the people. Saul demoted David -- no longer with Saul in battle -- he was merely a captain over 1000. Did this cause David to act out? 6
  7. 7. 14 And David behaved himself wisely in all hisways; and the Lord was with him.David continued to behave as the man of God, because he was Gods man. No matter what others may do, we must be like David -- Walking with God, and living our lives wisely, according to His Will. 7
  8. 8. 15 Wherefore when Saul saw that he behavedhimself very wisely, he was afraid (even more afraid)of him. 16 But all Israel and Judah loved David,because he went out and came in before them. David was the one leading his 1000 men to victories in battle. The armies and the people loved him. 8
  9. 9. 17 And Saul said to David, Behold my elderdaughter Merab, her will I give thee to wife: onlybe thou valiant for me, and fight the Lords battles.For Saul said, Let not mine hand be upon him, butlet the hand of the Philistines be upon him.Saul had promised to give his daughter to the man who killed Goliath, but he reneged on his promise. David still doesnt have a wife. 9
  10. 10. Now Saul says that to marry his older daughter,David will have to continue to fight the Philistines.17bFor Saul said, Let not mine hand be upon him, but let the hand of the Philistines be upon him. Saul had tried to kill David twice, and failed both times. Maybe he will be killed fighting Sauls battles. 10
  11. 11. 18 And David said unto Saul, Who am I? and whatis my life, or my fathers family in Israel, that Ishould be son-in-law to the king? David had the right to demand one of Sauls daughters for his wife. But David never demanded his rights.We could all spend more time giving thanks forour blessings, and less time demanding rights. 11
  12. 12. 19 But it came to pass at the time when MerabSauls daughter should have been given to David,that she was given unto Adriel the Meholathite towife.John 8 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and thelusts of your father ye will do. He was a murdererfrom the beginning, and abode not in the Truth,because there is no truth in him. When he speaketha lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and thefather of it. 12
  13. 13. 20 And Michal Sauls daughter loved David: andthey told Saul, and the thing pleased him. 21 AndSaul said, I will give him her, that she may be asnare to him, and that the hand of the Philistinesmay be against him. Wherefore Saul said to David,Thou shalt this day be my son-in-law in the one ofthe twain. At this time Michal loved David, but she was her daddys daughter. That love would turn to hatred. 13
  14. 14. 22 And Saul commanded his servants, saying,Commune with David secretly, and say, Behold,the king hath delight in thee, and all his servantslove thee: now therefore be the kings son-in-law.23 And Sauls servants spake those words in the earsof David. And David said, Seemeth it to you a lightthing to be a kings son-in-law, seeing that I am apoor man, and lightly esteemed? David should be a rich man; that was Sauls promise to the man who killed Goliath. Another lie from the mouth of the king. 14
  15. 15. 24 And the servants of Saul told him, saying, Onthis manner spake David. 25 And Saul said, Thusshall ye say to David, The king desireth not anydowry, but an hundred foreskins of the Philistines,to be avenged of the kings enemies. But Saulthought to make David fall by the hand of thePhilistines. To collect 100 foreskins of the Philistines was no small feat. Saul was certain that David would die in the attempt. 15
  16. 16. 26 And when his servants told David these words, itpleased David well to be the kings son-in-law: andthe days were not expired.Saul had placed a time limit on David to collect the bridal price of 100 Philistine foreskins. Before that time was up, David went out. 16
  17. 17. 27 Wherefore David arose and went, he and hismen, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men;and David brought their foreskins, and they gavethem in full tale to the king, that he might be thekings son-in-law. And Saul gave him Michal hisdaughter to wife. David brought double the bridal price. This time Saul kept his word. 17
  18. 18. 28 And Saul saw and knew that the Lord was withDavid, and that Michal Sauls daughter loved him.29 And Saul was yet the more afraid of David; andSaul became Davids enemy continually. 30 Thenthe princes of the Philistines went forth: and itcame to pass, after they went forth, that Davidbehaved himself more wisely than all the servantsof Saul; so that his name was much set by. 18
  19. 19. We must see and understand how negative emotions, such as envy, anger and fear, open the door fordemons to come into our minds and cause trouble.We must renew our minds to think and feel as God would be pleased. 19
  20. 20. Ephesians 4 31-32 Let all bitterness, and wrath, andanger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put awayfrom you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one toanother, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, evenas God for Christs sake hath forgiven you. Anything less is not worthy of a son or daughter of the Most High God. 20
