David Becomes King

“David must surely have mixed emotions as he considers the future.  He is obviously relieved to be free of Saul’s constant threats, but the mantle of responsibility is now his.  (His kingship over all Israel is still some seven years away.  He must rule over Judah alone until civil conflict is resolved and he is accepted by all the people.

The account of these initial years begins with David seeking God’s guidance — one of the many traits which makes David such a special leader for God’s people.”

Read: 2 Samuel 2, 3, 1 Chronicles 3:1-4a, 2 Samuel 4, 5:1-5, 1 Chronicles 11:1-3, 1 Kings 2:11,
1 Chronicles 3:4b, 29:26-27, 1 Chronicles 12:23-40

“One of the most interesting incidents recorded during this period is an encounter in which Saul asks a witch to consult the spirit of Samuel for him.  Of course God has severely condemned witches as deceivers and pretenders, and the witch herself surely does not expect Samuel’s real spirit to appear.  When God intervenes to call Samuel from the dead, no one is more surprised and frightened than the witch.  Saul’s resort to the heathen practice of divination, along with his previous disobedience to God’s commands, may well contribute to his downfall and untimely death.”
