Read:  1 Samuel 22:6-23, Psalm 52, 1 Samuel 23:1-14, Psalm 63, 1 Samuel 23:15-25, Psalm 54,
1 Samuel 23:26-29, 1 Samuel 24, Psalm 57, 1 Samuel 25:1-8

The Daily Bible doesn’t give commentary on today’s reading.  But these past few days, reading about David and Saul — the animosity and jealousy Saul has for David, while David’s respect for Saul as king is astounding.  This, right here, entering the 1st and 2nd Samuel books is why I so enjoy reading through the chronological Bible.  It is such a unique and wonderful way to read about the rantings of Saul and the struggles of David, as David offers pleas and gratitude over these experiences to God through the Psalms.

Oh, to have David’s heart…to inquire of God over every decision, to be in anguish over what may be chasing or awaiting him and yet turn it all over and to trust God fully, then as God provides protection and leading, offering thanks and gratitude.

It is no wonder that David is “a man after God’s own heart.”

“I HAVE FOUND DAVID the son of Jesse, A MAN AFTER MY HEART, who will do all My will.”
Acts 13:22b

III. Laws of Special Crimes

“In the theocracy of Israel, there are many offenses punishable by death which do not fall within traditional crime categories, and offenses which fall within traditional crime categories which are not punishable by death.  There is no punishment by imprisonment at all.  Theft, for example, is punished by a form of fine and restitution.  (Therefore the special crimes category set forth below is arbitrarily based upon more traditional classifications of offenses.)

To insure respect for human life, the most basic moral principle of life is given.”
