James Sumpter - April 24, 2024

1 Samuel 27 and 29 - An Enemy Within - Midweek Prayer Meeting

A Study of Samuel

In these final chapters, Saul finally gives up his pursuit, while David goes to live among the Philistines. As a result, we no longer have accounts which show David and Saul facing off, but the narrative alternates back and forth between events with David and events with Saul. Tonight’s lesson focuses on David’s decision to live among the Philistines. The Setting: The end of chapter 26 included Saul “repenting” of trying to kill David and promising not to harm him. David kept his conscience clean though tempted three times to take the life of his enemies. He defended himself with logic and spiritual reasoning and trusted the Lord to reward his “righteousness and faithfulness” (26:23). In the final verse, Saul returned to his place and David goes back to waiting for the kingdom. It is not clear how much time passes, but the Bible makes it clear that David remained under significant stress and threat for a long period of time, and chapter 27 reveals that it effected his heart and mind. He ends up living in Goliath’s hometown with some of the greatest enemies of God and His people.

Scripture References: 1 Samuel 26:23, 1 Samuel 29:1-11, 1 Samuel 27:1-12, 1 Peter 5:6-11, 1 Samuel 26:19-20
