:17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth.
:18 Lest the Lord see it, and it displease Him, and He turn away His wrath from him.
When someone you are upset with stumbles or falls have you ever been glad? Or thought, finally they get what they deserve? If so, be careful. Remember we ALL deserve punishment for the things we have done but instead we received mercy and grace.
:1 In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
Help me to always put my trust in You Lord.
1 Sam 11
:6 And the Spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard those tidings, and his anger was kindled greatly.
In previous verses Nahash tells some Israelites that he will make peace with them only if they let him thrust out their right eyes. When Saul hears this is when the Spirit of God comes on him and he gets angry and takes action.
This was righteous anger cause it came from God.
:9 Saul sends word help is coming.
:12 After Saul helps the people want to kill whoever spoke against Saul at the beginning.
:13 Saul says no one is to be harmed.
