Today I finished 1 Sam and start 2 Sam tomorrow.
:9 The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
Wow just the thought of foolishness is sin.
:2 O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
This is my prayer.
1 Sam 30
:1-3 When David and his men returned home the place was burned down and their wives and children were taken. The Amalekites were responsible.
:4-6 The people were upset and wanted to stone David but he encouraged himself in the Lord.
:7-8 David sought the Lord about going after them and was told yes.
:9-11 David and 600 men went after them but 200 were weak and had to be left at Besor.
:12-15 They find an Amalekite who was left in a field cause he was ill. He tells David they burned down his town. David asks if he can find them and he says yes if David will swear to not turn him over to them or kill him.
:16-18 Only 400 escaped. David recovered his wives and all they had taken and more.
:19-25 Some of the 400 didn't want to share the spoils with the 200 who couldn't go but David said they would all share equally.
:26-31 He shared with the elders of Judah and others also.
1 Sam 31
:1-13 Just as Samuel had told Saul, he and his sons were killed by the Philistines.
