Pr 5, Ps 22, 1 Sam 22

You get two posts today. I read and took notes yesterday, but never got around to posting them because of church and Easter.

Pr 5

:18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.

Ps 22

:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art Thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

Ever feel as though God is far away? You moved not Him.

:11 Be not far from me: for trouble is near: for there is none to help.

God is always there to help. Why do we usually try to do things on our own and then when that doesn't work out we call for God to fix the mess we have made? Why don't we call for His help first? Then things would go well from the beginning.

1 Sam 22

:1-2 David's family and anyone unhappy with Saul join David.

:3 David asked the king of Moab to keep his parents while he worked things out.

He honored his parents.

:4-8 Saul hears David was found. He is upset that his servants didn't tell him about Jonathan helping David.

:9-13 Doeg tells him about David going to the priests and they helped him.
Saul calls the priests who helped to him.

:14-17 the priest defends David and Saul orders the priest and his family killed. None of his servants will kill them.

:18-20 Doeg kills the priest and family. One escapes and fled to tell David what happened.

:21-23 David takes the responsibility for what happened to the priest and his family. He tells him to stay with him and he will protect him.
