1 Samuel 27 and 28

  1. Contrast David’s words in 27:1 with 17:37.
    Into what action did depression drive him, and what price had he to pay for it?
    Are you ever overcome by circumstances in this way? Cf. 2 Chr. 19:2; Jas. 4:4.
  2. Looking back over the story of Saul, how did he final sorry state?
    What warning ought we to take from his confession in 28:15? Cf. 1 Tim. 1:19.

 Notes. 28:7. Consulting a medium was expressly for hidden in law of God. See Lev. 19:31. Saul, too, was resorting to something he himself had disowned. See 28:9.
