April 26, 1 Samuel 31:1-7

April 26, 1 Samuel 31:1-7

Saul and his sons are killed in battle just as God said would happen.  The death of a king, even a bad king is never a good thing.  There are some interesting points in this story to look at.  Although the text does not state who Saul's armor bearer was, Jewish traditions say it was Doeg.  This is the man who killed all of the priests and destroyed their city. And now he and Saul both die by that same sword, a certain justice in that.
The text also says that his sons died first, some believe that Saul knew his sons were dead before he was mortally wounded, that would be painful beyond measure knowing one's sons have gone on before you.
And all of this because Saul never trusted or obeyed God.
