DAVID: (Study 14): David Hunted Down For Elimination

I Samuel 23:19-29

David had hidden in Judah away from Saul. It took the Ziphites to leak this fact to Saul, far away in Gibeah of Saul in Benjamin. Saul came and chased David down the valley of Maon and could have caught off with him.

Divine intervention separated the hand of Saul from David at that point. God caused the philistines to distract his attention away for David to escape.


The Ziphites of Judah leak the information about David to Saul. Is this not a house divided against itself?

Now Saul sent back the Ziphites against David, Judah against Judah for gain. Can we relate this act to the situation of contemporary Christendom? 

I Samuel 23:27 ‘…But there came a messenger unto Saul, saying, Haste thee, and come; for the Philistines have invaded the land…..’ a distraction to Saul and a way of escape to David. Can we discuss the wondrous ways of God of letting loose of the captives?
