1 Samuel 18:13 (King James Version)
Therefore Saul removed him from him, and made him his captain over a thousand; and he went out and came in before the people.
- 1 Samuel 18:17 1 Samuel 18:25 ; 8:12 22:7
- he went out
- 16 ; Numbers 27:16 Numbers 27:17 ; 2 Samuel 5:2 ; Psalms 121:8
- Saul was sensible that the Lord was departed from him; while he perceived, with evident sorrow of heart, that the Lord had given David peculiar wisdom, and that he was with him to prosper all his undertakings. This increased the disquietude of his malevolent mind, and his dread of David as a prevailing rival: he therefore removed him from his presence. This impolitic step, however, served the more to ingratiate David with the people, by affording him the opportunity of leading them forth to victory over their enemies.
