LESSON FOR MAY 16
DAVID SPARES SAUL.
LESSON TEXT-I Samuel 26:5-16.
GOLDEN TEXT-Love your enemies, do
good to them that hato you.-Luke 6:27.
Professor Beecher gives 1065 B. C.
as the date of this lesson and the
death of Samuel. Saul had been on
the throne 37 years and David was
twenty-seven years of age. There are
ten famous episodes between the les
son of last week and that of today.
(1) David and the shew-bread; (2)
Goliath's sword; (3) David feigns
madness (ch. 21); (4) The cave of
Adullam; (5) His care of his par
ents; (6) The killing of the priests
(ch. 22); (7) Wandering in the wil
derness (cl. 23); (8) The cutting of
Saul's robe (ch. 24); (9) Nabal's churl
ishness, and (10) Abigail's kindness
(ch. 25). It might be well to have
one scholar give a summary of each of
I. David and Ablshal, vv. 6-7.
Once before, the Ziphites had- In
formed Saul as to David's whereabouts
(23:19). Learning that Saul evident
ly Intended to follow him into the wil
derness (v. 4), David sent spies to
learn the exact location of Saul and
the 3,000 men under command of Ab
ner. Abner was a cousin of Saul, a
brave man with a remarkable history.
Unwittingly they had placed them
selves In David's power, and that for
a second time (24:3-8). Like the
camp of the Midianites which Gideon
visited., Saul and his men were scat
tered about sleeping "within the place
of the wagons" (v. 5 R. V.), with Saul
In the center, the spear marking his
resting place and the bolster beneath
his head. Doubtless Saul trusted Ab
ner's protection, but no arm of flesh
can save or protect a sinful man. From
a neighboring rock David and his
friends could distinguish the spear
and the outlines of the camp. David's
challenge was directed to both of his
companions. Ahimelech, the Hittite,
declined the summons, whereas Abi
shal, David's nephew who had already
proved himself in the affair at the
well (11 Samuel 23:13-16) and later be
came a leading figure in David's king
dom, accepted the challenge.
11. David and Saul, vv. 8-12.-Abishal
was quite right that - God had deliv
ered Saul into David's hand (v. 8), but
he was wrong in his conclusion as to
what that meant. God delivered Saul
that he might, if possible, save him.
It was a challenge that tested David's
magnanimity, his sense of honor and
also an event wherein he could appeal
to Saul's honor. Abishal's anger is
evident from his words, "I will not
smite him the second time." There
was ample provocation, but David rec
ognized in this experience the hand
of God, nor would he profit by an
other's hand upraised "against the
Lord's anointed" (v. 9). A conscience
less keen could have found an excuse
for allowing another to strike a blow
to his own profit. Saul was rejected
of Jehovah, yet David preferred to
let Jehovah execute his own decrees
(ch. 24:15 cf. Ps. 105:15).
Ill. David and Abner, vv. 13-16.
Returning to his vantage point,
doubtless the brow of a hill on the
opposite side of the valley, a point
of safety, David awakened the sleep
ing camp. Abner replied, "Who art
thou?" This cry sounds strangely like
the present-day replies to the chal
lenge of our David when a sleeping
camp of sin is aroused. This call
came at night. When our King shall
return his visit will be unexpected and
at night (I Thess. 5:2-4; Rev. 16:15).
It would seem like a humiliation for
this proud, haughty general, Abner, to
be taunted by Davidt (v. 15). As chief
officer he was responsible for the
king's safety and his life. David
therefore might wvell reproach and
chide him, for his lack of fidelity was
worthy of death. When Saul was
thoroughly awake to the fact of
David's visit to his camp and the fact
that his life had been spared, he was
moved to another one of his moments
of repentance (vv. 17-21).
lV. The Result, vv. 17-25.-David's
address to Saul, is a remarkable one.
He first appeals to reason (v. 18) and
desires to know what, if any, fault
he has committed. He next challenges
the motives which impelled Saul. Was
It God wvho sent him on this journey
or was it the evil counsel of men
(v. 19)? If this latter then let God
deal with them according to their
just deserts. And, finally, David uses
the two similes of a flea and p par
tridge as evidence of his humility, his
inoffensiveness, his harmlessness
Every sinner who fights against God
and against his anointed ones "playn
the fool" and will sooner or later, like
Saul, awaken to the fact that he has
David did not undertake his own de
liverance and "the Lord delivered him
out of all his troubles" (v. 24; Ps. 18).
David's last message to Saul as lie
bade them to send for his spear was
a declaration of Innocence and a
prayer that God would give him safety
even as Saul's life had been spared.
Saul's final word was a blessing and
a prophecy of David's ultimate tri

On April 22, 1915, the death
angel came to our home and
took from us our precious boy,
who was only eighteen years
ad. He was a good boy and
loved by all who knew him.
How sad is the thought that he
is gone, although we know he
is free from care, while we In
Zrief are marching on.
Sweet Doyle, how we miss
youl We miss you in our Sun
day school, we miss you in our
liome. It seems that we can
not wait to see his smiling face.
His precious body was laid to
rest the day following his death
in the Mile Creek cemetery.
All that we can do is to pray for
Zrace and higher power that we
may meet in the sweet bye and
His smiling face we see no more,
The voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home
That never can be filled.
