Treasury of Scripture

And Saul saw and knew that the LORD was with David, and that Michal Saul's daughter loved him.

1 Samuel 24:20
And now, behold, I know well that thou shalt surely be king, and that the kingdom of Israel shall be established in thine hand.

1 Samuel 26:25
Then Saul said to David, Blessed be thou, my son David: thou shalt both do great things, and also shalt still prevail. So David went on his way, and Saul returned to his place.

Genesis 30:27
And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the LORD hath blessed me for thy sake.









(28) Saul saw . . . that the Lord was with David.--The success of the last savage enterprise, and the return of David with his ghastly spoils, filled the unhappy king with dismay. His daughter's love, too, for the rising soldier contributed to his trouble. Saul felt that all that David undertook prospered--that surely another and a higher Power was helping him. So his fear grew, we read in 1Samuel 18:29, and the paroxysms of jealous hatred deepened into a lifelong enmity.

Verses 28, 29. - The failure of his evil purpose, and the knowledge that Michal loved her husband, and would protect him against his intrigues, and that the marriage had brought rank and influence to David, made Saul hate him all the more bitterly, because he could not now openly put to death one so closely connected with him.
