(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. 18:12-30 For a long time David was kept in continual apprehension of falling by the hand of Saul, yet he persevered in meek and respectful behaviour towards his persecutor. How uncommon is such prudence and discretion, especially under insults and provocations! Let us inquire if we imitate this part of the exemplary character before us. Are we behaving wisely in all our ways? Is there no sinful omission, no rashness of spirit, nothing wrong in our conduct? Opposition and perverseness in others, will not excuse wrong tempers in us, but should increase our care, and attention to the duties of our station. Consider Him that endured contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be weary and faint in your minds, Heb 12:3. If David magnified the honour of being son-in-law to king Saul, how should we magnify the honour of being sons to the King of kings!
