Saul was a Benjamite who had been anointed King over Israel out of God’s permissive will. Instead of concentrating on his own life and ministry, he turned his attention at pursuing David, the young man after God’s own heart. After several attempts to kill David for no wrong done, Saul realized the quality of David’s life and devotion to his God and the king.
David had many opportunities to have killed King Saul, but he did not. Saul finally realized that he was in a wrong pursuit.
