Study 21 From the Book of 1 Samuel is: 1 Samuel 27 and 28
Contrast David’s words in 27:1 with 17:37. Into what actions did depression drive him, and what price had he to pay for it? Are you ever overcome by circumstances in this way? Cf. 2 Ch. 19:2; Jas.4:4.
Looking back over the story of Saul, how did he come to his final sorry state? What warning ought we to take from his confession in 28:15? Cf. 1 Tim. 1:19.
Note. 28:7. Consulting a medium was expressly forbidden in the law of God. See Lv. 19:31, too, was resorting to something he himself had disowned. See 28:9.
