{1 Samuel 18:13} Therefore Saul 7586 removed 5493 z8686 him from x4480 x5973 him, and made 7760 z8799 him his captain 8269 over a thousand; 505 and he went out 3318 z8799 and came in 935 z8799 before 6440 the people. 5971
"And Saul said to David, Behold my elder daughter Merab, her will I give thee to wife: only be thou valiant for me, and fight the LORD'S battles. For Saul said, Let not mine hand be upon him, but let the hand of the Philistines be upon him." {1Sm 18:17} + "And Saul said, Thus shall ye say to David, The king desireth not any dowry, but an hundred foreskins of the Philistines, to be avenged of the king's enemies. But Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines." {1Sm 18:25} + "And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and [will set them] to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots." {1Sm 8:12} + "Then Saul said unto his servants that stood about him, Hear now, ye Benjamites; will the son of Jesse give every one of you fields and vineyards, [and] make you all captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds;" {1Sm 22:7}
he went out:
"But all Israel and Judah loved David, because he went out and came in before them." {1Sm 18:16} + "Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation, ... Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd." {Num 27:16-17} + "Also in time past, when Saul was king over us, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the LORD said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be a captain over Israel." {2Sm 5:2} + "The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore." {Psa 121:8}; Saul was sensible that the Lord was departed from him; while he perceived, with evident sorrow of heart, that the Lord had given David peculiar wisdom, and that he was with him to prosper all his undertakings. This increased the disquietude of his malevolent mind, and his dread of David as a prevailing rival. He therefore removed him from his presence. This impolitic step, however, served the more to ingratiate David with the people, by affording him the opportunity of leading them forth to victory over their enemies. - Cross Reference Bible Search
