By Don Ruhl

Saul persecuted David enough that he finally fled Saul’s presence and went to Samuel, telling him all that Saul had done. How that must have grieved Samuel because he had anointed Saul as king of Israel. The Bible says,

So David fled and escaped, and went to Samuel at Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and stayed in Naioth (1 Samuel 19.18).

Two righteous men had fellowship with one another and that fellowship grew stronger because they shared an enemy. This highlights Saul’s foolishness that he would drive two of the best men in Israel away from him.
