Sent Darkness

Envy

Introduction

Envy can root ominous darkness.

Scripture

Saul Envies David ( 1st Samuel 18:5-11 )

Link

  1. 5 So David marched out and prospered in everything Saul sent him to do, and Saul set him over the men of war. And this was pleasing in the sight of all the people, and of Saul’s officers as well.
  2. 6 As the troops were returning home after David had killed the Philistine, the women came out of all the cities of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs, and with tambourines and other instruments.
  3. 7 And as the women danced, they sang out:“ Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens of thousands.”
  4. 8 And Saul was furious and resented this song. “They have ascribed tens of thousands to David,” he said, “but only thousands to me. What more can he have but the kingdom?”
  5. 9 And from that day forward Saul kept a jealous eye on David.
  6. 10 The next day a spirit of distress sent from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied inside the house while David played the harp as usual. Now Saul was holding a spear,
  7. 11 and he hurled it, thinking, “I will pin David to the wall.” But David eluded him twice.
