King Saul tries to spear David
After an evil spirit from God came forcefully upon Saul.
King Saul tried to kill David in a fit of anger because of jealousy by throwing a spear.
King Saul was prophesying before he tried to kill David with a spear.
Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with David but had left Saul.
Saul's Jealousy of David
5 Whatever Saul sent him to do, David did it so successfully that Saul gave him a high rank in the army. This pleased all the people, and Saul's officers as well.
6 When the men were returning home after David had killed the Philistine, the women came out from all the towns of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs and with tambourines and lutes. 7 As they danced, they sang:
"Saul has slain his thousands,
and David his tens of thousands."
8 Saul was very angry; this refrain galled him. "They have credited David with tens of thousands," he thought, "but me with only thousands. What more can he get but the kingdom?" 9And from that time on Saul kept a jealous eye on David.
10 The next day an evil spirit from God came forcefully upon Saul. He was prophesying in his house, while David was playing the harp, as he usually did. Saul had a spear in his hand 11and he hurled it, saying to himself, "I'll pin David to the wall." But David eluded him twice.
12 Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with
David but had left Saul. 13 So he sent David away from him
and gave him command over a thousand men, and David led the troops in
their campaigns. 14 In everything he did he had great
success, because the LORD was with him. 15 When Saul saw
how successful he was, he was afraid of him. 16 But all
Israel and Judah loved David, because he led them in their campaigns.
1st Samuel 18:5-15
Saul had no heart towards God.
