Search The Scriptures —Study 11 — 1 Samuel 13

Study 11 From the Book of 1 Samuel is: 1 Samuel 13

  1. Consider the Israelites's great danger. See verses 5, 6, 19-22. In such a situation what ought they to have known to be the one indispensable and sure secret of survival and victory? See 12: 14, 15.
  2. What was wrong with Saul's professed desire to entreat the favour of the Lord, and with the action he took to further it? What warning do you take from the irreparable consequences following on one specific sinful act? Why does God expose men to such searching tests? See Dt. 8:2.
Notes
  1. Verse 1. Some numbers are lacking here. Thirty would in each case suitably fill the gap
  2. Verse 2. Many years must have elapsed. In 9:2 Saul is described as a 'young man'. Here his son Jonathan is old enough to command a fighting force.
