But the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him.1 Samuel 16:14
Dear Church and Friends,
Saul, having refused obedience receives an evil spirit from the Lord that terrifies him and his people. This compounds the growing madness of the tyrant and makes Gibeah a place no one wants to be. This passage sets up the coming conflict between David and Saul.
