“Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.”
When David defeated Goliath and brought victory to the children of Israel, there was jubilation in the camp and the nation was thrown into great ecstasy. The women went about singing and dancing. They praised David who God used to deliver them from the intimidation of Goliath and his countrymen. This spectacular gallantry should make King Saul relieved, but he was instead displeased with reactions of the women and the entire nation. In bitter jealousy he was determined to kill David to eliminate every possibility of rivalry or threat to his throne.
