INTRODUCTION. Because Saul disobeyed God in his expedition against the
Amalekites by sparing Agag, the king, and the best of the animals, the Lord rejected
him as king over Israel. Saul and Samuel each went to their own homes after the
battle, and Samuel went to see Saul no more in his lifetime.
The Lord told Samuel to mourn no longer for Saul but to go on a secret mission to
Bethlehem. There He instructed Samuel to anoint David, the youngest son of Jesse
of the tribe of Judah, as the next king of Israel. Although God "rent" the kingdom
from Saul, David did not actually become king until after Saul's death.
