Hidden in a Cave

26 Feb
Landscape with David at the Cave of Adullam

Person, what do you mean you’re not going to tell me the story of those other sheep? You promised.

Well, I figured you meant you’d tell me that story next. I don’t want to wait.

Okay, I’ll listen. But this better be good.

My person says that after David escaped from King Saul, King Saul chased him around the countryside because he still wanted to kill him. For a time David hid in the cave of Adullam and his family and lots of men joined him there. The men that joined him did not have the best of character. They were the distressed, indebted, and the discontent. Person, I’m not sure what all those words mean.

Okay, I’ll listen.

My person says that David became the leader of all those men that have words with D in them. He even straightened some of them out.

How did he do that, person?

He what? He did? My person says that one of the things David did was to set a good example for the men. I set good examples. I could straighten out those men.

One of the times that King Saul was chasing David he went into a cave to relieve himself. This was not any cave. It happened to be the cave that David and his men were in. They were far back in it so King Saul didn’t see them.

While King Saul was doing his business, David crept up on him and…

He didn’t kill him? But any normal person would kill someone who was out to kill them. After all, it’s self defense.

Do you believe it? David didn’t kill King Saul. Instead he cut off the corner of his robe. Then he felt guilty for even doing that, because King Saul was the Lord’s anointed.

So David went out of the cave and told King Saul what he had done. He said he’d done nothing against King Saul and wouldn’t. David gave it to the Lord to avenge the wrongs King Saul had done to him.

Person, I think the Lord is more powerful than David. I wouldn’t want Him after me. So what happened to King Saul? Something really nasty?

What do you mean, that’s another story? I would think he’d get struck down right there.

He did? King Saul left? But he went after David again later?

I don’t get it. I think I’ll gather up my dog buddies and go after King Saul right now. See you later.

      Thanks Chancy and Mumsy. I’ll let you know if we find King Saul, but my person says we might have to look a long way from here -both in time and place. I’m not sure what she’s talking about.

      Bassa, do you think someone would buy Bible stories from a dog? My person says she might have to test them out on her Sunday school kids. I wonder if that means I get to go to Sunday school?

    Bongo, I think David cut a piece of the robe for you and your buddies, to make it easier to find the right direction where he went 🙂

      Angels Whisper, that makes perfect sense. Now we have King Saul’s scent.

    It’s a great story and terrible to holt it in the middle of the action. Bongo – things certainly did get worse for Saul!

      Thanks Bassetmomma. If I ever catch up to King Saul I’ll do my best to straighten him out.

    Hmmmm….I can’t wait for listening to more stories…..would love to know what’ll be happning to King Saul and to David! Although King Saul knew that David had done nothing against him and wouldn’t, he still wanted to get David? comes back again??? Oh…no….poor David…he doesn’t do anything wrong…I think that King Saul should leave David alone!

    • Bongo

      Kevin, it would be best if King Saul left David alone, but he was so jealous he wouldn’t do it.

    Hey Bongo,

    David sounds like a really nice person, shame they’re not all like that, imagine how much time they’d all have for fun and mischief if they just decided to be nice and leave each other alone?! 🙂

    Have a fun day

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

      Snoopy, I think a lot of people need to learn about fun and mischief from us dogs. Can you imagine what a better life they’d have?
