Jonathan Brokers Peace:
Jonathan, having warned David, protests his friend's innocence to the king. As proof of David's loyalty, the prince recounts the many feats of arms his friend has undertaken in Saul's name. Saul is dissuaded from killing David and once again receives him at court. (1 Samuel 19:37)

The War Resumes:
Again, the Israelites engage the Philistines. David and his company slaughter a great number of the enemy and chase them from the battlefield. (1 Samuel 19:8)

Saul's Rage:
Saul is again afflicted by an evil spirit sent by the Lord. The jealous king takes aim at his son-in-law with a spear, but David neatly steps aside and out of harm's way. (1 Samuel 19: 910)

A Second Assassination Attempt:
Saul directs his soldiers to surround David's home and to kill him in the morning. (1 Samuel 19:11)
