Saul knew he was wrong, but kept chasing David.

1 Samuel 24 has an amazing verse: "20 And now, behold, I know that you shall surely be king, and that the kingdom of Israel shall be established in your hand." (ESV) This is Saul, then king, speaking to David. Saul was chasing David at this time, attempting to kill him. You might think that Saul, who obviously knew that he was in the wrong, would have stopped trying to chase David, but he didn't. In 1 Samuel 26, two chapters later, he is at it again.

How often have I done this?

I noticed this passage as a consequence of following the ESV on-line Bible reading for a day in May.

Thanks for reading.
