The Life of David
David and Saul's Jealousy
I Samuel 18:6-30

But, it wasn't long before Saul became extremely jealous of David.

The Concise Oxford English Dictionary defines jealousy as being "envious of someone else's possessions, achievements, or advantages."

I. Saul's Jealousy (I Samuel 18:6-11)
Saul was envious of David’s achievements as expressed by the women who came out of all the cities of Israel, singing and dancing, and lauding David’s achievements over Saul's.

II. David’s Ascendancy (I Samuel 18:12-16)
There are six references in this chapter to love, with David as the object of that love.

III. Saul's Schemes (I Samuel 18:17-27)
Saul thought that if the Philistines killed David, his hands would be clean of David's blood.

But Saul did not reckon that the Lord was with David.

IV. David's Success (I Samuel 18:28-30)
We should see that David was successful because the Lord was with him.
