1 Samuel

Details, Please (Part 2)

Samuel subdues the nation’s fearsome enemy, the Philistines.  As Samuel ages, Israel’s tribal leaders reject his sinful sons and ask for a king.  Samuel warns that a king will tax the people and force them into service, but they insist.  God tells Samuel to anoint the notably tall and handsome Saul as Israel’s first ruler.
