Storyboard Text

  • Saul takes 3k of his men to seek David in the wilderness of En-gedi (24:3-4). David is in the cave with his men, then stealthily cuts off a piece of Saul's cloak, which he is remorseful about (24:4-8).
  • David appeals to Saul's better side, pleading on his knees as to why Saul would seek him out and kill him when he did nothing wrong, then asking him to leave him alone since he'll eventually become king anyway (24:9-13).
  • David swore, so Saul takes his men and goes home (24:23).
  • The Ziphites come to Saul at Gibeah, telling Saul that David is hiding in the wilderness of Ziph. So Saul camps at the hill of Hachilah, facing the wasteland where David is (26:1-3)
  • David takes Abishai with him to make sure Saul was camping with the intent to attack David, which he saw he was, as there were troops and weapons around him (26:4-9). But David tells Abishai not to kill Saul as he sleeps, instead take his water jug and spear (26:9-12).
  • David leaves Saul's camp and goes to a far away mountaintop, where he finds Abner, who is supposed to be protecting Saul. David call out Abner for not protecting Saul, the anointed King (26:13-16). But Saul overhears him, not far away after all, and feels remorseful for chasing David when he wasn't try to kill him (26:17-22). So David gives Saul back his spear and accepts his apology, which Saul replies with a blessing for David. Then David goes on his way and Saul returns to his place (26:22-25).
