King Saul

Let's keep learning about the kings from the books of Samuel, Kings and Chronicles.
We already learned about the prophet Samuel.

Next up is King Saul.

Saul was a very handsome man, and led God's people to win battles with other people.

He later had problems because he was impatient.
When he didn't listen to some instructions God gave him through Samuel, God was angry.

Saul was also jealous of David, because people were talking about how great a warrior he was.
So he planned to kill David, but Saul's son Jonathan was David's best friend and he saved him.

Saul was eventually killed in a battle.
