‘David and his band of (unmerry) men’ (1 Samuel 22:1-23)

After taking flight from King Saul and being very much alone, in 1 Samuel 22:1-23, David soon found that some men came to him, some others greatly helped him and yet others died because of him. These ones who died were the priests of Nob who Saul had slaughtered for helping David whose actions had consequences far greater than he could imagine. Thankfully the Lord Jesus paid for all the sins of God’s people and even the consequences of those sins.
