Samuel In The Temple

1 Samuel 4:1 - 1 Samuel 7:17

While Samuel kept serving God Eli was getting old.
Sons Hophni and Phineas were wicked and growing bold.

God warned that He would punish them, but punishment had not come.
Now Israel battled the Philistines and the Philistines had won.

Israel said let's get the Ark of God. Maybe then we won't die.
They did not say we trust in God, but let's give God a try.

So Eli's sons came with the ark against the Philistine host.
This made the Philistines fear and shake as if they'd seen a ghost.

This God delivered Israel from Egypt's mighty hand.
There is no God like Israel's God. This isn't what we planned.

But that was very long ago. We won last time we fought.
The Philistines said we'll win again. Don't fear this ark they brought.

The battle raged. Philistia won. They killed both Eli's boys.
They took the Ark. All Israel mourned. Eli asked, what is this noise?

Your sons are dead. The Ark is gone. The army is a wreck.
At 98 old Eli tipped his chair and broke his neck.

The Philistines took the Covenant Ark. They thought they'd conquered God.
In time instead of celebrate they each nurse their emerod.

For now they set the conquered Ark below their god Dagon.
Next day he'd fallen on his face before the morning dawn.

Some god this Dagon idol that can't stand any more.
They set him back but once again God knocked him to the floor.

But that's not all, God sent a plague. There was no place to hide.
Now the Philistines groaned in pain and many of them died.

For seven months Philistia groaned, now desperate in their grief.
We have to send this ark away. We must get some relief.

Don't send it empty. Send a gift. Pray God will heal our land.
Send gifts of gold so Israel's God will lighten up His hand.

Don't make the same mistake as Egypt did of old.
God drowned them all now make a cart. Return the Ark with gold.

The Philistines got two mother cows and took their calves away.
We'll see if Israel's mighty God won't let them go astray.

And sure enough those mother cows went lowing as they trod,
straight to the Levite's field, led by the hand of God.

The Philistines saw it and returned unto their homes again.
O're Israel they could battle. O're God, they could not win.


David Runs From Saul

1 Samuel 21:1 - 1 Samuel 22:23 ..
..
Then David came to Nob, to Ahimelek the priest. ..
When he saw David coming he was afraid to say the least. ..
..
David said I come in secret. On a mission for the king. ..
But we need some food and weapons. For we did not bring a thing. ..
..
As a priest I have some shewbread, but it's holy for the Lord. ..
We'll take it all said David, and do you have a sword? ..
..
There is one here. You know it well. ..
For by your hand the giant fell. ..
..
Goliath's sword. You made him fall. ..
David took the sword and ran from Saul. ..
..
To the land of Gath and Achish king, ..
but his servants said we've heard them sing. ..
..
Saul slew his thousands while at war, ..
but David slew ten thousands more. ..
..
What would Achish do, this king of Gath, ..
knowing David here had crossed his path? ..
..
This made David fear, so he played the fool. ..
Like a crazy man he dripped his drool. ..
..
The king said get this beast away from me. ..
Why would I want him? The man's crazy. ..
..
David fled to Adullam's cave and then, ..
he was joined by his brothers and four hundred men. ..
..
From there they went to Judah and that's when King Saul heard, ..
David's been discovered, and no one said a word. ..
..
Then Doeg spoke up, the Edomite. ..
I saw him with the priest. I knew something wasn't right. ..
..
Ahimelek the priest gave him bread and a sword, ..
and to help David out. He inquired of the Lord. ..
..
That made Saul mad so he called to him the priest. ..
Said why did you help David? Could have sent me word at least. ..
..
Why do you want to harm him what evil has he done? ..
David hasn't been a traitor he's as faithful as a son. ..
..
Now Saul was really angry. Said Ahimelek you'll die. ..
Told his servants, kill the priests, but each one said no not I. ..
..
Then Doeg, evil Doeg went up and drew his sword, ..
and he killed all the priests, who served before the Lord. ..
