In the Bible many bad things were going on and kings killed people for no reason. Since there were no laws or minimum laws to punish the leaders, many leaders go away with crimes. For instance, Saul killed Jonathan for eating honey. Saul was jealous of David. He was really crazy. God took away his blessing from Saul. He gave the blessing to David. As David succeeded more and more, Saul became weaker.
This angered Saul. Saul became depressed. God was sending a torturing spirit to Saul. Saul’s sons were killed in battle. The Philistines caught up to Saul and this made war on Israel. After Saul’s sons died in battle, this sent him further into depression and angry toward his citizens.
