The King's Lament
Scripture: 1 Samuel 30:1–31:13, 2 Samuel 1:1–1:27
Saul's reign came to a tragic end with his death on the mountains of Gilboa. When David heard the news he wrote a song of lament for Saul and his son Jonathan. The song gives us the proper perspective on the tragedies of life, the harsh realities of death, and our longing for healing from the pain.
