Saturday, July 22: “Wicked Reasoning”

1 Samuel 22: 9:“Then Doeg the Edomite, who was standing by the servants of Saul, said, ‘I saw the son of Jesse come to Nob, to Ahimelech the son of Ahitub.’”

King Saul had presented a very reasonable argument: I, the king, can do a lot more for you than one rogue boy in the wilderness (vv. 7, 8). Doeg the Edomite was so convinced by this reasoning that he was moved not only to rat out David and the priests, but to unspeakable acts of violence and cruelty (vv. 18, 19). Yet all he won for himself was a prime place in the biblical annals of just another mighty man who boasted in evil, then reaped only the ire of God Who broke him down, snatched him up, and uprooted him from the land of the living (Psalm 52).
