[32] In explanation of the name, exegetes such as Tha'labi hold that at this time, the future King of Israel was to be recognised by his height; Samuel set up a measure, but no one in Israel reached its height except Tālūt (Saul). Saul offers to accept a bride price of 100 Philistine foreskins, intending that David die in the attempt. David had left Nob by this point and had amassed some 300 disaffected men including some outlaws. In time, he came under the protection of David (2 Samuel 9:7–13).

They display Saul's armour in the temple of Ashtaroth (an Ascalonian temple of the Canaanites). The only male descendant of Saul to survive was Mephibosheth, Jonathan's lame son (2 Samuel 4:4), who was five years old at the time of his father's and grandfather's deaths.

In the battle, however, David slew Goliath and was made the subsequent King of Israel.[31]. When a week passed with no word of Samuel, and with the Israelites growing restless, Saul prepares for battle by offering sacrifices. [36] Martin Huisman sees the story of Saul as illustrative of the role of stress as a factor in depression. According to the Hebrew text of the Bible Saul reigned for two years, but scholars generally agree that the text is faulty and that a reign of twenty or twenty-two years is more probable.[1]. But at night the inhabitants of Jabesh-Gilead retrieve the bodies for cremation and burial (1 Samuel 31:8–13, 1 Chronicles 10:12). ), and taught the people how they should slay cattle (cf 1 Samuel 14:34).

Two opposing views of Saul are found in classical rabbinical literature. Doeg kills Ahimelech and eighty-five other priests and Saul orders the death of the entire population of Nob. [23] The account in 1 Chronicles summarises by stating that: There are several textual or narrative issues in the text, including the aforementioned conflicting accounts of Saul's rise to kingship and his death, as well as plays on words, that biblical scholars have discussed. She conjures the spirit of the prophet Samuel, who before his death had prophesied that he would lose the kingdom. Saul is a theatrical tragedy in five acts, written by Vittorio Alfieri in 1782, in which the eponymous protagonist simultaneously embodies the tragic heroism of both tyrant and victim. The Qur'anic account[31] differs from the Biblical account (if Saul is assumed to be Talut) in that in the Bible the sacred Ark was returned to Israel before Saul's accession, and the test by drinking water is made in the Hebrew Bible not by Saul but by Gideon. Talut is not considered a Nabi (Arabic: نَـبِي‎, Prophet), but a Divinely appointed King.[31]. During Saul’s campaign against the Philistines, Samuel said that he would arrive in seven days to perform the requisite rites. During the lifetime of Saul there was no idolatry in Israel. [1]Saul also had a concubine named Rizpah, daughter of Aiah, who bore him two sons, Armoni and Mephibosheth. He flees to Ziph pursued by Saul. In 2 Samuel, an Amalekite tells David he found Saul leaning on his spear after the battle and delivered the coup de grâce; David has the Amalekite put to death for having killed the Lord's anointed king. 4), (4) his innocence since he was considered free from sin like "a one-year-old child" (Yoma 22b), and (5) the merits of his ancestors, particularly his grandfather Abiel, who was also named Ner ("candle") because he lit the streets after dark so that people might go to the houses of study (tj, Sh… But the event showed it was a false policy; for the people were so faint and weak for want of food, that they were less able to follow and slay the Philistines than if they had stopped to take a moderate refreshment". [20][21][22] In 1 Samuel, and in a parallel account in 1 Chronicles 10, the defeated Israelites flee from the enemy and Saul asks his armour bearer to kill him, but the armour bearer refuses, and so Saul falls upon his own sword. The sons were Jonathan, Abinadab, Malchishua and Ish-bosheth.Their daughters were named Merab and Michal. Upon David's return from battle, the women praise him in song: implying that David is the greater warrior. B., Lev. God's change of mind in rejecting Saul as king has raised questions about God's "repentance", which would be inconsistent with God's immutability. He fell on his sword (committing suicide) to avoid capture in the battle against the Philistines at Mount Gilboa, during which three of his sons were also killed.

Having been anointed by Samuel, Saul is told of signs indicating that he has been divinely appointed. 16b, and Rashi ad loc.). While dining with Saul, Jonathan explains David's absence, saying he has been called away to his brothers. Several years after Saul’s victory against the Philistines at Michmash Pass, Samuel instructs Saul to make war on the Amalekites and to "utterly destroy" them including all their livestock[15] in fulfilment of a mandate set out Deuteronomy 25:19: Having forewarned the Kenites who were living among the Amalekites to leave, Saul goes to war and defeats the Amalekites. [28] Later biblical criticism has posited that the story of Saul's death was redacted from various sources, although this view in turn has been criticized because it does not explain why the contradiction was left in by the redactors. Other scholars, however, have identified Talut as Gideon[30] with the reasoning that the Qur'an references the same incident of the drinking from the river as that found in Judges 7:5–7 and other factors associated with Gideon. The fact that he was merciful even to his enemies, being indulgent to rebels themselves, and frequently waiving the homage due to him, was incredible as well as deceiving. If the old have sinned, why should the young suffer; and if men have been guilty, why should the cattle be destroyed? [25], The Bible's tone with regard to Saul changes over the course of the narrative, especially around the passage where David appears, midway through 1 Samuel. As Samuel turns to go, Saul seizes hold of his garments and tears off a piece; Samuel prophesies that the kingdom will likewise be torn from Saul.

And while Saul was merciful to his enemies, he was strict with his own people; when he found out that Ahimelech, a kohen, had assisted David with finding food, Saul, in retaliation, killed the rest of the 85 kohanim of the family of Ahimelech and the rest of his hometown, Nov (Yoma 22b; Num.

After the battle, Saul instructs his armies, by a rash oath, to fast. The First Book of Samuel gives three accounts of Saul's rise to the throne in three successive chapters: André Lemaire finds the third account probably the most reliable tradition.

Saul realises he could trap David and his men by laying the city to siege. The passage makes extensive play with the root-elements of Saul's name, and ends with the phrase hu sa'ul le-Yahweh, "he is dedicated to Yahweh." According to this view, Saul is only a weak branch (Gen. Rashi 25:3), owing his kingship not to his own merits, but rather to his grandfather, who had been accustomed to light the streets for those who went to the bet ha-midrash, and had received as his reward the promise that one of his grandsons should sit upon the throne (Lev. Saul sends more men, but they too join the prophets. Saul expended his own substance for the war, and although he knew that he and his sons would fall in battle, he nevertheless went forward, while David heeded the wish of his soldiers not to go to war in person (2 Samuel 21:17; Lev. Saul fears David's growing popularity and henceforth views him as a rival to the throne. In campo artistico si ricorda invece il ' Suicidio di Saul ', opera di Pieter Bruegel il Vecchio . Josephus writes that Saul's attempted suicide was stalled because he was not able to run the sword through himself, and that he therefore asked the Amalekite to finish it. Instead, David obtains 200 foreskins and is consequently married to Michal. But if his mercy toward a foe was a sin, it was his only one; and it was his misfortune that it was reckoned against him, while David, although he had committed much iniquity, was so favored that it was not remembered to his injury (Yoma 22b; M.

Vittorio Alfieri, drammaturgo italiano, nel 1782, leggendo le storie di Saul nella Bibbia, si appassionò a tale figura, traendo dalla vicenda una delle sue principali tragedie: il 'Saul'. According to Muslim exegetes, the name 'Tālūt' means 'Tall' (from the Arabic "tūl") and refers to the extraordinary stature of Saul, which would be consistent with the Biblical account. His anger at the Gibeonites (2 Samuel 21:2) was not personal hatred, but was induced by zeal for the welfare of Israel (Num. A Mosque in the area of Medina, possibly: This page was last edited on 28 January 2021, at 17:45. One is based on the reverse logic that punishment is a proof of guilt, and therefore seeks to rob Saul of any halo which might surround him; typically this view is similar to the republican source. Later on, David takes the bones of Saul and of his son Jonathan and buries them in Zela, in the tomb of his father (2 Samuel 21:12–14). After relieving the siege of Jabesh-Gilead, Saul conducts military campaigns against the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Aram Rehob and the kings of Zobah, the Philistines, and the Amalekites (1 Samuel 14:47). 11:78–79), (2) his unusual handsomeness (Ber. This view is similar to that of the monarchical source. According to the Qur'an, Talut was chosen by the Prophet Samuel (not mentioned by name explicitly, but rather as "a Prophet" of the Israelites) after being asked by the people of Israel for a King) to lead them into war. Samuel's name, however, can mean "name of God," (or "Heard of God" or "Told of God") and the etymology and multiple references to the root of the name seems to fit Saul instead. Saul (/sɔːl/; Hebrew: שָׁאוּל‎ – Šāʾūl, Greek: Σαούλ, meaning "asked for, prayed for"), according to the Hebrew Bible, was the first king of the United Kingdom of Israel (Israel and Judah). [5] David accordingly handed them Armoni, Mephibosheth, and five of Saul's grandsons (the sons of Merab and Adriel son of Barzelli)[6] to the Gibeonites, who killed them (2 Samuel 21:8–9). Rashi 1:10). Vittorio ALFIERI naskiĝis en Asti (Piemonto) la 16-an de januaro 1749. This play marks the high point of Italian tragedy and pre-romantic poetry. Before, Saul is presented in positive terms, but afterward his mode of ecstatic prophecy is suddenly described as fits of madness, his errors and disobedience to Samuel's instructions are stressed and he becomes a paranoiac. Saul was distinguished by the greatness of his knowledge and of his physique; it was a sign of his role as King that God brought back the Ark of the Covenant for Israel. [9] Later, Saul sends men to pursue David, but when they meet a group of ecstatic prophets playing music, they are overcome by the Spirit of God and join in giving prophetic words. Quest'ultima è ritenuta, assieme al Saul, il capolavoro assoluto di Alfieri, opera anticipatrice, come i miti greci a cui si rifà, di tematiche della psicoanalisi. Saul (Alfieri), a theatrical tragedy by Vittorio Alfieri; Saul, an oratorio by George Friedrich Handel Geography. Now Saul actively plots against David. Samuel tells him that God has fully rejected him, will no longer hear his prayers, has given the kingdom to David and that the next day he will lose both the battle and his life. Jonathan arranges a short-lived reconciliation between Saul and David and for a while David served Saul "as in times past" (1 Samuel 19:1–7) until "the distressing spirit from the Lord" re-appeared. [2], Saul's life and reign are described primarily in the Hebrew Bible. On the second occasion, Saul returns to Ziph with his men. [33] However, the story of Saul in 1 Samuel 14 has parallels to Qur'an 2:246-251, faithfully accounting for the sacred Ark and the fasting test (1 Samuel 14:18; 1 Samuel 14:24–48; Quran 2:246–251 (Translated by Yusuf Ali)). In some respects Saul was superior to David, e.g., in having only one concubine {Rizpah}, while David had many. On two occasions, Saul threw a spear at David as he played the harp for Saul. Finally, David had the bodies taken down and buried in the family grave at Zelah with the remains of Saul and their half-brother Jonathan. The insanity of Saul is skilfully managed; and the horrid joy of Orestes in killing Aegisthus rises finely and naturally to madness in finding that, at the same time, he had inadvertently slain his mother.
