Bible: 1 Samuel 26:21-25

26:21 Saul replied, “I have sinned. Come back, my son David. I won’t harm you, for you treated my life with value 1  this day. I have behaved foolishly and have made a very terrible mistake! 2  26:22 David replied, “Here is the king’s spear! Let one of your servants cross over and get it. 26:23 The Lord rewards each man for his integrity and loyalty. 3  Even though today the Lord delivered you into my hand, I was not willing to extend my hand against the Lord’s chosen one. 26:24 In the same way that I valued your life this day, 4  may the Lord value my life 5  and deliver me from all danger.” 26:25 Saul replied to David, “May you be rewarded, 6  my son David! You will without question be successful!” 7  So David went on his way, and Saul returned to his place.
