Psalm 59 and 1 Samuel 19

One of the advantages of reading the Bible via an approach such as the one used in
Bruce’s Chronological Bible Project
is that you quickly see how things fit together.

Today, for example, the readings are 1 Samuel 18 and 19 plus Psalm 59.
The Psalm actually is inserted into the reading plan after verse 18 of 1 Sam 19.

Why, you ask?
Well, the intricacies of the situation facing David are complex as outlined in this commentary selection
1 Samuel 19 - David Flees from Saul?

He understands that they are after him, not due to anything that he has done, but rather out of Saul's jealousy. He is confident in God's ability to protect and defend him from harm and deal with his adversaries
He expresses his reliance on God in this matter..
