1 Samuel 29* David objected to by the Philistines. (1-5) He is dismissed byAchish. (6-11)1-5 David waited with a secret hope that the Lord would helphim out of his difficulty. But he seems to have been influencedtoo much by the fear of man, in consenting to attend Achish. Itis hard to come near to the brink of sin, and not to fall in.God inclined the princes of the Philistines to oppose David'sbeing employed in the battle. Thus their dislike befriended him,when no friend could do him such a kindness. 6-11 David scarcely ever had a greater deliverance than whendismissed from such insnaring service. God's people shouldalways behave themselves so, as, if possible, to get the goodword of all they have dealings with: and it is due to those whohave acted well, to speak well of them.
