Quote to Consider:
George M. Ophoff: "The Lord brought Saul to a
terrible end on account of his rebellions and impenitence. His
destruction was sudden. He was cut off from God’s country—the land of
the spiritually living—in the midst of his days, in the prime of life.
His head was made a public gazing-stock there in the temple of Dagon.
His decapitated body was suspended between heaven and earth by its being
fastened to the walls of Bethshan, and finally it was burned. These
ignominies were signs of the Lord’s hot displeasure, of the anger of His
hatred of Saul. So they were regarded in that day and rightly so. And
they were given, were these signs, that all Israel might know that Saul
was wicked, and that David was righteous" (The Standard Bearer,
vol. 25, pp. 39-40).
