These are my Answers to BSF Bible Study questions for People of the Promised Land Lesson


1 Samuel 21

Psalm 34

3. Ahimelech was alarmed and trembling at David’s arrival.

As a renowned warrior, David usually traveled with his men.

If the priest knew about Saul’s jealous anger toward David, perhaps he thought David was running away because he had killed Saul.

Luke 6:1-5

It’s interesting that some commentaries assume David lied when he said he had others with him. Jesus said, “he entered the house of God and took and ate the bread of the Presence, which is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those with him.” Luke 6:4 ESV (emphasis added)

I’m left with more questions than answers. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

4. David fled to Goliath’s hometown carrying Goliath’s sword.

 It didn’t make sense for the man who carried Goliath’s sword to go to Goliath’s hometown (1 Samuel 17:4). It didn’t make sense for the man who was sustained by the sacred bread of God to find refuge among the pagans. It didn’t make sense for the man after God’s own heart to change his address to Gath. (David Guzik)


When servants of the king of Gath recognized David, he panicked and pretended to go crazy.

Fear causes us to go into DIY self-preservation mode. So David lied and faked insanity. Although fear is a sort of insanity, we are never on our own.


  • Never stop praising God no matter what is going on.
  • Keep my eyes on him. Everything else is a distraction.
  • Seek and cry out to the Lord.
  • When I cry out to him, he hears and delivers me.
  • The angel of the Lord surrounds those who trust in and take refuge in HIM.
  • Fear the Lord. Do not fear the circumstances.
  • Avoid alienating myself from the Lord by lying. Lying means I trust myself more than I trust God.

Lord, whenever I forget, help me remember you are always with me. Help me to quickly turn to you, repent and fix my eyes on you.
