Hi mishael ,i have to be honest ive never found the books of samuel ,kings and chronicles tedious ,they exhibit every facet of human nature ,at its worst and its best and we get to see Gods work through a very long lense as He puts all the pieces together to bring us to Jesus ,i think sometimes we have to study it very closely to dig up the gems but they are there ,we are told that sauls daughter who married david had no children to him because she mocked his dancing ,at the end of his reign david very subtily made sure saul had no male heirs to challenge solomon ,if david had had children with sauls daughter how would that have panned out ? It doesnt bear thinking about ,oh im wrong ! It does !

Eric,

Good for you, reading carefully and asking questions.

Sometimes a great number of people pay dearly for the sin of one or a few. Look what happened when Achan sinned at Jericho and several thousand died at Ai because of Achan.

Keep in mind, this time is under the Old Covenant and we are under the New Covenant. Most of the Old Testament was written TO the people of Israel. However it was written FOR us.

"Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."1Co 10:11

Yes, the history of Israel is a cycle repeated many times over:

Israel serves The LORD,

Israel falls into sin and idolatry,

Israel is enslaved,

Israel cries out to The LORD,

God raises up a deliverer,

Israel is delivered.

Look for it as you read.
