I Samuel 13 records one of King Saul’s early tests in warfare, and it is a fascinating story.
Soon after Saul became king, he found himself facing the Philistine army. While Saul inexplicably sent most of his army home, the Philistines had 30,000 chariots, 6,000 horsemen, and innumerable soldiers.
With these ghastly odds, most of the remaining Israelite warriors fled into caves, holes, rocks, tombs, and wells. Those who did not flee stood trembling— a feeble force of just 600 men.
But there is an unsettling element of this lopsided contest: the Jewish warriors had no swords.
