  • but he escaped to somethingthat he was trapped in.
  • 00:01:03.026 --> 00:01:06.329

  • 00:04:14.717 --> 00:04:15.652
  • Psalm 142:1, same verse.
  • 00:04:17.887 --> 00:04:19.322
  • Psalm 142:1, same verse.He's in the Cave of Adullam,
  • 00:04:19.322 --> 00:04:20.790
  • He's in the Cave of Adullam,that's where he was.
  • 00:04:20.790 --> 00:04:21.691

  • He says, "I looked to my right,and nobody was there."
  • 00:04:22.458 --> 00:04:23.192
  • and nobody was there."That's what he wrote.

  • And his brother's and father'shousehold heard about it,
  • 00:04:27.597 --> 00:04:30.366
  • So he was surrounded,
  • 00:04:33.703 --> 00:04:36.239
  • So he was surrounded,but there is a difference
  • 00:04:36.239 --> 00:04:38.508
  • but there is a differencebetween being surrounded
  • 00:04:38.508 --> 00:04:43.946
  • between being surroundedand feeling supported.
  • 00:04:43.946 --> 00:04:45.948
  • and feeling supported.And God sends David some people
  • 00:04:45.948 --> 00:04:47.283
  • And God sends David some peoplein a cave, and maybe he wrote
