David at Adullam and Mizpah

First Samuel 22: 1-23

At this point in David’s life there was a turning of the tide; he was back in the territory of Y’hudah. So began one of the most interesting periods in the life of this exile. He was a king, anointed of YHVH, but he was hiding in a cave, waiting for God’s time until he should come to the throne. News of David’s return spread around the country very rapidly and soon there were gathered to him a strange assortment of people. Some were in distress, some in debt and some were disconnected. David became their leader, training and disciplining them until he had formed the nucleus of the greatest army the Israelites had ever known. They were destined to win the greatest victories in all their history.91
