Well, SAUL, was God’s choice as the first king of Israel.  Despite his tall stature, he was a diligent and humble person, though this humility leaned more toward cowardice.  However, ruling over Israel caused Saul to become a proud and stubborn man, with him disobeying Samuel’s messages from God on more than one occasion.

-Death!-

-He was taken into captivity.-

-His kingdom was given to someone else.-

-None of the above?-
