    for a psychological study take that promise given to Saul and consider why he failed. To do that you have to study the last two or three chapters of Judges through the point where Samuel talks about God tearing the kingdom from Saul. You have to look at nuances in the text, especially those that relate to Saul “listening” to the people. The promise you quoted is about as close as the OT comes to a statement of the NT gospel. So what happened to Saul that kept him from fulfilling that promise.

      I don’t know Ron, hopefully someone smarter than me will chime in. All I do know is that Saul “forgot the Lord His God” as the people did, over and over again. (1 Samuel 12:9)
