III. Michal the Daughter of Saul
She despised him in her heart.
1. She was kinda/sorta promised in marriage as a reward for killing Goliath.
(1 Samuel 17:25 / And the men of Israel said, "Have you seen this man who has come up? Surely he has come up to defy Israel. And the king will enrich the man who kills him with great riches and will give him his daughter and make his father's house free in Israel.")
2. She was second fiddle to Merab who was given to someone else.
(1 Samuel 18:19 / But at the time when Merab, Saul's daughter, should have been given to David, she was given to Adriel the Meholathite for a wife.)
3. She LOVED David.
(1 Samuel 18:20 / Now Saul's daughter Michal loved David. And they told Saul, and the thing pleased him.)
4. She was one of the reasons why Saul hated David.
(1 Samuel 18:28-29 / But when Saul saw and knew that the Lord was with David, and that Michal, Saul's daughter, loved him, Saul was even more afraid of David. So Saul was David’s enemy continually.)
5. Michal, David’s wife!
1 Samuel 19:11-17
