    mulberry trees. We had a mulberry tree in our front yard when I was a kid. There had green berries about the size of a dime. They were good for shooting in my slingshot. No good for eating but good ammo.

    What jumps out at me here, is how amazing God and his ways past finding out, no doubt he could have went before him head to the Philistine but made him fetch a compass to catch them from behinds and to wait for the sound on top of the trees, wow that is just intriguing how God chooses to accomplish things from being able to actually do it any which way He wants yet he considers us to all detail.

    about having many wives and concubines king David inherited from his great grand father Jacob, his grand father Judah who also had many wives and concubines "read Genesis" in detailed and understand where the trend came from. but all in all king David was a prayer warrior and intercessor before God - a man after God's heart-

    I use to wonder about concubines and the many wives then I thought about,Deuteronomy 12:15(KJV)Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh in all thy gates,whatsoever thy soul lusteth after,according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee:the unclean and the clean may eat thereof,as of the roebuck and as of the hart.maybe it was ok for whoever he blesses kind of thing.
