Summary of Saul’s Kingship

Wherever he turned, he caused havoc.[a] 48 He fought bravely, defeated the Amalekites,(C) and delivered Israel from the hand of those who plundered them.

49 Saul’s sons(D) were Jonathan, Ishvi, and Malchishua. The names of his two daughters were: Merab,(E) his firstborn, and Michal,(F) the younger.
