Saul


Quick Reference

(in the Bible) the first king of Israel (11th century bc); chosen as king and anointed by the prophet Samuel. In later life Saul lost God's favour; he became violently jealous of his former favourite David, who was to succeed him as God's chosen king after the death of Saul and his son Jonathan in battle against the Philistines.
