David grows up and becomes a good shepherd but still remains humble, sensitive and loving. Always accompanied by his harp, David composes beautiful Psalms and prayers to God. King Saul on the other hand, disobeys Gods laws as well as God himself. Speaking through his prophet Samuel, God tells Saul that he will replace him with someone worthy, someone who will follow what is in his heart.

He also keeps several lovers but his preferred wife is Bathsheba with whom he has a second son, after losing their first son, fruit of their forbidden love.
