King Saul hated David because he thought that David would take away his throne and become king over the land of Israel. Saul searched for David and planned to kill him. Even so, every time David was near Saul, he was kind and showed mercy. This made Saul ashamed of his anger and hatred. He promised that he would not try to hurt David anymore.
"Then Saul said to David, 'May you be blessed, my son David! You shall both do great things and also still prevail.'" 1 Samuel 26:25a (NKJV)
