Notes from the Journey with David – 114

114. They buried the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan in the tomb of Saul’s father, Kish (2 Samuel 21:14).

The final phrase in this chapter says that God prospered the land again. Why? Because wrongs had been righted. Saul’s sin against the Gibeonites had now been atoned for and Saul’s own bones were now buried appropriately, instead of lying where his enemies had struck him down. In spite of the years that had passed, the impact of injustices remained, but once they were righted, God blessed the land again. If God will one day make all things right, can we think He will allow us to leave justice undone?
