: [shortly before Saul's last stand at Mount Gilboa
] David is not among the enemy, Father. It's not your honor that's at stake. It's the lives of our men. Saul
: I will ride out against the Philistines. If I ride alone, so be it. Nathan
: [rallying the Israelite troops while preparing to offer a sacrifice
] Rouse yourselves in anger! Lay nations at our feet! Whet your flashing swords! Make your arrows drunk with blood! Saul
: [cutting in
] My Lord, *I* am your sacrifice. Nathan
: This day, you will surely die. Saul
: Then my prayer will be answered at last. Nathan
: The Lord scorns your prayers. He has utterly rejected you. Saul
: And Samuel, too. And Abraham and Isaac and Jacob! Even David will be forsaken at the end, for in death, we are all cut off from God's care. What purpose, then, in serving Him? He wrestles with man for the nighttime of his life, but at daybreak, He is gone.
: Who marches with the king and his sons?
: That soldier who laid his hands on the Ark - he was only trying to be helpful. Nathan
: It is not for us to question the ways of the Lord. King David
: I question nothing, yet the sun was hot that day, the man had been drinking wine, all were excited when the ark began to fall. Is it not possible that the man might have died naturally from other causes? Nathan
: All causes are from God!
: Nathan Nathan
: So, how's married life? Solomon
: Very pleasant. Very pleasant indeed. Solomon
: The pleasures of the body are not to be missed, Nathan. Nathan
: I have chosen to concentrate on God's love, my lord. Solomon
: Do you really think he meant you to deny yourself, Nathan? He made us this way did he not? Why would he not want us to taste the fruit? Nathan
: God put many things on earth we're not to taste, my lord. If it were not so, we would not have a free will... and he... would not be God... but simply the creator of blind animals.
