slain the LORD’s priests
1 Samuel 22:21
22:21 slain the LORD’s priests. Saul continues to compound his sin, begun so innocuously by acting as a priest (I Samuel 13:9), by now murdering an entire city of priests (I Samuel 22:19). Abiathar was, however, destined to be the last priest in the line of Eli (I Kings 2:27).
