And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God. 1 Samuel 30:6 KJV
This was after David and the Israelites had suffered an attack while fighting at Ziklag.

David was very stressed out and upset because his people wanted to kill him, but, he didn't just have a pity party, David encouraged himself in the Lord.Subscribe to Read!
