Sure, if you want to put together some lists like that that’d be one way to find some kind of definitive statement about it. I think you’re expecting me to understand what you’re thinking, though, through your posts, which have a lot of religious lingo, phrases like crushing your heart etc which have completely different meanings in everyday language, and the overall sense that this is primarily a religious text. I’m guessing at what your meaning is, as it’s not clear from your posts. To my mind 1 Samuel is more of a political text, moving away from the idea of kings as divine through god as king to a king who isn’t divine but follows divine orders, a pretty major shift in thinking at the time. The whole Saul/David narrative plays some part in illustrating that, maybe providing an example of how ruthless a king who obeys god (or rather puts the survival of his particular tribe/community above all other considerations) should be, but also how righteous he should be in dealing with his own people, and how he should also exercise some fairness towards non-threatening neighbours - all of that and more. Saul gets pushed out of the picture because he doesn’t really want the role, he’s not committed and not very good at it. All the repentance stuff is relatively incidental, at least in terms of why the text was written.I don't feel like that's what I am describing or intending to say at all. One person's heart vs. another person's heart?
If this is your position, it seems like there cannnot be any way to "nail down" anything about Saul's so-called bum deal. The answer will always be maybe-so-maybe-not. At the very least a list should be able to be compiled of what Saul did. Then a list can be made about the things an individual thinks Saul should have done differently. Same with David, same with any character in any story.
I'm not Christian, so, I am virtually clueless of the context you seem to be applying to what I'm saying. This is the Hebrew bible. I personally think overlaying Christianity onto it is folly. Excluding showing their contrasts or perhaps a Christian polemic.
