I Samuel 15:10-11 ” Then the Word of the Lord came to Samuel: ‘I am grieved that I have made Saul king, because he has turned away from Me and has not carried out My instructions.’ “

Saul was the first king of Israel, initially anointed to that position by the prophet Samuel. But Saul showed himself to be a man with no regard for God’s Word or Will. Rather, Saul desired to do things his way in a helter-skelter manner filled with jealously, unrepentance, and blatant disobedience to God. It finally got to the point that God basically said, “Enough is enough, I am taking My anointing from you.” (I Samuel 15:23) And so we find Samuel delivering God’s message of regret to a pompous Saul.
