1 Samuel 18:9
So Saul watched David jealously from that day forward.
The wicked one lies in wait for the righteous
and seeks to kill him;
For the ruthless one will vanish,
the scorner will disappear,
and all those who lie in wait with evil intent
will be killed—
For I have heard the gossip of many people,
“Terror is on every side!
Report him; let’s report him!”
Everyone I trusted watches for my fall.
“Perhaps he will be deceived
so that we might prevail against him
and take our vengeance on him.”
In order to accuse Him, they were watching Him closely to see whether He would heal him on the Sabbath.
One Sabbath, when He went to eat at the house of one of the leading Pharisees, they were watching Him closely.
They watched closely and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, so they could catch Him in what He said, to hand Him over to the governor’s rule and authority.
