Leçon de non-violence pour David
Collection Lire la Bible - N° 146
240 pages - janv. 2007
In the First Book of Samuel, the three chapters 24 to 26 form a triptych, a treasure of literature. Sophie Ramond has examined how chapter 25 leads both the plot and the reader from 1 Samuel 24 to 1 Samuel 26 – from a chance encounter, in the course of which David is tempted to take the kingdom by force, to a planned encounter, in the course of which he gives a lesson in non-violence to Saul. It would appear to be Abigail’s intervention that converted David to militant non-violence. Though they seem on first inspection to be anecdotal, the texts under analysis here are theologically significant. A literary and narrative analysis demonstrates that their pertinence lies in uniting into one single story two aspects that cannot be coordinated speculatively: the divine plan and the possibility of human freedom.
