Read the Bible in a year by reading First Chronicles 19--21 today Some Advice Is Not Good By Don Ruhl On almost everything in life, especially when dealing with people, it is a good idea to get advice. However, that does not mean that the advice is always good. For example, King Nahash of Ammon was a friend of David's. When the king died, David sent messengers to comfort Hanun, the son of Nahash, who had become king in place of his father. However, listen to what the advisers of Hanun told him, And the princes of the people of Ammon said to Hanun, "Do you think that David really honors your father because he has sent comforters to you? Did his servants not come to you to search and to overthrow and to spy out the land?" (1Ch. 19:3 NKJV) Hanun accepted what the princes said and it led to war and the death of tens of thousands of soldiers, including from Syria, because the Ammonites had hired the Syrians. I sure would like to know what Hanun did to his advisers after what happened. Therefore, seek advice, but do not be gullible. Question from the text: How did Hanun humiliate David's servants?
