Saul Learns of David's Whereabouts:
A field hand arrives at court and informs the king that David hides in Ramah with Samuel. Saul immediately dispatches officers to arrest David. (1 Samuel 19:1920)

Saul's Officers Struck by the Spirit of the Lord:
Saul's officers arrive in Ramah. As they approach Samuel and David, the spirit of the Lord descends upon them in the form of a dove. David watches in amazement as his would-be captors begin to prophesy and wildly dance about. (1 Samuel 19:20)
