David pursued (the Amalekites) Then they found an Egyptian, servant of an Amalekite (left to die). (after David cared for him and promised to protect him) he brought (David to the Amalekites)” 1 Samuel 30:11-16a
We must remember throughout our lives that in God's sight there are no little people and no little places. Francis A. Schaeffer (note that David did not know the Egyptian's value to them when he stopped to help him.)
(400 troops went with David to defeat the Amalekites and 200 were too weary and stayed behind) David said (upon return with spoils of war) “The share of the one who stays with the gear is the share of the one who fights--equal shares.” 1 Samuel 30:24

(Saul’s army) had fled and Saul and his sons were dead (in battle against the Philistines), .then the Philistines came and lived in (the cities) . and sent . good news to the house of their idols and to the people. 1 Samuel 31:1-9. for when does sin ever occur in the community that he must not examine and blame himself for his own unfaithfulness in prayer and intercession, his lack of brotherly service, of fraternal reproof and encouragement - indeed, for his own personal sin and spiritual laxity, by which he has done injury to himself, the fellowship, and the brethren? Dietrich Bonhoeffer Feast of Bartholomew the Apostle
