|Bible Question: In 1 Samuel 28:21-25 the medium insists on feeding Saul and Saul's servants agree with her. Why does she do this? Does the Bible ever tell what happened to her?|
Bible Answer: Greetings,
I can see two possible reasons. First, as a bribe or as a thank you for King Saul not ordering her death. Second, for the trip back. King Saul had travelled from Mt. Gilboa where his armies were camped to Endor where the woman was. That is about a 30-40 mile journey. In addition, there is no telling how long they had been there, or when they last ate. So, the witch offered, and his companions agreed, that taking the time to eat would be beneficial.
