27 1 Samuel 24:6

28 So he said to his men, “Far be it from me because of the Lord that I should do this thing to my lord, the Lord’s Anointed, to stretch out my hand against him, since he is the Lord’s anointed.” 1 Samuel 24:6

29 David did not remain in the abusive situation, but he still willingly placed himself under Saul.

30 The Adventist Home, pg. 117 It was not the design of God that the husband should have control, as head of the house, when he himself does not submit to Christ. He must be under the rule of Christ that he may represent the relation of Christ to the church. If he is a coarse, rough, boisterous, egotistical, harsh, and overbearing man, let him never utter the word that the husband is the head of the wife, and that she must submit to him in everything; for he is not the Lord, he is not the husband in the true significance of the term. Husbands

He who loves his own wife loves himself; 29 for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, 30 because we are members of His body. 31 F OR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH. 32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.
