David fled away from Saul with his men who tried to kill him and Saul pursued after him with his men. David eventually reached a cave and went inside with his small group of men, which ironically Saul went inside of to relieve himself. While Saul was busy doing his thing, David snuck up on him because of the reasoning of his men and cut off a piece of Saul’s cloak to show Saul that David had a chance to kill Saul while Saul was busy but did not. When Saul left the cave, David came out of the cave to show him the piece of Saul’s cloak and told him what had happened. This led to Saul for the moment giving up on his ambition to kill David and blessed David as the new king.
