I have some confusion reading the book of Samuel.
Using the premise that God knows the past and future. (Isaiah 46:10)
Here is confusion: God chose Saul to be king, later God says he is grieved that he made Saul king. How can God grieve a decision to make Saul king when He knew already Saul would be a bad choice for king?
Human example: Let’s say a person wanted to buy a home on a particular river and did not want it to be ever flooded. So he finds a lot available for sale on the river. Now this person knows that in the future the river will flood that lot every year for the next 10 years because he knows the future that it will flood.
How could that person grieve his choice to buy the lot knowing it will flood???
It just makes no sense to me.
