After God rejected the foolish and corrupt Saul, Israel's first king, He sent Samuel to Bethlehem to anoint David as the successor. The transition would be gradual however. David returned to caring for the sheep, but "The Spirit of The Lord came upon David from that day forward," and "The Spirit of The Lord departed from Saul."
(1 Samuel 16:13, 14)
