The Case of the Missing Donkeys

In all fairness, donkeys do have a real knack for stealth:

Saul the son of Kish is tall and handsome, and there is none better than he in Israel (1 Samuel 9:2). But he is no replacement for Yahweh and proves to be a failure. The failures to come are hinted at when Saul fails to find his father’s donkeys (9:1-5). Israel has forsaken Yahweh for a man who cannot find his father’s donkeys. (James Hamilton, God’s Glory in Salvation through Judgment, p 164. Emphasis added)
