Saul Resents David

18And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.H3615H1696H7586H5315H3083H7194H5315H1732H3083H157H5315 2And Saul took him that day, and would let him go no more home to his father's house.H7586H3947H3117H5414H7725H1H1004 3Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.H3083H1732H3772H1285H160H5315 4And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David, and his garments, even to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle.H3083H6584H4598H5414H1732H4055H2719H7198H2289 5And David went out whithersoever Saul sent him, and behaved himself wisely: and Saul set him over the men of war, and he was accepted in the sight of all the people, and also in the sight of Saul's servants.H1732H3318H7586H7971H7919H7586H7760H582H4421H3190H5869H5971H5869H7586H5650 6And it came to pass as they came, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, that the women came out of all cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet king Saul, with tabrets, with joy, and with instruments of musick.H935H1732H7725H5221H6430H802H3318H5892H3478H7891H4246H7125H4428H7586H8596H8057H7991 7And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.H802H6030H7832H559H7586H5221H505H1732H7233 8And Saul was very wroth, and the saying displeased him; and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands: and what can he have more but the kingdom?H7586H3966H2734H1697H3415H5869H559H5414H1732H7233H5414H505H4410 9And Saul eyed David from that day and forward.H7586H5770H1732H3117H1973 10And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul's hand.H4283H7451H7307H430H6743H7586H5012H8432H1004H1732H5059H3027H3117H2595H7586H3027 11And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice.H7586H2904H2595H559H5221H1732H7023H1732H5437H6440H6471 12And Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with him, and was departed from Saul.H7586H3372H6440H1732H3068H5493H7586 13Therefore Saul removed him from him, and made him his captain over a thousand; and he went out and came in before the people.H7586H5493H7760H8269H505H3318H935H6440H5971 14And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the LORD was with him.H1732H7919H1870H3068 15Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely, he was afraid of him.H7586H7200H7919H3966H7919H1481H6440 16But all Israel and Judah loved David, because he went out and came in before them.H3478H3063H157H1732H3318H935H6440

David Marries Michal

17And Saul said to David, Behold my elder daughter Merab, her will I give thee to wife: only be thou valiant for me, and fight the LORD's battles. For Saul said, Let not mine hand be upon him, but let the hand of the Philistines be upon him.H7586H559H1732H1419H1323H4764H5414H802H1121H2428H3898H3068H4421H7586H559H3027H3027H6430 18And David said unto Saul, Who am I? and what is my life, or my father's family in Israel, that I should be son in law to the king?H1732H559H7586H2416H1H4940H3478H2860H4428 19But it came to pass at the time when Merab Saul's daughter should have been given to David, that she was given unto Adriel the Meholathite to wife.H6256H4764H7586H1323H5414H1732H5414H5741H4259H802 20And Michal Saul's daughter loved David: and they told Saul, and the thing pleased him.H4324H7586H1323H157H1732H5046H7586H1697H3474H5869 21And Saul said, I will give him her, that she may be a snare to him, and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him. Wherefore Saul said to David, Thou shalt this day be my son in law in the one of the twain.H7586H559H5414H4170H3027H6430H7586H559H1732H3117H2859H8147 22And Saul commanded his servants, saying, Commune with David secretly, and say, Behold, the king hath delight in thee, and all his servants love thee: now therefore be the king's son in law.H7586H6680H5650H1696H1732H3909H559H4428H2654H5650H157H4428H2859 23And Saul's servants spake those words in the ears of David. And David said, Seemeth it to you a light thing to be a king's son in law, seeing that I am a poor man, and lightly esteemed?H7586H5650H1696H1697H241H1732H1732H559H5869H7043H4428H2859H7326H376H7034 24And the servants of Saul told him, saying, On this manner spake David.H5650H7586H5046H559H1697H1696H1732 25And Saul said, Thus shall ye say to David, The king desireth not any dowry, but an hundred foreskins of the Philistines, to be avenged of the king's enemies. But Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines.H7586H559H559H1732H4428H2656H4119H3967H6190H6430H5358H4428H341H7586H2803H1732H5307H3027H6430 26And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king's son in law: and the days were not expired.H5650H5046H1732H1697H3474H1697H5869H1732H4428H2859H3117H4390 27Wherefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full tale to the king, that he might be the king's son in law. And Saul gave him Michal his daughter to wife.H1732H6965H3212H582H5221H6430H3967H376H1732H935H6190H4390H4428H4428H2859H7586H5414H4324H1323H802 28And Saul saw and knew that the LORD was with David, and that Michal Saul's daughter loved him.H7586H7200H3045H3068H1732H4324H7586H1323H157 29And Saul was yet the more afraid of David; and Saul became David's enemy continually.H7586H3254H3372H6440H1732H7586H1732H341H3117 30Then the princes of the Philistines went forth: and it came to pass, after they went forth, that David behaved himself more wisely than all the servants of Saul; so that his name was much set by.H8269H6430H3318H1767H3318H1732H7919H5650H7586H8034H3966H3365
