David and the Holy Bread

21Then cameH935 DavidH1732 to NobH5011 to AhimelechH288 the priestH3548: and AhimelechH288 was afraidH2729 at the meetingH7125 of DavidH1732, and saidH559 unto him, Why art thou alone, and no manH376 with thee? 2And DavidH1732 saidH559 unto AhimelechH288 the priestH3548, The kingH4428 hath commandedH6680 me a businessH1697, and hath saidH559 unto me, Let no manH376 knowH3045 any thingH3972 of the businessH1697 whereabout I sendH7971 thee, and what I have commandedH6680 thee: and I have appointedH3045 my servantsH5288 to suchH6423 and suchH492 a placeH4725. 3Now therefore what isH3426 under thine handH3027? giveH5414 me fiveH2568 loaves of breadH3899 in mine handH3027, or what there is presentH4672. / present: Heb. found 4And the priestH3548 answeredH6030 DavidH1732, and saidH559, There is no commonH2455 breadH3899 under mine handH3027, but there isH3426 hallowedH6944 breadH3899; if the young menH5288 have keptH8104 themselves at leastH389 from womenH802. 5And DavidH1732 answeredH6030 the priestH3548, and saidH559 unto him, Of a truthH518 womenH802 have been keptH6113 from us about these threeH8032 daysH8543, since I came outH3318, and the vesselsH3627 of the young menH5288 are holyH6944, and the bread is in a mannerH1870 commonH2455, yea, though it were sanctifiedH6942 this dayH3117 in the vesselH3627. / yea…: or, especially when this day there is other sanctified in the vessel 6So the priestH3548 gaveH5414 him hallowedH6944 bread: for there was no breadH3899 there but the shewbreadH3899H6440, that was takenH5493 from beforeH6440 the LORDH3068, to putH7760 hotH2527 breadH3899 in the dayH3117 when it was taken awayH3947. 7Now a certain manH376 of the servantsH5650 of SaulH7586 was there that dayH3117, detainedH6113 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068; and his nameH8034 was DoegH1673, an EdomiteH130, the chiefestH47 of the herdmenH7462 that belonged to SaulH7586. 8And DavidH1732 saidH559 unto AhimelechH288, And is thereH3426 notH371 here under thine handH3027 spearH2595 or swordH2719? for I have neither broughtH3947 my swordH2719 nor my weaponsH3627 with meH3027, because the king'sH4428 businessH1697 requiredH1961 hasteH5169. 9And the priestH3548 saidH559, The swordH2719 of GoliathH1555 the PhilistineH6430, whom thou slewestH5221 in the valleyH6010 of ElahH425, behold, it is here wrappedH3874 in a clothH8071 behindH310 the ephodH646: if thou wilt takeH3947 that, takeH3947 it: for there is no otherH312 saveH2108 that hereH2088. And DavidH1732 saidH559, There is none like that; giveH5414 it me.

David Flees to Gath

10And DavidH1732 aroseH6965, and fledH1272 that dayH3117 for fearH6440 of SaulH7586, and wentH935 to AchishH397 the kingH4428 of GathH1661. 11And the servantsH5650 of AchishH397 saidH559 unto him, Is not this DavidH1732 the kingH4428 of the landH776? did they not singH6030 one to another of himH2088 in dancesH4246, sayingH559, SaulH7586 hath slainH5221 his thousandsH505, and DavidH1732 his ten thousandsH7233? 12And DavidH1732 laid upH7760 these wordsH1697 in his heartH3824, and was soreH3966 afraidH3372 ofH6440 AchishH397 the kingH4428 of GathH1661. 13And he changedH8138 his behaviourH2940 beforeH5869 them, and feigned himself madH1984 in their handsH3027, and scrabbledH8427 on the doorsH1817 of the gateH8179, and let his spittleH7388 fall downH3381 upon his beardH2206. / scrabbled: or, made marks 14Then saidH559 AchishH397 unto his servantsH5650, Lo, ye seeH7200 the manH376 is madH7696: wherefore then have ye broughtH935 him to me? / is mad: or, playeth the mad man 15Have I needH2638 of mad menH7696, that ye have broughtH935 this fellow to play the mad manH7696 in my presence? shall this fellow comeH935 into my houseH1004?
