1Samuel 21
Amplified Bible
21THEN DAVID went to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest; and Ahimelech was afraid at meeting David, and said to him, Why are you alone and no man with you?H935H1732H5011H288H3548H288H2729H7125H1732H559H376 2David said to Ahimelech the priest, The king has charged me with a matter and has told me, Let no man know anything of the mission on which I send you and with what I have charged you. I have appointed the young men to a certain place.H1732H559H288H3548H4428H6680H1697H559H376H3045H3972H1697H7971H6680H3045H5288H6423H492H4725 3Now what do you have on hand? Give me five loaves of bread, or whatever you may have.H3426H3027H5414H2568H3899H3027H4672 4And the priest answered David, There is no common bread on hand, but there is hallowed bread--if the young men have kept themselves at least from women.H3548H6030H1732H559H2455H3899H3027H3426H6944H3899H5288H8104H389H802 5And David told the priest, Truly women have been kept from us in these three days since I came out, and the food bags {and} utensils of the young men are clean, and although the bread will be used in a secular way, it will be set apart in the clean bags.H1732H6030H3548H559H518H802H6113H8032H8543H3318H3627H5288H6944H1870H2455H6942H3117H3627 6So the priest gave him holy bread, for there was no bread there but the showbread which was taken from before the Lord to put hot bread in its place the day when it was taken away.H3548H5414H6944H3899H3899H6440H5493H6440H3068H7760H2527H3899H3117H3947 7Now a certain man of Saul's servants was there that day, detained before the Lord; his name was Doeg the Edomite, the chief of Saul's herdsmen.H376H5650H7586H3117H6113H6440H3068H8034H1673H130H47H7462H7586 8David said to Ahimelech, Do you have at hand a sword or spear? The king's business required haste, and I brought neither my sword nor my weapons with me.H1732H559H288H3426H371H3027H2595H2719H3947H2719H3627H3027H4428H1697H1961H5169 9The priest said, The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you slew in the Valley of Elah, see, it is here wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod; if you will take that, do so, for there is no other here. And David said, There is none like that; give it to me.H3548H559H2719H1555H6430H5221H6010H425H3874H8071H310H646H3947H3947H312H2108H2088H1732H559H5414 10David arose and fled that day from Saul and went to Achish king of Gath.H1732H6965H1272H3117H6440H7586H935H397H4428H1661 11The servants of Achish said to him, Is not this David, the king of the land? Did they not sing one to another of him in their dances: Saul has slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands?H5650H397H559H1732H4428H776H6030H2088H4246H559H7586H5221H505H1732H7233 12David took these words to heart and was much afraid of Achish king of Gath.H1732H7760H1697H3824H3966H3372H6440H397H4428H1661 13And he changed his behavior before them, and pretended to be insane in their [Philistine] hands, and scribbled on the gate doors, and drooled on his beard.H8138H2940H5869H1984H3027H8427H1817H8179H7388H3381H2206 14Then said Achish to his servants, You see the man is mad. Why then have you brought him to me?H559H397H5650H7200H376H7696H935 15Have I need of madmen, that you bring this fellow to play the madman in my presence? Shall this fellow come into my house?H2638H7696H935H7696H935H1004
