David and the Holy Bread

21Then came David to Nob to Ahimelech the priest: and Ahimelech was afraid at the meeting of David, and said unto him, Why art thou alone, and no man with thee?H935H1732H5011H288H3548H288H2729H7125H1732H559H376 2And David said unto Ahimelech the priest, The king hath commanded me a business, and hath said unto me, Let no man know any thing of the business whereabout I send thee, and what I have commanded thee: and I have appointed my servants to such and such a place.H1732H559H288H3548H4428H6680H1697H559H376H3045H3972H1697H7971H6680H3045H5288H6423H492H4725 3Now therefore what is under thine hand? give me five loaves of bread in mine hand, or what there is present.H3426H3027H5414H2568H3899H3027H4672 4And the priest answered David, and said, There is no common bread under mine hand, but there is hallowed bread; if the young men have kept themselves at least from women.H3548H6030H1732H559H2455H3899H3027H3426H6944H3899H5288H8104H389H802 5And David answered the priest, and said unto him, Of a truth women have been kept from us about these three days, since I came out, and the vessels of the young men are holy, and the bread is in a manner common, yea, though it were sanctified this day in the vessel.H1732H6030H3548H559H518H802H6113H8032H8543H3318H3627H5288H6944H1870H2455H6942H3117H3627 6So the priest gave him hallowed bread: for there was no bread there but the shewbread, that was taken from before the LORD, to put hot bread in the day when it was taken away.H3548H5414H6944H3899H3899H6440H5493H6440H3068H7760H2527H3899H3117H3947 7Now a certain man of the servants of Saul was there that day, detained before the LORD; and his name was Doeg, an Edomite, the chiefest of the herdmen that belonged to Saul.H376H5650H7586H3117H6113H6440H3068H8034H1673H130H47H7462H7586 8And David said unto Ahimelech, And is there not here under thine hand spear or sword? for I have neither brought my sword nor my weapons with me, because the king's business required haste.H1732H559H288H3426H371H3027H2595H2719H3947H2719H3627H3027H4428H1697H1961H5169 9And the priest said, The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom thou slewest in the valley of Elah, behold, it is here wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod: if thou wilt take that, take it: for there is no other save that here. And David said, There is none like that; give it me.H3548H559H2719H1555H6430H5221H6010H425H3874H8071H310H646H3947H3947H312H2108H2088H1732H559H5414

David Flees to Gath

10And David arose and fled that day for fear of Saul, and went to Achish the king of Gath.H1732H6965H1272H3117H6440H7586H935H397H4428H1661 11And the servants of Achish said unto him, Is not this David the king of the land? did they not sing one to another of him in dances, saying, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands?H5650H397H559H1732H4428H776H6030H2088H4246H559H7586H5221H505H1732H7233 12And David laid up these words in his heart, and was sore afraid of Achish the king of Gath.H1732H7760H1697H3824H3966H3372H6440H397H4428H1661 13And he changed his behaviour before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard.H8138H2940H5869H1984H3027H8427H1817H8179H7388H3381H2206 14Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, ye see the man is mad: wherefore then have ye brought him to me?H559H397H5650H7200H376H7696H935 15Have I need of mad men, that ye have brought this fellow to play the mad man in my presence? shall this fellow come into my house?H2638H7696H935H7696H935H1004
