1Samuel 21
New American Standard Bible
21Then David came to Nob to Ahimelech the priest; and Ahimelech came trembling to meet David, and said to him, "Why are you alone and no one with you?"H935H1732H5011H288H3548H288H2729H7125H1732H559H376 2And David said to Ahimelech the priest, "The king has commissioned me with a matter, and has said to me, 'Let no one know anything about the matter on which I am sending you and with which I have commissioned you; and I have directed the young men to a certain place.'H1732H559H288H3548H4428H6680H1697H559H376H3045H3972H1697H7971H6680H3045H5288H6423H492H4725 3"Now therefore, what do you have on hand? Give me five loaves of bread, or whatever can be found."H3426H3027H5414H2568H3899H3027H4672 4And the priest answered David and said, "There is no ordinary bread on hand, but there is consecrated bread; if only the young men have kept themselves from women."H3548H6030H1732H559H2455H3899H3027H3426H6944H3899H5288H8104H389H802 5And David answered the priest and said to him, "Surely women have been kept from us as previously when I set out and the vessels of the young men were holy, though it was an ordinary journey; how much more then today will their vessels [be holy]?"H1732H6030H3548H559H518H802H6113H8032H8543H3318H3627H5288H6944H1870H2455H6942H3117H3627 6So the priest gave him consecrated [bread]; for there was no bread there but the bread of the Presence which was removed from before the LORD, in order to put hot bread [in its place] when it was taken away.H3548H5414H6944H3899H3899H6440H5493H6440H3068H7760H2527H3899H3117H3947 7Now one of the servants of Saul was there that day, detained before the LORD; and his name was Doeg the Edomite, the chief of Saul's shepherds.H376H5650H7586H3117H6113H6440H3068H8034H1673H130H47H7462H7586 8And David said to Ahimelech, "Now is there not a spear or a sword on hand? For I brought neither my sword nor my weapons with me, because the king's matter was urgent."H1732H559H288H3426H371H3027H2595H2719H3947H2719H3627H3027H4428H1697H1961H5169 9Then the priest said, "The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you killed in the valley of Elah, behold, it is wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod; if you would take it for yourself, take [it.] For there is no other except it here." And David said, "There is none like it; give it to me."H3548H559H2719H1555H6430H5221H6010H425H3874H8071H310H646H3947H3947H312H2108H2088H1732H559H5414 10Then David arose and fled that day from Saul, and went to Achish king of Gath.H1732H6965H1272H3117H6440H7586H935H397H4428H1661 11But the servants of Achish said to him, "Is this not David the king of the land? Did they not sing of this one as they danced, saying, ' Saul has slain his thousands, And David his ten thousands'?"H5650H397H559H1732H4428H776H6030H2088H4246H559H7586H5221H505H1732H7233 12And David took these words to heart, and greatly feared Achish king of Gath.H1732H7760H1697H3824H3966H3372H6440H397H4428H1661 13So he disguised his sanity before them, and acted insanely in their hands, and scribbled on the doors of the gate, and let his saliva run down into his beard.H8138H2940H5869H1984H3027H8427H1817H8179H7388H3381H2206 14Then Achish said to his servants, "Behold, you see the man behaving as a madman. Why do you bring him to me?H559H397H5650H7200H376H7696H935 15"Do I lack madmen, that you have brought this one to act the madman in my presence? Shall this one come into my house?"H2638H7696H935H7696H935H1004
