1Samuel 22
International Standard Version
22David left from there and escaped to the Cave of Adullam. His brothers and all his father's family heard about this and went down to him there.H1732H3212H4422H4631H5725H251H1H1004H8085H3381 2Everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was malcontent gathered around him, and he became their leader. There were about 400 men with him.H376H4689H376H5378H376H4751H5315H6908H8269H702H3967H376 3David went from there to Mizpah of Moab, and he said to the king of Moab, "Please let my father and mother come and stay with you until I know what God is going to do for me."H1732H3212H4708H4124H559H4428H4124H1H517H3318H3045H430H6213 4David left them with the king of Moab, and they stayed with him all the time David was in the stronghold.H5148H6440H4428H4124H3427H3117H1732H4686 5The prophet Gad said to David, "Don't remain in the stronghold. Go and enter the territory of Judah." So David left and went into the forest of Hereth.H5030H1410H559H1732H3427H4686H3212H935H776H3063H1732H3212H935H3293H2802 6When Saul heard that David and the men who were with him had been found, he was sitting in Gibeah, under the tamarisk tree on the hill, with his spear in his hand. All his officials were standing around him.H7586H8085H1732H3045H582H7586H3427H1390H815H7414H2595H3027H5650H5324 7Saul said to his officials who were standing around him, "Listen, men of Benjamin! Will Jesse's son also give fields and vineyards to all of you?Will he make all of you officers over thousands and officers over hundreds?H7586H559H5650H5324H8085H1145H1121H3448H5414H7704H3754H7760H8269H505H8269H3967 8But all of you have conspired against me, and no one tells me about my son's covenant with Jesse's son. None of you feels sorry for me and tells me that my son has stirred up my servant against me to lie in wait, as he's doing this day."H7194H1540H241H1121H3772H1121H3448H2470H1540H241H1121H6965H5650H693H3117 9Then Doeg the Edomite, who was in charge of Saul's servants answered: "I saw Jesse's son coming to Nob to Ahitub's son Ahimelech.H6030H1673H130H5324H5650H7586H559H7200H1121H3448H935H5011H288H1121H285 10Ahimelech inquired of the Lord for him, gave him provisions, and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine."H7592H3068H5414H6720H5414H2719H1555H6430 11The king sent for Ahitub's son Ahimelech the priest and for all his father's family who were priests at Nob. All of them came to the king.H4428H7971H7121H288H3548H1121H285H1H1004H3548H5011H935H4428 12Saul said, "Listen, son of Ahitub!" And he said, "Here I am, your majesty."H7586H559H8085H1121H285H559H113 13Then Saul asked him, "Why have you conspired against me - you and Jesse's son - by giving him food and a sword, and by inquiring of God for him, so he can rise up against me to lie in wait, as he's doing today?"H7586H559H7194H1121H3448H5414H3899H2719H7592H430H6965H693H3117 14Ahimelech answered the king, "Who among all your officials is as faithful as David?He is the king's son-in-law, the captain of your bodyguard, and he's honored in your household.H288H6030H4428H559H539H5650H1732H4428H2860H5493H4928H3513H1004 15Is today the first time I inquired of God for him?Absolutely not! The king shouldn't accuse his servant, or any of my father's family of anything, because your servant didn't know anything at all about this."H3117H2490H7592H430H2486H4428H7760H1697H5650H1004H1H5650H3045H1697H6996H1419 16The king said, "Ahimelech, you will surely die, you and all your father's family!"H4428H559H4191H4191H288H1H1004 17The king said to the guards, who were standing beside him, "Turn and kill the priests of the Lord because they supported David, and because they knew he was fleeing, but didn't inform me." But the officials of the king did not want to lift their hands to attack the priests of the Lord.22H4428H559H7323H5324H5437H4191H3548H3068H3027H1732H3045H1272H1540H241H5650H4428H14H7971H3027H6293H3548H3068 18Then the king said to Doeg, "You turn and attack the priests." Doeg the Edomite turned and attacked the priests. That day he killed eighty-five men who carry the linen ephod.H4428H559H1673H5437H6293H3548H1673H130H5437H6293H3548H4191H3117H8084H2568H376H5375H906H646 19He attacked the priestly town of Nob with the sword. Men and women, children and infants, oxen, donkeys and sheep were put to the sword.2218H5011H5892H3548H5221H6310H2719H376H802H5768H3243H7794H2543H7716H6310H2719 20One man, Ahimelech's son Abiathar, a grandson of Ahitub, escaped and fled to David.H259H1121H288H1121H285H8034H54H4422H1272H310H1732 21Abiathar told David that Saul had killed the priests of the Lord.H54H5046H1732H7586H2026H3068H3548 22David said to Abiathar, "I knew on that day when Doeg the Edomite was there that he would certainly tell Saul! I'm responsible for the deaths of your father's whole family.H1732H559H54H3045H3117H1673H130H5046H5046H7586H5437H5315H1H1004 23Stay with me, and don't be afraid because the one who seeks my life, seeks your life. Indeed, you will be safe with me."H3427H3372H1245H5315H1245H5315H4931
