1Samuel 22
Amplified Bible
22SO DAVID departed and escaped to the cave of Adullam: and when his brothers and all his father's house heard it, they went down there to him.H1732H3212H4422H4631H5725H251H1H1004H8085H3381 2And everyone in distress or in debt or discontented gathered to him, and he became a commander over them. And there were with him about 400 men.H376H4689H376H5378H376H4751H5315H6908H8269H702H3967H376 3And David went from there to Mizpah of Moab; and he said to the king of Moab, Let my father [of Moabite descent] and my mother, I pray you, come out [of Judah] and be with you till I know what God will do for me.H1732H3212H4708H4124H559H4428H4124H1H517H3318H3045H430H6213 4And he brought them before the king of Moab, and they dwelt with him all the while that David was in the stronghold [in Moab].H5148H6440H4428H4124H3427H3117H1732H4686 5Then the prophet Gad said to David, Do not remain in the stronghold; leave, and get into the land of Judah. So David left and went into the forest of Hareth.H5030H1410H559H1732H3427H4686H3212H935H776H3063H1732H3212H935H3293H2802 6Saul heard that David was discovered, and the men that were with him. Saul was sitting in Gibeah under the tamarisk tree on the height, his spear in his hand and all his servants standing about him.H7586H8085H1732H3045H582H7586H3427H1390H815H7414H2595H3027H5650H5324 7Saul said to his servants who stood about him, Hear now, you Benjamites! Will the son of Jesse give every one of you fields and vineyards and make you all commanders of thousands and hundreds,H7586H559H5650H5324H8085H1145H1121H3448H5414H7704H3754H7760H8269H505H8269H3967 8That all of you have conspired against me? No one discloses to me when my son makes a league with the son of Jesse. None of you is sorry for me or discloses that my son has stirred up my servant against me to lie in wait, as he does this day?H7194H1540H241H1121H3772H1121H3448H2470H1540H241H1121H6965H5650H693H3117 9Then Doeg the Edomite, who stood with Saul's servants, said, I saw the son of Jesse come to Nob, to Ahimelech son of Ahitub.H6030H1673H130H5324H5650H7586H559H7200H1121H3448H935H5011H288H1121H285 10And [Ahimelech] inquired of the Lord for him, and gave him provisions and the sword of Goliath the Philistine.H7592H3068H5414H6720H5414H2719H1555H6430 11Then the king sent to call Ahimelech the priest, the son of Ahitub, and all his father's house, the priests who were at Nob, and they all came to the king.H4428H7971H7121H288H3548H1121H285H1H1004H3548H5011H935H4428 12Saul said, Hear now, you son of Ahitub. He replied, Here I am, my lord.H7586H559H8085H1121H285H559H113 13Saul said to him, Why have you conspired against me, you and the son of Jesse, giving him bread and a sword and inquiring of God for him, so he could rise against me to lie in wait, as he does this day?H7586H559H7194H1121H3448H5414H3899H2719H7592H430H6965H693H3117 14Then Ahimelech answered the king, And who is so faithful among all your servants as David, who is the king's son-in-law, and is taken into your council and honored in your house?H288H6030H4428H559H539H5650H1732H4428H2860H5493H4928H3513H1004 15Have I only today begun inquiring of God for him? No! Let not the king impute any wrong to his servant or to all the house of my father, for your servant has known nothing of all this, little or much.H3117H2490H7592H430H2486H4428H7760H1697H5650H1004H1H5650H3045H1697H6996H1419 16[Saul] said, You shall surely die, Ahimelech, you and all your father's house.H4428H559H4191H4191H288H1H1004 17And the king said to the guard that stood about him, Turn and slay the Lord's priests, because their hand also is with David and because they knew that he fled and did not disclose it to me. But the servants of the king would not put forth their hands against the Lord's priests.H4428H559H7323H5324H5437H4191H3548H3068H3027H1732H3045H1272H1540H241H5650H4428H14H7971H3027H6293H3548H3068 18The king said to Doeg, You turn and fall upon the priests. And Doeg the Edomite turned and attacked the priests and slew that day eighty-five persons who wore the priest's linen ephod.H4428H559H1673H5437H6293H3548H1673H130H5437H6293H3548H4191H3117H8084H2568H376H5375H906H646 19And Nob, the city of the priests, he smote with the sword; both men and women, children and sucklings, oxen and donkeys and sheep, he put to the sword.H5011H5892H3548H5221H6310H2719H376H802H5768H3243H7794H2543H7716H6310H2719 20And one of the sons of Ahimelech son of Ahitub named Abiathar escaped and fled after David.H259H1121H288H1121H285H8034H54H4422H1272H310H1732 21And Abiathar told David that Saul had slain the Lord's priests.H54H5046H1732H7586H2026H3068H3548 22David said to Abiathar, I knew that day, when Doeg the Edomite was there, that he would surely tell Saul. I have occasioned the death of all your father's house.H1732H559H54H3045H3117H1673H130H5046H5046H7586H5437H5315H1H1004 23Stay with me, fear not; for he who seeks my life seeks your life. But with me you shall be safeguarded.H3427H3372H1245H5315H1245H5315H4931
