1Samuel 22
New Revised Standard Version
22David left there and escaped to the cave of Adullam; when his brothers and all his father's house heard of it, they went down there to him.H1732H3212H4422H4631H5725H251H1H1004H8085H3381 2Everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him; and he became captain over them. Those who were with him numbered about four hundred.H376H4689H376H5378H376H4751H5315H6908H8269H702H3967H376 3David went from there to Mizpeh of Moab. He said to the king of Moab, "Please let my father and mother come to you, until I know what God will do for me."H1732H3212H4708H4124H559H4428H4124H1H517H3318H3045H430H6213 4He left them with the king of Moab, and they stayed with him all the time that David was in the stronghold.H5148H6440H4428H4124H3427H3117H1732H4686 5Then the prophet Gad said to David, "Do not remain in the stronghold; leave, and go into the land of Judah." So David left, and went into the forest of Hereth.H5030H1410H559H1732H3427H4686H3212H935H776H3063H1732H3212H935H3293H2802 6Saul heard that David and those who were with him had been located. Saul was sitting at Gibeah, under the tamarisk tree on the height, with his spear in his hand, and all his servants were standing around him.H7586H8085H1732H3045H582H7586H3427H1390H815H7414H2595H3027H5650H5324 7Saul said to his servants who stood around him, "Hear now, you Benjaminites; will the son of Jesse give every one of you fields and vineyards, will he make you all commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds?H7586H559H5650H5324H8085H1145H1121H3448H5414H7704H3754H7760H8269H505H8269H3967 8Is that why 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 to me that my son has stirred up my servant against me, to lie in wait, as he is doing today."H7194H1540H241H1121H3772H1121H3448H2470H1540H241H1121H6965H5650H693H3117 9Doeg the Edomite, who was in charge of Saul's servants, answered, "I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech son of Ahitub;H6030H1673H130H5324H5650H7586H559H7200H1121H3448H935H5011H288H1121H285 10he inquired of the LORD for him, gave him provisions, and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine."H7592H3068H5414H6720H5414H2719H1555H6430 11The king sent for the priest Ahimelech son of Ahitub and for all his father's house, the priests who were at Nob; and all of them came to the king.H4428H7971H7121H288H3548H1121H285H1H1004H3548H5011H935H4428 12Saul said, "Listen now, son of Ahitub." He answered, "Here I am, my lord."H7586H559H8085H1121H285H559H113 13Saul said to him, "Why have you conspired against me, you and the son of Jesse, by giving him bread and a sword, and by inquiring of God for him, so that he has risen against me, to lie in wait, as he is doing today?"H7586H559H7194H1121H3448H5414H3899H2719H7592H430H6965H693H3117 14Then Ahimelech answered the king, "Who among all your servants is so faithful as David? He is the king's son-in-law, and is quick to do your bidding, and is honored in your house.H288H6030H4428H559H539H5650H1732H4428H2860H5493H4928H3513H1004 15Is today the first time that I have inquired of God for him? By no means! Do not let the king impute anything to his servant or to any member of my father's house; for your servant has known nothing of all this, much or little."H3117H2490H7592H430H2486H4428H7760H1697H5650H1004H1H5650H3045H1697H6996H1419 16The king said, "You shall surely die, Ahimelech, you and all your father's house."H4428H559H4191H4191H288H1H1004 17The king said to the guard who stood around him, "Turn and kill the priests of the LORD, because their hand also is with David; they knew that he fled, and did not disclose it to me." But the servants of the king would not raise their hand to attack the priests of the LORD.H4428H559H7323H5324H5437H4191H3548H3068H3027H1732H3045H1272H1540H241H5650H4428H14H7971H3027H6293H3548H3068 18Then the king said to Doeg, "You, Doeg, turn and attack the priests." Doeg the Edomite turned and attacked the priests; on that day he killed eighty-five who wore the linen ephod.H4428H559H1673H5437H6293H3548H1673H130H5437H6293H3548H4191H3117H8084H2568H376H5375H906H646 19Nob, the city of the priests, he put to the sword; men and women, children and infants, oxen, donkeys, and sheep, he put to the sword.H5011H5892H3548H5221H6310H2719H376H802H5768H3243H7794H2543H7716H6310H2719 20But one of the sons of Ahimelech son of Ahitub, named Abiathar, escaped and fled after 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 surely tell Saul. I am responsible for the lives of all your father's house.H1732H559H54H3045H3117H1673H130H5046H5046H7586H5437H5315H1H1004 23Stay with me, and do not be afraid; for the one who seeks my life seeks your life; you will be safe with me."H3427H3372H1245H5315H1245H5315H4931
