David’s Four Hundred Men

22David therefore departed thence, and escaped to the cave Adullam: and when his brethren and all his father's house heard it, they went down thither to him.H1732H3212H4422H4631H5725H251H1H1004H8085H3381 2And every one that was in distress, and every one that was in debt, and every one that was discontented, gathered themselves unto him; and he became a captain over them: and there were with him about four hundred men.H376H4689H376H5378H376H4751H5315H6908H8269H702H3967H376 3And David went thence to Mizpeh of Moab: and he said unto the king of Moab, Let my father and my mother, I pray thee, come forth, 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 hold.H5148H6440H4428H4124H3427H3117H1732H4686 5And the prophet Gad said unto David, Abide not in the hold; depart, and get thee into the land of Judah. Then David departed, and came into the forest of Hareth.H5030H1410H559H1732H3427H4686H3212H935H776H3063H1732H3212H935H3293H2802

Saul Murders the Priests

6When Saul heard that David was discovered, and the men that were with him, (now Saul abode in Gibeah under a tree in Ramah, having his spear in his hand, and all his servants were standing about him;)H7586H8085H1732H3045H582H7586H3427H1390H815H7414H2595H3027H5650H5324 7Then Saul said unto his servants that stood about him, Hear now, ye Benjamites; will the son of Jesse give every one of you fields and vineyards, and make you all captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds;H7586H559H5650H5324H8085H1145H1121H3448H5414H7704H3754H7760H8269H505H8269H3967 8That all of you have conspired against me, and there is none that sheweth me that my son hath made a league with the son of Jesse, and there is none of you that is sorry for me, or sheweth unto me that my son hath stirred up my servant against me, to lie in wait, as at this day?H7194H1540H241H1121H3772H1121H3448H2470H1540H241H1121H6965H5650H693H3117 9Then answered Doeg the Edomite, which was set over the servants of Saul, and said, I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech the son of Ahitub.H6030H1673H130H5324H5650H7586H559H7200H1121H3448H935H5011H288H1121H285 10And he enquired of the LORD for him, and gave him victuals, and gave him 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 that were in Nob: and they came all of them to the king.H4428H7971H7121H288H3548H1121H285H1H1004H3548H5011H935H4428 12And Saul said, Hear now, thou son of Ahitub. And he answered, Here I am, my lord.H7586H559H8085H1121H285H559H113 13And Saul said unto him, Why have ye conspired against me, thou and the son of Jesse, in that thou hast given him bread, and a sword, and hast enquired of God for him, that he should rise against me, to lie in wait, as at this day?H7586H559H7194H1121H3448H5414H3899H2719H7592H430H6965H693H3117 14Then Ahimelech answered the king, and said, And who is so faithful among all thy servants as David, which is the king's son in law, and goeth at thy bidding, and is honourable in thine house?H288H6030H4428H559H539H5650H1732H4428H2860H5493H4928H3513H1004 15Did I then begin to enquire of God for him? be it far from me: let not the king impute any thing unto his servant, nor to all the house of my father: for thy servant knew nothing of all this, less or more.H3117H2490H7592H430H2486H4428H7760H1697H5650H1004H1H5650H3045H1697H6996H1419 16And the king said, Thou shalt surely die, Ahimelech, thou, and all thy father's house.H4428H559H4191H4191H288H1H1004 17And the king said unto the footmen that stood about him, Turn, and slay the priests of the LORD: because their hand also is with David, and because they knew when he fled, and did not shew it to me. But the servants of the king would not put forth their hand to fall upon the priests of the LORD.H4428H559H7323H5324H5437H4191H3548H3068H3027H1732H3045H1272H1540H241H5650H4428H14H7971H3027H6293H3548H3068 18And the king said to Doeg, Turn thou, and fall upon the priests. And Doeg the Edomite turned, and he fell upon the priests, and slew on that day fourscore and five persons that did wear a linen ephod.H4428H559H1673H5437H6293H3548H1673H130H5437H6293H3548H4191H3117H8084H2568H376H5375H906H646 19And Nob, the city of the priests, smote he with the edge of the sword, both men and women, children and sucklings, and oxen, and asses, and sheep, with the edge of the sword.H5011H5892H3548H5221H6310H2719H376H802H5768H3243H7794H2543H7716H6310H2719 20And one of the sons of Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, named Abiathar, escaped, and fled after David.H259H1121H288H1121H285H8034H54H4422H1272H310H1732 21And Abiathar shewed David that Saul had slain the LORD's priests.H54H5046H1732H7586H2026H3068H3548 22And David said unto Abiathar, I knew it that day, when Doeg the Edomite was there, that he would surely tell Saul: I have occasioned the death of all the persons of thy father's house.H1732H559H54H3045H3117H1673H130H5046H5046H7586H5437H5315H1H1004 23Abide thou with me, fear not: for he that seeketh my life seeketh thy life: but with me thou shalt be in safeguard.H3427H3372H1245H5315H1245H5315H4931
