1Samuel 22
New American Standard Bible
22So David departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam; and when his brothers and all his father's household heard [of it], they went down there to him.H1732H3212H4422H4631H5725H251H1H1004H8085H3381 2And everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented, gathered to him; and he became captain over them. Now there were about four hundred men with him.H376H4689H376H5378H376H4751H5315H6908H8269H702H3967H376 3And David went from there to Mizpah of Moab; and he said to the king of Moab, "Please let my father and my mother come [and stay] with you until I know what God will do for me."H1732H3212H4708H4124H559H4428H4124H1H517H3318H3045H430H6213 4Then he left them with the king of Moab; and they stayed with him all the time that David was in the stronghold.H5148H6440H4428H4124H3427H3117H1732H4686 5And the prophet Gad said to David, "Do not stay in the stronghold; depart, and go into the land of Judah." So David departed and went into the forest of Hereth.H5030H1410H559H1732H3427H4686H3212H935H776H3063H1732H3212H935H3293H2802 6Then Saul heard that David and the men who were with him had been discovered. Now Saul was sitting in Gibeah, under the tamarisk tree on the height with his spear in his hand, and all his servants were standing around him.H7586H8085H1732H3045H582H7586H3427H1390H815H7414H2595H3027H5650H5324 7And Saul said to his servants who stood around him, "Hear now, O Benjamites! Will the son of Jesse also give to all of you fields and vineyards? Will he make you all commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds?H7586H559H5650H5324H8085H1145H1121H3448H5414H7704H3754H7760H8269H505H8269H3967 8"For all of you have conspired against me so that there is no one who discloses to me when my son makes [a covenant] with the son of Jesse, and there is none of you who is sorry for me or discloses to me that my son has stirred up my servant against me to lie in ambush, as [it is] this day."H7194H1540H241H1121H3772H1121H3448H2470H1540H241H1121H6965H5650H693H3117 9Then Doeg the Edomite, who was standing by the servants of Saul, answered and said, "I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech the son of Ahitub.H6030H1673H130H5324H5650H7586H559H7200H1121H3448H935H5011H288H1121H285 10"And he inquired of the LORD for him, gave him provisions, and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine."H7592H3068H5414H6720H5414H2719H1555H6430 11Then the king sent someone to summon Ahimelech the priest, the son of Ahitub, and all his father's household, the priests who were in Nob; and all of them came to the king.H4428H7971H7121H288H3548H1121H285H1H1004H3548H5011H935H4428 12And Saul said, "Listen now, son of Ahitub." And he answered, "Here I am, my lord."H7586H559H8085H1121H285H559H113 13Saul then said to him, "Why have you and the son of Jesse conspired against me, in that you have given him bread and a sword and have inquired of God for him, that he should rise up against me by lying in ambush as [it is] this day?"H7586H559H7194H1121H3448H5414H3899H2719H7592H430H6965H693H3117 14Then Ahimelech answered the king and said, "And who among all your servants is as faithful as David, even the king's son-in-law, who is captain over your guard, and is honored in your house?H288H6030H4428H559H539H5650H1732H4428H2860H5493H4928H3513H1004 15"Did I [just] begin to inquire of God for him today? Far be it from me! Do not let the king impute anything to his servant [or] to any of the household of my father, for your servant knows nothing at all of this whole affair."H3117H2490H7592H430H2486H4428H7760H1697H5650H1004H1H5650H3045H1697H6996H1419 16But the king said, "You shall surely die, Ahimelech, you and all your father's household!"H4428H559H4191H4191H288H1H1004 17And the king said to the guards who were attending him, "Turn around and put the priests of the LORD to death, because their hand also is with David and because they knew that he was fleeing and did not reveal it to me." But the servants of the king were not willing to put forth their hands to attack the priests of the LORD.H4428H559H7323H5324H5437H4191H3548H3068H3027H1732H3045H1272H1540H241H5650H4428H14H7971H3027H6293H3548H3068 18Then the king said to Doeg, "You turn around and attack the priests." And Doeg the Edomite turned around and attacked the priests, and he killed that day eighty-five men who wore the linen ephod.H4428H559H1673H5437H6293H3548H1673H130H5437H6293H3548H4191H3117H8084H2568H376H5375H906H646 19And he struck Nob the city of the priests with the edge of the sword, both men and women, children and infants; also oxen, donkeys, and sheep, [he struck] with the edge of the sword.H5011H5892H3548H5221H6310H2719H376H802H5768H3243H7794H2543H7716H6310H2719 20But one son of Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, named Abiathar, escaped and fled after David.H259H1121H288H1121H285H8034H54H4422H1272H310H1732 21And Abiathar told David that Saul had killed the priests of the LORD.H54H5046H1732H7586H2026H3068H3548 22Then David said to Abiathar, "I knew on that day, when Doeg the Edomite was there, that he would surely tell Saul. I have brought about [the death] of every person in your father's household.H1732H559H54H3045H3117H1673H130H5046H5046H7586H5437H5315H1H1004 23"Stay with me, do not be afraid, for he who seeks my life seeks your life; for you are safe with me."H3427H3372H1245H5315H1245H5315H4931
