1Samuel 23
King James Version (with Strongs Data)
23Then they toldH5046 DavidH1732, sayingH559, Behold, the PhilistinesH6430 fightH3898 against KeilahH7084, and they robH8154 the threshingfloorsH1637. 2Therefore DavidH1732 enquiredH7592 of the LORDH3068, sayingH559, Shall I goH3212 and smiteH5221 these PhilistinesH6430? And the LORDH3068 saidH559 unto DavidH1732, GoH3212, and smiteH5221 the PhilistinesH6430, and saveH3467 KeilahH7084. 3And David'sH1732 menH582 saidH559 unto him, Behold, we be afraidH3373 here in JudahH3063: how much more then if we comeH3212 to KeilahH7084 against the armiesH4634 of the PhilistinesH6430? 4Then DavidH1732 enquiredH7592 of the LORDH3068 yet againH3254. And the LORDH3068 answeredH6030 him and saidH559, AriseH6965, go downH3381 to KeilahH7084; for I will deliverH5414 the PhilistinesH6430 into thine handH3027. 5So DavidH1732 and his menH582 wentH3212 to KeilahH7084, and foughtH3898 with the PhilistinesH6430, and brought awayH5090 their cattleH4735, and smoteH5221 them with a greatH1419 slaughterH4347. So DavidH1732 savedH3467 the inhabitantsH3427 of KeilahH7084. 6And it came to pass, when AbiatharH54 the sonH1121 of AhimelechH288 fledH1272 to DavidH1732 to KeilahH7084, that he came downH3381 with an ephodH646 in his handH3027. 7And it was toldH5046 SaulH7586 that DavidH1732 was comeH935 to KeilahH7084. And SaulH7586 saidH559, GodH430 hath deliveredH5234 him into mine handH3027; for he is shut inH5462, by enteringH935 into a townH5892 that hath gatesH1817 and barsH1280. 8And SaulH7586 calledH8085 all the peopleH5971 togetherH8085 to warH4421, to go downH3381 to KeilahH7084, to besiegeH6696 DavidH1732 and his menH582. 9And DavidH1732 knewH3045 that SaulH7586 secretly practisedH2790 mischiefH7451 against him; and he saidH559 to AbiatharH54 the priestH3548, Bring hitherH5066 the ephodH646. 10Then saidH559 DavidH1732, O LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478, thy servantH5650 hath certainlyH8085 heardH8085 that SaulH7586 seekethH1245 to comeH935 to KeilahH7084, to destroyH7843 the cityH5892 for my sake. 11Will the menH1167 of KeilahH7084 deliver me upH5462 into his handH3027? will SaulH7586 come downH3381, as thy servantH5650 hath heardH8085? O LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478, I beseech thee, tellH5046 thy servantH5650. And the LORDH3068 saidH559, He will come downH3381. 12Then saidH559 DavidH1732, Will the menH1167 of KeilahH7084 deliverH5462 me and my menH582 into the handH3027 of SaulH7586? And the LORDH3068 saidH559, They will deliver thee upH5462. 13Then DavidH1732 and his menH582, which were about sixH8337 hundredH3967H376, aroseH6965 and departedH3318 out of KeilahH7084, and wentH1980 whithersoeverH834 they could goH1980. And it was toldH5046 SaulH7586 that DavidH1732 was escapedH4422 from KeilahH7084; and he forbareH2308 to go forthH3318. 14And DavidH1732 abodeH3427 in the wildernessH4057 in strong holdsH4679, and remainedH3427 in a mountainH2022 in the wildernessH4057 of ZiphH2128. And SaulH7586 soughtH1245 him every dayH3117, but GodH430 deliveredH5414 him not into his handH3027. 15And DavidH1732 sawH7200 that SaulH7586 was come outH3318 to seekH1245 his lifeH5315: and DavidH1732 was in the wildernessH4057 of ZiphH2128 in a woodH2793. 16And JonathanH3083 Saul'sH7586 sonH1121 aroseH6965, and wentH3212 to DavidH1732 into the woodH2793, and strengthenedH2388 his handH3027 in GodH430. 17And he saidH559 unto him, FearH3372 not: for the handH3027 of SaulH7586 my fatherH1 shall not findH4672 thee; and thou shalt be kingH4427 over IsraelH3478, and I shall be nextH4932 unto thee; and that also SaulH7586 my fatherH1 knowethH3045. 18And they twoH8147 madeH3772 a covenantH1285 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068: and DavidH1732 abodeH3427 in the woodH2793, and JonathanH3083 wentH1980 to his houseH1004. 19Then came upH5927 the ZiphitesH2130 to SaulH7586 to GibeahH1390, sayingH559, Doth not DavidH1732 hideH5641 himself with us in strong holdsH4679 in the woodH2793, in the hillH1389 of HachilahH2444, which is on the southH3225 of JeshimonH3452? 20Now therefore, O kingH4428, come downH3381 according to all the desireH185 of thy soulH5315 to come downH3381; and our part shall be to deliverH5462 him into the king'sH4428 handH3027. 21And SaulH7586 saidH559, BlessedH1288 be ye of the LORDH3068; for ye have compassionH2550 on me. 22GoH3212, I pray you, prepareH3559 yet, and knowH3045 and seeH7200 his placeH4725 where his hauntH7272 is, and who hath seenH7200 him there: for it is toldH559 me that he dealeth veryH6191 subtillyH6191. 23SeeH7200 therefore, and take knowledgeH3045 of all the lurking placesH4224 where he hidethH2244 himself, and come ye againH7725 to me with the certaintyH3559, and I will goH1980 with you: and it shall come to pass, if he beH3426 in the landH776, that I will searchH2664 him out throughout all the thousandsH505 of JudahH3063. 24And they aroseH6965, and wentH3212 to ZiphH2128 beforeH6440 SaulH7586: but DavidH1732 and his menH582 were in the wildernessH4057 of MaonH4584, in the plainH6160 on the southH3225 of JeshimonH3452. 25SaulH7586 also and his menH582 wentH3212 to seekH1245 him. And they toldH5046 DavidH1732: wherefore he came downH3381 into a rockH5553, and abodeH3427 in the wildernessH4057 of MaonH4584. And when SaulH7586 heardH8085 that, he pursuedH7291 afterH310 DavidH1732 in the wildernessH4057 of MaonH4584. 26And SaulH7586 wentH3212 on this sideH6654 of the mountainH2022, and DavidH1732 and his menH582 on that sideH6654 of the mountainH2022: and DavidH1732 made hasteH2648 to get awayH3212 for fearH6440 of SaulH7586; for SaulH7586 and his menH582 compassedH5849 DavidH1732 and his menH582 round aboutH5849 to takeH8610 them. 27But there cameH935 a messengerH4397 unto SaulH7586, sayingH559, HasteH4116 thee, and comeH3212; for the PhilistinesH6430 have invadedH6584 the landH776. 28Wherefore SaulH7586 returnedH7725 from pursuingH7291 afterH310 DavidH1732, and wentH3212 againstH7125 the PhilistinesH6430: therefore they calledH7121 that placeH4725 SelahammahlekothH5555. 29And DavidH1732 went upH5927 from thence, and dweltH3427 in strong holdsH4679 at EngediH5872.
