The Philistines Mistrust David

29NOW THE Philistines gathered all their forces at Aphek, and the Israelites encamped by the fountain in Jezreel.H6430H6908H4264H663H3478H2583H5869H3157 2As the Philistine lords were passing on by hundreds and by thousands, and David and his men were in the rear with Achish,H5633H6430H5674H3967H505H1732H582H5674H314H397 3The Philistine princes said, What are these Hebrews doing here? Achish said to the Philistine princes, Is not this David, the servant of Saul king of Israel, who has been with me these days and years, and I have found no fault in him since he deserted to me to this day?H559H8269H6430H5680H397H559H8269H6430H1732H5650H7586H4428H3478H3117H8141H4672H3972H3117H5307H3117 4And the Philistine princes were angry with Achish and they said to him, Make this fellow return, that he may go again to his place where you have assigned him, and let him not go down with us to battle, lest in the battle he become an adversary to us. For how could David reconcile himself to his master? Would it not be with the heads of the men here?H8269H6430H7107H8269H6430H559H7725H376H7725H7725H4725H6485H3381H4421H4421H7854H7521H113H7218H582 5Is not this David, of whom they sang to one another in dances, Saul slew his thousands, and David his ten thousands?H1732H6030H4246H559H7586H5221H505H1732H7233 6Then Achish called David and said to him, As surely as the Lord lives, you have been honest {and} upright, and for you to go out and come in with me in the army is good in my sight; for I have found no evil in you from the day of your coming to me to this day. Yet the lords do not approve of you.H397H7121H1732H559H3068H2416H3477H3318H935H4264H2896H5869H4672H7451H3117H935H3117H5633H2896H5869 7So return now and go peaceably, so as not to displease the Philistine lords.H7725H3212H7965H6213H7451H5869H5633H6430 8David said to Achish, But what have I done? And what have you found in your servant as long as I have been with you to this day, that I may not go and fight against the enemies of my lord the king?H1732H559H397H6213H4672H5650H3117H6440H3117H935H3898H341H113H4428 9And Achish said to David, I know that you are as blameless in my sight as an angel of God; nevertheless the princes of the Philistines have said, He shall not go up with us to the battle.H397H6030H559H1732H3045H2896H5869H4397H430H8269H6430H559H5927H4421 10So now rise up early in the morning, with your master's servants who have come with you, and as soon as you are up and have light, depart.H7925H1242H113H5650H935H7925H1242H215H3212 11So David and his men rose up early in the morning to return to the land of the Philistines. But the Philistines went up to Jezreel [to fight against Israel].H1732H582H7925H3212H1242H7725H776H6430H6430H5927H3157
