The Philistines Reject David

29Then the Philistines gathered together all their armies at Aphek, and the Israelites encamped by a fountain which is in Jezreel.H6430H6908H4264H663H3478H2583H5869H3157 2And the lords of the Philistines passed in review by hundreds and by thousands, but David and his men passed in review at the rear with Achish.H5633H6430H5674H3967H505H1732H582H5674H314H397 3Then the princes of the Philistines said, "What are these Hebrews doing here?" And Achish said to the princes of the Philistines, "Is this not David, the servant of Saul king of Israel, who has been with me these days, or these years? And to this day I have found no fault in him since he defected to me."H559H8269H6430H5680H397H559H8269H6430H1732H5650H7586H4428H3478H3117H8141H4672H3972H3117H5307H3117 4But the princes of the Philistines were angry with him; so the princes of the Philistines said to him, "Make this fellow return, that he may go back to the place which you have appointed for him, and do not let him go down with us to battle, lest in the battle he become our adversary. For with what could he reconcile himself to his master, if not with the heads of these men?H8269H6430H7107H8269H6430H559H7725H376H7725H7725H4725H6485H3381H4421H4421H7854H7521H113H7218H582 5"Is this not David, of whom they sang to one another in dances, saying: 'Saul has slain his thousands, And David his ten thousands'?"H1732H6030H4246H559H7586H5221H505H1732H7233 6Then Achish called David and said to him, "Surely, as the LORD lives, you have been upright, and your going out and your coming in with me in the army is good in my sight. For to this day I have not found evil in you since the day of your coming to me. Nevertheless the lords do not favor you.H397H7121H1732H559H3068H2416H3477H3318H935H4264H2896H5869H4672H7451H3117H935H3117H5633H2896H5869 7"Therefore return now, and go in peace, that you may not displease the lords of the Philistines."H7725H3212H7965H6213H7451H5869H5633H6430 8So David said to Achish, "But what have I done? And to this day what have you found in your servant as long as I have been with you, that I may not go and fight against the enemies of my lord the king?"H1732H559H397H6213H4672H5650H3117H6440H3117H935H3898H341H113H4428 9Then Achish answered and said to David, "I know that you are as good 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 10"Now therefore, rise early in the morning with your master's servants who have come with you. And as soon as you are up early in the morning and have light, depart."H7925H1242H113H5650H935H7925H1242H215H3212 11So David and his men rose early to depart in the morning, to return to the land of the Philistines. And the Philistines went up to Jezreel.H1732H582H7925H3212H1242H7725H776H6430H6430H5927H3157
