1Samuel 30
Amplified Bible
30NOW WHEN David and his men came home to Ziklag on the third day, they found that the Amalekites had made a raid on the South (the Negeb) and on Ziklag, and had struck Ziklag and burned it with fire,H1732H582H935H6860H7992H3117H6003H6584H5045H6860H5221H6860H8313H784 2And had taken the women and all who were there, both great and small, captive. They killed no one, but carried them off and went on their way.H802H7617H4191H376H1419H6996H5090H3212H1870 3So David and his men came to the town, and behold, it was burned, and their wives and sons and daughters were taken captive.H1732H582H935H5892H8313H784H802H1121H1323H7617 4Then David and the men with him lifted up their voices and wept until they had no more strength to weep.H1732H5971H5375H6963H1058H3581H1058 5David's two wives also had been taken captive, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess and Abigail, the widow of Nabal the Carmelite.H1732H8147H802H7617H293H3159H26H802H5037H3761 6David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David encouraged {and} strengthened himself in the Lord his God.H1732H3966H3334H5971H559H5619H5315H5971H4843H376H1121H1323H1732H2388H3068H430 7David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, I pray you, bring me the ephod. And Abiathar brought him the ephod.H1732H559H54H3548H288H1121H5066H646H54H5066H646H1732 8And David inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them? The Lord answered him, Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.H1732H7592H3068H559H7291H310H1416H5381H559H7291H5381H5381H5337H5337 9So David went, he and the 600 men with him, and came to the brook Besor; there those remained who were left behind.H1732H3212H8337H3967H376H935H5158H1308H3498H5975 10But David pursued, he and 400 men, for 200 stayed behind who were too exhausted {and} faint to cross the brook Besor.H1732H7291H702H3967H376H3967H5975H6296H5674H5158H1308 11They found an Egyptian in the field and brought him to David, and gave him bread and he ate, and water to drink,H4672H376H4713H7704H3947H1732H5414H3899H398H8248H4325 12And a piece of a cake of figs and two clusters of raisins; and when he had eaten, his spirit returned to him, for he had eaten no food or drunk any water for three days and three nights.H5414H6400H1690H8147H6778H398H7307H7725H398H3899H8354H4325H7969H3117H7969H3915 13And David said to him, To whom do you belong? And from where have you come? He said, I am a young man of Egypt, servant to an Amalekite; and my master left me because three days ago I fell sick.H1732H559H559H5288H4713H5650H376H6003H113H5800H7969H3117H2470 14We had made a raid on the South (Negeb) of the Cherethites and upon that which belongs to Judah and upon the South (Negeb) of Caleb. And we burned Ziklag with fire.H6584H5045H3774H3063H5045H3612H8313H6860H784 15And David said to him, Can you take me down to this band? And he said, Swear to me by God that you will neither kill me nor deliver me into the hands of my master, and I will bring you down to this band.H1732H559H3381H1416H559H7650H430H4191H518H5462H3027H113H3381H1416 16And when he had brought David down, behold, the raiders were spread abroad over all the land, eating and drinking and dancing because of all the great spoil they had taken from the land of the Philistines and from the land of Judah.H3381H5203H6440H776H398H8354H2287H1419H7998H3947H776H6430H776H3063 17And David smote them from twilight even to the evening of the next day, and not a man of them escaped, except 400 youths who rode camels and fled.H1732H5221H5399H6153H4283H4422H376H702H3967H5288H376H7392H1581H5127 18David recovered all that the Amalekites had taken and rescued his two wives.H1732H5337H6002H3947H1732H5337H8147H802 19Nothing was missing, small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything that had been taken; David recovered all.H5737H4480H6996H1419H1121H1323H7998H3947H1732H7725 20Also David captured all the flocks and herds [which the enemy had], and the people drove those animals before him and said, This is David's spoil.H1732H3947H6629H1241H5090H6440H1931H4735H559H1732H7998 21And David came to the 200 men who were so exhausted {and} faint that they could not follow [him] and had been left at the brook Besor [with the baggage]. They came to meet David and those with him, and when he came near to the men, he saluted them.H1732H935H3967H582H6296H3212H310H1732H3427H5158H1308H3318H7125H1732H7125H5971H1732H5066H5971H7592H7965 22Then all the wicked and base men who went with David said, Because they did not go with us, we will give them nothing of the spoil we have recovered, except that every man may lead away his wife and children and depart.H6030H7451H376H1100H582H1980H1732H559H1980H5414H7998H5337H376H802H1121H5090H3212 23David said, You shall not do so, my brethren, with what the Lord has given us. He has preserved us and has delivered into our hands the troop that came against us.H559H1732H6213H251H3068H5414H8104H5414H1416H935H3027 24Who would listen to you in this matter? For as is the share of him who goes into the battle, so shall his share be who stays by the baggage. They shall share alike.H8085H1697H2506H3381H3381H4421H2506H3427H3627H2505H3162 25And from that day to this he made it a statute and ordinance for Israel.H3117H4605H7760H2706H4941H3478H3117 26When David came to Ziklag, he sent part of the spoil to the elders of Judah, his friends, saying, Here is a gift for you of the spoil of the enemies of the Lord:H1732H935H6860H7971H7998H2205H3063H7453H559H1293H7998H341H3068 27For those in Bethel, Ramoth of the Negeb, Jattir,H834H1008H5045H7418H3492 28Aroer, Siphmoth, Eshtemoa,H6177H8224H851 29Racal, the cities of the Jerahmeelites, the cities of the Kenites,H7403H5892H3397H5892H7017 30Hormah, Bor-ashan, Athach,H2767H3565H6269 31Hebron, and for those in all the places David and his men had habitually haunted.H2275H4725H1732H582H1980
