1 Samuel 18

And it came to pass, when he had made an end
<03615> (8763)
of speaking
<01696> (8763)
unto Saul
<07586>_,
that the soul
<05315>
of Jonathan
<03083>
was knit
<07194> (8738)
with the soul
<05315>
of David
<01732>_,
and Jonathan
<03083>
loved
<0157> (8799)
him as his own soul
<05315>_.
And Saul
<07586>
took
<03947> (8799)
him that day
<03117>_,
and would let
<05414> (8804)
him go no more home
<07725> (8800)
to his father's
<01>
house
<01004>_.
Then Jonathan
<03083>
and David
<01732>
made
<03772> (8799)
a covenant
<01285>_,
because he loved
<0160>
him as his own soul
<05315>_.
And Jonathan
<03083>
stripped
<06584> (8691)
himself of the robe
<04598>
that [was] upon him, and gave
<05414> (8799)
it to David
<01732>_,
and his garments
<04055>_,
even to his sword
<02719>_,
and to his bow
<07198>_,
and to his girdle
<02289>_.
And David
<01732>
went out
<03318> (8799)
whithersoever Saul
<07586>
sent
<07971> (8799)
him, [and] behaved himself wisely
<07919> (8686)_:
and Saul
<07586>
set
<07760> (8799)
him over the men
<0582>
of war
<04421>_,
and he was accepted
<03190> (8799)
in the sight
<05869>
of all the people
<05971>_,
and also in the sight
<05869>
of Saul's
<07586>
servants
<05650>_.
{behaved...: or, prospered}
And it came to pass as they came
<0935> (8800)_,
when David
<01732>
was returned
<07725> (8800)
from the slaughter
<05221> (8687)
of the Philistine
<06430>_,
that the women
<0802>
came out
<03318> (8799)
of all cities
<05892>
of Israel
<03478>_,
singing
<07891> (8800)
and dancing
<04246>_,
to meet
<07125> (8800)
king
<04428>
Saul
<07586>_,
with tabrets
<08596>_,
with joy
<08057>_,
and with instruments
<07991>
of musick. {Philistine: or, Philistines} {instruments...: Heb. three stringed instruments}
And the women
<0802>
answered
<06030> (8799)
[one another] as they played
<07832> (8764)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Saul
<07586>
hath slain
<05221> (8689)
his thousands
<0505>_,
and David
<01732>
his ten thousands
<07233>_.
And Saul
<07586>
was very
<03966>
wroth
<02734> (8799)_,
and the saying
<01697>
displeased
<03415> (8799) <05869>
him; and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
They have ascribed
<05414> (8804)
unto David
<01732>
ten thousands
<07233>_,
and to me they have ascribed
<05414> (8804)
[but] thousands
<0505>_:
and [what] can he have more but the kingdom
<04410>_?
{displeased him: Heb. was evil in his eyes}
And Saul
<07586>
eyed
<05770> (8802)
David
<01732>
from that day
<03117>
and forward
<01973>_.
And it came to pass on the morrow
<04283>_,
that the evil
<07451>
spirit
<07307>
from God
<0430>
came
<06743> (8799)
upon Saul
<07586>_,
and he prophesied
<05012> (8691)
in the midst
<08432>
of the house
<01004>_:
and David
<01732>
played
<05059> (8764)
with his hand
<03027>_,
as at other times
<03117>_:
and [there was] a javelin
<02595>
in Saul's
<07586>
hand
<03027>_.
And Saul
<07586>
cast
<02904> (8686)
the javelin
<02595>_;
for he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will smite
<05221> (8686)
David
<01732>
even to the wall
<07023>
[with it]. And David
<01732>
avoided out
<05437> (8735)
of his presence
<06440>
twice
<06471>_.
And Saul
<07586>
was afraid
<03372> (8799)
of
<06440>
David
<01732>_,
because the LORD
<03068>
was with him, and was departed
<05493> (8804)
from Saul
<07586>_.
Therefore Saul
<07586>
removed
<05493> (8686)
him from him, and made
<07760> (8799)
him his captain
<08269>
over a thousand
<0505>_;
and he went out
<03318> (8799)
and came in
<0935> (8799)
before
<06440>
the people
<05971>_.
And David
<01732>
behaved himself wisely
<07919> (8688)
in all his ways
<01870>_;
and the LORD
<03068>
[was] with him. {behaved...: or, prospered}
Wherefore when Saul
<07586>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that he behaved
<07919> (0)
himself very
<03966>
wisely
<07919> (8688)_,
he was afraid
<01481> (8799)
of
<06440>
him.
But all Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>
loved
<0157> (8802)
David
<01732>_,
because he went out
<03318> (8802)
and came in
<0935> (8802)
before
<06440>
them.
And Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
Behold my elder
<01419>
daughter
<01323>
Merab
<04764>_,
her will I give
<05414> (8799)
thee to wife
<0802>_:
only be thou valiant
<01121> <02428>
for me, and fight
<03898> (8734)
the LORD'S
<03068>
battles
<04421>_.
For Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8804)_,
Let not mine hand
<03027>
be upon him, but let the hand
<03027>
of the Philistines
<06430>
be upon him. {valiant: Heb. a son of valour}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Saul
<07586>_,
Who [am] I? and what [is] my life
<02416>_,
[or] my father's
<01>
family
<04940>
in Israel
<03478>_,
that I should be son in law
<02860>
to the king
<04428>_?
But it came to pass at the time
<06256>
when Merab
<04764>
Saul's
<07586>
daughter
<01323>
should have been given
<05414> (8800)
to David
<01732>_,
that she was given
<05414> (8738)
unto Adriel
<05741>
the Meholathite
<04259>
to wife
<0802>_.
And Michal
<04324>
Saul's
<07586>
daughter
<01323>
loved
<0157> (8799)
David
<01732>_:
and they told
<05046> (8686)
Saul
<07586>_,
and the thing
<01697>
pleased
<03474> (8799) <05869>
him. {pleased him: Heb. was right in his eyes}
And Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will give
<05414> (8799)
him her, that she may be a snare
<04170>
to him, and that the hand
<03027>
of the Philistines
<06430>
may be against him. Wherefore Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
Thou shalt this day
<03117>
be my son in law
<02859> (8691)
in [the one of] the twain
<08147>_.
And Saul
<07586>
commanded
<06680> (8762)
his servants
<05650>_,
[saying], Commune
<01696> (8761)
with David
<01732>
secretly
<03909>_,
and say
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, the king
<04428>
hath delight
<02654> (8804)
in thee, and all his servants
<05650>
love
<0157> (8804)
thee: now therefore be the king's
<04428>
son in law
<02859> (8690)_.
And Saul's
<07586>
servants
<05650>
spake
<01696> (8762)
those words
<01697>
in the ears
<0241>
of David
<01732>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Seemeth
<05869>
it to you [a] light
<07043> (8738)
[thing] to be a king's
<04428>
son in law
<02859> (8692)_,
seeing that I [am] a poor
<07326> (8802)
man
<0376>_,
and lightly esteemed
<07034> (8737)_?
And the servants
<05650>
of Saul
<07586>
told
<05046> (8686)
him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
On this manner
<01697>
spake
<01696> (8765)
David
<01732>_.
{On...: Heb. According to these words}
And Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thus shall ye say
<0559> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
The king
<04428>
desireth
<02656>
not any dowry
<04119>_,
but an hundred
<03967>
foreskins
<06190>
of the Philistines
<06430>_,
to be avenged
<05358> (8736)
of the king's
<04428>
enemies
<0341> (8802)_.
But Saul
<07586>
thought
<02803> (8804)
to make David
<01732>
fall
<05307> (8687)
by the hand
<03027>
of the Philistines
<06430>_.
And when his servants
<05650>
told
<05046> (8686)
David
<01732>
these words
<01697>_,
it pleased
<03474> (8799) <01697> <05869>
David
<01732>
well to be the king's
<04428>
son in law
<02859> (8692)_:
and the days
<03117>
were not expired
<04390> (8804)_.
{expired: Heb. fulfilled}
Wherefore David
<01732>
arose
<06965> (8799)
and went
<03212> (8799)_,
he and his men
<0582>_,
and slew
<05221> (8686)
of the Philistines
<06430>
two hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>_;
and David
<01732>
brought
<0935> (8686)
their foreskins
<06190>_,
and they gave them in full tale
<04390> (8762)
to the king
<04428>_,
that he might be the king's
<04428>
son in law
<02859> (8692)_.
And Saul
<07586>
gave
<05414> (8799)
him Michal
<04324>
his daughter
<01323>
to wife
<0802>_.
And Saul
<07586>
saw
<07200> (8799)
and knew
<03045> (8799)
that the LORD
<03068>
[was] with David
<01732>_,
and [that] Michal
<04324>
Saul's
<07586>
daughter
<01323>
loved
<0157> (8804)
him.
And Saul
<07586>
was yet the more
<03254> (8686)
afraid
<03372> (8800)
of
<06440>
David
<01732>_;
and Saul
<07586>
became David's
<01732>
enemy
<0341> (8802)
continually
<03117>_.
Then the princes
<08269>
of the Philistines
<06430>
went forth
<03318> (8799)_:
and it came to pass, after
<01767>
they went forth
<03318> (8800)_,
[that] David
<01732>
behaved himself more wisely
<07919> (8804)
than all the servants
<05650>
of Saul
<07586>_;
so that his name
<08034>
was much
<03966>
set by
<03365> (8799)_.
{set by: Heb. precious}
