1 Samuel 26

And the Ziphites
<02130>
came
<0935> (8799)
unto Saul
<07586>
to Gibeah
<01390>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Doth not David
<01732>
hide
<05641> (8693)
himself in the hill
<01389>
of Hachilah
<02444>_,
[which is] before
<06440>
Jeshimon
<03452>_?
Then Saul
<07586>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and went down
<03381> (8799)
to the wilderness
<04057>
of Ziph
<02128>_,
having three
<07969>
thousand
<0505>
chosen
<0977> (8803)
men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
with him, to seek
<01245> (8763)
David
<01732>
in the wilderness
<04057>
of Ziph
<02128>_.
And Saul
<07586>
pitched
<02583> (8799)
in the hill
<01389>
of Hachilah
<02444>_,
which [is] before
<06440>
Jeshimon
<03452>_,
by the way
<01870>_.
But David
<01732>
abode
<03427> (8802)
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
and he saw
<07200> (8799)
that Saul
<07586>
came
<0935> (8804)
after
<0310>
him into the wilderness
<04057>_.
David
<01732>
therefore sent out
<07971> (8799)
spies
<07270> (8764)_,
and understood
<03045> (8799)
that Saul
<07586>
was come
<0935> (8804)
in very deed
<03559> (8737)_.
And David
<01732>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to the place
<04725>
where Saul
<07586>
had pitched
<02583> (8804)_:
and David
<01732>
beheld
<07200> (8799)
the place
<04725>
where Saul
<07586>
lay
<07901> (8804)_,
and Abner
<074>
the son
<01121>
of Ner
<05369>_,
the captain
<08269>
of his host
<06635>_:
and Saul
<07586>
lay
<07901> (8802)
in the trench
<04570>_,
and the people
<05971>
pitched
<02583> (8802)
round about
<05439>
him. {trench: or, midst of his carriages}
Then answered
<06030> (8799)
David
<01732>
and said
<0559> (8799)
to Ahimelech
<0288>
the Hittite
<02850>_,
and to Abishai
<052>
the son
<01121>
of Zeruiah
<06870>_,
brother
<0251>
to Joab
<03097>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Who will go down
<03381> (8799)
with me to Saul
<07586>
to the camp
<04264>_?
And Abishai
<052>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will go down
<03381> (8799)
with thee.
So David
<01732>
and Abishai
<052>
came
<0935> (8799)
to the people
<05971>
by night
<03915>_:
and, behold, Saul
<07586>
lay
<07901> (8802)
sleeping
<03463>
within the trench
<04570>_,
and his spear
<02595>
stuck
<04600> (8803)
in the ground
<0776>
at his bolster
<04763>_:
but Abner
<074>
and the people
<05971>
lay
<07901> (8802)
round about
<05439>
him.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Abishai
<052>
to David
<01732>_,
God
<0430>
hath delivered
<05462> (8765)
thine enemy
<0341> (8802)
into thine hand
<03027>
this day
<03117>_:
now therefore let me smite
<05221> (8686)
him, I pray thee, with the spear
<02595>
even to the earth
<0776>
at once
<06471> <0259>_,
and I will not [smite] him the second time
<08138> (8799)_.
{delivered: Heb. shut up}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Abishai
<052>_,
Destroy
<07843> (8686)
him not: for who can stretch forth
<07971> (8804)
his hand
<03027>
against the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>_,
and be guiltless
<05352> (8738)_?
David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
furthermore, [As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
the LORD
<03068>
shall smite
<05062> (8799)
him; or his day
<03117>
shall come
<0935> (8799)
to die
<04191> (8804)_;
or he shall descend
<03381> (8799)
into battle
<04421>_,
and perish
<05595> (8738)_.
The LORD
<03068>
forbid
<02486>
that I should stretch forth
<07971> (8800)
mine hand
<03027>
against the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>_:
but, I pray thee, take
<03947> (8798)
thou now the spear
<02595>
that [is] at his bolster
<04763>_,
and the cruse
<06835>
of water
<04325>_,
and let us go
<03212> (8799)_.
So David
<01732>
took
<03947> (8799)
the spear
<02595>
and the cruse
<06835>
of water
<04325>
from Saul's
<07586>
bolster
<07226>_;
and they gat them away
<03212> (8799)_,
and no man saw
<07200> (8802)
[it], nor knew
<03045> (8802)
[it], neither awaked
<06974> (8688)_:
for they [were] all asleep
<03463>_;
because a deep sleep
<08639>
from the LORD
<03068>
was fallen
<05307> (8804)
upon them.
Then David
<01732>
went over
<05674> (8799)
to the other side
<05676>_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
on the top
<07218>
of an hill
<02022>
afar off
<07350>_;
a great
<07227>
space
<04725>
[being] between them:
And David
<01732>
cried
<07121> (8799)
to the people
<05971>_,
and to Abner
<074>
the son
<01121>
of Ner
<05369>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Answerest
<06030> (8799)
thou not, Abner
<074>_?
Then Abner
<074>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Who [art] thou [that] criest
<07121> (8804)
to the king
<04428>_?
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Abner
<074>_,
[Art] not thou a [valiant] man
<0376>_?
and who [is] like to thee in Israel
<03478>_?
wherefore then hast thou not kept
<08104> (8804)
thy lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_?
for there came
<0935> (8804)
one
<0259>
of the people
<05971>
in to destroy
<07843> (8687)
the king
<04428>
thy lord
<0113>_.
This thing
<01697>
[is] not good
<02896>
that thou hast done
<06213> (8804)_.
[As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
ye [are] worthy
<01121>
to die
<04194>_,
because ye have not kept
<08104> (8804)
your master
<0113>_,
the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>_.
And now see
<07200> (8798)
where the king's
<04428>
spear
<02595>
[is], and the cruse
<06835>
of water
<04325>
that [was] at his bolster
<04763>_.
{worthy to die: Heb. the sons of death}
And Saul
<07586>
knew
<05234> (8686)
David's
<01732>
voice
<06963>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is] this thy voice
<06963>_,
my son
<01121>
David
<01732>_?
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[It is] my voice
<06963>_,
my lord
<0113>_,
O king
<04428>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wherefore doth my lord
<0113>
thus pursue
<07291> (8802)
after
<0310>
his servant
<05650>_?
for what have I done
<06213> (8804)_?
or what evil
<07451>
[is] in mine hand
<03027>_?
Now therefore, I pray thee, let my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
hear
<08085> (8799)
the words
<01697>
of his servant
<05650>_.
If the LORD
<03068>
have stirred thee up
<05496> (8689)
against me, let him accept
<07306> (8686)
an offering
<04503>_:
but if [they be] the children
<01121>
of men
<0120>_,
cursed
<0779> (8803)
[be] they before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_;
for they have driven
<01644> (8765)
me out this day
<03117>
from abiding
<05596> (8692)
in the inheritance
<05159>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Go
<03212> (8798)_,
serve
<05647> (8798)
other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_.
{accept: Heb. smell} {abiding: Heb. cleaving}
Now therefore, let not my blood
<01818>
fall
<05307> (8799)
to the earth
<0776>
before the face
<06440>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
for the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
is come out
<03318> (8804)
to seek
<01245> (8763)
a
<0259>
flea
<06550>_,
as when one doth hunt
<07291> (8799)
a partridge
<07124>
in the mountains
<02022>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Saul
<07586>_,
I have sinned
<02398> (8804)_:
return
<07725> (8798)_,
my son
<01121>
David
<01732>_:
for I will no more do thee harm
<07489> (8686)_,
because my soul
<05315>
was precious
<03365> (8804)
in thine eyes
<05869>
this day
<03117>_:
behold, I have played the fool
<05528> (8689)_,
and have erred
<07686> (8799)
exceedingly
<07235> (8687) <03966>_.
And David
<01732>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold the king's
<04428>
spear
<02595>_!
and let one
<0259>
of the young men
<05288>
come over
<05674> (8799)
and fetch
<03947> (8799)
it.
The LORD
<03068>
render
<07725> (8686)
to every man
<0376>
his righteousness
<06666>
and his faithfulness
<0530>_:
for the LORD
<03068>
delivered
<05414> (8804)
thee into [my] hand
<03027>
to day
<03117>_,
but I would
<014> (8804)
not stretch forth
<07971> (8800)
mine hand
<03027>
against the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>_.
And, behold, as thy life
<05315>
was much set by
<01431> (8804)
this day
<03117>
in mine eyes
<05869>_,
so let my life
<05315>
be much set by
<01431> (8799)
in the eyes
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and let him deliver
<05337> (8686)
me out of all tribulation
<06869>_.
Then Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
Blessed
<01288> (8803)
[be] thou, my son
<01121>
David
<01732>_:
thou shalt both do
<06213> (8799)
great
<06213> (8800)
[things], and also shalt still
<03201> (8800)
prevail
<03201> (8799)_.
So David
<01732>
went
<03212> (8799)
on his way
<01870>_,
and Saul
<07586>
returned
<07725> (8804)
to his place
<04725>_.
