18:27 when David, along with his men, went out 1 and struck down two hundred Philistine men. David brought their foreskins and presented all of them to the king so he could become the king’s son-in-law. Saul then gave him his daughter Michal in marriage.
18:28 When Saul realized 2 that the Lord was with David and that his 3 daughter Michal loved David, 4 18:29 Saul became even more afraid of him. 5 Saul continued to be at odds with David from then on. 6 18:30 7 Then the leaders of the Philistines would march out, and as often as they did so, David achieved more success than all of Saul’s servants. His name was held in high esteem.
19:1 Then Saul told his son Jonathan and all his servants to kill David. But Saul’s son Jonathan liked David very much. 8 19:2 So Jonathan told David, “My father Saul is trying 9 to kill you. So be careful tomorrow morning. Find 10 a hiding place and stay in seclusion. 11
