1 Samuel 19:7-12

19:7 Then Jonathan called David and told him all these things. Jonathan brought David to Saul, and he served him as he had done formerly. 1 

19:8 Now once again there was war. So David went out to fight the Philistines. He defeated them thoroughly 2  and they ran away from him. 19:9 Then an evil spirit from the Lord came upon 3  Saul. He was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand, while David was playing the lyre. 4  19:10 Saul tried to nail David to the wall with the spear, but he escaped from Saul’s presence and the spear drove into the wall. 5  David escaped quickly 6  that night.

19:11 Saul sent messengers to David’s house to guard it and to kill him in the morning. Then David’s wife Michal told him, “If you do not save yourself 7  tonight, tomorrow you will be dead!” 19:12 So Michal lowered David through the window, and he ran away and escaped.
