1 Samuel 21:4-5

Context

21:4 The priest replied to David, “I don’t have any ordinary bread at my disposal. Only holy bread is available, and then only if your soldiers 1  have abstained from sexual relations with women.” 2  21:5 David said to the priest, “Certainly women have been kept away from us, just as on previous occasions when I have set out. The soldiers’ 3  equipment is holy, even on an ordinary journey. How much more so will they be holy today, along with their equipment!”
