1 Samuel 23:1-14

Then they told
<05046> (8686)
David
<01732>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, the Philistines
<06430>
fight
<03898> (8737)
against Keilah
<07084>_,
and they rob
<08154> (8802)
the threshingfloors
<01637>_.
Therefore David
<01732>
enquired
<07592> (8799)
of the LORD
<03068>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Shall I go
<03212> (8799)
and smite
<05221> (8689)
these Philistines
<06430>_?
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
Go
<03212> (8798)_,
and smite
<05221> (8689)
the Philistines
<06430>_,
and save
<03467> (8689)
Keilah
<07084>_.
And David's
<01732>
men
<0582>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Behold, we be afraid
<03373>
here in Judah
<03063>_:
how much more then if we come
<03212> (8799)
to Keilah
<07084>
against the armies
<04634>
of the Philistines
<06430>_?
Then David
<01732>
enquired
<07592> (8800)
of the LORD
<03068>
yet again
<03254> (8686)_.
And the LORD
<03068>
answered
<06030> (8799)
him and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
go down
<03381> (8798)
to Keilah
<07084>_;
for I will deliver
<05414> (8802)
the Philistines
<06430>
into thine hand
<03027>_.
So David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>
went
<03212> (8799)
to Keilah
<07084>_,
and fought
<03898> (8735)
with the Philistines
<06430>_,
and brought away
<05090> (8799)
their cattle
<04735>_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
them with a great
<01419>
slaughter
<04347>_.
So David
<01732>
saved
<03467> (8686)
the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Keilah
<07084>_.
And it came to pass, when Abiathar
<054>
the son
<01121>
of Ahimelech
<0288>
fled
<01272> (8800)
to David
<01732>
to Keilah
<07084>_,
[that] he came down
<03381> (8804)
[with] an ephod
<0646>
in his hand
<03027>_.
And it was told
<05046> (8714)
Saul
<07586>
that David
<01732>
was come
<0935> (8804)
to Keilah
<07084>_.
And Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
God
<0430>
hath delivered
<05234> (8765)
him into mine hand
<03027>_;
for he is shut in
<05462> (8738)_,
by entering
<0935> (8800)
into a town
<05892>
that hath gates
<01817>
and bars
<01280>_.
And Saul
<07586>
called
<08085> (0)
all the people
<05971>
together
<08085> (8762)
to war
<04421>_,
to go down
<03381> (8800)
to Keilah
<07084>_,
to besiege
<06696> (8800)
David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>_.
And David
<01732>
knew
<03045> (8799)
that Saul
<07586>
secretly practised
<02790> (8688)
mischief
<07451>
against him; and he said
<0559> (8799)
to Abiathar
<054>
the priest
<03548>_,
Bring hither
<05066> (8685)
the ephod
<0646>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
David
<01732>_,
O LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
thy servant
<05650>
hath certainly
<08085> (8800)
heard
<08085> (8804)
that Saul
<07586>
seeketh
<01245> (8764)
to come
<0935> (8800)
to Keilah
<07084>_,
to destroy
<07843> (8763)
the city
<05892>
for my sake.
Will the men
<01167>
of Keilah
<07084>
deliver me up
<05462> (8686)
into his hand
<03027>_?
will Saul
<07586>
come down
<03381> (8799)_,
as thy servant
<05650>
hath heard
<08085> (8804)_?
O LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
I beseech thee, tell
<05046> (8685)
thy servant
<05650>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
He will come down
<03381> (8799)_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
David
<01732>_,
Will the men
<01167>
of Keilah
<07084>
deliver
<05462> (8686)
me and my men
<0582>
into the hand
<03027>
of Saul
<07586>_?
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
They will deliver [thee] up
<05462> (8686)_.
{deliver: Heb. shut up}
Then David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>_,
[which were] about six
<08337>
hundred
<03967> <0376>_,
arose
<06965> (8799)
and departed
<03318> (8799)
out of Keilah
<07084>_,
and went
<01980> (8691)
whithersoever
<0834>
they could go
<01980> (8691)_.
And it was told
<05046> (8717)
Saul
<07586>
that David
<01732>
was escaped
<04422> (8738)
from Keilah
<07084>_;
and he forbare
<02308> (8799)
to go forth
<03318> (8800)_.
And David
<01732>
abode
<03427> (8799)
in the wilderness
<04057>
in strong holds
<04679>_,
and remained
<03427> (8799)
in a mountain
<02022>
in the wilderness
<04057>
of Ziph
<02128>_.
And Saul
<07586>
sought
<01245> (8762)
him every day
<03117>_,
but God
<0430>
delivered
<05414> (8804)
him not into his hand
<03027>_.
