1 Samuel 27:1-12

And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
in his heart
<03820>_,
I shall now perish
<05595> (8735)
one
<0259>
day
<03117>
by the hand
<03027>
of Saul
<07586>_:
[there is] nothing better
<02896>
for me than that
<03588>
I should speedily
<04422> (8736)
escape
<04422> (8735)
into the land
<0776>
of the Philistines
<06430>_;
and Saul
<07586>
shall despair
<02976> (8738)
of me, to seek
<01245> (8763)
me any more in any coast
<01366>
of Israel
<03478>_:
so shall I escape
<04422> (8738)
out of his hand
<03027>_.
{perish: Heb. be consumed}
And David
<01732>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and he passed over
<05674> (8799)
with the six
<08337>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
that [were] with him unto Achish
<0397>_,
the son
<01121>
of Maoch
<04582>_,
king
<04428>
of Gath
<01661>_.
And David
<01732>
dwelt
<03427> (8799)
with Achish
<0397>
at Gath
<01661>_,
he and his men
<0582>_,
every man
<0376>
with his household
<01004>_,
[even] David
<01732>
with his two
<08147>
wives
<0802>_,
Ahinoam
<0293>
the Jezreelitess
<03159>_,
and Abigail
<026>
the Carmelitess
<03762>_,
Nabal's
<05037>
wife
<0802>_.
And it was told
<05046> (8714)
Saul
<07586>
that David
<01732>
was fled
<01272> (8804)
to Gath
<01661>_:
and he sought
<01245> (8763)
no more again
<03254> (8804) (8675) <03254> (8686)
for him.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Achish
<0397>_,
If I have now found
<04672> (8804)
grace
<02580>
in thine eyes
<05869>_,
let them give
<05414> (8799)
me a place
<04725>
in some
<0259>
town
<05892>
in the country
<07704>_,
that I may dwell
<03427> (8799)
there: for why should thy servant
<05650>
dwell
<03427> (8799)
in the royal
<04467>
city
<05892>
with thee?
Then Achish
<0397>
gave
<05414> (8799)
him Ziklag
<06860>
that day
<03117>_:
wherefore Ziklag
<06860>
pertaineth unto the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
unto this day
<03117>_.
And the time
<04557> <03117>
that David
<01732>
dwelt
<03427> (8804)
in the country
<07704>
of the Philistines
<06430>
was a full year
<03117>
and four
<0702>
months
<02320>_.
{the time: Heb. the number of days} {a full year: Heb. a year of days}
And David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>
went up
<05927> (8799)_,
and invaded
<06584> (8799)
the Geshurites
<01651>_,
and the Gezrites
<01511>_,
and the Amalekites
<06003>_:
for those
<02007>
[nations were] of old
<05769>
the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of the land
<0776>_,
as thou goest
<0935> (8800)
to Shur
<07793>_,
even unto the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
{Gezrites: or, Gerzites}
And David
<01732>
smote
<05221> (8689)
the land
<0776>_,
and left neither man
<0376>
nor woman
<0802>
alive
<02421> (8762)_,
and took away
<03947> (8804)
the sheep
<06629>_,
and the oxen
<01241>_,
and the asses
<02543>_,
and the camels
<01581>_,
and the apparel
<0899>_,
and returned
<07725> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Achish
<0397>_.
And Achish
<0397>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Whither
<0408>
have ye made a road
<06584> (8804)
to day
<03117>_?
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Against the south
<05045>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and against the south
<05045>
of the Jerahmeelites
<03397>_,
and against the south
<05045>
of the Kenites
<07017>_.
{Whither...: or, Did you not make a road, etc}
And David
<01732>
saved
<02421> (8762)
neither man
<0376>
nor woman
<0802>
alive
<02421> (8762)_,
to bring
<0935> (8687)
[tidings] to Gath
<01661>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Lest they should tell
<05046> (8686)
on us, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
So did
<06213> (8804)
David
<01732>_,
and so [will be] his manner
<04941>
all the while
<03117>
he dwelleth
<03427> (8804)
in the country
<07704>
of the Philistines
<06430>_.
And Achish
<0397>
believed
<0539> (8686)
David
<01732>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
He hath made his people
<05971>
Israel
<03478>
utterly
<0887> (8687)
to abhor
<0887> (8689)
him; therefore he shall be my servant
<05650>
for ever
<05769>_.
{utterly...: Heb. to stink}
