1 Samuel 24

And it came to pass, when Saul
<07586>
was returned
<07725> (8804)
from following
<0310>
the Philistines
<06430>_,
that it was told
<05046> (8686)
him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, David
<01732>
[is] in the wilderness
<04057>
of Engedi
<05872>_.
{following: Heb. after}
Then Saul
<07586>
took
<03947> (8799)
three
<07969>
thousand
<0505>
chosen
<0977> (8803)
men
<0376>
out of all Israel
<03478>_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
to seek
<01245> (8763)
David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>
upon
<06440>
the rocks
<06697>
of the wild goats
<03277>_.
And he came
<0935> (8799)
to the sheepcotes
<01448> <06629>
by the way
<01870>_,
where [was] a cave
<04631>_;
and Saul
<07586>
went in
<0935> (8799)
to cover
<05526> (8687)
his feet
<07272>_:
and David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>
remained
<03427> (8802)
in the sides
<03411>
of the cave
<04631>_.
And the men
<0582>
of David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Behold the day
<03117>
of which the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8804)
unto thee, Behold, I will deliver
<05414> (8802)
thine enemy
<0341> (8802)
into thine hand
<03027>_,
that thou mayest do
<06213> (8804)
to him as it shall seem good
<03190> (8799)
unto thee
<05869>_.
Then David
<01732>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and cut off
<03772> (8799)
the skirt
<03671>
of Saul's
<07586>
robe
<04598>
privily
<03909>_.
{Saul's...: Heb. the robe which was Saul's}
And it came to pass afterward
<0310>_,
that David's
<01732>
heart
<03820>
smote
<05221> (8686)
him, because he had cut off
<03772> (8804)
Saul's
<07586>
skirt
<03671>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto his men
<0582>_,
The LORD
<03068>
forbid
<02486>
that I should do
<06213> (8799)
this thing
<01697>
unto my master
<0113>_,
the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>_,
to stretch forth
<07971> (8800)
mine hand
<03027>
against him, seeing he [is] the anointed
<04899>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
So David
<01732>
stayed
<08156> (8762)
his servants
<0582>
with these words
<01697>_,
and suffered
<05414> (8804)
them not to rise
<06965> (8800)
against Saul
<07586>_.
But Saul
<07586>
rose up
<06965> (8804)
out of the cave
<04631>_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
on [his] way
<01870>_.
{stayed: Heb. cut off}
David
<01732>
also arose
<06965> (8799)
afterward, and went out
<03318> (8799)
of the cave
<04631>_,
and cried
<07121> (8799)
after
<0310>
Saul
<07586>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
My lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_.
And when Saul
<07586>
looked
<05027> (8686)
behind
<0310>
him, David
<01732>
stooped
<06915> (8799)
with his face
<0639>
to the earth
<0776>_,
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Saul
<07586>_,
Wherefore hearest
<08085> (8799)
thou men's
<0120>
words
<01697>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, David
<01732>
seeketh
<01245> (8764)
thy hurt
<07451>_?
Behold, this day
<03117>
thine eyes
<05869>
have seen
<07200> (8804)
how that the LORD
<03068>
had delivered
<05414> (8804)
thee to day
<03117>
into mine hand
<03027>
in the cave
<04631>_:
and [some] bade
<0559> (8804)
[me] kill
<02026> (8800)
thee: but [mine eye] spared
<02347> (8799)
thee; and I said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not put forth
<07971> (8799)
mine hand
<03027>
against my lord
<0113>_;
for he [is] the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>_.
Moreover, my father
<01>_,
see
<07200> (8798)_,
yea, see
<07200> (8798)
the skirt
<03671>
of thy robe
<04598>
in my hand
<03027>_:
for in that I cut off
<03772> (8800)
the skirt
<03671>
of thy robe
<04598>_,
and killed
<02026> (8804)
thee not, know
<03045> (8798)
thou and see
<07200> (8798)
that [there is] neither evil
<07451>
nor transgression
<06588>
in mine hand
<03027>_,
and I have not sinned
<02398> (8804)
against thee; yet thou huntest
<06658> (8802)
my soul
<05315>
to take
<03947> (8800)
it.
The LORD
<03068>
judge
<08199> (8799)
between me and thee, and the LORD
<03068>
avenge
<05358> (8804)
me of thee: but mine hand
<03027>
shall not be upon thee.
As saith
<0559> (8799)
the proverb
<04912>
of the ancients
<06931>_,
Wickedness
<07562>
proceedeth
<03318> (8799)
from the wicked
<07563>_:
but mine hand
<03027>
shall not be upon thee.
After
<0310>
whom is the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
come out
<03318> (8804)_?
after
<0310>
whom dost thou pursue
<07291> (8802)_?
after
<0310>
a dead
<04191> (8801)
dog
<03611>_,
after
<0310>
a
<0259>
flea
<06550>_.
The LORD
<03068>
therefore be judge
<01781>_,
and judge
<08199> (8804)
between me and thee, and see
<07200> (8799)_,
and plead
<07378> (8799)
my cause
<07379>_,
and deliver
<08199> (8799)
me out of thine hand
<03027>_.
{deliver: Heb. judge}
And it came to pass, when David
<01732>
had made an end
<03615> (8763)
of speaking
<01696> (8763)
these words
<01697>
unto Saul
<07586>_,
that Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is] this thy voice
<06963>_,
my son
<01121>
David
<01732>_?
And Saul
<07586>
lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his voice
<06963>_,
and wept
<01058> (8799)_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
Thou [art] more righteous
<06662>
than I: for thou hast rewarded
<01580> (8804)
me good
<02896>_,
whereas I have rewarded
<01580> (8804)
thee evil
<07451>_.
And thou hast shewed
<05046> (8689)
this day
<03117>
how that thou hast dealt
<06213> (8804)
well
<02896>
with me: forasmuch as when the LORD
<03068>
had delivered
<05462> (8765)
me into thine hand
<03027>_,
thou killedst
<02026> (8804)
me not. {delivered: Heb. shut up}
For if a man
<0376>
find
<04672> (8799)
his enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
will he let him go
<07971> (8765)
well
<02896>
away
<01870>_?
wherefore the LORD
<03068>
reward
<07999> (8762)
thee good
<02896>
for that thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
unto me this day
<03117>_.
And now, behold, I know well
<03045> (8804)
that thou shalt surely
<04427> (8800)
be king
<04427> (8799)_,
and that the kingdom
<04467>
of Israel
<03478>
shall be established
<06965> (8804)
in thine hand
<03027>_.
Swear
<07650> (8734)
now therefore unto me by the LORD
<03068>_,
that thou wilt not
<0518>
cut off
<03772> (8686)
my seed
<02233>
after
<0310>
me, and that thou wilt not destroy
<08045> (8686)
my name
<08034>
out of my father's
<01>
house
<01004>_.
And David
<01732>
sware
<07650> (8735)
unto Saul
<07586>_.
And Saul
<07586>
went
<03212> (8799)
home
<01004>_;
but David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>
gat them up
<05927> (8804)
unto the hold
<04686>_.
