1 Samuel 16:14-23

But the Spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>
departed
<05493> (8804)
from Saul
<07586>_,
and an evil
<07451>
spirit
<07307>
from the LORD
<03068>
troubled
<01204> (8765)
him. {troubled: or, terrified}
And Saul's
<07586>
servants
<05650>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Behold now, an evil
<07451>
spirit
<07307>
from God
<0430>
troubleth
<01204> (8764)
thee.
Let our lord
<0113>
now command
<0559> (8799)
thy servants
<05650>_,
[which are] before
<06440>
thee, to seek out
<01245> (8762)
a man
<0376>_,
[who is] a cunning
<03045> (8802)
player
<05059> (8764)
on an harp
<03658>_:
and it shall come to pass, when the evil
<07451>
spirit
<07307>
from God
<0430>
is upon thee, that he shall play
<05059> (8765)
with his hand
<03027>_,
and thou shalt be well
<02895> (8804)_.
And Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto his servants
<05650>_,
Provide
<07200> (8798)
me now a man
<0376>
that can play
<05059> (8763)
well
<03190> (8688)_,
and bring
<0935> (8689)
[him] to me.
Then answered
<06030> (8799)
one
<0259>
of the servants
<05288>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, I have seen
<07200> (8804)
a son
<01121>
of Jesse
<03448>
the Bethlehemite
<01022>_,
[that is] cunning
<03045> (8802)
in playing
<05059> (8763)_,
and a mighty
<01368>
valiant man
<02428>_,
and a man
<0376>
of war
<04421>_,
and prudent
<0995> (8737)
in matters
<01697>_,
and a comely
<08389>
person
<0376>_,
and the LORD
<03068>
[is] with him. {matters: or, speech}
Wherefore Saul
<07586>
sent
<07971> (8799)
messengers
<04397>
unto Jesse
<03448>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Send
<07971> (8798)
me David
<01732>
thy son
<01121>_,
which [is] with the sheep
<06629>_.
And Jesse
<03448>
took
<03947> (8799)
an ass
<02543>
[laden] with bread
<03899>_,
and a bottle
<04997>
of wine
<03196>_,
and a
<0259>
kid
<01423> <05795>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
[them] by
<03027>
David
<01732>
his son
<01121>
unto Saul
<07586>_.
And David
<01732>
came
<0935> (8799)
to Saul
<07586>_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
him: and he loved
<0157> (8799)
him greatly
<03966>_;
and he became his armourbearer
<05375> (8802) <03627>_.
And Saul
<07586>
sent
<07971> (8799)
to Jesse
<03448>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Let David
<01732>_,
I pray thee, stand
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
me; for he hath found
<04672> (8804)
favour
<02580>
in my sight
<05869>_.
And it came to pass, when the [evil] spirit
<07307>
from God
<0430>
was upon Saul
<07586>_,
that David
<01732>
took
<03947> (8804)
an harp
<03658>_,
and played
<05059> (8765)
with his hand
<03027>_:
so Saul
<07586>
was refreshed
<07304> (8804)_,
and was well
<02895> (8804)_,
and the evil
<07451>
spirit
<07307>
departed
<05493> (8804)
from him.
