Chapter 18

  1. 1. And it came to pass, when he had made an end
    H3615
    of speaking
    H1696
    unto Saul,
    H7586
    that the soul
    H5315
    of Jonathan
    H3083
    was knit
    H7194
    with the soul
    H5315
    of David,
    H1732
    and Jonathan
    H3083
    loved
    H157
    him as his own soul.
    H5315
  2. 2. And Saul
    H7586
    took
    H3947
    him that day,
    H3117
    and would let
    H5414
    him go no more home
    H7725
    to his father's
    H1
    house.
    H1004
  3. 3. Then Jonathan
    H3083
    and David
    H1732
    made
    H3772
    a covenant,
    H1285
    because he loved
    H160
    him as his own soul.
    H5315
  4. 4. And Jonathan
    H3083
    stripped
    H6584
    himself of the robe
    H4598
    that was upon him, and gave
    H5414
    it to David,
    H1732
    and his garments,
    H4055
    even to his sword,
    H2719
    and to his bow,
    H7198
    and to his girdle.
    H2289
  5. 5. And David
    H1732
    went out
    H3318
    whithersoever Saul
    H7586
    sent
    H7971
    him, and behaved himself wisely:
    H7919
    and Saul
    H7586
    set
    H7760
    him over the men
    H582
    of war,
    H4421
    and he was accepted
    H3190
    in the sight
    H5869
    of all the people,
    H5971
    and also in the sight
    H5869
    of Saul's
    H7586
    servants.
    H5650
  6. 6. And it came to pass as they came,
    H935
    when David
    H1732
    was returned
    H7725
    from the slaughter
    H5221
    of the Philistine,
    H6430
    that the women
    H802
    came out
    H3318
    of all cities
    H5892
    of Israel,
    H3478
    singing
    H7891
    and dancing,
    H4246
    to meet
    H7125
    king
    H4428
    Saul,
    H7586
    with tabrets,
    H8596
    with joy,
    H8057
    and with instruments
    H7991
    of musick.
  7. 7. And the women
    H802
    answered
    H6030
    one another as they played,
    H7832
    and said,
    H559
    Saul
    H7586
    hath slain
    H5221
    his thousands,
    H505
    and David
    H1732
    his ten thousands.
    H7233
  8. 8. And Saul
    H7586
    was very
    H3966
    wroth,
    H2734
    and the saying
    H1697
    displeased
    H3415
    H5869
    him; and he said,
    H559
    They have ascribed
    H5414
    unto David
    H1732
    ten thousands,
    H7233
    and to me they have ascribed
    H5414
    but thousands:
    H505
    and what can he have more but the kingdom?
    H4410
  9. 9. And Saul
    H7586
    eyed
    H5770
    David
    H1732
    from that day
    H3117
    and forward.
    H1973
  10. 10. And it came to pass on the morrow,
    H4283
    that the evil
    H7451
    spirit
    H7307
    from God
    H430
    came
    H6743
    upon Saul,
    H7586
    and he prophesied
    H5012
    in the midst
    H8432
    of the house:
    H1004
    and David
    H1732
    played
    H5059
    with his hand,
    H3027
    as at other times:
    H3117
    and there was a javelin
    H2595
    in Saul's
    H7586
    hand.
    H3027
  11. 11. And Saul
    H7586
    cast
    H2904
    the javelin;
    H2595
    for he said,
    H559
    I will smite
    H5221
    David
    H1732
    even to the wall
    H7023
    with it. And David
    H1732
    avoided out
    H5437
    of his presence
    H6440
    twice.
    H6471
  12. 12. And Saul
    H7586
    was afraid
    H3372
    of
    H6440
    David,
    H1732
    because the LORD
    H3068
    was with him, and was departed
    H5493
    from Saul.
    H7586
  13. 13. Therefore Saul
    H7586
    removed
    H5493
    him from him, and made
    H7760
    him his captain
    H8269
    over a thousand;
    H505
    and he went out
    H3318
    and came in
    H935
    before
    H6440
    the people.
    H5971
  14. 14. And David
    H1732
    behaved himself wisely
    H7919
    in all his ways;
    H1870
    and the LORD
    H3068
    was with him.
  15. 15. Wherefore when Saul
    H7586
    saw
    H7200
    that he behaved
    H7919
    himself very
    H3966
    wisely,
    H7919
    he was afraid
    H1481
    of
    H6440
    him.
  16. 16. But all Israel
    H3478
    and Judah
    H3063
    loved
    H157
    David,
    H1732
    because he went out
    H3318
    and came in
    H935
    before
    H6440
    them.
  17. 17. And Saul
    H7586
    said
    H559
    to David,
    H1732
    Behold my elder
    H1419
    daughter
    H1323
    Merab,
    H4764
    her will I give
    H5414
    thee to wife:
    H802
    only be thou valiant
    H2428
    for
    H1121
    me, and fight
    H3898
    the LORD'S
    H3068
    battles.
    H4421
    For Saul
    H7586
    said,
    H559
    Let not mine hand
    H3027
    be upon him, but let the hand
    H3027
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    be upon him.
  18. 18. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    unto Saul,
    H7586
    Who am I? and what is my life,
    H2416
    or my father's
    H1
    family
    H4940
    in Israel,
    H3478
    that I should be son in law
    H2860
    to the king?
    H4428
  19. 19. But it came to pass at the time
    H6256
    when Merab
    H4764
    Saul's
    H7586
    daughter
    H1323
    should have been given
    H5414
    to David,
    H1732
    that she was given
    H5414
    unto Adriel
    H5741
    the Meholathite
    H4259
    to wife.
    H802
  20. 20. And Michal
    H4324
    Saul's
    H7586
    daughter
    H1323
    loved
    H157
    David:
    H1732
    and they told
    H5046
    Saul,
    H7586
    and the thing
    H1697
    pleased
    H3474
    H5869
    him.
  21. 21. And Saul
    H7586
    said,
    H559
    I will give
    H5414
    him her, that she may be a snare
    H4170
    to him, and that the hand
    H3027
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    may be against him. Wherefore Saul
    H7586
    said
    H559
    to David,
    H1732
    Thou shalt this day
    H3117
    be my son in law
    H2859
    in the one of the twain.
    H8147
  22. 22. And Saul
    H7586
    commanded
    H6680
    his servants,
    H5650
    saying, Commune
    H1696
    with David
    H1732
    secretly,
    H3909
    and say,
    H559
    Behold, the king
    H4428
    hath delight
    H2654
    in thee, and all his servants
    H5650
    love
    H157
    thee: now therefore be the king's
    H4428
    son in law.
    H2859
  23. 23. And Saul's
    H7586
    servants
    H5650
    spake
    H1696
    those words
    H1697
    in the ears
    H241
    of David.
    H1732
    And David
    H1732
    said,
    H559
    Seemeth
    H5869
    it to you a light
    H7043
    thing to be a king's
    H4428
    son in law,
    H2859
    seeing that I am a poor
    H7326
    man,
    H376
    and lightly esteemed?
    H7034
  24. 24. And the servants
    H5650
    of Saul
    H7586
    told
    H5046
    him, saying,
    H559
    On this manner
    H1697
    spake
    H1696
    David.
    H1732
  25. 25. And Saul
    H7586
    said,
    H559
    Thus shall ye say
    H559
    to David,
    H1732
    The king
    H4428
    desireth
    H2656
    not any dowry,
    H4119
    but an hundred
    H3967
    foreskins
    H6190
    of the Philistines,
    H6430
    to be avenged
    H5358
    of the king's
    H4428
    enemies.
    H341
    But Saul
    H7586
    thought
    H2803
    to make David
    H1732
    fall
    H5307
    by the hand
    H3027
    of the Philistines.
    H6430
  26. 26. And when his servants
    H5650
    told
    H5046
    David
    H1732
    these words,
    H1697
    it pleased
    H3474
    H5869
    H1697
    David
    H1732
    well to be the king's
    H4428
    son in law:
    H2859
    and the days
    H3117
    were not expired.
    H4390
  27. 27. Wherefore David
    H1732
    arose
    H6965
    and went,
    H3212
    he and his men,
    H582
    and slew
    H5221
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    two hundred
    H3967
    men;
    H376
    and David
    H1732
    brought
    H935
    their foreskins,
    H6190
    and they gave them in full tale
    H4390
    to the king,
    H4428
    that he might be the king's
    H4428
    son in law.
    H2859
    And Saul
    H7586
    gave
    H5414
    him Michal
    H4324
    his daughter
    H1323
    to wife.
    H802
  28. 28. And Saul
    H7586
    saw
    H7200
    and knew
    H3045
    that the LORD
    H3068
    was with David,
    H1732
    and that Michal
    H4324
    Saul's
    H7586
    daughter
    H1323
    loved
    H157
    him.
  29. 29. And Saul
    H7586
    was yet the more
    H3254
    afraid
    H3372
    of
    H6440
    David;
    H1732
    and Saul
    H7586
    became David's
    H1732
    enemy
    H341
    continually.
    H3117
  30. 30. Then the princes
    H8269
    of the Philistines
    H6430
    went forth:
    H3318
    and it came to pass, after
    H1767
    they went forth,
    H3318
    that David
    H1732
    behaved himself more wisely
    H7919
    than all the servants
    H5650
    of Saul;
    H7586
    so that his name
    H8034
    was much
    H3966
    set by.
