Chapter 23

  1. 1. Then they told
    H5046
    David,
    H1732
    saying,
    H559
    Behold, the Philistines
    H6430
    fight
    H3898
    against Keilah,
    H7084
    and they rob
    H8154
    the threshingfloors.
    H1637
  2. 2. Therefore David
    H1732
    enquired
    H7592
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    saying,
    H559
    Shall I go
    H3212
    and smite
    H5221
    these Philistines?
    H6430
    And the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto David,
    H1732
    Go,
    H3212
    and smite
    H5221
    the Philistines,
    H6430
    and save
    H3467
    Keilah.
    H7084
  3. 3. And David's
    H1732
    men
    H582
    said
    H559
    unto him, Behold, we be afraid
    H3373
    here in Judah:
    H3063
    how much more then if we come
    H3212
    to Keilah
    H7084
    against the armies
    H4634
    of the Philistines?
    H6430
  4. 4. Then David
    H1732
    enquired
    H7592
    of the LORD
    H3068
    yet again.
    H3254
    And the LORD
    H3068
    answered
    H6030
    him and said,
    H559
    Arise,
    H6965
    go down
    H3381
    to Keilah;
    H7084
    for I will deliver
    H5414
    the Philistines
    H6430
    into thine hand.
    H3027
  5. 5. So David
    H1732
    and his men
    H582
    went
    H3212
    to Keilah,
    H7084
    and fought
    H3898
    with the Philistines,
    H6430
    and brought away
    H5090
    their cattle,
    H4735
    and smote
    H5221
    them with a great
    H1419
    slaughter.
    H4347
    So David
    H1732
    saved
    H3467
    the inhabitants
    H3427
    of Keilah.
    H7084
  6. 6. And it came to pass, when Abiathar
    H54
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahimelech
    H288
    fled
    H1272
    to David
    H1732
    to Keilah,
    H7084
    that he came down
    H3381
    with an ephod
    H646
    in his hand.
    H3027
  7. 7. And it was told
    H5046
    Saul
    H7586
    that David
    H1732
    was come
    H935
    to Keilah.
    H7084
    And Saul
    H7586
    said,
    H559
    God
    H430
    hath delivered
    H5234
    him into mine hand;
    H3027
    for he is shut in,
    H5462
    by entering
    H935
    into a town
    H5892
    that hath gates
    H1817
    and bars.
    H1280
  8. 8. And Saul
    H7586
    called
    H8085
    all the people
    H5971
    together
    H8085
    to war,
    H4421
    to go down
    H3381
    to Keilah,
    H7084
    to besiege
    H6696
    David
    H1732
    and his men.
    H582
  9. 9. And David
    H1732
    knew
    H3045
    that Saul
    H7586
    secretly practised
    H2790
    mischief
    H7451
    against him; and he said
    H559
    to Abiathar
    H54
    the priest,
    H3548
    Bring hither
    H5066
    the ephod.
    H646
  10. 10. Then said
    H559
    David,
    H1732
    O LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    thy servant
    H5650
    hath certainly
    H8085
    heard
    H8085
    that Saul
    H7586
    seeketh
    H1245
    to come
    H935
    to Keilah,
    H7084
    to destroy
    H7843
    the city
    H5892
    for my sake.
  11. 11. Will the men
    H1167
    of Keilah
    H7084
    deliver me up
    H5462
    into his hand?
    H3027
    will Saul
    H7586
    come down,
    H3381
    as thy servant
    H5650
    hath heard?
    H8085
    O LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    I beseech thee, tell
    H5046
    thy servant.
    H5650
    And the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    He will come down.
    H3381
  12. 12. Then said
    H559
    David,
    H1732
    Will the men
    H1167
    of Keilah
    H7084
    deliver
    H5462
    me and my men
    H582
    into the hand
    H3027
    of Saul?
    H7586
    And the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    They will deliver thee up.
    H5462
  13. 13. Then David
    H1732
    and his men,
    H582
    which were about six
    H8337
    hundred,
    H376
    H3967
    arose
    H6965
    and departed
    H3318
    out of Keilah,
    H7084
    and went
    H1980
    whithersoever
    H834
    they could go.
    H1980
    And it was told
    H5046
    Saul
    H7586
    that David
    H1732
    was escaped
    H4422
    from Keilah;
    H7084
    and he forbare
    H2308
    to go forth.
    H3318
  14. 14. And David
    H1732
    abode
    H3427
    in the wilderness
    H4057
    in strong holds,
    H4679
    and remained
    H3427
    in a mountain
    H2022
    in the wilderness
    H4057
    of Ziph.
    H2128
    And Saul
    H7586
    sought
    H1245
    him every day,
    H3117
    but God
    H430
    delivered
    H5414
    him not into his hand.
    H3027
  15. 15. And David
    H1732
    saw
    H7200
    that Saul
    H7586
    was come out
    H3318
    to seek
    H1245
    his life:
    H5315
    and David
    H1732
    was in the wilderness
    H4057
    of Ziph
    H2128
    in a wood.
    H2793
  16. 16. And Jonathan
    H3083
    Saul's
    H7586
    son
    H1121
    arose,
    H6965
    and went
    H3212
    to David
    H1732
    into the wood,
    H2793
    and strengthened
    H2388
    his hand
    H3027
    in God.
    H430
  17. 17. And he said
    H559
    unto him, Fear
    H3372
    not: for the hand
    H3027
    of Saul
    H7586
    my father
    H1
    shall not find
    H4672
    thee; and thou shalt be king
    H4427
    over Israel,
    H3478
    and I shall be next
    H4932
    unto thee; and that also Saul
    H7586
    my father
    H1
    knoweth.
    H3045
  18. 18. And they two
    H8147
    made
    H3772
    a covenant
    H1285
    before
    H6440
    the LORD:
    H3068
    and David
    H1732
    abode
    H3427
    in the wood,
    H2793
    and Jonathan
    H3083
    went
    H1980
    to his house.
    H1004
  19. 19. Then came up
    H5927
    the Ziphites
    H2130
    to Saul
    H7586
    to Gibeah,
    H1390
    saying,
    H559
    Doth not David
    H1732
    hide
    H5641
    himself with us in strong holds
    H4679
    in the wood,
    H2793
    in the hill
    H1389
    of Hachilah,
    H2444
    which is on the south
    H3225
    of Jeshimon?
    H3452
  20. 20. Now therefore, O king,
    H4428
    come down
    H3381
    according to all the desire
    H185
    of thy soul
    H5315
    to come down;
    H3381
    and our part shall be to deliver
    H5462
    him into the king's
    H4428
    hand.
    H3027
  21. 21. And Saul
    H7586
    said,
    H559
    Blessed
    H1288
    be ye of the LORD;
    H3068
    for ye have compassion
    H2550
    on me.
  22. 22. Go,
    H3212
    I pray you, prepare
    H3559
    yet, and know
    H3045
    and see
    H7200
    his place
    H4725
    where his haunt
    H7272
    is, and who hath seen
    H7200
    him there: for it is told
    H559
    me that he dealeth very
    H6191
    subtilly.
    H6191
  23. 23. See
    H7200
    therefore, and take knowledge
    H3045
    of all the lurking places
    H4224
    where he hideth
    H2244
    himself, and come ye again
    H7725
    to me with the certainty,
    H3559
    and I will go
    H1980
    with you: and it shall come to pass, if he be
    H3426
    in the land,
    H776
    that I will search
    H2664
    him out throughout all the thousands
    H505
    of Judah.
    H3063
  24. 24. And they arose,
    H6965
    and went
    H3212
    to Ziph
    H2128
    before
    H6440
    Saul:
    H7586
    but David
    H1732
    and his men
    H582
    were in the wilderness
    H4057
    of Maon,
    H4584
    in the plain
    H6160
    on the south
    H3225
    of Jeshimon.
    H3452
  25. 25. Saul
    H7586
    also and his men
    H582
    went
    H3212
    to seek
    H1245
    him. And they told
    H5046
    David:
    H1732
    wherefore he came down
    H3381
    into a rock,
    H5553
    and abode
    H3427
    in the wilderness
    H4057
    of Maon.
    H4584
    And when Saul
    H7586
    heard
    H8085
    that, he pursued
    H7291
    after
    H310
    David
    H1732
    in the wilderness
    H4057
    of Maon.
    H4584
  26. 26. And Saul
    H7586
    went
    H3212
    on this side
    H6654
    of the mountain,
    H2022
    and David
    H1732
    and his men
    H582
    on that side
    H6654
    of the mountain:
    H2022
    and David
    H1732
    made haste
    H2648
    to get away
    H3212
    for fear
    H6440
    of Saul;
    H7586
    for Saul
    H7586
    and his men
    H582
    compassed
    H5849
    David
    H1732
    and his men
    H582
    round about
    H5849
    to take
    H8610
    them.
  27. 27. But there came
    H935
    a messenger
    H4397
    unto Saul,
    H7586
    saying,
    H559
    Haste
    H4116
    thee, and come;
    H3212
    for the Philistines
    H6430
    have invaded
    H6584
    the land.
    H776
  28. 28. Wherefore Saul
    H7586
    returned
    H7725
    from pursuing
    H7291
    after
    H310
    David,
    H1732
    and went
    H3212
    against
    H7125
    the Philistines:
    H6430
    therefore they called
    H7121
    that place
    H4725
    Selahammahlekoth.
    H5555
  29. 29. And David
    H1732
    went up
    H5927
    from thence, and dwelt
    H3427
    in strong holds
    H4679
    at Engedi.
