Chapter 24

  1. 1. And it came to pass, when Saul
    H7586
    was returned
    H7725
    from following
    H310
    the Philistines,
    H6430
    that it was told
    H5046
    him, saying,
    H559
    Behold, David
    H1732
    is in the wilderness
    H4057
    of Engedi.
    H5872
  2. 2. Then Saul
    H7586
    took
    H3947
    three
    H7969
    thousand
    H505
    chosen
    H977
    men
    H376
    out of all Israel,
    H3478
    and went
    H3212
    to seek
    H1245
    David
    H1732
    and his men
    H582
    upon
    H6440
    the rocks
    H6697
    of the wild goats.
    H3277
  3. 3. And he came
    H935
    to the sheepcotes
    H6629
    by
    H1448
    the way,
    H1870
    where was a cave;
    H4631
    and Saul
    H7586
    went in
    H935
    to cover
    H5526
    his feet:
    H7272
    and David
    H1732
    and his men
    H582
    remained
    H3427
    in the sides
    H3411
    of the cave.
    H4631
  4. 4. And the men
    H582
    of David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    unto him, Behold the day
    H3117
    of which the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto thee, Behold, I will deliver
    H5414
    thine enemy
    H341
    into thine hand,
    H3027
    that thou mayest do
    H6213
    to him as it shall seem good
    H3190
    unto thee.
    H5869
    Then David
    H1732
    arose,
    H6965
    and cut off
    H3772
    the skirt
    H3671
    of Saul's
    H7586
    robe
    H4598
    privily.
    H3909
  5. 5. And it came to pass afterward,
    H310
    that David's
    H1732
    heart
    H3820
    smote
    H5221
    him, because he had cut off
    H3772
    Saul's
    H7586
    skirt.
    H3671
  6. 6. And he said
    H559
    unto his men,
    H582
    The LORD
    H3068
    forbid
    H2486
    that I should do
    H6213
    this thing
    H1697
    unto my master,
    H113
    the LORD'S
    H3068
    anointed,
    H4899
    to stretch forth
    H7971
    mine hand
    H3027
    against him, seeing he is the anointed
    H4899
    of the LORD.
    H3068
  7. 7. So David
    H1732
    stayed
    H8156
    his servants
    H582
    with these words,
    H1697
    and suffered
    H5414
    them not to rise
    H6965
    against Saul.
    H7586
    But Saul
    H7586
    rose up
    H6965
    out of the cave,
    H4631
    and went
    H3212
    on his way.
    H1870
  8. 8. David
    H1732
    also arose
    H6965
    afterward, and went out
    H3318
    of the cave,
    H4631
    and cried
    H7121
    after
    H310
    Saul,
    H7586
    saying,
    H559
    My lord
    H113
    the king.
    H4428
    And when Saul
    H7586
    looked
    H5027
    behind
    H310
    him, David
    H1732
    stooped
    H6915
    with his face
    H639
    to the earth,
    H776
    and bowed
    H7812
    himself.
  9. 9. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    to Saul,
    H7586
    Wherefore hearest
    H8085
    thou men's
    H120
    words,
    H1697
    saying,
    H559
    Behold, David
    H1732
    seeketh
    H1245
    thy hurt?
    H7451
  10. 10. Behold, this day
    H3117
    thine eyes
    H5869
    have seen
    H7200
    how that the LORD
    H3068
    had delivered
    H5414
    thee to day
    H3117
    into mine hand
    H3027
    in the cave:
    H4631
    and some bade
    H559
    me kill
    H2026
    thee: but mine eye spared
    H2347
    thee; and I said,
    H559
    I will not put forth
    H7971
    mine hand
    H3027
    against my lord;
    H113
    for he is the LORD'S
    H3068
    anointed.
    H4899
  11. 11. Moreover, my father,
    H1
    see,
    H7200
    yea, see
    H7200
    the skirt
    H3671
    of thy robe
    H4598
    in my hand:
    H3027
    for in that I cut off
    H3772
    the skirt
    H3671
    of thy robe,
    H4598
    and killed
    H2026
    thee not, know
    H3045
    thou and see
    H7200
    that there is neither evil
    H7451
    nor transgression
    H6588
    in mine hand,
    H3027
    and I have not sinned
    H2398
    against thee; yet thou huntest
    H6658
    my soul
    H5315
    to take
    H3947
    it.
  12. 12. The LORD
    H3068
    judge
    H8199
    between me and thee, and the LORD
    H3068
    avenge
    H5358
    me of thee: but mine hand
    H3027
    shall not be upon thee.
  13. 13. As saith
    H559
    the proverb
    H4912
    of the ancients,
    H6931
    Wickedness
    H7562
    proceedeth
    H3318
    from the wicked:
    H7563
    but mine hand
    H3027
    shall not be upon thee.
  14. 14. After
    H310
    whom is the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    come out?
    H3318
    after
    H310
    whom dost thou pursue?
    H7291
    after
    H310
    a dead
    H4191
    dog,
    H3611
    after
    H310
    a
    H259
    flea.
    H6550
  15. 15. The LORD
    H3068
    therefore be judge,
    H1781
    and judge
    H8199
    between me and thee, and see,
    H7200
    and plead
    H7378
    my cause,
    H7379
    and deliver
    H8199
    me out of thine hand.
    H3027
  16. 16. And it came to pass, when David
    H1732
    had made an end
    H3615
    of speaking
    H1696
    these words
    H1697
    unto Saul,
    H7586
    that Saul
    H7586
    said,
    H559
    Is this thy voice,
    H6963
    my son
    H1121
    David?
    H1732
    And Saul
    H7586
    lifted up
    H5375
    his voice,
    H6963
    and wept.
    H1058
  17. 17. And he said
    H559
    to David,
    H1732
    Thou art more righteous
    H6662
    than I: for thou hast rewarded
    H1580
    me good,
    H2896
    whereas I have rewarded
    H1580
    thee evil.
    H7451
  18. 18. And thou hast shewed
    H5046
    this day
    H3117
    how that thou hast dealt
    H6213
    well
    H2896
    with me: forasmuch as when the LORD
    H3068
    had delivered
    H5462
    me into thine hand,
    H3027
    thou killedst
    H2026
    me not.
  19. 19. For if a man
    H376
    find
    H4672
    his enemy,
    H341
    will he let him go
    H7971
    well
    H2896
    away?
    H1870
    wherefore the LORD
    H3068
    reward
    H7999
    thee good
    H2896
    for that thou hast done
    H6213
    unto me this day.
    H3117
  20. 20. And now, behold, I know well
    H3045
    that thou shalt surely
    H4427
    be king,
    H4427
    and that the kingdom
    H4467
    of Israel
    H3478
    shall be established
    H6965
    in thine hand.
    H3027
  21. 21. Swear
    H7650
    now therefore unto me by the LORD,
    H3068
    that thou wilt not
    H518
    cut off
    H3772
    my seed
    H2233
    after
    H310
    me, and that thou wilt not destroy
    H8045
    my name
    H8034
    out of my father's
    H1
    house.
    H1004
  22. 22. And David
    H1732
    sware
    H7650
    unto Saul.
    H7586
    And Saul
    H7586
    went
    H3212
    home;
    H1004
    but David
    H1732
    and his men
    H582
    gat them up
    H5927
    unto the hold.
    H4686
