22:1 David [H1732] therefore departed [H3212] thence, and escaped [H4422] to the cave [H4631] Adullam [H5725] : and when his brethren [H251] and all his father's [H1] house [H1004] heard [H8085] [it], they went down [H3381] thither to him.

22:2 And every one [H376] [that was] in distress [H4689] , and every one [H376] that [was] in debt [H5378] , and every one [H376] [that was] discontented [H4751] [H5315] , gathered [H6908] themselves unto him; and he became a captain [H8269] over them: and there were with him about four [H702] hundred [H3967] men [H376] .(was in debt: Heb. had a creditor)(discontented: Heb. bitter of soul)

22:3 And David [H1732] went [H3212] thence to Mizpeh [H4708] of Moab [H4124] : and he said [H559] unto the king [H4428] of Moab [H4124] , Let my father [H1] and my mother [H517] , I pray thee, come forth [H3318] , [and be] with you, till I know [H3045] what God [H430] will do [H6213] for me.

22:4 And he brought [H5148] them before [H6440] the king [H4428] of Moab [H4124] : and they dwelt [H3427] with him all the while [H3117] that David [H1732] was in the hold [H4686] .

22:5 And the prophet [H5030] Gad [H1410] said [H559] unto David [H1732] , Abide [H3427] not in the hold [H4686] ; depart [H3212] , and get [H935] thee into the land [H776] of Judah [H3063] . Then David [H1732] departed [H3212] , and came [H935] into the forest [H3293] of Hareth [H2802] .

22:6 When Saul [H7586] heard [H8085] that David [H1732] was discovered [H3045] , and the men [H582] that [were] with him, (now Saul [H7586] abode [H3427] in Gibeah [H1390] under a tree [H815] in Ramah [H7414] , having his spear [H2595] in his hand [H3027] , and all his servants [H5650] [were] standing [H5324] about him;)(tree: or, grove in a high place)

22:7 Then Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto his servants [H5650] that stood [H5324] about him, Hear now [H8085] , ye Benjamites [H1145] ; will the son [H1121] of Jesse [H3448] give [H5414] every one of you fields [H7704] and vineyards [H3754] , [and] make [H7760] you all captains [H8269] of thousands [H505] , and captains [H8269] of hundreds [H3967] ;

22:8 That all of you have conspired [H7194] against me, and [there is] none that sheweth [H1540] [H241] me that my son [H1121] hath made a league [H3772] with the son [H1121] of Jesse [H3448] , and [there is] none of you that is sorry [H2470] for me, or sheweth [H1540] [H241] unto me that my son [H1121] hath stirred up [H6965] my servant [H5650] against me, to lie in wait [H693] , as at this day [H3117] ?(sheweth: Heb. uncovereth mine ear)

22:9 Then answered [H6030] Doeg [H1673] the Edomite [H130] , which was set [H5324] over the servants [H5650] of Saul [H7586] , and said [H559] , I saw [H7200] the son [H1121] of Jesse [H3448] coming [H935] to Nob [H5011] , to Ahimelech [H288] the son [H1121] of Ahitub [H285] .

22:10 And he enquired [H7592] of the LORD [H3068] for him, and gave [H5414] him victuals [H6720] , and gave [H5414] him the sword [H2719] of Goliath [H1555] the Philistine [H6430] .

22:11 Then the king [H4428] sent [H7971] to call [H7121] Ahimelech [H288] the priest [H3548] , the son [H1121] of Ahitub [H285] , and all his father's [H1] house [H1004] , the priests [H3548] that [were] in Nob [H5011] : and they came [H935] all of them to the king [H4428] .

22:12 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , Hear [H8085] now, thou son [H1121] of Ahitub [H285] . And he answered [H559] , Here I [am], my lord [H113] .(Here: Heb. Behold me)

22:13 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto him, Why have ye conspired [H7194] against me, thou and the son [H1121] of Jesse [H3448] , in that thou hast given [H5414] him bread [H3899] , and a sword [H2719] , and hast enquired [H7592] of God [H430] for him, that he should rise [H6965] against me, to lie in wait [H693] , as at this day [H3117] ?

22:14 Then Ahimelech [H288] answered [H6030] the king [H4428] , and said [H559] , And who [is so] faithful [H539] among all thy servants [H5650] as David [H1732] , which is the king's [H4428] son in law [H2860] , and goeth [H5493] at thy bidding [H4928] , and is honourable [H3513] in thine house [H1004] ?

22:15 Did I then [H3117] begin [H2490] to enquire [H7592] of God [H430] for him? be it far from me [H2486] : let not the king [H4428] impute [H7760] [any] thing [H1697] unto his servant [H5650] , [nor] to all the house [H1004] of my father [H1] : for thy servant [H5650] knew [H3045] nothing [H1697] of all this, less [H6996] or more [H1419] .(less: Heb. little or great)

22:16 And the king [H4428] said [H559] , Thou shalt surely [H4191] die [H4191] , Ahimelech [H288] , thou, and all thy father's [H1] house [H1004] .

22:17 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto the footmen [H7323] that stood [H5324] about him, Turn [H5437] , and slay [H4191] the priests [H3548] of the LORD [H3068] ; because their hand [H3027] also [is] with David [H1732] , and because they knew [H3045] when he fled [H1272] , and did not shew [H1540] [H241] it to me. But the servants [H5650] of the king [H4428] would [H14] not put forth [H7971] their hand [H3027] to fall [H6293] upon the priests [H3548] of the LORD [H3068] .(footmen: or, guard: Heb. runners)

22:18 And the king [H4428] said [H559] to Doeg [H1673] , Turn [H5437] thou, and fall [H6293] upon the priests [H3548] . And Doeg [H1673] the Edomite [H130] turned [H5437] , and he fell [H6293] upon the priests [H3548] , and slew [H4191] on that day [H3117] fourscore [H8084] and five [H2568] persons [H376] that did wear [H5375] a linen [H906] ephod [H646] .

22:19 And Nob [H5011] , the city [H5892] of the priests [H3548] , smote [H5221] he with the edge [H6310] of the sword [H2719] , both men [H376] and women [H802] , children [H5768] and sucklings [H3243] , and oxen [H7794] , and asses [H2543] , and sheep [H7716] , with the edge [H6310] of the sword [H2719] .

22:20 And one [H259] of the sons [H1121] of Ahimelech [H288] the son [H1121] of Ahitub [H285] , named [H8034] Abiathar [H54] , escaped [H4422] , and fled [H1272] after [H310] David [H1732] .

22:21 And Abiathar [H54] shewed [H5046] David [H1732] that Saul [H7586] had slain [H2026] the LORD'S [H3068] priests [H3548] .

22:22 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto Abiathar [H54] , I knew [H3045] [it] that day [H3117] , when Doeg [H1673] the Edomite [H130] [was] there, that he would surely [H5046] tell [H5046] Saul [H7586] : I have occasioned [H5437] [the death] of all the persons [H5315] of thy father's [H1] house [H1004] .

22:23 Abide [H3427] thou with me, fear [H3372] not: for he that seeketh [H1245] my life [H5315] seeketh [H1245] thy life [H5315] : but with me thou [shalt be] in safeguard [H4931] .
