23:1 Then they told [H5046] David [H1732] , saying [H559] , Behold, the Philistines [H6430] fight [H3898] against Keilah [H7084] , and they rob [H8154] the threshingfloors [H1637] .

23:2 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] .

23:3 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] ?

23:4 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] .

23:5 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] .

23:6 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] .

23:7 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] .

23:8 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] .

23:9 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] .

23:10 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.

23:11 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] .

23:12 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] .(deliver: Heb. shut up)

23:13 Then David [H1732] and his men [H582] , [which were] about six [H8337] hundred [H3967] [H376] , 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] .

23:14 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] .

23:15 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] .

23:16 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] .

23:17 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] .

23:18 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] .

23:19 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] ?(on: Heb. on the right hand)(Jeshimon: or, the wilderness)

23:20 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] .

23:21 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] , Blessed [H1288] [be] ye of the LORD [H3068] ; for ye have compassion [H2550] on me.

23:22 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] .(haunt: Heb. foot shall be)

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] .

23:24 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] .

23:25 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] .(into: or, from the rock)

23:26 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.

23:27 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] .(invaded: Heb. spread themselves upon, etc)

23:28 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] .(Selahammahlekoth: that is, The rock of divisions)

23:29 And David [H1732] went up [H5927] from thence, and dwelt [H3427] in strong holds [H4679] at Engedi [H5872] .
