Then cameH935 DavidH1732 to NobH5011 to AhimelechH288 the priest:H3548 and AhimelechH288 was afraidH2729 at the meetingH7125 of David,H1732 and saidH559 to him, WhyH4069 are you alone,H905 and noH369 manH376 with you?
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to AhimelechH288 the priest,H3548 The kingH4428 has commandedH6680 me a business,H1697 and has saidH559 to me, Let noH408 manH376 knowH3045 anyH3972 thingH1697 of the businessH1697 about whichH834 I sendH7971 you, and whatH834 I have commandedH6680 you: and I have appointedH3045 my servantsH5288 to suchH492 and suchH492 a place.H4725
Now therefore whatH4100 is underH8478 your hand?H3027 giveH5414 me fiveH2568 loaves of breadH3899 in my hand,H3027 orH176 what there is present.H4672
And the priestH3548 answeredH6030 David,H1732 and said,H559 There is noH369 commonH2455 breadH3899 underH8478 my hand,H3027 but there is hallowedH6944 bread;H3899 ifH518 the youngH5288 men have keptH8104 themselves atH389 leastH389 from women.H802
And DavidH1732 answeredH6030 the priest,H3548 and saidH559 to him, Of a truthH3588 H518 womenH802 have been keptH6113 from us about these threeH8032 days,H8543 since I cameH3318 out, and the vesselsH3627 of the youngH5288 men are holy,H6944 and the bread is in a mannerH1870 common,H2455 yes,H637 thoughH3588 it were sanctifiedH6942 this dayH3117 in the vessel.H3627
So the priestH3548 gaveH5414 him hallowedH6944 bread: for there was noH3808 breadH3899 thereH8033 but the show bread,H3899 H6440 that was takenH5493 from beforeH6440 the LORD,H3068 to putH7760 hotH2527 breadH3899 in the dayH3117 when it was takenH3947 away.
Now a certain manH376 of the servantsH5650 of SaulH7586 was there that day,H3117 detainedH6113 beforeH6440 the LORD;H3068 and his nameH8034 was Doeg,H1673 an Edomite,H130 the most chiefH47 of the herdsmenH7462 that belonged to Saul.H7586
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to Ahimelech,H288 And is there not hereH6311 underH8478 your handH3027 spearH2595 orH176 sword?H2719 for I have neitherH1571 H3808 broughtH3947 my swordH2719 norH1571 my weaponsH3627 with me, becauseH3588 the king'sH4428 businessH1697 requiredH1961 haste.H5169
And the priestH3548 said,H559 The swordH2719 of GoliathH1555 the Philistine,H6430 whomH834 you slewH5221 in the valleyH6010 of Elah,H425 behold,H2009 it is here wrappedH3874 in a clothH8071 behindH310 the ephod:H646 ifH518 you will takeH3947 that, takeH3947 it: for there is noH369 otherH312 saveH2108 that here.H2088 And DavidH1732 said,H559 There is noneH369 like that; giveH5414 it me.
And DavidH1732 arose H6965and fledH1272 that dayH3117 for fearH6440 of Saul,H7586 and wentH935 to AchishH397 the kingH4428 of Gath.H1661
And the servantsH5650 of AchishH397 saidH559 to him, Is not thisH2088 DavidH1732 the kingH4428 of the land?H776 did they not singH6030 one to another of him in dances,H4246 saying,H559 SaulH7586 has slainH5221 his thousands,H505 and DavidH1732 his tenH7233 thousands?H7233
And DavidH1732 laidH7760 up theseH428 wordsH1697 in his heart,H3824 and was soreH3966 afraidH3372 of AchishH397 the kingH4428 of Gath.H1661
And he changedH8138 his behaviorH2940 beforeH5869 them, and feigned himself madH1984 in their hands,H3027 and scrabbledH8427 onH5921 the doorsH1817 of the gate,H8179 and let his spittleH7388 fallH3381 downH3381 on his beard.H2206
Then saidH559 AchishH397 to his servants,H5650 See,H2009 you seeH7200 the manH376 is mad:H7696 whyH4100 then have you broughtH935 him to me?
Have I needH2638 of madH7696 men, that you have broughtH935 thisH2088 fellow to play the madH7696 man in my presence?H5921 shall thisH2088 fellow comeH935 intoH413 my house?H1004
