And DavidH1732 saidH559 in his heart,H3820 I shall nowH6258 perishH5595 oneH259 dayH3117 by the handH3027 of Saul:H7586 there is nothingH369 betterH2896 for me thanH3588 that I should speedilyH4422 escapeH4422 intoH413 the landH776 of the Philistines;H6430 and SaulH7586 shall despairH2976 of me, to seekH1245 me any moreH5750 in anyH3605 coastH1366 of Israel:H3478 so shall I escapeH4422 out of his hand.H3027
And DavidH1732 arose,H6965 and he passedH5674 overH5674 with the sixH8337 hundredH3967 menH376 that were with him to Achish,H397 the sonH1121 of Maoch,H4582 kingH4428 of Gath.H1661
And DavidH1732 dwelledH3427 with AchishH397 at Gath,H1661 he and his men,H582 every manH376 with his household,H1004 even DavidH1732 with his twoH8147 wives,H802 AhinoamH293 the Jezreelitess,H3159 and AbigailH26 the Carmelitess,H3762 Nabal'sH5037 wife.H802
And it was toldH5046 SaulH7586 that DavidH1732 was fledH1272 to Gath:H1661 and he soughtH1245 noH3808 moreH3254 againH3254 for him.
And DavidH1732 saidH559 to Achish,H397 IfH518 I have nowH4994 foundH4672 graceH2580 in your eyes,H5869 let them giveH5414 me a placeH4725 in someH259 townH5892 in the country,H7704 that I may dwellH3427 there:H8033 for whyH4100 should your servantH5650 dwellH3427 in the royalH4467 cityH5892 with you?
Then AchishH397 gaveH5414 him ZiklagH6860 that day:H3117 whyH3651 ZiklagH6860 pertainsH1961 to the kingsH4428 of JudahH3063 to thisH2088 day.H3117
And the timeH4557 H3117 that DavidH1732 dwelledH3427 in the countryH7704 of the PhilistinesH6430 was a fullH3117 year and fourH702 months.H2320
And DavidH1732 and his menH582 wentH5927 up, and invadedH6584 the Geshurites,H1651 and the Gezrites,H1511 and the Amalekites:H6003 for thoseH2007 nations were of oldH5769 the inhabitantsH3427 of the land,H776 as you goH935 to Shur,H7793 even to the landH776 of Egypt.H4714
And DavidH1732 smoteH5221 the land,H776 and left neitherH3808 manH376 nor womanH802 alive,H2421 and tookH3947 away the sheep,H6629 and the oxen,H1241 and the asses,H2543 and the camels,H1581 and the apparel,H899 and returned,H7725 and cameH935 to Achish.H397
And AchishH397 said,H559 WhereH413 have you made a roadH6584 to day?H3117 And DavidH1732 said,H559 AgainstH5921 the southH5045 of Judah,H3063 and againstH5921 the southH5045 of the Jerahmeelites,H3397 and againstH413 the southH5045 of the Kenites.H7017
And DavidH1732 savedH2421 neitherH3808 manH376 nor womanH802 alive,H2421 to bringH935 tidings to Gath,H1661 saying,H559 LestH6435 they should tellH5046 onH5921 us, saying,H559 SoH3541 didH6213 David,H1732 and soH3541 will be his mannerH3541 allH3605 the whileH3117 he dwellsH3427 in the countryH7704 of the Philistines.H6430
And AchishH397 believedH539 David,H1732 saying,H559 He has made his peopleH5971 IsraelH3478 utterly to abhorH887 him; therefore he shall be my servantH5650 for ever.H5769
