1 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G5613 as G390 Saul returned G* G575 from G3693 going after G3588 the G246 Philistines, G2532 that G518 they reported G1473 to him, G3004 saying, G2400 Behold, G* David G1722 is in G3588 the G2048 wilderness G* of En Gedi.
2 G2532 And G2983 he took G3326 with G1438 himself G5140 three G5505 thousand G435 [2men G1588 1chosen] G1537 from out of G3956 all G* Israel, G2532 and G4198 he went G2212 to seek G3588 G* David G2532 and G3588 G435 his men G1473 G2596 by G4383 the face G3588 of the G2339 trap G3588 of the G1643.1 hinds.
3 G2532 And G2064 he came G1909 unto G3588 the G34 herds G3588 of the G4168 flocks G3588 of the ones G1909 upon G3588 the G3598 way. G2532 And G1510.7.3 [2was G1563 3there G4693 1a cave], G2532 and G* Saul G1525 entered G3903 to make preparation. G2532 And G* David G2532 and G3588 G435 his men G1473 G1722 were in G3588 the G4693 cave G2081.2 inside G2521 sitting down G1722 in G1473 it.
4 G2532 And G2036 [4said G3588 1the G435 2men G* 3of David] G4314 to G1473 him, G2400 Behold, G3588 [2the G2250 3day G3778 1this is] G3739 which G2036 the lord spoke G2962 G4314 to G1473 you, G2400 Behold, G1473 I G1325 give G3588 G2190 your enemy G1473 G1519 into G3588 G5495 your hands; G1473 G2532 and G4160 you shall do G1473 to him G5613 as G18 is good G1722 in G3588 G3788 your eyes. G1473 G2532 And G450 David rose up G* G2532 and G851 removed G3588 the G4419 border G3588 of the G1361.4 doubled garment G3588 G* of Saul G2977.1 clandestinely.
5 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G3326 after G3778 these things, G2532 that G3960 [2struck G2588 1David's heart] G* G1473 him, G3754 for G851 he removed G3588 the G4419 border G3588 G1361.4 of his double garment. G1473
6 G2532 And G2036 David said G* G4314 to G3588 G435 his men, G1473 G3365 By no means G1473 be it to me G3844 from G2962 the lord G1487 if G4160 I should do G3588 G4487 this thing G3778 G3588 to G2962 my master, G1473 G3588 to the G5547 anointed one G2962 of the lord, G2018 to bear G5495 my hand G1473 G1909 against G1473 him, G3754 for G5547 [3 the anointed one G2962 4 of the lord G3778 1this G1510.2.3 2is].
7 G2532 And G3982 David persuaded G* G3588 G435 his men G1473 G1722 by G3056 words, G2532 and G3756 he did not G1325 give in G1473 to them G450 to rise up G2532 and G2289 to put Saul to death. G3588 G* G2532 And G450 Saul rose up G* G2532 and G1831 went forth G1519 into G3588 the G3598 way G1537 from G3588 the G4693 cave.
8 G2532 And G450 David rose up G* G3694 after G1473 him G1537 from out of G3588 the G4693 cave. G2532 And G994 David yelled G* G3694 after G* Saul, G3004 saying, G2962 O Master, G935 O king. G2532 And G1914 Saul looked up G* G1519 to G3588 G3694 his rear. G1473 G2532 And G2955 David bowed G* G1909 upon G4383 his face G1473 G1909 unto G3588 the G1093 ground, G2532 and G4352 he did obeisance to G1473 him.
9 G2532 And G2036 David said G* G4314 to G* Saul, G2444 Why G191 do you hearken to G3588 the G3056 words G3588 of the G2992 people, G3004 saying, G2400 Behold, G* David G2212 seeks G3588 G5590 your life? G1473
10 G2400 Behold, G1722 in G3588 G2250 this day G3778 G3708 [2have seen G3588 G3788 1your eyes] G1473 G5613 how G3860 [2delivered G1473 3you G2962 1 the lord] G4594 today G1519 into G5495 my hands G1473 G1722 in G3588 the G4693 cave, G2532 and G3756 I did not G1014 want G615 to kill G1473 you, G2532 and G5339 I spared G1473 you. G2532 And G2036 I said, G3756 I will not G2018 bear G5495 my hand G1473 G1909 against G3588 G2962 my master, G1473 G3754 for G5547 [3 the anointed one G2962 4 of the lord G3778 1this one G1510.2.3 2is].
11 G2532 And, G3962 O my father, G1473 G2532 even G2400 behold, G3588 the G4419 border G3588 G1361.4 of your doubled garment G1473 G1722 in G3588 G5495 my hand. G1473 G1473 I G851 removed G3588 the G4419 border G3588 G1361.4 of your doubled garment, G1473 G2532 and G3756 I did not G615 kill G1473 you. G2532 And G1097 know G2532 and G1492 behold G4594 today! G3754 that G3756 there is no G1510.2.3 G2549 evil G1722 in G3588 G5495 my hand, G1473 G3761 nor G115 annulment, G3761 nor G763 impiety, G2532 and G3756 I have not G264 sinned G1519 against G1473 you. G2532 But G1473 you G1195 bind G3588 G5590 my life G1473 G3588 G2983 to take G1473 it.
12 G2919 May the lord judge G2962 G303.1 between G1473 me G2532 and G1473 you, G2532 and G1556 may [2render justice G1473 3to me G2962 1 the lord] G1537 because G1473 of you. G3588 But G1161 G5495 my hand G1473 G3756 will not G1510.8.3 be G1909 against G1473 you.
13 G2531 As G3004 [4says G3588 G3850 3parable G3588 1the G744 2ancient], G1537 [3from G459 4 the lawless G1831 2shall come forth G4131.1 1Trespass]. G2532 But G3588 G5495 my hand G1473 G3756 will not G1510.8.3 be G1909 against G1473 you.
14 G2532 And G3568 now, G3694 after G5100 whom G1607 do you go forth, G935 O king G3588 G* of Israel? G3694 After G5100 whom G2614 do you pursue? G1473 G3694 After G2965 a dog G2348 having died, G2228 or G3694 after G5589.7 [2flea G1520 1one]?
15 G1096 May the lord be G2962 G1519 for G2923 a judge G2532 and G1348 magistrate G303.1 between G1473 me G2532 and G1473 you. G2532 Yes, G1492 may the lord behold, G2962 G2532 and G2919 may he judge G3588 G2920 my case, G1473 G2532 and G1340.1 may he adjudicate G1473 for me G1537 from out of G5495 your hand. G1473
16 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass, G5613 as G4931 David completed G* G2980 speaking G3588 G4487 these things G3778 G4314 to G* Saul, G2532 that G2036 Saul said, G* G3588 Is G5456 [2voice G1473 1this your], G3778 G5043 son G* David? G2532 And G1869 Saul lifted up G* G3588 G5456 his voice G1473 G2532 and G2799 wept.
17 G2532 And G2036 he said G* G4314 to G* David, G1342 You are righteous G1473 G5228 over G1473 me, G3754 for G1473 you G467 recompensed G1473 to me G18 good things, G1473 but I G1161 G467 recompensed G1473 to you G2556 evils.
18 G2532 And G1473 you G518 have reported G4594 today G3739 what G4160 [2you did G1473 3to me G18 1good things], G5613 as how G608 [2locked G1473 3me G2962 1 the lord] G1519 into G3588 G5495 your hands G1473 G4594 today, G2532 and G3756 you did not G615 kill G1473 me.
19 G2532 And G3754 that G1487 if G2147 anyone may find G5100 G3588 G2190 his enemy G1473 G1722 in G2347 affliction, G2532 and G1599 shall send him forth G1473 G1722 in G3598 [2way G18 1a good], G2532 even G2962 the lord G467 will recompense G1473 to him G18 good things, G2531 as G1473 you G4160 have done G4594 today.
20 G2532 And G3568 now, G2400 behold, G1473 I G1097 know G3754 that G936 in reigning G936 you shall reign, G2532 and G2476 [4shall be established G3588 1the G932 2kingdom G* 3of Israel] G1722 in G5495 your hand. G1473
21 G2532 And G3568 now G3660 swear by an oath G1473 to me G2596 according to G2962 the lord, G2443 that G3361 you should not utterly destroy G1842 G3588 G4690 my seed G1473 G3694 after G1473 me, G2532 and G3361 you should not obliterate G853 G3588 G3686 my name G1473 G1537 from G3588 the G3624 house G3588 G3962 of my father. G1473
