1 H6430 Now the Philistines H6908 gathered H3605 together all H4264 their armies H663 to Aphek: H3478 and the Israelites H2583 pitched H5869 by a fountain H834 which H3157 is in Jezreel.
2 H5633 And the lords H6430 of the Philistines H5674 passed H3967 on by hundreds, H505 and by thousands: H1732 but David H582 and his men H5674 passed H314 on in the rear guard H397 with Achish.
3 H559 Then said H8269 the princes H6430 of the Philistines, H4100 What H428 do these H5680 Hebrews H397 here? And Achish H559 said H8269 to the princes H6430 of the Philistines, H2088 Is not this H1732 David, H5650 the servant H7586 of Saul H4428 the king H3478 of Israel, H834 which H1961 has been H2088 with me these H3117 days, H176 or H2088 these H8141 years, H4672 and I have found H3808 no H3972 fault H5307 in him since he fell H2088 to me to this H3117 day?
4 H8269 And the princes H6430 of the Philistines H7107 were wroth H8269 with him; and the princes H6430 of the Philistines H559 said H376 to him, Make this fellow H7725 return, H7725 that he may go H7725 again H4725 to his place H834 which H6485 you have appointed H3381 him, and let him not go H3381 down H4421 with us to battle, H3808 lest H4421 in the battle H7854 he be an adversary H4100 to us: for with which H7521 should he reconcile H113 himself to his master? H7218 should it not be with the heads H1992 of these H582 men?
5 H2088 Is not this H1732 David, H834 of whom H6030 they sang H4246 one to another in dances, H559 saying, H7586 Saul H5221 slew H505 his thousands, H1732 and David H7233 his ten H7233 thousands?
6 H397 Then Achish H7121 called H1732 David, H559 and said H3068 to him, Surely, as the LORD H2416 lives, H3477 you have been upright, H3318 and your going H935 out and your coming H4264 in with me in the host H2896 is good H5869 in my sight: H4672 for I have not found H7451 evil H3117 in you since the day H935 of your coming H2088 to me to this H3117 day: H5633 nevertheless the lords H2896 favor you not.
7 H6258 Why now H7725 return, H3212 and go H7965 in peace, H6213 that you displease H5633 not the lords H6430 of the Philistines.
8 H1732 And David H559 said H397 to Achish, H4100 But what H6213 have I done? H4100 and what H4672 have you found H5650 in your servant H3117 so long H1961 as I have been H2088 with you to this H3117 day, H935 that I may not go H3898 fight H341 against the enemies H113 of my lord H4428 the king?
9 H397 And Achish H6030 answered H559 and said H1732 to David, H3045 I know H2896 that you are good H5869 in my sight, H430 as an angel of God: H389 notwithstanding H8269 the princes H6430 of the Philistines H559 have said, H5927 He shall not go H4421 up with us to the battle.
10 H6258 Why now H7925 rise H7925 up early H1242 in the morning H113 with your master’s H5650 servants H935 that are come H7925 with you: and as soon as you be up early H1242 in the morning, H216 and have light, H3212 depart.
