1 H6430 Now the Philistines H6908 gathered together H4264 all their hosts H663 to Aphek: H3478 and the Israelites H2583 encamped H5869 by the fountain H3157 which is in Jezreel.
2 H5633 And the lords H6430 of the Philistines H5674 passed on H3967 by hundreds, H505 and by thousands; H1732 and David H582 and his men H5674 passed on H314 in the rearward H397 with Achish.
3 H559 Then said H8269 the princes H6430 of the Philistines, H5680 What do these Hebrews H397 here? And Achish H559 said H8269 unto the princes H6430 of the Philistines, H1732 Is not this David, H5650 the servant H7586 of Saul H4428 the king H3478 of Israel, H3117 who hath been with me these days, H8141 or rather these years, H4672 and I have found H3972 no fault H3117 in him since H5307 he fell H3117 away unto me unto this day?
4 H8269 But he princes H6430 of the Philistines H7107 were wroth H8269 with him; and the princes H6430 of the Philistines H559 said H7725 unto him, Make H376 the man H7725 return, H7725 that he may go back H4725 to his place H6485 where thou hast appointed H3381 him, and let him not go down H4421 with us to battle, H4421 lest in the battle H7854 he become an adversary H7521 to us: for wherewith should this fellow reconcile H113 himself unto his lord? H7218 should it not be with the heads H582 of these men?
5 H1732 Is not this David, H6030 of whom they sang H4246 one to another in dances, H559 saying, H7586 Saul H5221 hath slain H505 his thousands, H1732 And David H505 his ten thousands?
6 H397 Then Achish H7121 called H1732 David, H559 and said H3068 unto him, As Jehovah H2416 liveth, H3477 thou hast been upright, H3318 and thy going out H935 and thy coming in H4264 with me in the host H2896 is good H5869 in my sight; H4672 for I have not found H7451 evil H3117 in thee since the day H935 of thy coming H3117 unto me unto this day: H5633 nevertheless the lords H2896 favor H5869 thee not.
7 H7725 Wherefore now return, H3212 and go H7965 in peace, H7451 that thou displease H5633 not the lords H6430 of the Philistines.
8 H1732 And David H559 said H397 unto Achish, H6213 But what have I done? H4672 and what hast thou found H5650 in thy servant H3117 so long as H6440 I have been before thee H3117 unto this day, H935 that I may not go H3898 and 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 thou art good H5869 in my sight, H4397 as an angel H430 of God: H8269 notwithstanding the princes H6430 of the Philistines H559 have said, H5927 He shall not go up H4421 with us to the battle.
10 H7925 Wherefore now rise up early H1242 in the morning H5650 with the servants H113 of thy lord H935 that are come H7925 with thee; and as soon as ye are up early H1242 in the morning, H215 and have light, H3212 depart.
