1 H7586 And Saul H1696 spake [H8762] H3129 to Jonathan H1121 his son H5650 , and to all his servants H4191 , that they should kill [H8687] H1732 David.
2 H3083 But Jonathan H7586 Saul's H1121 son H2654 delighted [H8804] H3966 much H1732 in David H3083 : and Jonathan H5046 told [H8686] H1732 David H559 , saying [H8800] H7586 , Saul H1 my father H1245 seeketh [H8764] H4191 to kill [H8687] H8104 thee: now therefore, I pray thee, take heed [H8734] H1242 to thyself until the morning H3427 , and abide [H8804] H5643 in a secret H2244 place, and hide [H8738] thyself:
3 H3318 And I will go out [H8799] H5975 and stand [H8804] H3027 beside H1 my father H7704 in the field H1696 where thou art, and I will commune [H8762] H1 with my father H4100 of thee; and what H7200 I see [H8804] H5046 , that I will tell [H8689] thee.
4 H3083 And Jonathan H1696 spake [H8762] H2896 good H1732 of David H7586 unto Saul H1 his father H559 , and said [H8799] H4428 unto him, Let not the king H2398 sin [H8799] H5650 against his servant H1732 , against David H2398 ; because he hath not sinned [H8804] H4639 against thee, and because his works H3966 have been to thee-ward very H2896 good:
5 H7760 For he did put [H8799] H5315 his life H3709 in his hand H5221 , and slew [H8686] H6430 the Philistine H3068 , and the LORD H6213 wrought [H8799] H1419 a great H8668 salvation H3478 for all Israel H7200 : thou sawest [H8804] H8055 it, and didst rejoice [H8799] H2398 : wherefore then wilt thou sin [H8799] H5355 against innocent H1818 blood H4191 , to slay [H8687] H1732 David H2600 without a cause?
6 H7586 And Saul H8085 hearkened [H8799] H6963 unto the voice H3083 of Jonathan H7586 : and Saul H7650 sware [H8735] H3068 , As the LORD H2416 liveth H518 , he shall not H4191 be slain [H8714] .
7 H3083 And Jonathan H7121 called [H8799] H1732 David H3083 , and Jonathan H5046 shewed [H8686] H1697 him all those things H3083 . And Jonathan H935 brought [H8686] H1732 David H7586 to Saul H6440 , and he was in his presence H865 , as in times past H8032 .
8 H4421 And there was war H3254 again [H8686] H1732 : and David H3318 went out [H8799] H3898 , and fought [H8735] H6430 with the Philistines H5221 , and slew [H8686] H1419 them with a great H4347 slaughter H5127 ; and they fled [H8799] H6440 from him.
9 H7451 And the evil H7307 spirit H3068 from the LORD H7586 was upon Saul H3427 , as he sat [H8802] H1004 in his house H2595 with his javelin H3027 in his hand H1732 : and David H5059 played [H8764] H3027 with his hand.
10 H7586 And Saul H1245 sought [H8762] H5221 to smite [H8687] H1732 David H7023 even to the wall H2595 with the javelin H6362 ; but he slipped away [H8799] H7586 out of Saul's H6440 presence H5221 , and he smote [H8686] H2595 the javelin H7023 into the wall H1732 : and David H5127 fled [H8804] H4422 , and escaped [H8735] H3915 that night.
11 H7586 Saul H7971 also sent [H8799] H4397 messengers H1732 unto David's H1004 house H8104 , to watch [H8800] H4191 him, and to slay [H8687] H1242 him in the morning H4324 : and Michal H1732 David's H802 wife H5046 told [H8686] H559 him, saying [H8800] H4422 , If thou save [H8764] H5315 not thy life H3915 to night H4279 , to morrow H4191 thou shalt be slain [H8716] .
12 H4324 So Michal H3381 let H1732 David H3381 down [H8686] H2474 through a window H3212 : and he went [H8799] H1272 , and fled [H8799] H4422 , and escaped [H8735] .
13 H4324 And Michal H3947 took [H8799] H8655 an image H7760 , and laid [H8799] H4296 it in the bed H7760 , and put [H8804] H3523 a pillow H5795 of goats H4763 ' hair for his bolster H3680 , and covered [H8762] H899 it with a cloth.
14 H7586 And when Saul H7971 sent [H8799] H4397 messengers H3947 to take [H8800] H1732 David H559 , she said [H8799] H2470 , He is sick [H8802] .
15 H7586 And Saul H7971 sent [H8799] H4397 the messengers H7200 again to see [H8800] H1732 David H559 , saying [H8800] H5927 , Bring him up [H8685] H4296 to me in the bed H4191 , that I may slay [H8687] him.
16 H4397 And when the messengers H935 were come in [H8799] H8655 , behold, there was an image H4296 in the bed H3523 , with a pillow H5795 of goats H4763 ' hair for his bolster.
17 H7586 And Saul H559 said [H8799] H4324 unto Michal H7411 , Why hast thou deceived me so [H8765] H7971 , and sent away [H8762] H341 mine enemy [H8802] H4422 , that he is escaped [H8735] H4324 ? And Michal H559 answered [H8799] H7586 Saul H559 , He said [H8804] H7971 unto me, Let me go [H8761] H4191 ; why should I kill [H8686] thee?
18 H1732 So David H1272 fled [H8804] H4422 , and escaped [H8735] H935 , and came [H8799] H8050 to Samuel H7414 to Ramah H5046 , and told [H8686] H7586 him all that Saul H6213 had done [H8804] H8050 to him. And he and Samuel H3212 went [H8799] H3427 and dwelt [H8799] H5121 in Naioth.
19 H5046 And it was told [H8714] H7586 Saul H559 , saying [H8800] H1732 , Behold, David H5121 is at Naioth H7414 in Ramah.
20 H7586 And Saul H7971 sent [H8799] H4397 messengers H3947 to take [H8800] H1732 David H7200 : and when they saw [H8799] H3862 the company H5030 of the prophets H5012 prophesying [H8737] H8050 , and Samuel H5975 standing [H8802] H5324 as appointed [H8737] H7307 over them, the Spirit H430 of God H4397 was upon the messengers H7586 of Saul H5012 , and they also prophesied [H8691] .
21 H5046 And when it was told [H8686] H7586 Saul H7971 , he sent [H8799] H312 other H4397 messengers H5012 , and they prophesied [H8691] H7586 likewise. And Saul H7971 sent [H8799] H4397 messengers H3254 again [H8686] H7992 the third H5012 time, and they prophesied [H8691] also.
22 H3212 Then went [H8799] H7414 he also to Ramah H935 , and came [H8799] H1419 to a great H953 well H7906 that is in Sechu H7592 : and he asked [H8799] H559 and said [H8799] H375 , Where H8050 are Samuel H1732 and David H559 ? And one said [H8799] H5121 , Behold, they be at Naioth H7414 in Ramah.
23 H3212 And he went [H8799] H5121 thither to Naioth H7414 in Ramah H7307 : and the Spirit H430 of God H3212 was upon him also, and he went [H8799] H1980 on [H8800] H5012 , and prophesied [H8691] H935 , until he came [H8800] H5121 to Naioth H7414 in Ramah.
24 H6584 And he stripped off [H8799] H899 his clothes H1571 also H5012 , and prophesied [H8691] H6440 before H8050 Samuel H5307 in like manner, and lay down [H8799] H6174 naked H3117 all that day H3915 and all that night H559 . Wherefore they say [H8799] H7586 , Is Saul H5030 also among the prophets?
