1 H6430 Now the Philistines H6908 gathered together [H8799] H4264 all their armies H663 to Aphek H3478 : and the Israelites H2583 pitched [H8802] H5869 by a fountain H3157 which is in Jezreel.
2 H5633 And the lords H6430 of the Philistines H5674 passed on [H8802] H3967 by hundreds H505 , and by thousands H1732 : but David H582 and his men H5674 passed on [H8802] H314 in the rereward H397 with Achish.
3 H559 Then said [H8799] H8269 the princes H6430 of the Philistines H5680 , What do these Hebrews H397 here ? And Achish H559 said [H8799] 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 , which hath been with me these days H8141 , or these years H4672 , and I have found [H8804] H3972 no fault H3117 in him since H5307 he fell [H8800] H3117 unto me unto this day?
4 H8269 And the princes H6430 of the Philistines H7107 were wroth [H8799] H8269 with him; and the princes H6430 of the Philistines H559 said [H8799] H7725 unto him, Make H376 this fellow H7725 return [H8685] H7725 , that he may go again [H8799] H4725 to his place H6485 which thou hast appointed [H8689] H3381 him, and let him not go down [H8799] H4421 with us to battle H4421 , lest in the battle H7854 he be an adversary H7521 to us: for wherewith should he reconcile [H8691] H113 himself unto his master H7218 ? should it not be with the heads H582 of these men?
5 H1732 Is not this David H6030 , of whom they sang [H8799] H4246 one to another in dances H559 , saying [H8800] H7586 , Saul H5221 slew [H8689] H505 his thousands H1732 , and David H7233 his ten thousands?
6 H397 Then Achish H7121 called [H8799] H1732 David H559 , and said [H8799] H3068 unto him, Surely, as the LORD H2416 liveth H3477 , thou hast been upright H3318 , and thy going out [H8800] H935 and thy coming in [H8800] H4264 with me in the host H2896 is good H5869 in my sight H4672 : for I have not found [H8804] H7451 evil H3117 in thee since the day H935 of thy coming [H8800] H3117 unto me unto this day H5633 : nevertheless the lords H2896 favour H5869 thee not.
7 H7725 Wherefore now return [H8798] H3212 , and go [H8798] H7965 in peace H6213 , that thou displease [H8799] H7451 H5869 H5633 not the lords H6430 of the Philistines.
8 H1732 And David H559 said [H8799] H397 unto Achish H6213 , But what have I done [H8804] H4672 ? and what hast thou found [H8804] H5650 in thy servant H3117 so long as H6440 I have been with thee H3117 unto this day H935 , that I may not go [H8799] H3898 fight [H8738] H341 against the enemies [H8802] H113 of my lord H4428 the king?
9 H397 And Achish H6030 answered [H8799] H559 and said [H8799] H1732 to David H3045 , I know [H8804] 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 [H8804] H5927 , He shall not go up [H8799] H4421 with us to the battle.
10 H7925 Wherefore now rise up early [H8685] H1242 in the morning H113 with thy master's H5650 servants H935 that are come [H8804] H7925 with thee: and as soon as ye be up early [H8689] H1242 in the morning H215 , and have light [H8804] H3212 , depart [H8798] .
