1 Samuel 24:4-7

NSB(i) 4 They whispered to David: »Jehovah told you he was going to let you defeat your enemies and do whatever you want with them. This must be the day Jehovah was talking about.« David sneaked over and cut off a small piece of Saul’s robe and Saul did not notice. 5 Later David’s conscience bothered him because he had cut off the edge of Saul’s robe. 6 He told his men: »Stop talking foolishly. We are not going to attack Saul. He is my king. I pray that Jehovah will keep me from doing anything to harm his chosen king.« 7 David stopped his men by saying this to them. He did not let them attack Saul. Saul left the cave and went out onto the road.
