1 Some people from Ziph went to Gibeah to talk with Saul, they said: »David has a hideout on Mount Hachilah near Jeshimon out in the desert.« 2 Saul went to the desert of Ziph. He took three thousand of Israel’s best-trained men to search for David. 3 Saul camped by the road at the hill of Hachilah near Jeshimon. David camped in the desert. He discovered that Saul come to the desert after him. 4 David sent spies to confirm Saul’s arrival. 5 Then David went to the place where Saul camped. David saw the place where Saul and Ner’s son Abner, the commander of the army, were lying. Saul was lying in the camp. The troops were camped around him. 6 David asked Ahimelech the Hittite, and Abishai the brother of Joab: »Who will go to Saul’s camp with me?« »I will,« Abishai answered. 7 David and Abishai entered Saul’s camp at night. They found Saul sleeping in the center of the camp. His spear was stuck in the ground near his head. Abner and the troops were sleeping around him. 8 Abishai said to David: »God put your enemy in your power tonight. Let me plunge his own spear through him and pin him to the ground. I will do it with just one blow. I will not have to strike twice!« 9 But David said: »Do not harm him! Jehovah will certainly punish whoever harms his chosen king.« 10 »By the living God Jehovah,« David declared, »I know that Jehovah will kill Saul, either when his time comes to die a natural death or when he dies in battle. 11 »Jehovah forbid that I should try to harm the one Jehovah anointed to be king. Just take his spear and his water jar and go.« 12 David took the spear and the water jar from beside Saul’s head. Then he and Abishai left. No one saw it or knew what happened. No one woke up. They were all sound asleep, because Jehovah sent a heavy sleep on them all. 13 Then David crossed over to the other side of the valley. He went to the top of the hill a great distance away. 14 David shouted to Saul’s troops and to Abner: »Abner! Can you hear me?« »Who is calling to the king?« Abner asked. 15 David answered, »Abner, are you the greatest man in Israel? Why are you not protecting your master, the king? Someone entered the camp to kill your master. 16 »You failed in your duty, Abner! I swear by the living God Jehovah all of you deserve to die. You have not protected your master, whom Jehovah made king. Look for the king’s spear? Where is the water jar that was near his head?« 17 Saul recognized David’s voice and said: »Is that your voice my son David?« And David said: »It is my voice, my lord the king. 18 He also said: »Why are you my lord pursuing your servant? What have I done? Or what evil is in my hand? 19 »Please let my lord the king listen to the words of his servant. If Jehovah has stirred you up against me, let Him accept an offering. If it is men, cursed are they before Jehovah. They have driven me out today so that I would have no attachment with the inheritance of Jehovah, saying: ‘Go serve other gods.’« 20 »Do not let my blood fall to the ground far from the presence of Jehovah. The king of Israel comes to search for a flea. Yet he hunts me down like a partridge on the mountains.« 21 »My servant David,« Saul said, »I have sinned. Come back. I will not harm you again. You valued my life today. I have acted like a fool. I made a terrible mistake.« 22 David answered: »Here is the king’s spear. Have one of your soldiers come and get it.« 23 »Jehovah put you in my power today. But you are his chosen king. I would not harm you. Jehovah rewards the righteous and faithful. 24 »I valued and saved your life today. I pray that you will value and save my life and that Jehovah will deliver me out of tribulation.« 25 Saul said: »David, my son, I pray that Jehovah will bless you and make you successful!« Saul went back home. David also left.

11 »Jehovah forbid that I should try to harm the one Jehovah anointed to be king. Just take his spear and his water jar and go.«
4 Word soon reached Saul that David fled to Gath. So he stopped hunting for him.
6 That is how Saul, his three sons, and the young man died. All of Saul’s men died that day.
14 David asked: »Why were you not afraid to take it upon yourself to destroy Jehovah’s (YHWH) anointed king?«
16 David said to him: »Your blood is on your head. Your mouth has testified against you. For you admit that you killed Jehovah’s anointed.«
27 Abner arrived in Hebron. Joab took him aside at the gate, as though he wanted to speak privately with him. There he stabbed him in the stomach. So Abner was murdered because he had killed Joab’s brother Asahel.
33 The king sang a funeral song for Abner: »Should Abner die like a godless fool?« 34 »Your hands were not bound. Your feet were not in fetters. You fell as one falls in front of wicked men. And all the people continued to cry for him.« 35 David refused to eat anything the day of the funeral even though people tried to persuade him to eat. David vowed: »May God strike me dead if I taste any food or anything else before the sun goes down.« 36 All the people understood and approved of everything the king did. 37 That day all the people of Israel knew the king was not responsible for killing Ner’s son Abner. 38 The king told his officers: »Do you not know that today a leader, a great man, has fallen in Israel?

14 David lived in fortified camps in the desert. He lived in fortified camps in the mountains of the desert of Ziph. Saul was always searching for him. But God did not let him capture David.
19 Some people from the town of Ziph went to Saul at Gibeah. They said: »Your Majesty, David has a hideout not far from us! It is near Horesh. It is somewhere on Mount Hachilah south of Jeshimon.
23 »Find out exactly the places where he hides. Be sure to bring back a report to me right away. Then I will go with you. If he is still in the region, I will hunt him down, even if I have to search the whole land of Judah.« 24 So they left and returned to Ziph ahead of Saul. David and his men were in the wilderness of Maon. They were in a desolate valley in the southern part of the Judean wilderness. 25 Saul and his men set out to look for David. David heard about it and went to a rocky hill in the wilderness of Maon and stayed there. When Saul heard about this he went after David.
8 Ner’s son Abner, commander of Saul’s army, took Saul’s son Ishbosheth and brought him to Mahanaim. 9 Abner made him king of Gilead, Asher, Jezreel, Ephraim, and Benjamin, that is, all Israel. 10 Saul’s son Ishbosheth was forty years old when he became king of Israel. He ruled for two years. However the tribe of Judah followed David. 11 In Hebron David was king over the tribe of Judah for seven years and six months. 12 One time Abner and the soldiers of Ishbosheth left Mahanaim and went to Gibeon.
18 Zeruiah’s three sons were there: Joab, Abishai, and Asahel. Asahel was as fast on his feet as a wild gazelle.
7 Saul had a concubine named Rizpah. She was Aiah’s daughter. Ishbosheth asked Abner: »Why did you have sex with my father’s concubine?« 8 Ishbosheth’s question made Abner very angry. »Am I a dog that belongs to Judea?« He asked. »Until now I have been faithful to your father Saul’s family, to his relatives and friends. I did not hand you over to David. But now you charge me with a crime because of this woman.
6 David sent a messenger to Joab, saying: »Send me Uriah the Hittite.« So Joab sent Uriah to David.
21 »Who killed Jerubbesheth’s son Abimelech? Did a woman on the wall of Thebez throw a small millstone at him and kill him? Why did you go so close to the wall? If the king asks this, tell him: ‘Your man Uriah the Hittite is also dead.’«
24 »The archers on the wall shot down at your mercenaries. Some of Your Majesty’s mercenaries died. Your man Uriah the Hittite also is dead.«
5 David became very angry with the rich man. He said: »I swear by the living God Jehovah that the man who did this should die!
9 »‘Why have you disobeyed my commands? Why did you do this evil thing? You had Uriah killed in battle! You let the Ammonites kill him. Then you took his wife!
9 Abishai son of Zeruiah said to the king: »Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king? Let me go over there and cut off his head!« 10 »What business is this of yours?« The king said to Abishai and his brother Joab. »If Jehovah told him to curse me who am I to stop him?« 11 David said to Abishai and to all his officials: »My own son is trying to kill me. Why should you be surprised at this Benjaminite? Jehovah told him to curse. Leave him alone and let him curse.
28 »You could have killed anyone in my entire family. Instead you seated me with those who eat at your table. I no longer have the right to complain to my lord the king.«
19 »We are peaceful and faithful Israelites. You seek to destroy a city and a mother in Israel? Why should you swallow up what belongs to Jehovah?’«
16 »In fact, I knew that you would listen and save my son and me from those who want to take the land that God gave us.
5 The king ordered Joab, Abishai, and Ittai: »Treat the young man Absalom gently for my sake.« All the troops heard him give the commanders this order regarding Absalom.
18 Joab’s brother Abishai led the Thirty Warriors. In one battle he killed three hundred men with his spear. He was as famous as the Three Warriors.
39 and Uriah the Hittite, thirty-seven in all.
1 Jehovah became angry at Israel again. He provoked David to turn against Israel. He said: »Go count the people of Israel and Judah.«
32 »O Jehovah, listen in heaven and judge your servants. Punish the guilty one, as he deserves. Justify the one who is innocent.
22 »How will you deceive him?« Jehovah asked. The spirit replied: »I will make all of Ahab's prophets tell lies.« Jehovah said: »Go and deceive him. You will succeed.«
39 Ner was the father of Kish, Kish the father of Saul, and Saul the father of Jonathan, Malki-Shua, Abinadab and Esh-Baal. (Ish-Bosheth)

14 Nehemiah’s prayer: »Keep me in mind, O my God, in connection with this, and do not let the good which I have done for the house of my God and its worship go from your memory completely.«
1 That night the king was unable to get any sleep. He sent for the books of the records and had some one was read them to him.
1 »Is this not the struggle of all humanity? A person’s life is long and hard like that of a hired hand.
5 »Man’s days are determined. You have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed.

O Jehovah, open your ears to hear my plea for pity. 7 O Lord Jehovah [Almighty], the strong one who saves me, you have covered my head in the day of battle. 8 O Jehovah, do not give wicked people what they want.
