1 Samuel 27

  1 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H3820 in his heart, H5595 [H8735] I shall now perish H259 one H3117 day H3027 by the hand H7586 of Saul: H2896 there is nothing better H3588 for me than that H4422 [H8736] I should speedily H4422 [H8735] escape H776 into the land H6430 of the Philistines; H7586 and Saul H2976 [H8738] shall despair H1245 [H8763] of me, to seek H1366 me any more in any part H3478 of Israel: H4422 [H8738] so shall I escape H3027 from his hand.
  2 H1732 And David H6965 [H8799] arose, H5674 [H8799] and he passed over H8337 with the six H3967 hundred H376 men H397 that were with him to Achish, H1121 the son H4582 of Maoch, H4428 king H1661 of Gath.
  3 H1732 And David H3427 [H8799] dwelt H397 with Achish H1661 at Gath, H582 he and his men, H376 every man H1004 with his household, H1732 even David H8147 with his two H802 wives, H293 Ahinoam H3159 the Jezreelitess, H26 and Abigail H3762 the Carmelitess, H5037 Nabal's H802 wife.
  4 H5046 [H8714] And it was told H7586 to Saul H1732 that David H1272 [H8804] had fled H1661 to Gath: H1245 [H8763] and he sought H3254 H3254 [H8804] no more again for him.
  5 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H397 to Achish, H4672 [H8804] If I have now found H2580 grace H5869 in thine eyes, H5414 [H8799] let them give H4725 me a place H259 in some H5892 town H7704 in the country, H3427 [H8799] that I may dwell H5650 there: for why should thy servant H3427 [H8799] dwell H4467 in the royal H5892 city with thee?
  6 H397 Then Achish H5414 [H8799] gave H6860 him Ziklag H3117 that day: H6860 therefore Ziklag H4428 pertaineth to the kings H3063 of Judah H3117 to this day.
  7 H4557 H3117 And the time H1732 that David H3427 [H8804] dwelt H7704 in the country H6430 of the Philistines H3117 was a full year H702 and four H2320 months.
  8 H1732 And David H582 and his men H5927 [H8799] went up, H6584 [H8799] and invaded H1651 the Geshurites, H1511 and the Gezrites, H6003 and the Amalekites: H2007 for those H5769 nations were of old H3427 [H8802] the inhabitants H776 of the land, H935 [H8800] as thou goest H7793 to Shur, H776 even to the land H4714 of Egypt.
  9 H1732 And David H5221 [H8689] smote H776 the land, H376 and left neither man H802 nor woman H2421 [H8762] alive, H3947 [H8804] and took away H6629 the sheep, H1241 and the oxen, H2543 and the donkeys, H1581 and the camels, H899 and the apparel, H7725 [H8799] and returned, H935 [H8799] and came H397 to Achish.
  10 H397 And Achish H559 [H8799] said, H408 Where H6584 [H8804] have ye plundered H3117 to day? H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said, H5045 Against the south H3063 of Judah, H5045 and against the south H3397 of the Jerahmeelites, H5045 and against the south H7017 of the Kenites.
  11 H1732 And David H2421 [H8762] saved H376 neither man H802 nor woman H2421 [H8762] alive, H935 [H8687] to bring H1661 tidings to Gath, H559 [H8800] saying, H5046 [H8686] Lest they should inform H559 [H8800] against us, saying, H6213 [H8804] So did H1732 David, H4941 and so will be his manner H3117 all the while H3427 [H8804] he dwelleth H7704 in the country H6430 of the Philistines.
  12 H397 And Achish H539 [H8686] believed H1732 David, H559 [H8800] saying, H887 [H8687] He hath made himself utterly H887 [H8689] odious H5971 to his people H3478 Israel; H5650 therefore he shall be my servant H5769 to the age.
