1 H6430 Now the Philistines H6908 [H8799] gathered together H4264 all their armies H663 to Aphek: H3478 and the Israelites H2583 [H8802] encamped H5869 by a fountain H3157 which is in Jezreel.
2 H5633 And the lords H6430 of the Philistines H5674 [H8802] passed on H3967 by hundreds, H505 and by thousands: H1732 but David H582 and his men H5674 [H8802] passed on H314 in the rear H397 with Achish.
3 H559 [H8799] Then said H8269 the princes H6430 of the Philistines, H5680 What do these Hebrews H397 here? And Achish H559 [H8799] said H8269 to the princes H6430 of the Philistines, H1732 Is not this David, H5650 the servant H7586 of Saul H4428 the king H3478 of Israel, H3117 who hath been with me these days, H8141 or these years, H4672 [H8804] and I have found H3972 no fault H3117 in him since H5307 [H8800] he fell H3117 to me to this day?
4 H8269 And the princes H6430 of the Philistines H7107 [H8799] were angry H8269 with him; and the princes H6430 of the Philistines H559 [H8799] said H7725 0 to him, Make H376 this fellow H7725 [H8685] return, H7725 [H8799] that he may go again H4725 to his place H6485 [H8689] which thou hast appointed H3381 [H8799] him, and let him not go down H4421 with us to battle, H4421 lest in the battle H7854 he should be an adversary H7521 [H8691] to us: for how should he reconcile H113 himself to his master? H7218 should it not be with the heads H582 of these men?
5 H1732 Is not this David, H6030 [H8799] of whom they sang H4246 one to another in dances, H559 [H8800] saying, H7586 Saul H5221 [H8689] slew H505 his thousands, H1732 and David H7233 his ten thousands?
6 H397 Then Achish H7121 [H8799] called H1732 David, H559 [H8799] and said H3068 to him, Surely, as the LORD H2416 liveth, H3477 thou hast been upright, H3318 [H8800] and thy going out H935 [H8800] and thy coming in H4264 with me in the host H2896 is good H5869 in my sight: H4672 [H8804] for I have not found H7451 evil H3117 in thee from the day H935 [H8800] of thy coming H3117 to me to this day: H5633 nevertheless the lords H2896 favour H5869 thee not.
7 H7725 [H8798] Therefore now return, H3212 [H8798] and go H7965 in peace, H6213 H7451 H5869 [H8799] that thou displease H5633 not the lords H6430 of the Philistines.
8 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H397 to Achish, H6213 [H8804] But what have I done? H4672 [H8804] and what hast thou found H5650 in thy servant H3117 so long as H6440 I have been with thee H3117 to this day, H935 [H8799] that I may not go H3898 [H8738] and fight H341 [H8802] against the enemies H113 of my lord H4428 the king?
9 H397 And Achish H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H1732 to David, H3045 [H8804] I know H2896 that thou art good H5869 in my sight, H4397 as a messenger H430 of God: H8269 however the princes H6430 of the Philistines H559 [H8804] have said, H5927 [H8799] He shall not go up H4421 with us to the battle.
10 H7925 [H8685] Therefore now rise early H1242 in the morning H113 with thy master's H5650 servants H935 [H8804] that are come H7925 [H8689] with thee: and as soon as ye shall have risen early H1242 in the morning, H215 [H8804] and have light, H3212 [H8798] depart.
