1 Samuel 20:13

1 Samuel 20:27

1 Samuel 20:29
And he said, "Please let me go; for our family has a sacrifice in the city; and my brother, he has commanded me [to be there], and now, if I have found favor in your eyes, please let me get away and see my brethren. Therefore he does not come to the king's table."
1 Samuel 20:30
Then Saul's anger was kindled against Jonathan, and he said to him, "You son of the perverse rebellious [woman], do I not know that you have chosen the son of Jesse to your own confusion, and to the confusion of your mother's nakedness?

1 Samuel 21:5
And David answered the priest and said to him, "Of a truth women [have been] kept from us about these three days, since I came out, and the vessels of the young men are holy, and [the bread is] in a manner common, indeed, though it were sanctified this day in the vessel."
1 Samuel 21:6
So the priest gave him holy [bread], *Matthew 12:3, *Luke 6:3 - 4 for there was no bread there but the shewbread that was taken from before the Lord, to put hot bread in the day when it was taken away.
1 Samuel 21:8
And David said to Ahimelech, "And is there not here under your hand spear or sword? For I have neither brought my sword or my weapons with me, because the king's business required haste."
1 Samuel 21:9
And the priest said, "The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you slew in the valley of Elah, behold, it [is here] wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod, if you will take that, take [it], for [there is] no other except that here." And David said, "[There are] none like that; give it to me."
1 Samuel 21:10
And David arose, and fled that day for fear of Saul, *Book of Enoch 89:47 and went to Achish, the king of Gath.

1 Samuel 22:8
That all of you have conspired against me, and [there are] none who show me that my son has made a league with the son of Jesse, and [there are] none of you who are sorry for me, or show to me that my son has stirred up my servant against me, to lie in wait, as at this day?"
1 Samuel 22:13
And Saul said to him, "Why have you conspired against me, you and the son of Jesse, in that you have given him bread, and a sword, and have inquired of God for him, that he should rise against me, to lie in wait, as at this day?"
1 Samuel 22:14
Then Ahimelech answered the king, and said, "And who [is so] faithful among all your servants as David, who is the king's son-in-law, and goes at your bidding, and is honorable in your house?
1 Samuel 22:15
Did I then begin to inquire of God for him? It is far from me, do not let the king impute [any] thing to his servant, [nor] to all the house of my father, for your servant knew nothing of all this, less or more."
1 Samuel 22:17
And the king said to the footmen who stood about him, "Turn, and slay the priests of the Lord; because their hand [is] also with David, and because they knew when he fled, and did not show it to me." But the servants of the king would not put forth their hand to fall upon the priests of the Lord.
1 Samuel 22:18
And the king said to Doeg, "Turn, and fall upon the priests." And Doeg the Edomite turned, and he fell upon the priests, and slew eighty five persons on that day who wore a linen ephod.
1 Samuel 22:22
And David said to Abiathar, "I knew [it] that day, when Doeg the Edomite [was] there, that he would surely tell Saul, I have occasioned [the death] of all the persons of your father's house.
1 Samuel 23:11
Will the men of Keilah deliver me up into his hand? Will Saul come down, as Your servant has heard? O Lord God of Israel, I beseech You, tell Your servant." And the Lord said, "He will come down."
1 Samuel 23:13
Then David and his men, [who were] about six hundred, arose and departed out of Keilah, and went wherever they could go. And it was told to Saul that David had escaped from Keilah; and he forbare to go forth.
1 Samuel 23:17
And he said to him, "Do not fear, for the hand of Saul, my father, will not find you; and you will be king over Israel, and I will be next to you; and also that Saul, my father, knows."
1 Samuel 23:23
See therefore, and take knowledge of all the lurking places where he hides himself, and come again to me with the certainty, and I will go with you, and it will come to pass, if he is in the land, that I will search him out throughout all the thousands of Judah."
1 Samuel 23:25

1 Samuel 23:26
And Saul went on this side of the mountain, and David and his men on that side of the mountain, and David hastened to get away for fear of Saul; for Saul and his men encompassed David and his men around to take them.
1 Samuel 24:4
And the men of David said to him, "Behold the day of which the Lord said to you, 'Behold, I will deliver your enemy into your hand, that you may do to him as it will seem good to you.'" Then David arose, and cut off the skirt of Saul's robe privily.
1 Samuel 24:8
David also arose afterward, and went out of the cave, and cried after Saul, saying, "My lord the king." And when Saul looked behind him, David stooped with his face to the earth, and prostrated.
1 Samuel 24:10
Behold, your eyes have seen this day how that the Lord had delivered you today into my hand in the cave, and [some] bade [me] to kill you, but [my eye] spared you; and I said, 'I will not put forth my hand against my lord; for he [is] the Lord's anointed.'
1 Samuel 24:11
Moreover, my father, see, indeed, see the skirt of your robe in my hand, for I cut off the skirt of your robe, and did not kill you, know and see that [there is] neither evil nor transgression in my hand, and I have not sinned against you; yet you hunt my soul to take it.
1 Samuel 25:2
And [there was] a man in Maon, whose possessions [were] in Carmel; and the man [was] very great, and he had three thousand sheep, and a thousand goats, and he was shearing his sheep in Carmel.
1 Samuel 25:3
Now the name of the man [was] Nabal; and the name of his wife, Abigail, and [she was] a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance, but the man [was] churlish and evil in his doings; and he [was] of the house of Caleb.
1 Samuel 25:8
Ask your young men, and they will show you. Therefore let the young men find favor in your eyes, for we come in a good day, please give whatever comes to your hand to your servants, and to your son David.'"
1 Samuel 25:13
And David said to his men, "Gird on, every man his sword." And they girded on, every man his sword; and David also girded on his sword, and about four hundred men went up after David; and two hundred abode by the gear.
1 Samuel 25:17
Now therefore know and consider what you will do; for evil is determined against our master, and against all his household, for he [is such] a son of Belial, that [a man] cannot speak to him."
1 Samuel 25:18
Then Abigail hastened, and took two hundred loaves, and two bottles of wine, and five sheep readily dressed, and five measures of parched [corn], and a hundred clusters of raisins, and two hundred cakes of figs, and laid [them] on donkeys.
1 Samuel 25:21
Now David had said, "Surely in vain I have kept all that this [fellow] has in the wilderness, so that nothing was missed of all that [pertained] to him, and he has requited me evil for good.
1 Samuel 25:25
Please do not let my lord regard this man of Belial, [even] Nabal, for as his name [is], so he [is]; Nabal [is] his name, and folly [is] with him, but I your handmaid did not see the young men of my lord, whom you sent.
1 Samuel 25:26
Now therefore, my lord, [as] the Lord lives, and [as] your soul lives, seeing the Lord has withheld you from coming to [shed] blood, and from avenging yourself with your own hand, now let your enemies, and those who seek evil to my lord, be as Nabal.
1 Samuel 25:28
Please forgive the trespass of your handmaid, for the Lord will certainly make my lord a sure house; because my lord fights the battles of the Lord, and evil has not been found in you [all] your days.
1 Samuel 25:29
Yet a man has risen to pursue you, and to seek your soul, but the soul of my lord will be bound in the bundle of life with the Lord your God; and the souls of your enemies, He will sling them out, [as out] of the middle of a sling.
1 Samuel 25:31
That this will not be grief to you, nor offence of heart to my lord, either that you have shed blood causeless, or that my lord has avenged himself, but when the Lord will have dealt well with my lord, then remember your handmaid."
1 Samuel 25:34
For in very deed, [as] the Lord God of Israel lives, who has kept me back from hurting you, except you had hastened and come to meet me, surely there had not been left to Nabal by the morning light, any who urinate against the wall."
1 Samuel 25:36
And Abigail came to Nabal; and, behold, he held a feast in his house, like the feast of a king; and Nabal's heart [was] good within him, for he [was] very drunk, therefore she told him nothing, less or more, until the morning light.
1 Samuel 25:39
And when David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, "Blessed [is] the Lord, who has pleaded the cause of my reproach from the hand of Nabal, and has kept His servant from evil, for the Lord has returned the wickedness of Nabal upon his own head." And David sent and communed with Abigail, to take her to him to wife.
1 Samuel 25:43
David also took Ahinoam of Jezreel; and they were also both his wives. *4:3
1 Samuel 26:5
And David arose, and came to the place where Saul had pitched, and David beheld the place where Saul lay, and Abner, the son of Ner, the captain of his host; and Saul lay in the trench, and the people pitched around him.
1 Samuel 26:6
Then David answered and said to Ahimelech the Hittite, and to Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, brother to Joab, saying, "Who will go down with me to Saul to the camp?" And Abishai said, "I will go down with you."
1 Samuel 26:7
So David and Abishai came to the people by night, and, behold, Saul lay sleeping within the trench, and his spear stuck in the ground at his bolster, but Abner and the people lay around him.
1 Samuel 26:8
Then Abishai said to David, "God has delivered your enemy into your hand this day, now therefore, please let me strike him with the spear even to the earth at once, and I will not [strike] him the second time."
1 Samuel 26:12
So David took the spear and the cruse of water from Saul's bolster; and they got away, and no man saw [it], nor knew [it], neither awakened, for they [were] all asleep; because a deep sleep from the Lord had fallen upon them.
1 Samuel 26:15
And David said to Abner, "[Are] you not a [valiant] man? And who [is] like you in Israel? Why then have you not kept your lord the king? For one of the people came in to destroy the king your lord.
1 Samuel 26:16
This thing [is] not good that you have done. [As] the Lord lives, you [are] worthy to die, because you have not kept your master, the Lord's anointed. And now see where the king's spear [is], and the cruse of water that [was] at his bolster."
1 Samuel 26:19
Now therefore, please let my lord the king hear the words of his servant. If the Lord has stirred you up against me, let Him accept an offering, but if [they are] the children of men, they [are] cursed before the Lord; for they have driven me out this day from abiding in the inheritance of the Lord, saying, 'Go, serve other gods.'
1 Samuel 26:21
Then Saul said, "I have sinned, return, my son David, for I will no longer do you harm, because my soul was precious in your eyes this day, behold, I have played the fool, and have erred exceedingly."
1 Samuel 26:23
The Lord renders to every man his righteousness and his faithfulness, for the Lord delivered you into [my] hand today, but I would not stretch forth my hand against the Lord's anointed.
1 Samuel 27:1
And David said in his heart, "I will now perish one day by the hand of Saul, [there is] nothing better for me than that I should speedily escape into the land of the Philistines; and Saul will despair of me, to seek me anymore in any coast of Israel, so I will escape out of his hand."
1 Samuel 27:5
And David said to Achish, "If I have now found grace in your eyes, let them give me a place in some town in the country, that I may dwell there, for why should your servant dwell in the royal city with you?"
1 Samuel 27:8
And David and his men went up, and invaded the Geshurites, and the Gezrites, and the Amalekites, for those [nations were] of old, the inhabitants of the land, as you go to Shur, even to the land of Egypt.
1 Samuel 27:9
And David struck the land, and left neither man nor woman alive, and took away the sheep, and the oxen, and the donkeys, and the camels, and the apparel, and returned, and came to Achish.
1 Samuel 27:11
And David saved neither man nor woman alive, to bring [tidings] to Gath, saying, "Unless they should tell on us, saying, 'David did thus, and so [will] his manner [be] all the while he dwells in the country of the Philistines.'"
1 Samuel 28:1
And it came to pass in those days, that the Philistines gathered their armies together for warfare, to fight with Israel. And Achish said to David, "Do you assuredly know, that you will go out with me to battle, you and your men."
1 Samuel 28:3
Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had lamented him, and buried him in Ramah, even in his own city. And Saul had put away those who had familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land.
1 Samuel 28:7
