David Protected from Saul

1 Now Saul told Jonathan his son and all his servants to R652 put David to death. But Jonathan, R653 Saul's son, greatly delighted in David. 2 So Jonathan told David saying, "Saul my father is seeking to put you to death. Now therefore, please be on guard in the morning, and stay in a secret place and hide yourself. 3 "I will go out and stand beside my father in the field where you are, and I will speak with my father about you; if R654 I find F193 out anything, then I will tell you." 4 Then Jonathan spoke R655 well of David to Saul his father and said to him, "Do R656 not let the king sin against his servant David, since he has not sinned against you, and since his deeds have been very beneficial F194 to you. 5 "For he R657 took his life in his hand and struck the Philistine, and the R658 LORD brought about a great deliverance for all Israel; you saw it and rejoiced. Why R659 then will you sin against innocent blood by putting David to death without a cause?" 6 Saul listened to the voice of Jonathan, and Saul vowed, "As the LORD lives, he shall not be put to death." 7 Then Jonathan called David, and Jonathan told him all these words. And Jonathan brought David to Saul, and he was in his presence as formerly. R660

8 When there was war again, David went out and fought with the Philistines and defeated F195 them with great slaughter, so that they fled before him. 9 Now there was an R661 evil spirit from the LORD on Saul as he was sitting in his house with R662 his spear in his hand, and R663 David was playing the harp with his hand. 10 Saul R664 tried to pin F196 David to the wall with the spear, but he slipped away out of Saul's presence, so that he stuck F197 the spear into the wall. And David fled and escaped that night.

11 Then Saul R665 sent messengers to David's house to watch him, in order to put him to death in the morning. But Michal, David's wife, told him, saying, "If you do not save your life tonight, tomorrow you will be put to death." 12 So R666 Michal let David down through a window, and he went out and fled and escaped. 13 Michal took the R667 household F198 idol and laid it on the bed, and put a quilt of goats' hair at its head, and covered it with clothes. 14 When Saul sent messengers to take David, she said, "He R668 is sick." 15 Then Saul sent messengers to see David, saying, "Bring him up to me on his F199 bed, that I may put him to death." 16 When the messengers entered, behold, the household F200 idol was on the bed with the quilt of goats' hair at its head. 17 So Saul said to Michal, "Why have you deceived me like this and let my enemy go, so that he has escaped?" And Michal said to Saul, "He said to me, `Let me go! Why R669 should I put you to death?' "

18 Now David fled and escaped and came to R670 Samuel at Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and stayed in Naioth. R671 19 It was told Saul, saying, "Behold, David is at Naioth in Ramah." 20 Then Saul R672 sent messengers to take David, but when they saw the R673 company of the prophets prophesying, with Samuel standing and presiding over them, the Spirit of God came upon the messengers of Saul; and they R674 also prophesied. 21 When it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they also prophesied. So Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they also prophesied. 22 Then he himself went to Ramah and came as far as the large well that is in Secu; and he asked and said, "Where are Samuel and David?" And someone said, "Behold, they are at Naioth in Ramah." 23 He proceeded F201 there to Naioth in Ramah; and the R675 Spirit of God came upon him also, so that he went along prophesying continually until he came to Naioth in Ramah. 24 He also stripped off his clothes, and he too prophesied before Samuel and lay F202 down naked R676 F203 all that day and all that night. Therefore they say, "Is R677 Saul also among the prophets?"
