- 1 Then David came to Nob R711 to Ahimelech the priest; and Ahimelech came R712 trembling to meet David and said to him, "Why are you alone and no one with you?" 2 David said to Ahimelech the priest, "The king has commissioned me with a matter and has said to me, `Let R713 no one know anything about the matter on which I am sending you and with which I have commissioned you; and I have directed the young men to a certain place.' 3 "Now therefore, what do F222 you have on hand? Give me F223 five loaves of bread, or whatever can be found." 4 The priest answered David and said, "There is no ordinary bread on F224 hand, but there is consecrated R714 bread; if only the young men have kept R715 themselves from women." 5 David answered the priest and said to him, "Surely R716 women have been kept from us as previously when I set out and the vessels R717 of the young men were holy, though it was an ordinary journey; how much more then today will their F225 vessels be holy?" 6 So the R718 priest gave him consecrated bread; for there was no bread there but the bread R719 of the Presence which was removed from before the LORD, in order to put hot bread in its place when it was taken away. 7 Now one of the servants of Saul was there that day, detained before the LORD; and his name was Doeg R720 the Edomite, the chief R721 of Saul's shepherds. 8 David said to Ahimelech, "Now is there not a spear or a sword on F226 hand? For I brought neither my sword nor my weapons with F227 me, because the king's matter was urgent." 9 Then the priest said, "The R722 sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you killed F228 in R723 the valley of Elah, behold, it is wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod; if you would take it for yourself, take it. For there is no other except it here." And David said, "There is none like it; give it to me."
F222 Lit is under your hand?
F223 Lit in my hand
F224 Lit under my hand
F225 Lit it be holy in the vessel
F226 Lit under your hand
F227 Lit in my hand
F228 Lit smote
