- 1 Then they told David, saying, "Behold, the Philistines are fighting against Keilah R756 and are plundering the threshing floors." 2 So David inquired R757 of the LORD, saying, "Shall I go and attack F243 these Philistines?" And the LORD said to David, "Go and attack F243 the Philistines and deliver Keilah." 3 But David's men said to him, "Behold, we are afraid here in Judah. How much more then if we go to Keilah against the ranks of the Philistines?" 4 Then David inquired of the LORD once more. And the LORD answered him and said, "Arise, go down to Keilah, for I R758 will give the Philistines into your hand." 5 So David and his men went to Keilah and fought with the Philistines; and he led away their livestock and struck them with a great slaughter. Thus David delivered the inhabitants of Keilah. 6 Now it came about, when Abiathar the son of Ahimelech fled R759 to David at Keilah, that he came down with an ephod in his hand.
