- 13 Then David crossed over to the other side and stood on top of the mountain at a distance with a large area between them. 14 David called to the people and to Abner the son of Ner, saying, "Will you not answer, Abner?" Then Abner replied, "Who are you who calls to the king?" 15 So David said to Abner, "Are you not a man? And who is like you in Israel? Why then have you not guarded your lord the king? For one of the people came to destroy the king your lord. 16 "This thing that you have done is not good. As the LORD lives, all of you must R876 F304 surely die, because you did not guard your lord, the LORD'S anointed. And now, see where the king's spear is and the jug of water that was at his head." 17 Then Saul recognized David's voice and said, "Is R877 this your voice, my son David?" And David said, "It is my voice, my lord the king." 18 He also said, "Why R878 then is my lord pursuing his servant? For what have I done? Or what evil is in my hand? 19 "Now therefore, please let my lord the king listen to the words of his servant. If the R879 LORD has stirred you up against me, let R880 Him accept F305 an offering; but if R881 it is men, F306 cursed are they before the LORD, for they R882 have driven me out today so that I would have no attachment with the inheritance of the LORD, saying, `Go, serve other gods.' 20 "Now then, do not let my blood fall to the ground away from the presence of the LORD; for the king of Israel has come out to search for a R883 single flea, just as one hunts a partridge in the mountains."
