The Priests Slain at Nob

1 So David departed from there and escaped R729 to the R730 cave of Adullam; and when his brothers and all his father's household heard of it, they went down there to him. 2 Everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was F230 in debt, and everyone who was discontented F231 gathered to him; and he became captain over them. Now there were about R731 four hundred men with him.

3 And David went from there to Mizpah of Moab; and he said to the king of Moab, "Please let my father and my mother come and stay with you until I know what God will do for me." 4 Then he left them with the king of Moab; and they stayed with him all the time that David was in the stronghold. 5 The R732 prophet Gad said to David, "Do not stay in the stronghold; depart, and go into the land of Judah." So David departed and went into the forest of Hereth.

6 Then Saul heard that David and the men who were with him had been discovered. Now Saul R733 was sitting in Gibeah, under the tamarisk tree on the height with his spear in his hand, and all his servants were standing around him. 7 Saul said to his servants who stood around him, "Hear now, O Benjamites! Will the son of Jesse also give to all of you fields and vineyards? Will R734 he make you all commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds? 8 "For all of you have conspired against me so that there is no one who discloses F232 to me when R735 my son makes a covenant with the son of Jesse, and there is none of you who R736 is sorry for me or discloses F232 to me that my son has stirred up my servant against me to lie in ambush, as it is this day." 9 Then Doeg R737 the Edomite, who was standing F233 by the servants of Saul, said, "I R738 saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech R739 the son of Ahitub. 10 "He R740 inquired of the LORD for him, gave R741 him provisions, and gave R742 him the sword of Goliath the Philistine."

11 Then the king sent someone to summon Ahimelech the priest, the son of Ahitub, and all his father's household, the priests who were in Nob; and all of them came to the king. 12 Saul said, "Listen now, son of Ahitub." And he answered, F234 "Here I am, my lord." 13 Saul then said to him, "Why have you and the son of Jesse conspired against me, in that you have given him bread and a sword and have inquired of God for him, so that he would rise up against me by R743 lying in ambush as it is this day?"

14 Then R744 Ahimelech answered the king and said, "And who among all your servants is as faithful as David, even the king's son-in-law, who is F235 captain over your guard, and is honored in your house? 15 "Did I just begin to R745 inquire of God for him today? Far be it from me! Do R746 not let the king impute anything to his servant or to any of the household of my father, for your servant knows nothing at F236 all of this whole affair." 16 But the king said, "You shall surely die, Ahimelech, you and all your father's household!" 17 And the R747 king said to the guards F237 who were attending him, "Turn around and put the priests of the LORD to death, because their hand also is with David and because they knew that he was fleeing and did not reveal F238 it to me." But the servants R748 of the king were not willing to put forth their hands to attack F239 the priests of the LORD. 18 Then the king said to Doeg, "You turn around and attack F240 the priests." And Doeg the Edomite turned around and attacked F241 the priests, and he R749 killed that day eighty-five men who R750 wore the linen ephod. 19 And he R751 struck Nob the city of the priests with the edge of the sword, both men and women, children and infants; also oxen, donkeys, and sheep he struck with the edge of the sword.

20 But one R752 son of Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, named Abiathar, escaped R753 and fled after David. 21 Abiathar told David that Saul had killed the priests of the LORD. 22 Then David said to Abiathar, "I knew on that day, when Doeg R754 the Edomite was there, that he would surely tell Saul. I have brought about the death of every person in your father's household. 23 "Stay with me; do not be afraid, for he R755 who seeks my life seeks your life, for you are safe F242 with me."
