1 Samuel 22:1-23
1. And David departed thence, and escaped to the cave of Adullam. And his brethren and all his father's house heard [it], and they went down thither to him.
2. And every one in distress, and every one that was in debt, and every one of embittered spirit collected round him; and he became a captain over them; and there were with him about four hundred men.
3. And David went thence to Mizpeh in Moab, and said to the king of Moab, Let my father and my mother, I pray thee, come forth amongst you, till I know what God will do for me.
4. And he brought them before the king of Moab; and they abode with him all the while that David was in the stronghold.
5. And the prophet Gad said to David, Abide not in the stronghold; depart, and go into the land of Judah. Then David departed, and came into the forest of Hareth.
6. And Saul heard that David was discovered, and the men that were with him. Now Saul was sitting in Gibeah under the tamarisk upon the height, having his spear in his hand, and all his servants were standing by him.
7. Then Saul said to his servants that stood by him, Hear now, ye Benjaminites: will the son of Jesse give every one of you also fields and vineyards? Will he make you all captains of thousands and captains of hundreds,
8. that all of you have conspired against me, and there is none that informs me when my son has made [a covenant] with the son of Jesse; and there is none of you that is sorry for me, or informs me that my son has stirred up my servant as a lier-in-wait against me, as at this day?
9. Then answered Doeg the Edomite, who was set over the servants of Saul, and said, I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech the son of Ahitub.
10. And he inquired of Jehovah for him, and gave him victuals, and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine.
11. Then the king sent to call Ahimelech the priest, the son of Ahitub, and all his father's house, the priests that were in Nob; and they came all of them to the king.
12. And Saul said, Hear now, son of Ahitub. And he answered, Here I am, my lord.
13. And Saul said to him, Why have ye conspired against me, thou and the son of Jesse, in that thou hast given him bread, and a sword, and hast inquired of God for him, that he should rise against me as a lier-in-wait, as at this day?
14. And Ahimelech answered the king and said, And who is so faithful among all thy servants as David, who is the king's son-in-law, and has access to thy secret council, and is honourable in thy house?
15. Was it to-day that I began to inquire of God for him? be it far from me: let not the king charge anything to his servant, [nor] to all the house of my father; for thy servant knew nothing of all this, less or more.
16. And the king said, Thou shalt certainly die, Ahimelech, thou, and all thy father's house.
17. And the king said to the couriers that stood about him, Turn and put the priests of Jehovah to death; because their hand also is with David, and because they knew when he fled, and did not inform me. But the servants of the king were not willing to put forth their hand to fall on the priests of Jehovah.
18. And the king said to Doeg, Turn thou, and fall on the priests. And Doeg the Edomite turned, and fell on the priests, and put to death that day eighty-five persons who wore the linen ephod.
19. And Nob, the city of the priests, he smote with the edge of the sword, both men and women, infants and sucklings, and oxen, and asses, and sheep, with the edge of the sword.
20. And one of the sons of Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, named Abiathar, escaped, and fled after David.
21. And Abiathar informed David that Saul had slain Jehovah's priests.
22. And David said to Abiathar, I knew it that day, when Doeg the Edomite was there, that he would certainly tell Saul: I am accountable for all the lives of thy father's house.
23. Abide with me, fear not; for he that seeks my life seeks thy life; for with me thou art in safe keeping.

1 Samuel 23:1-28
1. And they told David, saying, Behold, the Philistines fight against Keilah, and they rob the threshing-floors.
2. And David inquired of Jehovah, saying, Shall I go and smite these Philistines? And Jehovah said to David, Go and smite the Philistines, and save 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 armies of the Philistines?
4. And David inquired of Jehovah yet again. And Jehovah answered him and said, Arise, go down to Keilah; for I will give the Philistines into thy hand.
5. And David and his men went to Keilah, and fought against the Philistines, and brought away their cattle, and smote them with a great slaughter. So David saved the inhabitants of Keilah.
6. And it came to pass, when Abiathar the son of Ahimelech fled to David to Keilah, he came down with an ephod in his hand.
7. And it was told Saul that David had come to Keilah. Then Saul said, God has cast him off into my hand; for he is shut in, by entering into a city that has gates and bars.
8. And Saul summoned all the people to war, to go down to Keilah, to besiege David and his men.
9. And when David knew that Saul devised mischief against him, he said to Abiathar the priest, Bring the ephod.
10. Then said David, Jehovah, God of Israel, thy servant hath heard for certain that Saul seeketh to come to Keilah, to destroy the city for my sake.
11. Will the citizens of Keilah deliver me up into his hand? will Saul come down, as thy servant hath heard? Jehovah, God of Israel, I beseech thee, tell thy servant. And Jehovah said, He will come down.
12. And David said, Will the citizens of Keilah deliver up me and my men into the hand of Saul? And Jehovah said, They will deliver [thee] up.
13. Then David and his men, about six hundred, arose and departed out of Keilah, and went whithersoever they could go. And it was told Saul that David had escaped from Keilah, and he forbore to go forth.
14. And David abode in the wilderness in strongholds, and abode in the mountain in the wilderness of Ziph. And Saul sought him every day, but God did not give him into his hand.
15. And David saw that Saul had come out to seek his life; and David was in the wilderness of Ziph in a wood.
16. And Jonathan Saul's son arose, and went to David into the wood, and strengthened his hand in God.
17. And he said to him, Fear not; for the hand of Saul my father will not find thee; and thou shalt be king over Israel, and I shall be next to thee; and that also Saul my father knows.
18. And they two made a covenant before Jehovah; and David abode in the wood, and Jonathan went to his house.
19. And the Ziphites came up to Saul to Gibeah, saying, Does not David hide himself with us in strongholds in the wood, on the hill of Hachilah, which is on the south of the waste?
20. And now, O king, come down according to all the desire of thy soul to come down; and it will be for us to deliver him up into the king's hand.
21. And Saul said, Blessed be ye of Jehovah; for ye have compassion upon me.
22. Go, I pray you, make yet more sure, and know and see his place where his track is, who has seen him there; for it is told me that he deals very subtilly.
23. And see, and ascertain all the lurking-places where he hides himself, and come ye again to me with sure information, that I may go with you; and it shall come to pass, if he be in the land, that I will search him out throughout the thousands of Judah.
24. And they arose and went to Ziph before Saul; but David and his men were in the wilderness of Maon, in the plain on the south of the waste.
25. And Saul and his men went to seek [him]. And they told David; and he came down from the rock, and abode in the wilderness of Maon. And Saul heard [that], and he pursued after David in the wilderness of Maon.
26. And Saul went on this side of the mountain, and David and his men on that side of the mountain; and David made haste to get away from Saul; and Saul and his men sought to surround David and his men to take them.
27. But there came a messenger to Saul, saying, Haste thee and come; for the Philistines have made a raid against the land.
28. And Saul returned from pursuing after David, and went against the Philistines; therefore they called that place Sela-hammahlekoth.

Psalms 59:6-17
6. They return in the evening; they howl like a dog, and go round about the city:
7. Behold, they belch out with their mouth; swords are in their lips: for who [say they] doth hear?
8. But thou, Jehovah, wilt laugh at them; thou wilt have all the nations in derision.
9. Their strength! I will take heed to thee; for God is my high fortress.
10. God, whose loving-kindness will come to meet me, God shall let me see [my desire] upon mine enemies.
11. Slay them not, lest my people forget; by thy power make them wander, and bring them down, O Lord, our shield.
12. [Because of] the sin of their mouth, the word of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride; and because of cursing and lying which they speak.
13. Make an end in wrath, make an end, that they may be no more; that they may know that God ruleth in Jacob, unto the ends of the earth. Selah.
14. And in the evening they shall return, they shall howl like a dog, and go round about the city.
15. They shall wander about for meat, and stay all night if they be not satisfied.
16. But as for me, I will sing of thy strength; yea, I will sing aloud of thy loving-kindness in the morning; for thou hast been to me a high fortress, and a refuge in the day of my trouble.
17. Unto thee, my strength, will I sing psalms; for God is my high fortress, the God of my mercy.

Proverbs 16:1-2
1. The purposes of the heart are of man, but the answer of the tongue is from Jehovah.
2. All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but Jehovah weigheth the spirits.

John 1:1-28
1. In [the] beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2. *He* was in the beginning with God.
3. All things received being through him, and without him not one [thing] received being which has received being.
4. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5. And the light appears in darkness, and the darkness apprehended it not.
6. There was a man sent from God, his name John.
7. He came for witness, that he might witness concerning the light, that all might believe through him.
8. *He* was not the light, but that he might witness concerning the light.
9. The true light was that which, coming into the world, lightens every man.
10. He was in the world, and the world had [its] being through him, and the world knew him not.
11. He came to his own, and his own received him not;
12. but as many as received him, to them gave he [the] right to be children of God, to those that believe on his name;
13. who have been born, not of blood, nor of flesh's will, nor of man's will, but of God.
14. And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we have contemplated his glory, a glory as of an only-begotten with a father), full of grace and truth;
15. (John bears witness of him, and he has cried, saying, This was he of whom I said, He that comes after me is preferred before me, for he was before me;)
16. for of his fulness we all have received, and grace upon grace.
17. For the law was given by Moses: grace and truth subsists through Jesus Christ.
18. No one has seen God at any time; the only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, *he* hath declared [him].
19. And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent from Jerusalem priests and Levites that they might ask him, Thou, who art thou?
20. And he acknowledged and denied not, and acknowledged, I am not the Christ.
21. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he says, I am not. Art thou the prophet? And he answered, No.
22. They said therefore to him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to those who sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23. He said, I [am] [the] voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the path of [the] Lord, as said Esaias the prophet.
24. And they were sent from among the Pharisees.
25. And they asked him and said to him, Why baptisest thou then, if thou art not the Christ, nor Elias, nor the prophet?
26. John answered them saying, I baptise with water. In the midst of you stands, whom ye do not know,
27. he who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to unloose.
28. These things took place in Bethany, across the Jordan, where John was baptising.
