I Samuel 21 (asv)
21:7Now a certain man of the servants of Saul was there that day, detained before Jehovah; and his name was Doeg the Edomite, the chiefest of the herdsmen that belonged to Saul. 21:8And David said unto Ahimelech, And is there not here under thy hand spear or sword? for I have neither brought my sword nor my weapons with me, because the king's business required haste. 21:9And the priest said, The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom thou slewest in the vale of Elah, behold, it is here wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod: if thou wilt take that, take it; for there is no other save that here. And David said, There is none like that; give it me.
21:10And David arose, and fled that day for fear of Saul, and went to Achish the king of Gath. 21:11And the servants of Achish said unto him, Is not this David the king of the land? did they not sing one to another of him in dances, saying,
Saul hath slain his thousands,
And David his ten thousands?
21:12And David laid up these words in his heart, and was sore afraid of Achish the king of Gath. 21:13And he changed his behavior before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard. 21:14Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, ye see the man is mad; wherefore then have ye brought him to me? 21:15Do I lack madmen, that ye have brought this fellow to play the madman in my presence? shall this fellow come into my house?
