|1st Samuel 26|
King James Bible
And David said4 in his heart, I shall now perish11 one day by the hand of Saul: [there is] nothing better for me than that I should speedily9 escape11 into the land of the Philistines; and Saul shall despair8 of me, to seek15 me any more in any coast of Israel: so shall I escape8 out of his hand.
And David said4 unto Achish, If I have now found1 grace in thine eyes, let them give4 me a place in some town in the country, that I may dwell4 there: for why should thy servant dwell4 in the royal city with thee?
And David and his men went up,4 and invaded4 the Geshurites, and the Gezrites, and the Amalekites: for those [nations were] of old the inhabitants6 of the land, as thou goest2 to Shur, even unto the land of Egypt.
And David saved neither man nor woman alive,17 to bring53 [tidings] to Gath, saying,2 Lest they should tell55 on us, saying,2 So did1 David, and so [will be] his manner all the while he dwelleth1 in the country of the Philistines.
