    18:1 And it came to pass, when he had made an end 3615 8763 of speaking 1696 8763 unto Saul 7586, that the soul 5315 of Jonathan 3083 was knit 7194 8738 with the soul 5315 of David 1732, and Jonathan 3083 loved 157 8799 him as his own soul 5315.

    18:2 And Saul 7586 took 3947 8799 him that day 3117, and would let 5414 8804 him go no more home 7725 8800 to his father's 1 house 1004.

    18:3 Then Jonathan 3083 and David 1732 made 3772 8799 a covenant 1285, because he loved 160 him as his own soul 5315.

    18:4 And Jonathan 3083 stripped 6584 8691 himself of the robe 4598 that [was] upon him, and gave 5414 8799 it to David 1732, and his garments 4055, even to his sword 2719, and to his bow 7198, and to his girdle 2289.

    18:5 And David 1732 went out 3318 8799 whithersoever Saul 7586 sent 7971 8799 him, [and] behaved himself wisely 7919 8686: and Saul 7586 set 7760 8799 him over the men 582 of war 4421, and he was accepted 3190 8799 in the sight 5869 of all the people 5971, and also in the sight 5869 of Saul's 7586 servants 5650.(behaved…: or, prospered)

    18:6 And it came to pass as they came 935 8800, when David 1732 was returned 7725 8800 from the slaughter 5221 8687 of the Philistine 6430, that the women 802 came out 3318 8799 of all cities 5892 of Israel 3478, singing 7891 8800 and dancing 4246, to meet 7125 8800 king 4428 Saul 7586, with tabrets 8596, with joy 8057, and with instruments 7991 of musick.(Philistine: or, Philistines)(instruments…: Heb. three stringed instruments)

    18:7 And the women 802 answered 6030 8799 [one another] as they played 7832 8764, and said 559 8799, Saul 7586 hath slain 5221 8689 his thousands 505, and David 1732 his ten thousands 7233.

    18:8 And Saul 7586 was very 3966 wroth 2734 8799, and the saying 1697 displeased 3415 8799 5869 him; and he said 559 8799, They have ascribed 5414 8804 unto David 1732 ten thousands 7233, and to me they have ascribed 5414 8804 [but] thousands 505: and [what] can he have more but the kingdom 4410?(displeased him: Heb. was evil in his eyes)

    18:9 And Saul 7586 eyed 5770 8802 David 1732 from that day 3117 and forward 1973.

    18:10 And it came to pass on the morrow 4283, that the evil 7451 spirit 7307 from God 430 came 6743 8799 upon Saul 7586, and he prophesied 5012 8691 in the midst 8432 of the house 1004: and David 1732 played 5059 8764 with his hand 3027, as at other times 3117: and [there was] a javelin 2595 in Saul's 7586 hand 3027.

    18:11 And Saul 7586 cast 2904 8686 the javelin 2595; for he said 559 8799, I will smite 5221 8686 David 1732 even to the wall 7023 [with it]. And David 1732 avoided out 5437 8735 of his presence 6440 twice 6471.

    18:12 And Saul 7586 was afraid 3372 8799 of 6440 David 1732, because the LORD 3068 was with him, and was departed 5493 8804 from Saul 7586.

    18:13 Therefore Saul 7586 removed 5493 8686 him from him, and made 7760 8799 him his captain 8269 over a thousand 505; and he went out 3318 8799 and came in 935 8799 before 6440 the people 5971.

    18:14 And David 1732 behaved himself wisely 7919 8688 in all his ways 1870; and the LORD 3068 [was] with him.(behaved…: or, prospered)

    18:15 Wherefore when Saul 7586 saw 7200 8799 that he behaved 7919 0 himself very 3966 wisely 7919 8688, he was afraid 1481 8799 of 6440 him.

    18:16 But all Israel 3478 and Judah 3063 loved 157 8802 David 1732, because he went out 3318 8802 and came in 935 8802 before 6440 them.

    18:17 And Saul 7586 said 559 8799 to David 1732, Behold my elder 1419 daughter 1323 Merab 4764, her will I give 5414 8799 thee to wife 802: only be thou valiant 1121 2428 for me, and fight 3898 8734 the LORD'S 3068 battles 4421. For Saul 7586 said 559 8804, Let not mine hand 3027 be upon him, but let the hand 3027 of the Philistines 6430 be upon him.(valiant: Heb. a son of valour)

    18:18 And David 1732 said 559 8799 unto Saul 7586, Who [am] I? and what [is] my life 2416, [or] my father's 1 family 4940 in Israel 3478, that I should be son in law 2860 to the king 4428?

    18:19 But it came to pass at the time 6256 when Merab 4764 Saul's 7586 daughter 1323 should have been given 5414 8800 to David 1732, that she was given 5414 8738 unto Adriel 5741 the Meholathite 4259 to wife 802.

    18:20 And Michal 4324 Saul's 7586 daughter 1323 loved 157 8799 David 1732: and they told 5046 8686 Saul 7586, and the thing 1697 pleased 3474 8799 5869 him.(pleased him: Heb. was right in his eyes)

    18:21 And Saul 7586 said 559 8799, I will give 5414 8799 him her, that she may be a snare 4170 to him, and that the hand 3027 of the Philistines 6430 may be against him. Wherefore Saul 7586 said 559 8799 to David 1732, Thou shalt this day 3117 be my son in law 2859 8691 in [the one of] the twain 8147.

    18:22 And Saul 7586 commanded 6680 8762 his servants 5650, [saying], Commune 1696 8761 with David 1732 secretly 3909, and say 559 8800, Behold, the king 4428 hath delight 2654 8804 in thee, and all his servants 5650 love 157 8804 thee: now therefore be the king's 4428 son in law 2859 8690.

    18:23 And Saul's 7586 servants 5650 spake 1696 8762 those words 1697 in the ears 241 of David 1732. And David 1732 said 559 8799, Seemeth 5869 it to you [a] light 7043 8738 [thing] to be a king's 4428 son in law 2859 8692, seeing that I [am] a poor 7326 8802 man 376, and lightly esteemed 7034 8737?

    18:24 And the servants 5650 of Saul 7586 told 5046 8686 him, saying 559 8800, On this manner 1697 spake 1696 8765 David 1732.(On…: Heb. According to these words)

    18:25 And Saul 7586 said 559 8799, Thus shall ye say 559 8799 to David 1732, The king 4428 desireth 2656 not any dowry 4119, but an hundred 3967 foreskins 6190 of the Philistines 6430, to be avenged 5358 8736 of the king's 4428 enemies 341 8802. But Saul 7586 thought 2803 8804 to make David 1732 fall 5307 8687 by the hand 3027 of the Philistines 6430.

    18:26 And when his servants 5650 told 5046 8686 David 1732 these words 1697, it pleased 3474 8799 1697 5869 David 1732 well to be the king's 4428 son in law 2859 8692: and the days 3117 were not expired 4390 8804.(expired: Heb. fulfilled)

    18:27 Wherefore David 1732 arose 6965 8799 and went 3212 8799, he and his men 582, and slew 5221 8686 of the Philistines 6430 two hundred 3967 men 376; and David 1732 brought 935 8686 their foreskins 6190, and they gave them in full tale 4390 8762 to the king 4428, that he might be the king's 4428 son in law 2859 8692. And Saul 7586 gave 5414 8799 him Michal 4324 his daughter 1323 to wife 802.

    18:28 And Saul 7586 saw 7200 8799 and knew 3045 8799 that the LORD 3068 [was] with David 1732, and [that] Michal 4324 Saul's 7586 daughter 1323 loved 157 8804 him.

    18:29 And Saul 7586 was yet the more 3254 8686 afraid 3372 8800 of 6440 David 1732; and Saul 7586 became David's 1732 enemy 341 8802 continually 3117.

    18:30 Then the princes 8269 of the Philistines 6430 went forth 3318 8799: and it came to pass, after 1767 they went forth 3318 8800, [that] David 1732 behaved himself more wisely 7919 8804 than all the servants 5650 of Saul 7586; so that his name 8034 was much 3966 set by 3365 8799.(set by: Heb. precious)
