24:1 It happened, when Saul was returned from following the Philistines, that it was told him, saying, Behold, David is in the wilderness of En-gedi.
24:4 The men of David said to him, Behold, the day of which Yahweh said to you, Behold, I will deliver your enemy into your hand, and you shall do to him as it shall seem good to you. Then David arose, and cut off the skirt of Saul`s robe secretly.
24:8 David also arose afterward, and went out of the cave, and cried after Saul, saying, My lord the king. When Saul looked behind him, David bowed with his face to the earth, and did obeisance.
24:9 David said to Saul, Why listen you to men`s words, saying, Behold, David seeks your hurt?
24:10 Behold, this day your eyes have seen how that Yahweh had delivered you today into my hand in the cave: and some bade me kill you; but [my eye] spared you; and I said, I will not put forth my hand against my lord; for he is Yahweh`s anointed.
24:11 Moreover, my father, behold, yes, see the skirt of your robe in my hand; for in that I cut off the skirt of your robe, and didn`t kill you, know you and see that there is neither evil nor disobedience in my hand, and I have not sinned against you, though you hunt after my life to take it.
24:12 Yahweh judge between me and you, and Yahweh avenge me of you; but my hand shall not be on you.
24:13 As says the proverb of the ancients, Out of the wicked comes forth wickedness; but my hand shall not be on you.
24:15 Yahweh therefore be judge, and give sentence between me and you, and see, and plead my cause, and deliver me out of your hand.
24:17 He said to David, You are more righteous than I; for you have rendered to me good, whereas I have rendered to you evil.
24:19 For if a man find his enemy, will he let him go well away? why Yahweh reward you good for that which you have done to me this day.
24:20 Now, behold, I know that you shall surely be king, and that the kingdom of Israel shall be established in your hand.
24:21 Swear now therefore to me by Yahweh, that you will not cut off my seed after me, and that you will not destroy my name out of my father`s house.
