David at Nob

1 David went to Nob,1 to Ahimelech the priest. Ahimelech trembled2 when he met him, and asked, "Why are you alone? Why is no one with you?" 2 David answered Ahimelech the priest, "The king charged me with a certain matter and said to me, 'No one is to know anything about your mission and your instructions.' As for my men, I have told them to meet me at a certain place. 3 Now then, what do you have on hand? Give me five loaves of bread, or whatever you can find." 4 But the priest answered David, "I don't have any ordinary bread3 on hand; however, there is some consecrated4 bread here--provided the men have kept5 themselves from women." 5 David replied, "Indeed women have been kept from us, as usual6 whenevera I set out. The men's thingsb are holy7 even on missions that are not holy. How much more so today!"
