Saul chases David

1 David was told, "The Philistines are now attacking Keilah and looting the threshing floors!" 2 David questioned the LORD, "Should I go and fight these Philistines?" "Go!" the LORD answered. "Fight the Philistines and save Keilah!" 3 But David's men said to him, "Look how frightened we are here in Judah. It'll be worse if we go to Keilah against Philistine forces!" 4 So David questioned the LORD again, and the LORD reaffirmed, "Yes, go down to Keilah, because I will hand the Philistines over to you. 5 Then David and his soldiers went to Keilah and fought the Philistines, driving off their cattle and defeating them decisively. And that's how David saved the residents of Keilah. 6 Now after Abiathar, Ahimelech's son, fled to David, he had accompanied David to Keilah,a bringing a priestly vestb with him.
