And Saul, and Jonathan his son
Who were now joined to their men, on Saul's coming to Gibeah:
and the people that were present with them;
the six hundred men before numbered: abode in Gibeah of Benjamin; being perhaps a strong fortified place, not choosing to go forth to meet the army of the Philistines, so vastly superior to them:
but the Philistines encamped at Michmash;
the old quarters of Saul before he went to Gilgal, ( 1 Samuel 13:2 ) .
