1 Samuel 19:15 (King James Version)
And Saul sent the messengers again to see David, saying, Bring him up to me in the bed, that I may slay him.

- The eastern beds consist merely of two thick cotton quilts, one of which, folded double, serves as a mattress, the other as a covering. Such seems to have been the bed of David, which could easily have been carried, with himself in it, to the presence of Saul.
