1 Samuel 1:11; 1 Samuel 1:26; 1 Samuel 14:39; 1 Samuel 14:45; 1 Samuel 15:8; 1 Samuel 17:26; 1 Samuel 17:36; 1 Samuel 17:46; 1 Samuel 17:55; 1 Samuel 18:18; 1 Samuel 19:6; 1 Samuel 20:3; 1 Samuel 20:14; 1 Samuel 25:6; 1 Samuel 25:26; 1 Samuel 25:29; 1 Samuel 25:34; 1 Samuel 26:10; 1 Samuel 26:16; 1 Samuel 28:10; 1 Samuel 29:6
And she vowed a vow, and said , O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.
And she said , Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD.
For, as the LORD liveth, which saveth Israel, though it be in Jonathan my son, he shall surely die . But there was not a man among all the people that answered him.
And the people said unto Saul, Shall Jonathan die , who hath wrought this great salvation in Israel? God forbid: as the LORD liveth, there shall not one hair of his head fall to the ground; for he hath wrought with God this day. So the people rescued Jonathan, that he died not.
And he took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword.
And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying , What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.
This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
And when Saul saw David go forth against the Philistine, he said unto Abner, the captain of the host, Abner, whose son is this youth? And Abner said , As thy soul liveth, O king, I cannot tell .
And David said unto Saul, Who am I? and what is my life, or my father's family in Israel, that I should be son in law to the king?
And Saul hearkened unto the voice of Jonathan: and Saul sware , As the LORD liveth, he shall not be slain .
And David sware moreover, and said , Thy father certainly knoweth that I have found grace in thine eyes; and he saith , Let not Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved : but truly as the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, there is but a step between me and death.
And thou shalt not only while yet I live shew me the kindness of the LORD, that I die not:
And thus shall ye say to him that liveth in prosperity, Peace be both to thee, and peace be to thine house, and peace be unto all that thou hast.
Now therefore, my lord, as the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, seeing the LORD hath withholden thee from coming to shed blood, and from avenging thyself with thine own hand, now let thine enemies , and they that seek evil to my lord, be as Nabal.
Yet a man is risen to pursue thee, and to seek thy soul: but the soul of my lord shall be bound in the bundle of life with the LORD thy God; and the souls of thine enemies , them shall he sling out , as out of the middle of a sling.
For in very deed, as the LORD God of Israel liveth, which hath kept me back from hurting thee, except thou hadst hasted and come to meet me, surely there had not been left unto Nabal by the morning light any that pisseth against the wall.
David said furthermore, As the LORD liveth, the LORD shall smite him; or his day shall come to die ; or he shall descend into battle, and perish .
This thing is not good that thou hast done . As the LORD liveth, ye are worthy to die, because ye have not kept your master, the LORD'S anointed. And now see where the king's spear is, and the cruse of water that was at his bolster.
And Saul sware to her by the LORD, saying , As the LORD liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing.
Then Achish called David, and said unto him, Surely, as the LORD liveth, thou hast been upright, and thy going out and thy coming in with me in the host is good in my sight: for I have not found evil in thee since the day of thy coming unto me unto this day: nevertheless the lords favour thee not.
