View In My Bible
15 Then Saul sent messengers to see David, saying, "Bring him up to me on ahis bed, that I may put him to death." 16 When the messengers entered, behold, the bhousehold idol was on the bed with the quilt of goats' hair at its head. 17 So Saul said to Michal, "Why have you deceived me like this and let my enemy go, so that he has escaped ?" And Michal said to Saul, "He said to me, 'Let me go ! 1Why should I put you to death ?' " 18 Now David fled and escaped and came 2to Samuel at Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and stayed in 3Naioth. 19 It was told Saul, saying, "Behold, David is at Naioth in Ramah." 20 Then 4Saul sent messengers to take David, but when they saw 5the company of the prophets prophesying, with Samuel standing and presiding over them, the Spirit of God came upon the messengers of Saul ; and 6they also prophesied. 21 When it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they also prophesied. So Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they also prophesied. 22 Then he himself went to Ramah and came as far as the large well that is in Secu ; and he asked and said, "Where are Samuel and David ?" And someone said, "Behold, they are at Naioth in Ramah." 23 He cproceeded there to Naioth in Ramah ; and 7the Spirit of God came upon him also, so that he went along prophesying continually until he came to Naioth in Ramah. 24 He also stripped off his clothes, and he too prophesied before Samuel and dlay down e8naked all that day and all that night. Therefore they say, "9Is Saul also among the prophets ?"
