1 Samuel 22:11-23

CSB 11 The king sent [messengers] to summon Ahimelech the priest, son of Ahitub, and his father's whole family, who were priests in Nob. All of them came to the king. NIV 11 Then the king sent for the priest Ahimelech son of Ahitub and his father's whole family, who were the priests at Nob, and they all came to the king. CSB 12 Then Saul said, "Listen, son of Ahitub!" "I'm at your service, my lord," he said. NIV 12 Saul said, "Listen now, son of Ahitub." "Yes, my lord," he answered. CSB 13 Saul asked him, "Why did you and Jesse's son conspire against me? You gave him bread and a sword and inquired of God for him, so he could rise up against me and wait in ambush, as [is the case] today." NIV 13 Saul said to him, "Why have you conspired against me, you and the son of Jesse, giving him bread and a sword and inquiring of God for him, so that he has rebelled against me and lies in wait for me, as he does today?" CSB 14 Ahimelech replied to the king: "Who among all your servants is as faithful as David? He is the king's son-in-law, captain of your bodyguard, and honored in your house. NIV 14 Ahimelech answered the king, "Who of all your servants is as loyal as David, the king's son-in-law, captain of your bodyguard and highly respected in your household? CSB 15 Was today the first time I inquired of God for him? Of course not! Please don't let the king make an accusation against your servant or any of my father's household, for your servant didn't have any idea about all this." NIV 15 Was that day the first time I inquired of God for him? Of course not! Let not the king accuse your servant or any of his father's family, for your servant knows nothing at all about this whole affair." CSB 16 But the king said, "You will die, Ahimelech-you and your father's whole family!" NIV 16 But the king said, "You will surely die, Ahimelech, you and your father's whole family." CSB 17 Then the king ordered the guards standing by him, "Turn and kill the priests of the Lord because they sided with David. For they knew he was fleeing, but they didn't tell me." But the king's servants would not lift a hand to execute the priests of the Lord. NIV 17 Then the king ordered the guards at his side: "Turn and kill the priests of the LORD, because they too have sided with David. They knew he was fleeing, yet they did not tell me." But the king's officials were not willing to raise a hand to strike the priests of the LORD. CSB 18 So the king said to Doeg, "Go and execute the priests!" So Doeg the Edomite went and executed the priests himself. On that day, he killed 85 men who wore linen ephods. NIV 18 The king then ordered Doeg, "You turn and strike down the priests." So Doeg the Edomite turned and struck them down. That day he killed eighty-five men who wore the linen ephod. CSB 19 He also struck down Nob, the city of the priests, with the sword-both men and women, children and infants, oxen, donkeys, and sheep. NIV 19 He also put to the sword Nob, the town of the priests, with its men and women, its children and infants, and its cattle, donkeys and sheep. CSB 20 However, one of the sons of Ahimelech son of Ahitub escaped. His name was Abiathar, and he fled to David. NIV 20 But Abiathar, a son of Ahimelech son of Ahitub, escaped and fled to join David. CSB 21 Abiathar told David that Saul had killed the priests of the Lord. NIV 21 He told David that Saul had killed the priests of the LORD. CSB 22 Then David said to Abiathar, "I knew that Doeg the Edomite was there that day and that he was sure to report to Saul. I myself am responsible for the lives of everyone in your father's family. NIV 22 Then David said to Abiathar: "That day, when Doeg the Edomite was there, I knew he would be sure to tell Saul. I am responsible for the death of your father's whole family. CSB 23 Stay with me. Don't be afraid, for the one who wants to take my life wants to take your life. You will be safe with me." NIV 23 Stay with me; don't be afraid; the man who is seeking your life is seeking mine also. You will be safe with me."
