1 Samuel 23:10

1 Samuel 23:10

Then said David
By the priest, for it was he that put the questions for and in the name of the inquirer:

O Lord God of Israel;
the great Jehovah, the covenant God of his people, who always has a merciful regard unto them:

thy servant hath certainly heard;
had good information of it, on which he could depend:

that Saul seeketh to come to Keilah;
that was his intention and resolution:

to destroy the city for my sake;
to besiege it, and demolish it, if that was necessary, in order to take him.
