1 Samuel 19:1  (King James Version)
And Saul spake to Jonathan his son, and to all his servants, that they should kill David.

* And Saul.
Saul's enmity now burst forth, in the avowed purpose of
putting David to death; and nothing less than the especial
interposition of Providence could have saved David's life,
when every officer about the king's person, and every
soldier, had positive orders to dispatch him.
