Now they told David, "Behold, the Philistines are fighting against 1Keilah and are robbing the threshing floors."
Therefore David 2inquired of the LORD, "Shall I go and attack these Philistines?" And the LORD said to David, "Go and attack the Philistines and save Keilah."
But David's men said to him, "Behold, we are afraid here in Judah; how much more then if we go to Keilah against the armies of the Philistines?"
Then David 3inquired of the LORD again. And the LORD answered him, "Arise, go down to Keilah, 4for I will give the Philistines into your hand.
And David and his men went to Keilah and fought with the Philistines and brought away their livestock and struck them with a great blow. So David saved the inhabitants of Keilah.
5When Abiathar the son of Ahimelech had fled to David to Keilah, he had come down with an ephod in his hand.
