Someone told David, "Look, the Philistines are fighting against Keilah and stealing grain from the threshing floors."
David asked the Lord, "Should I go and fight these Philistines?" The Lord answered him, "Go. Attack them, and save Keilah."
But David's men said to him, "We're afraid here in Judah. We will be more afraid if we go to Keilah where the Philistine army is."
David again asked the Lord, and the Lord answered, "Go down to Keilah. I will help you defeat the Philistines.
So David and his men went to Keilah and fought the Philistines and took their cattle. David killed many Philistines and saved the people of Keilah.
(Now Abiathar son of Ahimelech had brought the holy vest with him when he came to David at Keilah.)
