1 Samuel 29

NIRV 1 The Philistines gathered their whole army together at Aphek. Israel's army camped by the spring of water at Jezreel. NIV 1 The Philistines gathered all their forces at Aphek, and Israel camped by the spring in Jezreel. NIRV 2 The Philistine rulers marched out in companies of hundreds and thousands. David and his men were marching with Achish behind the others. NIV 2 As the Philistine rulers marched with their units of hundreds and thousands, David and his men were marching at the rear with Achish. NIRV 3 The commanders of the Philistines asked, "Why are these Hebrews here?" Achish replied, "That's David, isn't it? Wasn't he an officer of Saul, the king of Israel? He has already been with me for more than a year. I haven't found any fault in him. That's been true from the day he left Saul until now." NIV 3 The commanders of the Philistines asked, “What about these Hebrews?” Achish replied, “Is this not David, who was an officer of Saul king of Israel? He has already been with me for over a year, and from the day he left Saul until now, I have found no fault in him.” NIRV 4 But the Philistine commanders were angry with Achish. They said, "Send David back. Let him return to the town you gave him. He must not go with us into battle. If he does, he'll turn against us during the fighting. In fact, he might even cut off the heads of our own men. What better way could he choose to win back his master's favor? NIV 4 But the Philistine commanders were angry with Achish and said, “Send the man back, that he may return to the place you assigned him. He must not go with us into battle, or he will turn against us during the fighting. How better could he regain his master’s favor than by taking the heads of our own men? NIRV 5 Isn't David the one the Israelites sang about when they danced? They sang, " 'Saul has killed thousands of men. David has killed tens of thousands.' " NIV 5 Isn’t this the David they sang about in their dances: “ ‘Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens of thousands’?” NIRV 6 So Achish called David over to him. He said, "You have been faithful to me. And that's just as sure as the LORD is alive. I would be pleased to have you serve with me in the army. I haven't found any fault in you. That's been true from the day you came to me until now. But the Philistine rulers aren't pleased to have you come along. NIV 6 So Achish called David and said to him, “As surely as the LORD lives, you have been reliable, and I would be pleased to have you serve with me in the army. From the day you came to me until today, I have found no fault in you, but the rulers don’t approve of you. NIRV 7 So go back home in peace. Don't do anything that wouldn't please the Philistine rulers." NIV 7 Now turn back and go in peace; do nothing to displease the Philistine rulers.” NIRV 8 "But what have I done?" asked David. "What have you found against me from the day I came to you until now? Why can't I go and fight against your enemies? After all, you are my king and master." NIV 8 “But what have I done?” asked David. “What have you found against your servant from the day I came to you until now? Why can’t I go and fight against the enemies of my lord the king?” NIRV 9 Achish answered, "You have been as pleasing to me as an angel of God. But the Philistine commanders have said, 'We don't want David to go up with us into battle.' NIV 9 Achish answered, “I know that you have been as pleasing in my eyes as an angel of God; nevertheless, the Philistine commanders have said, ‘He must not go up with us into battle.’ NIRV 10 So get up early in the morning. Take with you the men who used to serve Saul. Leave as soon as the sun begins to come up." NIV 10 Now get up early, along with your master’s servants who have come with you, and leave in the morning as soon as it is light.” NIRV 11 So David and his men got up early in the morning. They went back to the land of the Philistines. And the Philistines went up to Jezreel. NIV 11 So David and his men got up early in the morning to go back to the land of the Philistines, and the Philistines went up to Jezreel.
