Now the Amalekites had raided the Negev and Ziklag. They had attacked Ziklag and burned it, CSB 2 They also had kidnapped the women and everyone in it from the youngest to the oldest. They had killed no one but had carried them off as they went on their way. NIV 2 and had taken captive the women and everyone else in it, both young and old.

CSB 5 David's two wives, Ahinoam the Jezreelite and Abigail the widow of Nabal the Carmelite, had also been kidnapped. NIV 5 David’s two wives had been captured—Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail, the widow of Nabal of Carmel.

But David found strength in the Lord his God. NIV 6 David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the LORD his God. CSB 7 David said to Abiathar the priest, son of Ahimelech, "Bring me the ephod." So Abiathar brought it to him, NIV 7 Then David said to Abiathar the priest, the son of Ahimelek, “Bring me the ephod.” Abiathar brought it to him, CSB 8 and David asked the Lord: "Should I pursue these raiders? Will I overtake them?" The Lord replied to him, "Pursue [them], for you will certainly overtake [them] and rescue [the people]." NIV 8 and David inquired of the LORD, “Shall I pursue this raiding party? Will I overtake them?” “Pursue them,” he answered. “You will certainly overtake them and succeed in the rescue.” CSB 9 David and the 600 men with him went as far as the Wadi Besor, where where 200 men who were to remain behind would stop. NIV 9 David and the six hundred men with him came to the Besor Valley, where some stayed behind. CSB 10 They stopped because they were too exhausted to cross the Wadi Besor. David and 400 of the men continued in pursuit. NIV 10 Two hundred of them were too exhausted to cross the valley, but David and the other four hundred continued the pursuit. CSB 11 They found an Egyptian in the open country and brought him to David. They gave him some bread to eat and water to drink. NIV 11 They found an Egyptian in a field and brought him to David.

"I'm an Egyptian, the slave of an Amalekite man," he said. "My master abandoned me when I got sick three days ago. NIV 13 David asked him, “Who do you belong to? Where do you come from?” He said, “I am an Egyptian, the slave of an Amalekite. My master abandoned me when I became ill three days ago. CSB 14 We raided the south country of the Cherethites, [the territory] of Judah, and the south country of Caleb, and we burned down Ziklag." NIV 14 We raided the Negev of the Kerethites, some territory belonging to Judah and the Negev of Caleb. And we burned Ziklag.” CSB 15 David then asked him, "Will you lead me to these raiders?" He said, "Swear to me by God that you won't kill me or turn me over to my master, and I will lead you to them." NIV 15 David asked him, “Can you lead me down to this raiding party?” He answered, “Swear to me before God that you will not kill me or hand me over to my master, and I will take you down to them.” CSB 16 So he led him, and there were the Amalekites, spread out over the entire area, eating, drinking, and celebrating because of the great amount of plunder they had taken from the land of the Philistines and the land of Judah. NIV 16 He led David down, and there they were, scattered over the countryside, eating, drinking and reveling because of the great amount of plunder they had taken from the land of the Philistines and from Judah.

CSB 20 He took all the sheep and cattle, which were driven ahead of the other livestock, and the people shouted, "This is David's plunder!" NIV 20 He took all the flocks and herds, and his men drove them ahead of the other livestock, saying, “This is David’s plunder.” CSB 21 When David came to the 200 men who had been too exhausted to go with him and had been left at the Wadi Besor, they came out to meet him and to meet the troops with him. When David approached the men, he greeted them, NIV 21 Then David came to the two hundred men who had been too exhausted to follow him and who were left behind at the Besor Valley. They came out to meet David and the men with him. As David and his men approached, he asked them how they were. CSB 22 but all the worthless men among those who had gone with David retorted, "Because they didn't go with us, we will not give any of the plunder we recovered to them except for each man's wife and children. They may take them and go." NIV 22 But all the evil men and troublemakers among David’s followers said, “Because they did not go out with us, we will not share with them the plunder we recovered. However, each man may take his wife and children and go.” CSB 23 But David said, "My brothers, you must not do this with what the Lord has given us. He protected us and handed over to us the raiders who came against us. NIV 23 David replied, “No, my brothers, you must not do that with what the LORD has given us. He has protected us and delivered into our hands the raiding party that came against us. CSB 24 Who can agree to your proposal? The share of the one who goes into battle is to be the same as the share of the one who remains with the supplies. They will share equally." NIV 24 Who will listen to what you say? The share of the man who stayed with the supplies is to be the same as that of him who went down to the battle. All will share alike.” CSB 25 And it has been so from that day forward. David established [this policy] as a law and an ordinance for Israel [and it continues] to this very day. NIV 25 David made this a statute and ordinance for Israel from that day to this.
