1Sa 27:1 And David said in his heart, I shall now perish one day by the hand of Saul. Nothing is better for me than that escaping I escape to the land of the Philistines. And Saul will despair of me, to still seek me in all the border of Israel. And I shall escape out of his hand.
1Sa 27:2 And David rose up and crossed over, he and six hundred men who were with him, to Achish the son of Maoch, the king of Gath.
1Sa 27:3 And David lived with Achish in Gath, he and his men, each one and his household: David and his two wives, Ahinoam of Jezreel, and Abigail the former wife of Nabal of Carmel.
1Sa 27:4 And it was told to Saul that David had fled to Gath, and he did not seek for him any more.
1Sa 27:5 And David said to Achish, Please, if I have found favor in your eyes, they shall give to me a place in one of the cities of the field, and I shall live there. Yea, why should your servant live in the royal city with you?
1Sa 27:6 And Achish gave Ziklag to him in that day. Therefore, Ziklag has been counted to the kings of Judah until this day.
1Sa 27:7 And the number of days which David lived in the field of the Philistines was a year and four months.
1Sa 27:8 And David and his men went up and attacked the Geshurites, and the Gezrites, and the Amalekites. For they were the ones living in the land from the past days, as you come into Shur and into the land of Egypt.
1Sa 27:9 And David struck the land, and did not keep alive man, or woman, and took sheep, and oxen, and asses, and camels, and clothing, and turned back and came to Achish.
1Sa 27:10 And Achish said, Did you not make raids today? And David said, Against the south of Judah, and against the south of the Jerahmeelites, and to the south of the Kenites.
1Sa 27:11 David did not keep alive man or woman to bring news to Gath, saying, Lest they speak against us, saying, So David has done; And so has been his custom all the days that he has lived in the fields of the Philistines.
1Sa 27:12 And Achish trusted David, saying, Surely he has made himself to be hated among his people in Israel, and has become my servant forever.
