1 Samuel 27
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And David said in his heart: “Now if I fall one day into the hands of Shaul, it is no good for me unless I escape to the land of the Philistines, and Shaul will labor to seek me again in all the borders of Israel, and I shall be delivered from his hands” 2And David arose and he passed by, he and the six hundred men who were with him to Akish son of Maaka, King of Gath 3And David dwelt with Akish in Gath, he and his men and the men of the house of David and his two wives, Akhinam, who was from Yizrael, and Abigal, the wife of Nabal, who was from Karmela 4And they revealed to Shaul that David came down to Gath, and he did not seek after him again

5And David said to Akish: “If I have found friendship in your eyes, give to me a place in one of the towns that is in the wilderness, and I shall dwell there, and your Servant will not dwell in the city of the kingdom with you” 6And Akish gave to him on that day Tsenqlag, because of this Tsenqlag has belonged to the King of Yehuda until today 7And the number of days when David dwelt in the land of the Philistines was a season to season and four months

8And David went up and his men, and they walked to Gashur and to Gedula and to Amaleq, because , these had been inhabitants of the land from ancient time, and they walked to Gashur and unto the land of Egypt 9And David put the land to the sword and he did not save a man or a woman, and he took sheep and bulls and male donkeys and camels and garments, and David returned and came to Akish 10And Akish said to David: “Where were you today?” And David said: “Against the south of Yehuda and against the south of Yarkhmel and against the south of Qayla” 11And David did not save a man or a woman, so that he would come to Gath saying, “They will not talk about us”, and they would say: “Thus David did”, and this was his custom all the days when David dwelt in the land of the Philistines" 12And Akish trusted David, and he said, “He has certainly done evil to his people Israel; behold he is a Servant to me forever!”
