Divine Protection – 1st Samuel 19

1 Samuel 19:1 And Saul spake to Jonathan his son, and to all his  servants, that they should kill David. 

1 Samuel 19:2 But Jonathan  Saul’s son delighted much in David: and Jonathan told  David, saying, Saul my father seeketh to kill thee: now  therefore, I pray thee, take heed to thyself until the morning,  and abide in a secret place, and hide thyself: 

1 Samuel 19:3 And I  will go out and stand beside my father in the field where  thou art, and I will commune with my father of thee; and  what I see, that I will tell thee.  

1 Samuel 19:4 And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his  father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his  servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against  thee, and because his works have been to thee-ward very  good: 

1 Samuel 19:5 For he did put his life in his hand, and slew  the Philistine, and the LORD wrought a great salvation for  all Israel: thou sawest it, and didst rejoice: wherefore then  wilt thou sin against innocent blood, to slay David without a  cause? 

1 Samuel 19:6 And Saul hearkened unto the voice of  Jonathan: and Saul sware, As the LORD liveth, he shall  not be slain. 

1st Samuel

1 Samuel 19:7 And Jonathan called David, and  Jonathan shewed him all those things. And Jonathan  brought David to Saul, and he was in his presence, as in  times past.  

1 Samuel 19:8 And there was war again: and David went out, and  fought with the Philistines, and slew them with a great  slaughter; and they fled from him. 

1 Samuel 19:9 And the evil spirit  from the LORD was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with  his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.   

1 Samuel 19:10 And Saul sought to smite David even to the wall  with the javelin; but he slipped away out of Saul’s presence,  and he smote the javelin into the wall: and David fled, and  escaped that night. 

1 Samuel 19:11 Saul also sent messengers unto  David’s house, to watch him, and to slay him in the  morning: and Michal David’s wife told him, saying, If thou  save not thy life to night, to morrow thou shalt be slain.  

1 Samuel 19:12 So Michal let David down through a window:  and he went, and fled, and escaped. 

1 Samuel 19:13 And Michal  took an image, and laid it in the bed, and put a pillow of  goats hair for his bolster, and covered it with a cloth.  

1 Samuel 19:14 And when Saul sent messengers to take David, she  said, He is sick. 

1 Samuel 19:15 And Saul sent the messengers  again to see David, saying, Bring him up to me 
in the bed,  that I may slay him. 

1 Samuel 19:16 And when the messengers  were come in, behold, there was an image in the bed, with  a pillow of goats’ hair for his bolster. 

1 Samuel 19:17 And Saul  said unto Michal, Why hast thou deceived me so, and sent  away mine enemy, that he is escaped? And Michal  answered Saul, He said unto me, Let me go; why should I  kill thee?  

1 Samuel 19:18 So David fled, and escaped, and came to Samuel  to Ramah, and told him all that Saul had done to him. And  he and Samuel went and dwelt in Naioth. 

1 Samuel 19:19 And it  was told Saul, saying, Behold, David is at Naioth in  Ramah. 

1 Samuel 19:20 And Saul sent messengers to take David:  and when they saw the company of the prophets  prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over  them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul,  and they also prophesied. 

1 Samuel 19:21 And when it was told  Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied  likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time,  and they prophesied also. 

1 Samuel 19:22 Then went he also to  Ramah, and came to a great well that is in Sechu: and he  asked and said, Where are Samuel and David? And one  said, Behold, they be at Naioth in Ramah. 

1 Samuel 19:23 And he  went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the Spirit of God was  upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he  came to Naioth in Ramah. 

1 Samuel 19:24 And he stript off his  clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner,  and lay down naked all that day and all that night.  Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?  KJV
