104 - David's victory.

Kathleen's thoughts

1 Samuel 22, 23
Psalm 142: 1-7 141: 1-10 64: 1-10, 35: 1-28

David leaves Gath and takes refuge in the cave of Adullam and his brothers and his father's whole family join him there.

David continues to write his Psalms with prayer for help 142 & 35, protection in 64 and evening prayer 141.

1 Samuel 22: 2 In addition, every man who was desperate, in deb or discontented rallied around him, and he became their leader. About 400 men were with him.
1 Chronicles 12: 16-18 says that other Benjaminites and men from Judah also went to David at the stronghold.

Saul is so eaten up with jealousy that he calls Ahimelech the priest and his father's whole family who were priests in Nob. All of them came to the king. He questioned Ahimelech "why did you and Jess's son conspire against me? You gave him bread and a sword and inquired of God for him, so he could rise up against me and wait in ambush, as is the case today.
Ahimelec replied to the king telling him that David is a faithful servant the king's son-in-law and captain of your bodyguard and honoured in your house and he did not know any of this.
So Saul said "You will die, Ahimelech - you and your father's whole family" The kind ordered the bodyguards to kill them but they refused so he gave Doeg to execute the priests! so he killed 85 men who wore linen ephods He also struck down Nob, the city of the priests, with the sword both men and women, children and infants oxen donkeys and sheep.
The son of Ahimelech Abiathar escaped and went to David.

The Lord sends David to save Keilah.

Abiathar tells David about Saul and Doeg killing the priests of the Lord Then David said Don't be afraid, for the one who wants to take my life wants to take your life. You will be safe with me
