1 Samuel 24 ©
David in a cave at En-gedi cutteth off Saul's skirt, but spareth his life: he urgeth this as a proof of his innocency. Saul acknowledgeth his fault, taketh an oath of David, and departeth.
David also arose afterward, and went out of the cave, and cried after Saul, saying, My lord the king. And when Saul looked behind him, David stooped with his face to the earth, and bowed himself.
Moreover, mmy father, see, yea, see the skirt of thy robe in my hand: for in that I cut off the skirt of thy robe, and killed thee not, know thou and see that nthere is neither evil nor transgression in mine hand, and I have not sinned against thee; yet thou ohuntest my soul to take it.
And thou hast shewed this day how that thou hast dealt well with me: *forasmuch as when the LORD had 5delivered me into thine hand, thou killedst me not.
For if a man find his enemy, will he let him go well away? wherefore the LORD reward thee good for that thou hast done unto me this day.
