1 Samuel chapter 22

1
So David departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam; and when his brothers and all his father's household heard [of it], they went down there to him.
2
Everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him; and he became captain over them. Now there were about four hundred men with him.
3
And David went from there to Mizpah of Moab; and he said to the king of Moab, "Please let my father and my mother come [and stay] with you until I know what God will do for me."
4
Then he left them with the king of Moab; and they stayed with him all the time that David was in the stronghold.
5
The prophet Gad said to David, "Do not stay in the stronghold; depart, and go into the land of Judah." So David departed and went into the forest of Hereth.
6
Then Saul heard that David and the men who were with him had been discovered. Now Saul was sitting in Gibeah, under the tamarisk tree on the height with his spear in his hand, and all his servants were standing around him.
7
Saul said to his servants who stood around him, "Hear now, O Benjamites! Will the son of Jesse also give to all of you fields and vineyards? Will he make you all commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds?
8
"For all of you have conspired against me so that there is no one who discloses to me when my son makes [a covenant] with the son of Jesse, and there is none of you who is sorry for me or discloses to me that my son has stirred up my servant against me to lie in ambush, as [it is] this day."
9
Then Doeg the Edomite, who was standing by the servants of Saul, said, "I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech the son of Ahitub.
10
"He inquired of the LORD for him, gave him provisions, and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine."
11
Then the king sent someone to summon Ahimelech the priest, the son of Ahitub, and all his father's household, the priests who were in Nob; and all of them came to the king.
12
Saul said, "Listen now, son of Ahitub." And he answered, "Here I am, my lord."
13
Saul then said to him, "Why have you and the son of Jesse conspired against me, in that you have given him bread and a sword and have inquired of God for him, so that he would rise up against me by lying in ambush as [it is] this day?"
14
Then Ahimelech answered the king and said, "And who among all your servants is as faithful as David, even the king's son-in-law, who is captain over your guard, and is honored in your house?
15
"Did I [just] begin to inquire of God for him today? Far be it from me! Do not let the king impute anything to his servant [or] to any of the household of my father, for your servant knows nothing at all of this whole affair."
16
But the king said, "You shall surely die, Ahimelech, you and all your father's household!"
17
And the king said to the guards who were attending him, "Turn around and put the priests of the LORD to death, because their hand also is with David and because they knew that he was fleeing and did not reveal it to me." But the servants of the king were not willing to put forth their hands to attack the priests of the LORD.
18
Then the king said to Doeg, "You turn around and attack the priests." And Doeg the Edomite turned around and attacked the priests, and he killed that day eighty-five men who wore the linen ephod.
19
And he struck Nob the city of the priests with the edge of the sword, both men and women, children and infants; also oxen, donkeys, and sheep [he struck] with the edge of the sword.
20
But one son of Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, named Abiathar, escaped and fled after David.
21
Abiathar told David that Saul had killed the priests of the LORD.
22
Then David said to Abiathar, "I knew on that day, when Doeg the Edomite was there, that he would surely tell Saul. I have brought about [the death] of every person in your father's household.
23
"Stay with me; do not be afraid, for he who seeks my life seeks your life, for you are safe with me."

Psalm chapter 17

1
A Prayer of David. Hear a just cause, O LORD, give heed to my cry; Give ear to my prayer, which is not from deceitful lips.
2
Let my judgment come forth from Your presence; Let Your eyes look with equity.
3
You have tried my heart; You have visited [me] by night; You have tested me and You find nothing; I have purposed that my mouth will not transgress.
4
As for the deeds of men, by the word of Your lips I have kept from the paths of the violent.
5
My steps have held fast to Your paths. My feet have not slipped.
6
I have called upon You, for You will answer me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, hear my speech.
7
Wondrously show Your lovingkindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at Your right hand From those who rise up [against them].
8
Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings
9
From the wicked who despoil me, My deadly enemies who surround me.
10
They have closed their unfeeling [heart], With their mouth they speak proudly.
11
They have now surrounded us in our steps; They set their eyes to cast [us] down to the ground.
12
He is like a lion that is eager to tear, And as a young lion lurking in hiding places.
13
Arise, O LORD, confront him, bring him low; Deliver my soul from the wicked with Your sword,
14
From men with Your hand, O LORD, From men of the world, whose portion is in [this] life, And whose belly You fill with Your treasure; They are satisfied with children, And leave their abundance to their babes.
15
As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness; I will be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake.

Psalm chapter 35

1
[A Psalm] of David. Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me; Fight against those who fight against me.
2
Take hold of buckler and shield And rise up for my help.
3
Draw also the spear and the battle-axe to meet those who pursue me; Say to my soul, "I am your salvation."
4
Let those be ashamed and dishonored who seek my life; Let those be turned back and humiliated who devise evil against me.
5
Let them be like chaff before the wind, With the angel of the LORD driving [them] on.
6
Let their way be dark and slippery, With the angel of the LORD pursuing them.
7
For without cause they hid their net for me; Without cause they dug a pit for my soul.
8
Let destruction come upon him unawares, And let the net which he hid catch himself; Into that very destruction let him fall.
9
And my soul shall rejoice in the LORD; It shall exult in His salvation.
10
All my bones will say, "LORD, who is like You, Who delivers the afflicted from him who is too strong for him, And the afflicted and the needy from him who robs him?"
11
Malicious witnesses rise up; They ask me of things that I do not know.
12
They repay me evil for good, [To] the bereavement of my soul.
13
But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth; I humbled my soul with fasting, And my prayer kept returning to my bosom.
14
I went about as though it were my friend or brother; I bowed down mourning, as one who sorrows for a mother.
15
But at my stumbling they rejoiced and gathered themselves together; The smiters whom I did not know gathered together against me, They slandered me without ceasing.
16
Like godless jesters at a feast, They gnashed at me with their teeth.
17
Lord, how long will You look on? Rescue my soul from their ravages, My only [life] from the lions.
18
I will give You thanks in the great congregation; I will praise You among a mighty throng.
19
Do not let those who are wrongfully my enemies rejoice over me; Nor let those who hate me without cause wink maliciously.
20
For they do not speak peace, But they devise deceitful words against those who are quiet in the land.
21
They opened their mouth wide against me; They said, "Aha, aha, our eyes have seen it!"
22
You have seen it, O LORD, do not keep silent; O Lord, do not be far from me.
23
Stir up Yourself, and awake to my right And to my cause, my God and my Lord.
24
Judge me, O LORD my God, according to Your righteousness, And do not let them rejoice over me.
25
Do not let them say in their heart, "Aha, our desire!" Do not let them say, "We have swallowed him up!"
26
Let those be ashamed and humiliated altogether who rejoice at my distress; Let those be clothed with shame and dishonor who magnify themselves over me.
27
Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, "The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant."
28
And my tongue shall declare Your righteousness [And] Your praise all day long.

Matthew chapter 6

1
"Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven.
2
"So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
3
"But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
4
so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees [what is done] in secret will reward you.
5
"When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
6
"But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees [what is done] in secret will reward you.
7
"And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.
8
"So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
9
"Pray, then, in this way: 'Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
10
'Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
11
'Give us this day our daily bread.
12
'And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13
'And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen].'
14
"For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15
"But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.
16
"Whenever you fast, do not put on a gloomy face as the hypocrites [do], for they neglect their appearance so that they will be noticed by men when they are fasting. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
17
"But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face
18
so that your fasting will not be noticed by men, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees [what is done] in secret will reward you.
19
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
20
"But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;
21
for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22
"The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.
23
"But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
24
"No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.
25
"For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, [as to] what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, [as to] what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
26
"Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and [yet] your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?
27
"And who of you by being worried can add a [single] hour to his life?
28
"And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin,
29
yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.
30
"But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is [alive] today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, [will He] not much more [clothe] you? You of little faith!
31
"Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?'
32
"For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
33
"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
34
"So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
