Bible: 1 Samuel 23:10-13

23:10 Then David said, “O Lord God of Israel, your servant has clearly heard that Saul is planning 1  to come to Keilah to destroy the city because of me. 23:11 Will the leaders of Keilah deliver me into his hand? Will Saul come down as your servant has heard? O Lord God of Israel, please inform your servant!”

Then the Lord said, “He will come down.” 23:12 David asked, “Will the leaders of Keilah deliver me and my men into Saul’s hand?” The Lord said, “They will deliver you over.”

23:13 So David and his men, who numbered about six hundred, set out and left Keilah; they moved around from one place to another. 2  When told that David had escaped from Keilah, Saul called a halt to his expedition.
