||abiit ergo inde David et fugit in speluncam Odollam quod cum audissent fratres eius et omnis domus patris eius descenderunt ad eum illuc
David therefore went from thence, and fled to the cave of Odollam. And when his brethren, and all his father's house, had heard of it, they went down to him thither.

||et audivit Saul quod apparuisset David et viri qui erant cum eo Saul autem cum maneret in Gabaa et esset in nemore quod est in Rama hastam manu tenens cunctique socii eius circumstarent eum
And SauI heard that David was seen, and the men that were with him. Now whilst Saul abode in Gabaa, and was in the wood, which is by Rama, having his spear in his hand, and all his servants were standing about him,
||ait ad servos suos qui adsistebant ei audite filii Iemini numquid omnibus vobis dabit filius Isai agros et vineas et universos vos faciet tribunos et centuriones
He said to his servants that stood about him: Hear me now, ye sons of Jemini: will the son of Isai give every one of you fields, and vineyards, and make you all tribunes, and centurions:
||quoniam coniurastis omnes adversum me et non est qui mihi renuntiet maxime cum et filius meus foedus iunxerit cum filio Isai non est qui vicem meam doleat ex vobis nec qui adnuntiet mihi eo quod suscitaverit filius meus servum meum adversum me insidiantem mihi usque hodie
That all of you have conspired against me, and there is no one to inform me, especially when even my son hath entered into league with the son of Isai? There is not one of you that pitieth my case, nor that giveth me any information: because my son hath raised up my servant against me, plotting against me to this day.
||respondens autem Doec Idumeus qui adsistebat et erat primus inter servos Saul vidi inquit filium Isai in Nobe apud Ahimelech filium Achitob
And Doeg, the Edomite, who stood by, and was the chief among the servants of Saul, answering, said: I saw the son of Isai, in Nobe, with Achimelech, the son of Achitob, the priest.

||misit ergo rex ad accersiendum Ahimelech filium Achitob sacerdotem et omnem domum patris eius sacerdotum qui erant in Nobe qui venerunt universi ad regem
Then the king sent to call for Achimelech, the priest, the son of Achitob, and all his father's house, the priests that were in Nobe, and they came all of them to the king.
||et ait Saul audi fili Achitob qui respondit praesto sum domine
And Saul said to Achimelech: Hear, thou son of Achitob. He answered: Here I am, my lord.
||dixitque ad eum Saul quare coniurastis adversum me tu et filius Isai et dedisti ei panes et gladium et consuluisti pro eo Deum ut consurgeret adversum me insidiator usque hodie permanens
And Saul said to him: Why have you conspired against me, thou, and the son of Isai, and thou hast given him bread and a sword, and hast consulted the Lord for him, that he should rise up against me, continuing a traitor to this day.
||respondensque Ahimelech regi ait et quis in omnibus servis tuis sicut David fidelis et gener regis et pergens ad imperium tuum et gloriosus in domo tua
And Achimelech answering the king, said: And who amongst all thy servants is so faithful as David, who is the king's son in law, and goeth forth at thy bidding, and is honourable in thy house?
||num hodie coepi consulere pro eo Deum absit hoc a me ne suspicetur rex adversus servum suum rem huiuscemodi in universa domo patris mei non enim scivit servus tuus quicquam super hoc negotio vel modicum vel grande
Did I begin to day to consult the Lord for him? far be this from me: let not the king suspect such a thing against his servant, or any one in all my father's house: for thy servant knew nothing of this matter, either little or great.
||dixitque rex morte morieris Ahimelech tu et omnis domus patris tui
And the king said: Dying thou shalt die, Achimelech, thou and all thy father's house.
||et ait rex emissariis qui circumstabant eum convertimini et interficite sacerdotes Domini nam manus eorum cum David est scientes quod fugisset non indicaverunt mihi noluerunt autem servi regis extendere manum suam in sacerdotes Domini
And the king said to the messengers that stood about him: Turn, and kill the priests of the Lord, for their hand is with David, because they knew that he was fled, and they told it not to me. And the king'sservants would not put forth their hands against the priests of the Lord.
||et ait rex Doec convertere tu et inrue in sacerdotes conversusque Doec Idumeus inruit in sacerdotes et trucidavit in die illa octoginta quinque viros vestitos ephod lineo
And the king said to Doeg: Turn thou, and fall upon the priests. And Doeg, the Edomite, turned, and fell upon the priests, and slew in that day eighty-five men that wore the linen ephod.
||Nobe autem civitatem sacerdotum percussit in ore gladii viros et mulieres parvulos et lactantes bovem et asinum et ovem in ore gladii
And Nobe, the city of the priests, he smote with the edge of the sword, both men and women, children and sucklings, and ox, and ass, and sheep, with the edge of the sword.
||evadens autem unus filius Ahimelech filii Achitob cuius nomen erat Abiathar fugit ad David
But one of the sons of Achimelech, the son of Achitob, whose name was Abiathar, escaped, and fled to David,
||et adnuntiavit ei quod occidisset Saul sacerdotes Domini
And told him that Saul had slain the priests of the Lord.
||et ait David ad Abiathar sciebam in die illa quod cum ibi esset Doec Idumeus procul dubio adnuntiaret Saul ego sum reus omnium animarum patris tui
And David said to Abiathar: I knew that day when Doeg, the Edomite, was there, that without doubt he would tell Saul: I have been the occasion of the death of all the souls of thy father's house.
||mane mecum ne timeas si quis quaesierit animam meam quaeret et animam tuam mecumque servaberis
Abide thou with me, fear not: for he that seeketh my life, seeketh thy life also, and with me thou shalt be saved.
