1 Samuel 19:5
And, when he put his life in his hand, and smote the Philistine, and Yahweh wrought a great victory for all Israel, thou sawest, and didst rejoice. Wherefore, then, shouldst thou sin against innocent blood by putting David to death, without cause?
Deliver thou such as are being led forth to death, and, them who are tottering to slaughter, oh that thou wouldst hold back!
Open thy mouth for the dumb, for the cause of all the children of the departed.
Surely, our law, doth not judge the man, unless it hear first from him, and get to know what he is doing?
But, he, said - Indeed! what evil hath he done? But, they, vehemently, were crying aloud, saying - Let him be crucified!
But, he, the third time, said unto them - Why! what base thing hath this man done? Nothing worthy of death, found I in him. Chastising him, then, I will release him!
