David was hurrying to get away from Saul while Saul and his men were closing in on David and his men to capture them. 27 Then a messenger came to Saul with this news: "Come quickly, because the Philistines have made a raid on the land!" 28 So Saul turned around from pursuing David and went to meet the Philistines. Therefore, they call that place the Rock of Escape.
