Context Readings

David Again Spares Saul

10 David said furthermore, As the LORD lives, if the LORD does not smite him or his day comes to die or he descends into battle and perishes, 11 The Lord forbid that I should stretch out my hand against the Lord’s anointed; but now please take the spear that is at his head and the jug of water, and let us go.” 12 So David took the spear and the cruse of water that were at Saul's head, and they went, and no one saw it nor knew it neither awaked, for they were all asleep because a deep sleep from the LORD had fallen upon them.
