The Lord will repay each man for his righteousness and his faithfulness; for the Lord delivered you into my hand today, but I refused to stretch out my hand against the Lord’s anointed.
So he said to his men, “Far be it from me because of the Lord that I should do this thing to my lord, the Lord’s anointed, to stretch out my hand against him, since he is the Lord’s anointed.”
But David said to Abishai, “Do not destroy him, for who can stretch out his hand against the Lord’s anointed and be without guilt?”
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.”
then hear in heaven and act and judge Your servants, condemning the wicked by bringing his way on his own head and justifying the righteous by giving him according to his righteousness.
Remember me for this, O my God, and do not blot out my loyal deeds which I have performed for the house of my God and its services.
The Lord judges the peoples;
Vindicate me, O Lord, according to my righteousness and my integrity that is in me.
The Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness;
According to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me.
And lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord,
For You recompense a man according to his work.
