The priest answered David, and said, "There is no common bread under my hand, but there is holy bread; if only the young men have kept themselves from women."read more.
David answered the priest, and said to him, "Truly, women have been kept from us about these three days. When I came out, the vessels of the young men were holy, though it was but a common journey.

If you will take that, take it; for there is no other except that here." David said, "There is none like that. Give it to me." David arose, and fled that day for fear of Saul, and went to Achish the king of Gath. The servants of Achish said to him, "Isn't this David the king of the land?
