11 Then the king sent to call Ahimelech the priest, the son of Ahitub, and all his father’s house, the priests that were in lNob: and they came all of them to the king. 12 And Saul said, Hear now, thou son of Ahitub. And he answered, †Here I am, my lord. 13 And Saul said unto him, Why have ye conspired against me, thou and the son of Jesse, in that thou hast given him bread, and a sword, and hast ninquired of God for him, that he should rise against me, pto lie in wait, as at this day? 14 Then Ahimelech answered the king, and said, And who is so faithful among all thy servants as David, which is the king’s son in law, and goeth at thy bidding, and is honourable in thine house? 15 Did I then begin to ninquire of God for him? be it far from me: let not the king impute any thing unto his servant, nor to all the house of my father: for thy servant knew nothing of all this, †less or more. 16 And the king said, Thou shalt surely die, Ahimelech, thou, and all thy father’s house.
