16 And the king said, Thou shalt surely die, Ahimelech, thou, and all thy father’s house. 17 And the king said unto the ||footmen that stood about him, Turn, and slay the priests of the Lord; because their hand also is with David, and because they knew when he fled, and did not shew it to me. But the servants of the king would not put forth their hand to fall upon the priests of the Lord. 18 And the king said to Doeg, Turn thou, and fall upon the priests. And Doeg the Edomite turned, and he fell upon the priests, and qslew on that day fourscore and five persons that rdid wear a linen ephod. 19 And lNob, the city of the priests, smote he with the edge of the sword, sboth men and women, children and sucklings, and oxen, and asses, and sheep, with the edge of the sword.
