1 Samuel 26:18-20 Common English Bible (CEB)

18 Why,” David continued, “is my master chasing me, his servant? What have I done and what wrong am I guilty of? 19 My master the king, please listen to what your servant has to say. If it is the Lord who has incited you against me, then let him accept an offering! But if human beings have done it, then let them be cursed before the Lord because they have now driven me off, keeping me from sharing in the Lord’s inheritance. ‘Go!’ they tell me. ‘Worship other gods!’ 20 Don’t let my blood spill on the ground apart from the Lord’s presence, because the king of Israel has come out looking for a single flea[a] like someone hunting a partridge[b] in the mountains.”


  1. 1 Samuel 26:20 Cf 24:14; LXX my life
  2. 1 Samuel 26:20 Or a caller, Heb sounds like verb to shout or call in 26:14.
