1 Samuel 26:5-7
Contemporary English Version
5 Then he sneaked up to Saul’s camp. He noticed that Saul and his army commander Abner the son of Ner were sleeping in the middle of the camp, with soldiers sleeping all around them. 6 David asked Ahimelech the Hittite and Joab’s brother Abishai,[a] “Which one of you will go with me into Saul’s camp?”
“I will!” Abishai answered.
7 That same night, David and Abishai crept into the camp. Saul was sleeping, and his spear was stuck in the ground not far from his head. Abner and the soldiers were sound asleep all around him.Read full chapter
