He said to his men, eThe Lord forbid that I should do this thing to my lord, the Lord's anointed, to put out my hand against him, seeing he is fthe Lord's anointed.


But David said to Abishai, Do not destroy him, for who can put out his hand cagainst the Lord's anointed and be guiltless?


11 hThe Lord forbid that I should put out my hand against the Lord's anointed. But take now the spear that is iat his head and the jar of water, and let us go.


16 This thing that you have done is not good. kAs the Lord lives, you deserve to die, because you have not kept watch over your lord, the Lord's anointed. And now see where the king's spear is and the jar of water that was lat his head.


14 David said to him, How is it you were not kafraid to put out your hand to destroy lthe Lord's anointed?


16 And David said to him, nYour blood be on your head, for your own mouth has testified against you, saying, I have killed othe Lord's anointed.
