David going with the Philistines is sent back by their princes.

[1] Now all the troops of the Philistines were gathered together to Aphec: and Israel also camped by the fountain which is in Jezrahel.
Congregata sunt ergo Philisthiim universa agmina in Aphec : sed et Israel castrametatus est super fontem, qui erat in Jezrahel.

[2] And the lords of the Philistines marched with their hundreds and their thousands: but David and his men were in the rear with Achis.
Et satrapae quidem Philisthiim incedebant in centuriis et millibus : David autem et viri ejus erant in novissimo agmine cum Achis.

[3] And the princes of the Philistines said to Achis: What mean these Hebrews? And Achis said to the princes of the Philistines: Do you not know David, who was the servant of Saul the king of Israel, and hath been with me many days, or years, and I have found no fault in him, since the day that he fled over to me until this day?
Dixeruntque principes Philisthiim ad Achis : Quid sibi volunt Hebraei isti? Et ait Achis ad principes Philisthiim : Num ignoratis David, qui fuit servus Saul regis Israel, et est apud me multis diebus, vel annis, et non inveni in eo quidquam ex die qua transfugit ad me, usque ad diem hanc?

[4] But the princes of the Philistines were angry with him, and they said to him: Let this man return, and abide in his place, which thou hast appointed him, and let him not go down with us to battle, lest he be an adversary to us, when we shall begin to fight: for how can he otherwise appease his master, but with our heads?
Irati sunt autem adversus eum principes Philisthiim, et dixerunt ei : Revertatur vir iste, et sedeat in loco suo, in quo constituisti eum, et non descendat nobiscum in praelium, ne fiat nobis adversarius, cum praeliari coeperimus : quomodo enim aliter poterit placare dominum suum, nisi in capitibus nostris?

[5] Is not this David, to whom they sung in their dances, saying: Saul slew his thousands, and David his ten thousands?
Nonne iste est David, cui cantabant in choris, dicentes : Percussit Saul in millibus suis, et David in decem millibus suis?

[6] Then Achis called David, and said to him: As the Lord liveth, thou art upright and good in my sight: and so is thy going out, and thy coming in with me in the army: and I have not found my evil in thee, since the day that thou camest to me unto this day: but thou pleasest not the lords.
Vocavit ergo Achis David, et ait ei : Vivit Dominus, quia rectus es tu, et bonus in conspectu meo : et exitus tuus, et introitus tuus mecum est in castris : et non inveni in te quidquam mali ex die qua venisti ad me, usque in diem hanc : sed satrapis non places.

[7] Return therefore, and go in peace, and offend not the eyes of the princes of the Philistines.
Revertere ergo, et vade in pace, et non offendas oculos satraparum Philisthiim.

[8] And David said to Achis: But what have I done, and what hast thou found in me thy servant, from the day that I have been in thy sight until this day, that I may not go and fight against the enemies of my lord the king?
Dixitque David ad Achis : Quid enim feci, et quid invenisti in me servo tuo, a die qua fui in conspectu tuo in diem hanc, ut non veniam, et pugnem contra inimicos domini mei regis?

[9] And Achis answering said to David: I know that thou art good in my sight, as an angel of God: but the princes of the Philistines have said: He shall not go up with us to the battle.
Respondens autem Achis, locutus est ad David : Scio quia bonus es tu in oculis meis, sicut angelus Dei : sed principes Philisthinorum dixerunt : Non ascendet nobiscum in praelium.

[10] Therefore arise in the morning, thou, and the servants of thy lord, who came with thee: and when you are up before day, and it shall begin to be light, go on your way.
Igitur consurge mane tu, et servi domini tui, qui venerunt tecum : et cum de nocte surrexeritis, et coeperit dilucescere, pergite.

[11] So David and his men arose in the night, that they might set forward in the morning, and returned to the land of the Philistines: and the Philistines went up to Jezrahel.
Surrexit itaque de nocte David ipse et viri ejus, ut proficiscerentur mane, et reverterentur ad terram Philisthiim : Philisthiim autem ascenderunt in Jezrahel.
