29:3 Then said the princes of the Philistines, What [do] these
 Hebrews [here]? And Achish said to the princes of the
 Philistines, [Is] not this David, the servant of Saul the king
 of Israel, who hath been with me these days, or these years,

29:4 And the princes of the Philistines were wroth with him; and
 the princes of the Philistines said to him, Make this man
 return, that he may go again to his place which thou hast
 appointed him, and let him not go down with us to battle, lest
 in the battle he should be an adversary to us: for with what
 would he reconcile himself to his master? [would it] not [be]

29:7 Therefore now return, and go in peace, that thou displease
 not the lords of the Philistines.
29:8 And David said to Achish, But what have I done? and what

 thee to this day, that I may not go and fight against the
 enemies of my lord the king.
29:9 And Achish answered and said to David, I know that thou

 risen early in the morning, and have light, depart.
29:11 So David and his men rose early to depart in the morning,
 to return into the land of the Philistines. And the Philistines
 went up to Jezreel.
