entering into a town that hath gates and bars.
SA1 23:8 And Saul called all the people together to war, to go down to
Keilah, to besiege David and his men.
SA1 23:9 And David knew that Saul secretly practised mischief against
him; and he said to Abiathar the priest, Bring hither the ephod.
SA1 23:10 Then said David, O LORD God of Israel, thy servant hath
certainly heard that Saul seeketh to come to Keilah, to destroy the city
for my sake.
SA1 23:11 Will the men of Keilah deliver me up into his hand? will Saul
come down, as thy servant hath heard? O LORD God of Israel, I beseech
thee, tell thy servant. And the LORD said, He will come down.
