Poole's Outline of 1 Samuel 23: On the Run from Saul



David, inquiring of the Lord by Abiathar, rescueth Keilah, and goeth into it, 1-6. God showing him the coming of Saul, and treachery of the Kenites, 7-12, he flieth thence to the wilderness of Ziph, with his six hundred men, 13-15. Here Jonathan cometh to him, and reneweth the covenant of friendship with him, 16-18. The Ziphites discover him to Saul, 19-23; who pursueth him into the wilderness of Maon, 24-26. He is called away by a message that the Philistines had invaded the land, 27, 28. David dwelleth at En-gedi, 29.
