c And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him. So he became captain over them. And there were about d four hundred men with him.
Then David went from there to Mizpah of e Moab; and he said to the king of Moab, "Please let my father and mother come here with you, till I know what God will do for me."
So he brought them before the king of Moab, and they dwelt with him all the time that David was in the stronghold.
Now the prophet f Gad said to David, "Do not stay in the stronghold; depart, and go to the land of Judah." So David departed and went into the forest of Hereth.

I WILL bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by.
I CRY out to the LORD with my voice; With my voice to the LORD I make my supplication.
The king of Libnah, one; the king of Adullam, one.
Jarmuth, Adullam, Socoh, Azekah.
