1 Samuel 21:3-5 Common English Bible (CEB)

Now what do you have here with you? Give me five loaves of bread or whatever you can find.”

“I don’t have any regular bread on hand,” the priest answered David, “just holy bread—but only if your troops have abstained from sexual activity.”

“Definitely,” David answered the priest. “Whenever I go out to war, women are off-limits; that’s our standard operating procedure. Even on regular missions, the men’s gear is[a] kept holy. That’s even more true today, with the mission holy along with the gear.”[b]
