5 Then David arose, and came to the place where Saul had pitched, and when David beheld the place where Saul lay, and Abner the son of Ner which was his chief captain, (for Saul lay in the fort, and the people pitched round about him.)
6 Then spake David, and said to Ahimelech the [a]Hittite, and to Abishai the son of Zeruiah, brother to [b]Joab, saying, Who will go down with me to Saul to the host? Then Abishai said, I will go down with thee.
7 So David and Abishai came down to the people by night: and behold, Saul lay sleeping within the fort, and his spear did stick in the ground at his [c]head: and Abner and the people lay round about him.
