And some men from Manasseh defected to David when he went with the Philistines to fight against Saul (yet they did not help them fight Saul because the lords of the Philistines sent David away after taking counsel, saying, “If he defects to his master Saul it will cost us our heads”). Bible

“David.” The Hebrew text says “him,” but the REV added “David” for clarity.
