For the king will hear and deliver his servant out of the hand of the man who would destroy me and my son together, away from the inheritance of God. Bible

“servant.” The Hebrew word is amah (#0519 אָמָה), which refers to a woman who is not free in one sense or another, generally a female slave, but perhaps, for example, a concubine.

“the inheritance of God.” That is, the land that her family inherited when the land was divided by lot (Josh. 14-19, esp. Josh. 14:1-2). Thus, the land her family got was recognized as the family’s inheritance from God. If a family died out without anyone to inherit its allotment, then the land went back to other members of the tribe.
