Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading. Ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
He knows it. You are forgiven.
Ask Him to help you embrace that truth to live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.
And What Do I Do With That?

1. One day news came to David that the Philistines were at Keilah stealing grain from the threshing floors.
2. David asked the LORD, "Should I go and attack them?"
"Yes, go and save Keilah," The LORD told him.
3. But David's men said, "We're afraid even here in Judah. We certainly don't want to go to Keilah to fight the whole Philistine army!"
4. So Daivd asked the LORD again, and again the LORD replied, "Go down to Keilah, for I will help you conquer the Philistines."
5. So David and his men went to Keilah. They slaughtered the Philistines and took all their livestock and rescued the people of Keilah.
6. Now when Abiathar son of Ahimelech fled to David at Keilah, he brought the ephod with him.
7. Saul soon learned that David was at Keilah. "Good!" he exclaimed. "We've got him now! God has handed him over to me for he has trapped himself in a walled town!"
8. So Saul mobilized his entire army to march to Keilah and besiege David and his men.
9. But David learned of Saul's plan and told Abiathar the priest to bring the ephod and ask the LORD what he should do.
10. Then David prayed, "O LORD, God of Israel, I have heard that Saul is planning to come and destroy Keilah because I am here.
11. Will the leaders of Keilah betray me to him? And will Saul actually come as I have heard? O LORD, God of Isreal, please tell me.
And the LORD said, "He will come."
12. Again David asked, "Will the leaders of Keilah betray me and my men to Saul?"
And the LORD replied, "Yes, they will betray you."'
