And the princes of the Philistineswerewrothwith him; and the princes of the Philistinessaidunto him, Makethisfellowreturn, that he may go again to his placewhichthouhastappointed him, and let him not go downwith us to battle, lest in the battle he be an adversary to us: for wherewithshould he reconcilehimselfunto his master? should it not be with the heads of these men?
