1 Samuel 23:21-23*

From Elie Assis, Chiasmus in Biblical Narrative: Rhetoric of characterisation, Prooftexts, Volume 22, Number 3, 2002, pp. 273-304

A. And Saul said, Blessed be ye of the LORD; for ye have compassion on me. 22 Go, I pray you,

B. prepare (kun)  yet,

C. and know and see his place where his haunt is, and who hath seen him there:

D. for it is told me that he dealeth very subtilly.

C’. 23 See therefore, and take knowledge of all the lurking places where he hideth himself,

B’. and come ye again to me with the certainty (kun),

A’. and I will go with you: and it shall come to pass, if he be in the land, that I will search him out throughout all the thousands of Judah.
