Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1860) Digital restoration by gldburger.

So Saul took three thousand chosen men from all Israel and set out to look for David and his men near the Crags of the Wild Goats. He came to the sheep pens along the way; a cave was there and Saul went in to relieve himself. David and his men were far back in the cave. The men said, "This is the day God spoke of when he said to you, 'I will give your enemy into your hands for you to deal with as you wish.' " Then David crept up unnoticed and cut off a corner of Saul's robe. Afterward, David was conscience-stricken for having cut off a corner of his robe. He said to his men, "God forbid that I should do such a thing to my master, God's anointed, or lift my hand against him; for he is the anointed of God." David did not allow his men to attack Saul. Saul left the cave and went his way. Then David went out of the cave and called out to Saul, "My lord the king!" When Saul looked behind him, David bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground. He said to Saul, "Why do you listen when men say, 'David is bent on harming you'? This day you have seen with your own eyes how God delivered you into my hands in the cave. Some urged me to kill you, but I spared you; I said, 'I will not lift my hand against my master, because he is God's anointed.' My father, look at this piece of your robe in my hand! I cut off the corner of your robe but did not kill you. Now understand that I am not guilty of wrongdoing or rebellion. I have not wronged you, but you are hunting me down to take my life. May God judge between you and me. And may God avenge the wrongs you have done to me, but my hand will not touch you. As the old saying goes, 'From evildoers come evil deeds,' so my hand will not touch you. Samuel 24: 1-13
