4 / Ebr. in the sides.

5 c Here we se how ready we are to hasten Gods promes, if the occasion serue neuer so litle.

6 d For seing it was his owne priuate cause, he repented that he had touched his enemie.

10 c Contrary to the false report of them that said, Dauid was Sauls enemie, he proueth him selfe to be his friend.

22 ! He causeth Dauid to sweare vnto him to be fauorable to his.
