1 SAMUEL 21
1 David at Nob obtains of Ahimelech hallowed bread.
7 Doeg is present.
8 David takes Goliath's sword.
10 David at Gath feigns himself mad.
Nob appears to have been a sacerdotal city of Benjamin or
Ephraim. Jerome says, that in his time the ruins of it might
be seen not far from Diospolis or Lydda. But the Rabbins
assert that Jerusalem might be seen from this town. The
tabernacle resided some time at Nob; and after it was
destroyed, it was removed to Gibeon; "and the day of Nob and
Gibeon were fifty-seven years." Maimonides in
Bethhabbechirah, c. 1.

The whole of this is a gross falsehood; and which was attended
with the most fatal consequences. It is well known that from
all antiquity it was held no crime to tell a lie in order to
save life. Thus Diphilon [ .] "I hold
it right to tell a lie for safety: nothing should be avoided
to save life." A heathen may say or sing thus: but no
Christian can act thus and save his soul, though he may save

Jerome says there was a large town called Gath, in the way
from Eleutheropolis to Gaza; and Eusebius speaks of another
Gath, five miles from Eleutheropolis, towards Lydda, (and
consequently different from that mentioned by Jerome;) and
also of another Gath, between Jamnia and Antipatris. It
appears to have been the extreme boundary of the Philistine
territory in one direction, as Ekron was on the other, (ch.
14 7:14; 52 17:52,) and lay near Mareshah, (2 Ch 8 11:8. Mic 1:14,)
which agrees pretty well with the position assigned it by
Jerome. But Reland and Dr. Wells agree with Eusebius; and the
authors of the Universal History (b. i. c. 7) place it about
six miles form Jamnia, fourteen south of Joppa, and thirty-two
west of Jerusalem.
