1 Samuel 21-22. The Murder of the Priests of Nob, David becomes a Mob Boss. David flees to the religious center of the nation, seeking shelter and support. Lying to the High Priest, David acquires both food and a weapon. David acquired holy bread, which was permissible to him. We reference the Christian Bible's rendition of this episode and question its accuracy. David provided plausible deniability to the Priests, by lying to them. David flees the country, but uses subterfuge to protect himself. The insanity he feigns reminds the observers of demonic possession, thus they cast him out. David then flees east and gathers to him 400 outcast men. His family flees the country for their safety. Then the Priests of Nob are slandered before a deeply paranoid King Saul. The Priest protests his innocence, yet the King in a state of delusional paranoia orders the murder of all the Priests and their families. No Israelite dares to lay a hand against the Priests of God, but a foreigner does. The man who slandered and lied about them also murders them all. Lessons about modern times and how to deal with repressive government regimes.
