David's Oath to Saul

16And it came to pass, when David had made an end of speaking these words to Saul, that Saul said, Is this your voice, my son David? And Saul lifted up his voice, and wept. 17And he said to David, You are more righteous than I: for you have rewarded me good, whereas I have rewarded you evil. 18And you have showed this day how that you have dealt well with me: for as much as when the LORD had delivered me into your hand, you killed me not. 19For if a man find his enemy, will he let him go well away? why the LORD reward you good for that you have done to me this day. 20And now, behold, I know well that you shall surely be king, and that the kingdom of Israel shall be established in your hand. 21Swear now therefore to me by the LORD, that you will not cut off my seed after me, and that you will not destroy my name out of my father's house. 22And David swore to Saul. And Saul went home; but David and his men got them up to the hold.
