David secures a place of safety for his family in Moab, and then returns to Judah at the direction of the seer Gad. Meanwhile, Doeg informs King Saul about the High Priest Ahimelech’s aid to David. Saul orders the High Priest and all the other priests killed as traitors. David realizes it was his presence there that caused the murders. He writes Psalm 52 in condemnation of Doeg.
