21:-Preface - David cometh to Nob, and obtaineth of Ahimelech hallowed bread: Doeg is present. David asketh for a sword, and receiveth the sword of Goliath. He fleeth to Gath, where to save his life he feigneth himself mad.
22:-Preface - David's kindred and others resort unto him at Adullam. At Mizpeh he commendeth his parents to the protection of the king of Moab. Admonished by Gad he removeth to Hareth. Saul complaineth of the unfaithfulness of his servants. Doeg accuseth Ahimelech. Ahimelech is sent for with the priests, and answereth the charge. The footmen refusing to slay the priests at the king's command, Doeg executeth it: their city Nob is destroyed. Abiathar escaping bringeth David the news.
1 Samuel 21-22
Preface - Paul sheweth that he could not instruct the Corinthians in the higher doctrines of Christianity because of their carnal mind; this state of mind revealed itself in their factions. The most eminent preachers of the gospel are but instruments employed by God in building his church. Paul hath laid the only true foundation, Christ Jesus; and others must take heed what they build thereon. Christians are God's temple, not to be defiled. Worldly wisdom is foolishness with God. They that are Christ's must not glory men.

For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. - 1 Thessalonians 4 v 7
If you have truly joined yourself to Christ, you will never aim at less than complete holiness. It is told of a true child of God, that, in his agonising struggles after holiness, he would often lie upon the ground and cry, 'Lord, give me up to sickness, give me up to suffering, give me up to death, but give me not up to any sin.' If you have indeed joined yourself to Christ, you will have the same desire after universal holiness. 'Let not any iniquity have dominion over me.' 'Quicken Thou me in Thy way.'
