Acts 10. Cornelius, a Roman centurion called for Peter to come. That same day  Peter had a vision about eating all food, including unclean food. Peter protested, but the voice in the vision told him “What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. Peter followed Cornelius’ servants  from Joppa to Caesarea, where he met Cornelius and presented the Gospel to Cornelius’ household. They all believed,  the Holy Spirit fell on them and they were baptized, the first gentiles converted.

1 Samuel 20, Jonathan and David vowed an oath of loyalty, saying:The Lord be between me and thee, and between my seed and thy seed for ever.”

In 1 Samuel 21 David and his men ate from the Holy Showbread. After that David fled to Gath and pretended to be insane to stay alive.

1 Samuel 22, David gathered four hundred men and went back into Judah. Because the LORD’s priests had helped David, Saul had Doeg the Edomite murder the priests, eighty-five in all.
