1 Samuel 18:18

15. Wherefore when Saul saw that hee behaued himselfe very wisely, hee was afraid of him. 16. But all Israel and Iudah loued Dauid, because hee went out and came in before them. 17. ¶ And Saul said to Dauid, Behold, my elder daughter Merab, her will I giue thee to wife: onely be thou valiant for me, and fight the Lords battels: for Saul said, Let not mine hand be vpon him, but let the hand of the Philistines be vpon him. 18. And Dauid said vnto Saul, Who am I? and what is my life, or my fathers family in Israel, that I should be sonne in law to the king? 19. But it came to passe at the time when Merab Sauls daughter should haue beene giuen to Dauid, that shee was giuen vnto Adriel the Meholathite to wife. 20. And Michal Sauls daughter loued Dauid: and they tolde Saul, and the thing pleased him. 21. And Saul said, I will giue him her, that she may be a snare to him, and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him. Wherefore Saul said to Dauid, Thou shalt this day be my sonne in law, in the one of the twaine.
