    the darksome hill, one of the peaks of the long ridge of
    el-Kolah, running out of the Ziph plateau, "on the south of
    Jeshimon" (i.e., of the "waste"), the district to which one
    looks down from the plateau of Ziph (1 Sam. 23:19). After his
    reconciliation with Saul at Engedi (24:1-8), David returned to
    Hachilah, where he had fixed his quarters. The Ziphites
    treacherously informed Saul of this, and he immediately (26:1-4)
    renewed his pursuit of David, and "pitched in the hill of
    Hachilah." David and his nephew Abishai stole at night into the
    midst of Saul's camp, when they were all asleep, and noiselessly
    removed the royal spear and the cruse from the side of the king,
    and then, crossing the intervening valley to the height on the
    other side, David cried to the people, and thus awoke the
    sleepers. He then addressed Saul, who recognized his voice, and
    expostulated with him. Saul professed to be penitent; but David
    could not put confidence in him, and he now sought refuge at
    Ziklag. David and Saul never afterwards met. (1 Sam. 26:13-25).
