JOSEPH SMITH TRANSLATION
1 SAMUEL 16: 14-16, 23
The evil spirit that came upon Saul was not from the Lord. (compare 1 Samuel 16: 14-16, 23; similar changes were made to 1 Samuel 18: 10 and 19: 9)
  14 But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit which was not of the LORD troubled him.
  15 And Saul's servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit which is not of God troubleth thee.
  16 Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit which is not of God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.

  23 And it came to pass, when the evil spirit which was not of God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.
