Old Testament –

“Then said Hushai unto Zadok and to Abiathar the priests, ‘Thus and thus did Ahithophel counsel Absalom and the elders of Israel; and thus and thus have I counselled.  Now therefore send quickly, and tell David, saying, ‘Lodge not this night in the plains of the wilderness, but speedily pass over; lest the king be swallowed up, and all the people that are with him.’ Now Jonathan and Ahimaaz stayed by Enrogel; for they might not be seen to come into the city: and a wench went and told them; and they went and told king David. Nevertheless a lad saw them, and told Absalom: but they went both of them away quickly, and came to a man’s house in Bahurim, which had a well in his court; whither they went down.  And the woman took and spread a covering over the well’s mouth, and spread ground corn thereon; and the thing was not known.  And when Absalom’s servants came to the woman to the house, they said, ‘Where is Ahimaaz and Jonathan?’ And the woman said unto them, ‘They be gone over the brook of water.’ And when they had sought and could not find them, they returned to Jerusalem. And it came to pass, after they were departed, that they came up out of the well, and went and told king David, and said unto David, ‘Arise, and pass quickly over the water: for thus hath Ahithophel counselled against you.'” 2 Samuel 17:15-21 (KJV)

New Testament –

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”  Acts 2:1-4 (KJV)
