My brother showed me something that, without a proper answer, bothers me.
In 1 Sam 21, David lied concerning two things:
#1: he was on a mission for the king
#2: he had 'men' or companions following him. (vs 2)
Now, in Matthew 12:3, Jesus says in regards to David, "he and his companions" ...
You'd think Jesus would know the Scriptures.. ??
So, to say it another way, David really did not have companions with him, but Jesus said he did.
