Americans are genteel

1 Samuel 24:3

King James Bible: Saul went in to cover his feet.

New International Version: Saul went in to relieve himself.

The Living Bible (1971): Saul went into the cave to go to the bathroom.

So reads the original, American version of the Living Bible. The British version has "to relieve himself".
