1 Samuel 17

Now the Philistines
<06430>
gathered together
<0622> (8799)
their armies
<04264>
to battle
<04421>_,
and were gathered together
<0622> (8735)
at Shochoh
<07755>_,
which [belongeth] to Judah
<03063>_,
and pitched
<02583> (8799)
between Shochoh
<07755>
and Azekah
<05825>_,
in Ephesdammim
<0658>_.
{Ephesdammim: or, the coast of Dammim, called Pasdammim}
And Saul
<07586>
and the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
were gathered together
<0622> (8738)_,
and pitched
<02583> (8799)
by the valley
<06010>
of Elah
<0425>_,
and set the battle
<04421>
in array
<06186> (8799)
against
<07125> (8800)
the Philistines
<06430>_.
{set...: Heb. ranged the battle}
And the Philistines
<06430>
stood
<05975> (8802)
on a mountain
<02022>
on the one side, and Israel
<03478>
stood
<05975> (8802)
on a mountain
<02022>
on the other side: and [there was] a valley
<01516>
between them.
And there went out
<03318> (8799)
a champion
<0376> <01143>
out of the camp
<04264>
of the Philistines
<06430>_,
named
<08034>
Goliath
<01555>_,
of Gath
<01661>_,
whose height
<01363>
[was] six
<08337>
cubits
<0520>
and a span
<02239>_.
And [he had] an helmet
<03553>
of brass
<05178>
upon his head
<07218>_,
and he [was] armed
<03847> (8803)
with a coat
<08302>
of mail
<07193>_;
and the weight
<04948>
of the coat
<08302>
[was] five
<02568>
thousand
<0505>
shekels
<08255>
of brass
<05178>_.
{armed: Heb. clothed}
And [he had] greaves
<04697>
of brass
<05178>
upon his legs
<07272>_,
and a target
<03591>
of brass
<05178>
between his shoulders
<03802>_.
{target: or, gorget}
And the staff
<06086> (8675) <02671>
of his spear
<02595>
[was] like a weaver's
<0707> (8802)
beam
<04500>_;
and his spear's
<02595>
head
<03852>
[weighed] six
<08337>
hundred
<03967>
shekels
<08255>
of iron
<01270>_:
and one bearing
<05375> (8802)
a shield
<06793>
went
<01980> (8802)
before
<06440>
him.
And he stood
<05975> (8799)
and cried
<07121> (8799)
unto the armies
<04634>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Why are ye come out
<03318> (8799)
to set [your] battle
<04421>
in array
<06186> (8800)_?
[am] not I a Philistine
<06430>_,
and ye servants
<05650>
to Saul
<07586>_?
choose
<01262> (8798)
you a man
<0376>
for you, and let him come down
<03381> (8799)
to me.
If he be able
<03201> (8799)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
with me, and to kill
<05221> (8689)
me, then will we be your servants
<05650>_:
but if I prevail
<03201> (8799)
against him, and kill
<05221> (8689)
him, then shall ye be our servants
<05650>_,
and serve
<05647> (8804)
us.
And the Philistine
<06430>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I defy
<02778> (8765)
the armies
<04634>
of Israel
<03478>
this day
<03117>_;
give
<05414> (8798)
me a man
<0376>_,
that we may fight
<03898> (8735)
together
<03162>_.
When Saul
<07586>
and all Israel
<03478>
heard
<08085> (8799)
those words
<01697>
of the Philistine
<06430>_,
they were dismayed
<02865> (8735)_,
and greatly
<03966>
afraid
<03372> (8799)_.
Now David
<01732>
[was] the son
<01121>
of that Ephrathite
<0376> <0673>
of Bethlehemjudah
<01035> <03063>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Jesse
<03448>_;
and he had eight
<08083>
sons
<01121>_:
and the man
<0376>
went
<0935> (8804)
among men
<0582>
[for] an old man
<02204> (8804)
in the days
<03117>
of Saul
<07586>_.
And the three
<07969>
eldest
<01419>
sons
<01121>
of Jesse
<03448>
went
<03212> (8799)
[and] followed
<0310>
Saul
<07586>
to the battle
<04421>_:
and the names
<08034>
of his three
<07969>
sons
<01121>
that went
<01980> (8804)
to the battle
<04421>
[were] Eliab
<0446>
the firstborn
<01060>_,
and next
<04932>
unto him Abinadab
<041>_,
and the third
<07992>
Shammah
<08048>_.
And David
<01732>
[was] the youngest
<06996>_:
and the three
<07969>
eldest
<01419>
followed
<01980> (8804) <0310>
Saul
<07586>_.
But David
<01732>
went
<01980> (8802)
and returned
<07725> (8802)
from Saul
<07586>
to feed
<07462> (8800)
his father's
<01>
sheep
<06629>
at Bethlehem
<01035>_.
And the Philistine
<06430>
drew near
<05066> (8799)
morning
<07925> (8687)
and evening
<06150> (8687)_,
and presented
<03320> (8691)
himself forty
<0705>
days
<03117>_.
And Jesse
<03448>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>
his son
<01121>_,
Take
<03947> (8798)
now for thy brethren
<0251>
an ephah
<0374>
of this
<02088>
parched
<07039>
[corn], and these ten
<06235>
loaves
<03899>_,
and run
<07323> (8685)
to the camp
<04264>
to thy brethren
<0251>_;
And carry
<0935> (8686)
these ten
<06235>
cheeses
<02461> <02757>
unto the captain
<08269>
of [their] thousand
<0505>_,
and look
<06485> (8799)
how thy brethren
<0251>
fare
<07965>_,
and take
<03947> (8799)
their pledge
<06161>_.
{cheeses: Heb. cheeses of milk} {of...: Heb. of a thousand}
Now Saul
<07586>_,
and they, and all the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>_,
[were] in the valley
<06010>
of Elah
<0425>_,
fighting
<03898> (8737)
with the Philistines
<06430>_.
And David
<01732>
rose up early
<07925> (8686)
in the morning
<01242>_,
and left
<05203> (8799)
the sheep
<06629>
with a keeper
<08104> (8802)_,
and took
<05375> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)_,
as Jesse
<03448>
had commanded
<06680> (8765)
him; and he came
<0935> (8799)
to the trench
<04570>_,
as the host
<02428>
was going forth
<03318> (8802)
to the fight
<04634>_,
and shouted
<07321> (8689)
for the battle
<04421>_.
{trench: or, place of the carriage} {fight: or, battle array, or, place of fight}
For Israel
<03478>
and the Philistines
<06430>
had put the battle in array
<06186> (8799)_,
army
<04634>
against
<07125> (8800)
army
<04634>_.
And David
<01732>
left
<05203> (8799)
his carriage
<03627>
in the hand
<03027>
of the keeper
<08104> (8802)
of the carriage
<03627>_,
and ran
<07323> (8799)
into the army
<04634>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
and saluted
<07592> (8799) <07965>
his brethren
<0251>_.
{his carriage: Heb. the vessels from upon him} {saluted...: Heb. asked his brethren of peace}
And as he talked
<01696> (8764)
with them, behold, there came up
<05927> (8802)
the champion
<0376> <01143>_,
the Philistine
<06430>
of Gath
<01661>_,
Goliath
<01555>
by name
<08034>_,
out of the armies
<04634> (8675) <04630>
of the Philistines
<06430>_,
and spake
<01696> (8762)
according to the same
<0428>
words
<01697>_:
and David
<01732>
heard
<08085> (8799)
[them].
And all the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>_,
when they saw
<07200> (8800)
the man
<0376>_,
fled
<05127> (8799)
from him
<06440>_,
and were sore
<03966>
afraid
<03372> (8799)_.
{from...: Heb. from his face}
And the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Have ye seen
<07200> (8804)
this man
<0376>
that is come up
<05927> (8802)_?
surely to defy
<02778> (8763)
Israel
<03478>
is he come up
<05927> (8802)_:
and it shall be, [that] the man
<0376>
who killeth
<05221> (8686)
him, the king
<04428>
will enrich
<06238> (8686)
him with great
<01419>
riches
<06239>_,
and will give
<05414> (8799)
him his daughter
<01323>_,
and make
<06213> (8799)
his father's
<01>
house
<01004>
free
<02670>
in Israel
<03478>_.
And David
<01732>
spake
<0559> (8799)
to the men
<0582>
that stood
<05975> (8802)
by him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What shall be done
<06213> (8735)
to the man
<0376>
that killeth
<05221> (8686)
this
<01975>
Philistine
<06430>_,
and taketh away
<05493> (8689)
the reproach
<02781>
from Israel
<03478>_?
for who [is] this uncircumcised
<06189>
Philistine
<06430>_,
that he should defy
<02778> (8765)
the armies
<04634>
of the living
<02416>
God
<0430>_?
And the people
<05971>
answered
<0559> (8799)
him after this manner
<01697>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
So shall it be done
<06213> (8735)
to the man
<0376>
that killeth
<05221> (8686)
him.
And Eliab
<0446>
his eldest
<01419>
brother
<0251>
heard
<08085> (8799)
when he spake
<01696> (8763)
unto the men
<0582>_;
and Eliab's
<0446>
anger
<0639>
was kindled
<02734> (8799)
against David
<01732>_,
and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Why camest thou down
<03381> (8804)
hither? and with whom hast thou left
<05203> (8804)
those
<02007>
few
<04592>
sheep
<06629>
in the wilderness
<04057>_?
I know
<03045> (8804)
thy pride
<02087>_,
and the naughtiness
<07455>
of thine heart
<03824>_;
for thou art come down
<03381> (8804)
that thou mightest see
<07200> (8800)
the battle
<04421>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
What have I now done
<06213> (8804)_?
[Is there] not a cause
<01697>_?
And he turned
<05437> (8735)
from him
<0681>
toward
<04136>
another
<0312>_,
and spake
<0559> (8799)
after the same manner
<01697>_:
and the people
<05971>
answered
<01697>
him again
<07725> (8686)
after the former
<07223>
manner
<01697>_.
{manner: Heb. word}
And when the words
<01697>
were heard
<08085> (8735)
which David
<01732>
spake
<01696> (8765)_,
they rehearsed
<05046> (8686)
[them] before
<06440>
Saul
<07586>_:
and he sent
<03947> (8799)
for him. {sent...: Heb. took him}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Saul
<07586>_,
Let no man's
<0120>
heart
<03820>
fail
<05307> (8799)
because of him; thy servant
<05650>
will go
<03212> (8799)
and fight
<03898> (8738)
with this Philistine
<06430>_.
And Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
Thou art not able
<03201> (8799)
to go
<03212> (8800)
against this Philistine
<06430>
to fight
<03898> (8736)
with him: for thou [art but] a youth
<05288>_,
and he a man
<0376>
of war
<04421>
from his youth
<05271>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Saul
<07586>_,
Thy servant
<05650>
kept
<07462> (8802)
his father's
<01>
sheep
<06629>_,
and there came
<0935> (8804)
a lion
<0738>_,
and a bear
<01677>_,
and took
<05375> (8804)
a lamb
<07716> (8675) <02089>
out of the flock
<05739>_:
{lamb: or, kid}
And I went out
<03318> (8804)
after
<0310>
him, and smote
<05221> (8689)
him, and delivered
<05337> (8689)
[it] out of his mouth
<06310>_:
and when he arose
<06965> (8799)
against me, I caught
<02388> (8689)
[him] by his beard
<02206>_,
and smote
<05221> (8689)
him, and slew
<04191> (8689)
him.
Thy servant
<05650>
slew
<05221> (8689)
both the lion
<0738>
and the bear
<01677>_:
and this uncircumcised
<06189>
Philistine
<06430>
shall be as one
<0259>
of them, seeing he hath defied
<02778> (8765)
the armies
<04634>
of the living
<02416>
God
<0430>_.
David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
moreover, The LORD
<03068>
that delivered
<05337> (8689)
me out of the paw
<03027>
of the lion
<0738>_,
and out of the paw
<03027>
of the bear
<01677>_,
he will deliver
<05337> (8686)
me out of the hand
<03027>
of this Philistine
<06430>_.
And Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
Go
<03212> (8798)_,
and the LORD
<03068>
be with thee.
And Saul
<07586>
armed
<03847> (8686)
David
<01732>
with his armour
<04055>_,
and he put
<05414> (8804)
an helmet
<06959>
of brass
<05178>
upon his head
<07218>_;
also he armed
<03847> (8686)
him with a coat of mail
<08302>_.
{armed David...: Heb. clothed David with his clothes}
And David
<01732>
girded
<02296> (8799)
his sword
<02719>
upon his armour
<04055>_,
and he assayed
<02974> (8686)
to go
<03212> (8800)_;
for he had not proved
<05254> (8765)
[it]. And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Saul
<07586>_,
I cannot
<03201> (8799)
go
<03212> (8800)
with these; for I have not proved
<05254> (8765)
[them]. And David
<01732>
put
<05493> (8686)
them off him.
And he took
<03947> (8799)
his staff
<04731>
in his hand
<03027>_,
and chose
<0977> (8799)
him five
<02568>
smooth
<02512>
stones
<068>
out of the brook
<05158>_,
and put
<07760> (8799)
them in a shepherd's
<07462> (8802)
bag
<03627>
which he had, even in a scrip
<03219>_;
and his sling
<07050>
[was] in his hand
<03027>_:
and he drew near
<05066> (8799)
to the Philistine
<06430>_.
{brook: or, valley} {bag: Heb. vessel}
And the Philistine
<06430>
came
<03212> (8799)
on
<01980> (8802)
and drew near
<07131>
unto David
<01732>_;
and the man
<0376>
that bare
<05375> (8802)
the shield
<06793>
[went] before
<06440>
him.
And when the Philistine
<06430>
looked about
<05027> (8686)_,
and saw
<07200> (8799)
David
<01732>_,
he disdained
<0959> (8799)
him: for he was [but] a youth
<05288>_,
and ruddy
<0132>_,
and of a fair
<03303>
countenance
<04758>_.
And the Philistine
<06430>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
[Am] I a dog
<03611>_,
that thou comest
<0935> (8802)
to me with staves
<04731>_?
And the Philistine
<06430>
cursed
<07043> (8762)
David
<01732>
by his gods
<0430>_.
And the Philistine
<06430>
said
<0559> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
Come
<03212> (8798)
to me, and I will give
<05414> (8799)
thy flesh
<01320>
unto the fowls
<05775>
of the air
<08064>_,
and to the beasts
<0929>
of the field
<07704>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
David
<01732>
to the Philistine
<06430>_,
Thou comest
<0935> (8802)
to me with a sword
<02719>_,
and with a spear
<02595>_,
and with a shield
<03591>_:
but I come
<0935> (8802)
to thee in the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
the God
<0430>
of the armies
<04634>
of Israel
<03478>_,
whom thou hast defied
<02778> (8765)_.
This day
<03117>
will the LORD
<03068>
deliver
<05462> (8762)
thee into mine hand
<03027>_;
and I will smite
<05221> (8689)
thee, and take
<05493> (8689)
thine head
<07218>
from thee; and I will give
<05414> (8804)
the carcases
<06297>
of the host
<04264>
of the Philistines
<06430>
this day
<03117>
unto the fowls
<05775>
of the air
<08064>_,
and to the wild beasts
<02416>
of the earth
<0776>_;
that all the earth
<0776>
may know
<03045> (8799)
that there is
<03426>
a God
<0430>
in Israel
<03478>_.
{deliver...: Heb. shut thee up}
And all this assembly
<06951>
shall know
<03045> (8799)
that the LORD
<03068>
saveth
<03467> (8686)
not with sword
<02719>
and spear
<02595>_:
for the battle
<04421>
[is] the LORD'S
<03068>_,
and he will give
<05414> (8804)
you into our hands
<03027>_.
And it came to pass, when the Philistine
<06430>
arose
<06965> (8804)_,
and came
<03212> (8799)
and drew nigh
<07126> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
David
<01732>_,
that David
<01732>
hasted
<04116> (8762)_,
and ran
<07323> (8799)
toward the army
<04634>
to meet
<07125> (8800)
the Philistine
<06430>_.
And David
<01732>
put
<07971> (8799)
his hand
<03027>
in his bag
<03627>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
thence a stone
<068>_,
and slang
<07049> (8762)
[it], and smote
<05221> (8686)
the Philistine
<06430>
in his forehead
<04696>_,
that the stone
<068>
sunk
<02883> (8799)
into his forehead
<04696>_;
and he fell
<05307> (8799)
upon his face
<06440>
to the earth
<0776>_.
So David
<01732>
prevailed
<02388> (8799)
over
<04480>
the Philistine
<06430>
with a sling
<07050>
and with a stone
<068>_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
the Philistine
<06430>_,
and slew
<04191> (8686)
him; but [there was] no sword
<02719>
in the hand
<03027>
of David
<01732>_.
Therefore David
<01732>
ran
<07323> (8799)_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
upon the Philistine
<06430>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
his sword
<02719>_,
and drew
<08025> (8799)
it out of the sheath
<08593>
thereof, and slew
<04191> (8787)
him, and cut off
<03772> (8799)
his head
<07218>
therewith. And when the Philistines
<06430>
saw
<07200> (8799)
their champion
<01368>
was dead
<04191> (8804)_,
they fled
<05127> (8799)_.
And the men
<0582>
of Israel
<03478>
and of Judah
<03063>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and shouted
<07321> (8686)_,
and pursued
<07291> (8799)
the Philistines
<06430>_,
until thou come
<0935> (8800)
to the valley
<01516>_,
and to the gates
<08179>
of Ekron
<06138>_.
And the wounded
<02491>
of the Philistines
<06430>
fell down
<05307> (8799)
by the way
<01870>
to Shaaraim
<08189>_,
even unto Gath
<01661>_,
and unto Ekron
<06138>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
returned
<07725> (8799)
from chasing
<01814> (8800)
after
<0310>
the Philistines
<06430>_,
and they spoiled
<08155> (8799)
their tents
<04264>_.
And David
<01732>
took
<03947> (8799)
the head
<07218>
of the Philistine
<06430>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
it to Jerusalem
<03389>_;
but he put
<07760> (8804)
his armour
<03627>
in his tent
<0168>_.
And when Saul
<07586>
saw
<07200> (8800)
David
<01732>
go forth
<03318> (8802)
against
<07125> (8800)
the Philistine
<06430>_,
he said
<0559> (8804)
unto Abner
<074>_,
the captain
<08269>
of the host
<06635>_,
Abner
<074>_,
whose son
<01121>
[is] this youth
<05288>_?
And Abner
<074>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[As] thy soul
<05315>
liveth
<02416>_,
O king
<04428>_,
I cannot
<0518>
tell
<03045> (8804)_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Enquire
<07592> (8798)
thou whose son
<01121>
the stripling
<05958>
[is].
And as David
<01732>
returned
<07725> (8800)
from the slaughter
<05221> (8687)
of the Philistine
<06430>_,
Abner
<074>
took
<03947> (8799)
him, and brought
<0935> (8686)
him before
<06440>
Saul
<07586>
with the head
<07218>
of the Philistine
<06430>
in his hand
<03027>_.
And Saul
<07586>
said
<0559> (8799)
to him, Whose son
<01121>
[art] thou, [thou] young man
<05288>_?
And David
<01732>
answered
<0559> (8799)_,
I [am] the son
<01121>
of thy servant
<05650>
Jesse
<03448>
the Bethlehemite
<01022>_.
