1 Samuel 17:11-15

Context
17:11 When Saul and all the Israelites 1  heard these words of the Philistine, they were upset and very afraid.

17:12 2 Now David was the son of this Ephrathite named Jesse from Bethlehem 3  in Judah. He had eight sons, and in Saul’s days he was old and well advanced in years. 4  17:13 Jesse’s three oldest sons had followed Saul to war. The names of the 5  three sons who went to war were Eliab, his firstborn, Abinadab, the second oldest, and Shammah, the third oldest. 17:14 Now David was the youngest. While the three oldest sons followed Saul, 17:15 David was going back and forth 6  from Saul in order to care for his father’s sheep in Bethlehem.
