1 Samuel 17:20

Context

17:20 So David got up early in the morning and entrusted the flock to someone else who would watch over it. 1  After loading up, he went just as Jesse had instructed him. He arrived at the camp 2  as the army was going out to the battle lines shouting its battle cry.

1 Samuel 17:52

Context

17:52 Then the men of Israel and Judah charged forward, shouting a battle cry. 3  They chased the Philistines to the valley 4  and to the very gates of Ekron. The Philistine corpses lay fallen along the Shaaraim road to Gath and Ekron.

1 tn Heb “to a guard”; KJV, NASB, NRSV “with a keeper”; NIV “with a shepherd.” Since in contemporary English “guard” sounds like someone at a military installation or a prison, the present translation uses “to someone else who would watch over it.”

2 tn Or “entrenchment.”

3 tn Heb “arose and cried out.”

4 tc Most of the LXX ms tradition has here “Gath.”
