1 Samuel 17:12-15


17:12 1 Now David was the son of this Ephrathite named Jesse from Bethlehem 2  in Judah. He had eight sons, and in Saul’s days he was old and well advanced in years. 3  17:13 Jesse’s three oldest sons had followed Saul to war. The names of the 4  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 5  from Saul in order to care for his father’s sheep in Bethlehem.

1 Samuel 17:28


17:28 When David’s 6  oldest brother Eliab heard him speaking to the men, he became angry 7  with David and said, “Why have you come down here? To whom did you entrust those few sheep in the desert? I am familiar with your pride and deceit! 8  You have come down here to watch the battle!”
