1 Samuel 17:43-44

Context
17:43 The Philistine said to David, “Am I a dog, that you are coming after me with sticks?” 1  Then the Philistine cursed David by his gods. 17:44 The Philistine said to David, “Come here to me, so I can give your flesh to the birds of the sky and the wild animals of the field!” 2 

1 sn Sticks is a pejorative reference to David’s staff (v. 40); the same Hebrew word (מַקֵּל, maqqel) is used for both.

2 tc Many medieval Hebrew mss have “the earth” here, instead of the MT’s “the field.”
