KINGS I. (Sam. I.)

17. 12 And David son of an Ephrathite said, this Ephrathite was of Bethleem Juda, and his name was Jessae, and he had eight sons. And the man passed for an old man among men in the days of Saul. 13 And the three elder sons of Jessae went and followed Saul to the war, and the β names of his sons that went to the war were, Eliab his first-born, and his second Aminadab, and his third son Samma. 14 And David himself γ was the younger son, and the three elder followed Saul. 15 And David departed and returned from Saul, δ to feed his father's sheep in Bethleem. 16 And the Philistine advanced morning and evening, and stood up forty days. 17 And Jessae said to David, Take now to thy brethren an ephah of this meal, and these ten loaves, and run to the camp and give them to thy brothers. 18 And thou shalt carry to the captain of the thousand ζ these ten cheeses of milk, and thou shalt see how thy brethren fare, and learn what they want. 19 And Saul himself and all the men of Israel were in the valley of the Oak, warring with the Philistines. 20 And David rose early in the morning, and left the sheep to a keeper, and took and went as Jessae commanded him, and he came to the trench and to the army as it was going out to fight, and they shouted for the battle. 21 And Israel and the Philistines formed their lines one opposite the other. 22 And David deposited his burden in the hand of a keeper, and ran to the line, and went and asked his brethren how they were.

KINGS I. (Sam. I.)

17 23 And while he was speaking with them, behold the Amessaean advanced, Goliath by name, the Philistine of Geth, of the armies of the Philistines, and he spoke θ as before, and David heard. 24 And all the men of Israel when they saw the man fled from before him, and they were greatly terrified. 25 And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that comes up? for he has reproached Israel and has come up ; and it shall be that the man who shall smite him, the king shall enrich him with great wealth, and shall give him his daughter, and shall make his father's house free in Israel. 26 And David spoke to the men who stood with him, saying. Shall it indeed be done thus to the man who shall smite that Philistine, and take away reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he has defied the army of the living God. 27 And the people spoke to him according to this word, saying. Thus shall it be done to the man who shall smite him. 28 And Eliab his elder brother heard as he spoke to the men, and Eliab was very angry with David and said, Why hast thou thus come down, and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride and the naughtiness of thine heart, for thou art come down to see the battle. 29 And David said, What have I done now? λ Have I no business here ? 30 And he turned from him toward another, and he spoke after the same manner; and the people answered him μ after the former manner. 31 And the words which David spoke were heard, and were reported ξ to Saul. And he took him to himself.


θ Gr. according to these words. See ver. 8.          λ Gr. is there not a word?          μ Lit. according to the word of the first          ξ Gr. behind Saul.
