17:1 Now the Philistines [H6430] gathered together [H622] their armies [H4264] to battle [H4421] , and were gathered together [H622] at Shochoh [H7755] , which [belongeth] to Judah [H3063] , and pitched [H2583] between Shochoh [H7755] and Azekah [H5825] , in Ephesdammim [H658] .(Ephesdammim: or, the coast of Dammim, called Pasdammim)

17:2 And Saul [H7586] and the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] were gathered together [H622] , and pitched [H2583] by the valley [H6010] of Elah [H425] , and set the battle [H4421] in array [H6186] against [H7125] the Philistines [H6430] .(set: Heb. ranged the battle)

17:3 And the Philistines [H6430] stood [H5975] on a mountain [H2022] on the one side, and Israel [H3478] stood [H5975] on a mountain [H2022] on the other side: and [there was] a valley [H1516] between them.

17:4 And there went out [H3318] a champion [H376] [H1143] out of the camp [H4264] of the Philistines [H6430] , named [H8034] Goliath [H1555] , of Gath [H1661] , whose height [H1363] [was] six [H8337] cubits [H520] and a span [H2239] .

17:5 And [he had] an helmet [H3553] of brass [H5178] upon his head [H7218] , and he [was] armed [H3847] with a coat [H8302] of mail [H7193] ; and the weight [H4948] of the coat [H8302] [was] five [H2568] thousand [H505] shekels [H8255] of brass [H5178] .(armed: Heb. clothed)

17:6 And [he had] greaves [H4697] of brass [H5178] upon his legs [H7272] , and a target [H3591] of brass [H5178] between his shoulders [H3802] .(target: or, gorget)

17:7 And the staff [H6086] [H2671] of his spear [H2595] [was] like a weaver's [H707] beam [H4500] ; and his spear's [H2595] head [H3852] [weighed] six [H8337] hundred [H3967] shekels [H8255] of iron [H1270] : and one bearing [H5375] a shield [H6793] went [H1980] before [H6440] him.

17:8 And he stood [H5975] and cried [H7121] unto the armies [H4634] of Israel [H3478] , and said [H559] unto them, Why are ye come out [H3318] to set [your] battle [H4421] in array [H6186] ? [am] not I a Philistine [H6430] , and ye servants [H5650] to Saul [H7586] ? choose [H1262] you a man [H376] for you, and let him come down [H3381] to me.

17:9 If he be able [H3201] to fight [H3898] with me, and to kill [H5221] me, then will we be your servants [H5650] : but if I prevail [H3201] against him, and kill [H5221] him, then shall ye be our servants [H5650] , and serve [H5647] us.

17:10 And the Philistine [H6430] said [H559] , I defy [H2778] the armies [H4634] of Israel [H3478] this day [H3117] ; give [H5414] me a man [H376] , that we may fight [H3898] together [H3162] .

17:11 When Saul [H7586] and all Israel [H3478] heard [H8085] those words [H1697] of the Philistine [H6430] , they were dismayed [H2865] , and greatly [H3966] afraid [H3372] .

17:12 Now David [H1732] [was] the son [H1121] of that Ephrathite [H376] [H673] of Bethlehemjudah [H1035] [H3063] , whose name [H8034] [was] Jesse [H3448] ; and he had eight [H8083] sons [H1121] : and the man [H376] went [H935] among men [H582] [for] an old man [H2204] in the days [H3117] of Saul [H7586] .

17:13 And the three [H7969] eldest [H1419] sons [H1121] of Jesse [H3448] went [H3212] [and] followed [H310] Saul [H7586] to the battle [H4421] : and the names [H8034] of his three [H7969] sons [H1121] that went [H1980] to the battle [H4421] [were] Eliab [H446] the firstborn [H1060] , and next [H4932] unto him Abinadab [H41] , and the third [H7992] Shammah [H8048] .

17:14 And David [H1732] [was] the youngest [H6996] : and the three [H7969] eldest [H1419] followed [H1980] [H310] Saul [H7586] .

17:15 But David [H1732] went [H1980] and returned [H7725] from Saul [H7586] to feed [H7462] his father's [H1] sheep [H6629] at Bethlehem [H1035] .

17:16 And the Philistine [H6430] drew near [H5066] morning [H7925] and evening [H6150] , and presented [H3320] himself forty [H705] days [H3117] .

17:17 And Jesse [H3448] said [H559] unto David [H1732] his son [H1121] , Take [H3947] now for thy brethren [H251] an ephah [H374] of this [H2088] parched [H7039] [corn], and these ten [H6235] loaves [H3899] , and run [H7323] to the camp [H4264] to thy brethren [H251] ;

17:18 And carry [H935] these ten [H6235] cheeses [H2461] [H2757] unto the captain [H8269] of [their] thousand [H505] , and look [H6485] how thy brethren [H251] fare [H7965] , and take [H3947] their pledge [H6161] .(cheeses: Heb. cheeses of milk)(of: Heb. of a thousand)

17:19 Now Saul [H7586] , and they, and all the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] , [were] in the valley [H6010] of Elah [H425] , fighting [H3898] with the Philistines [H6430] .

17:20 And David [H1732] rose up early [H7925] in the morning [H1242] , and left [H5203] the sheep [H6629] with a keeper [H8104] , and took [H5375] , and went [H3212] , as Jesse [H3448] had commanded [H6680] him; and he came [H935] to the trench [H4570] , as the host [H2428] was going forth [H3318] to the fight [H4634] , and shouted [H7321] for the battle [H4421] .(trench: or, place of the carriage)(fight: or, battle array, or, place of fight)

17:21 For Israel [H3478] and the Philistines [H6430] had put the battle in array [H6186] , army [H4634] against [H7125] army [H4634] .

17:22 And David [H1732] left [H5203] his carriage [H3627] in the hand [H3027] of the keeper [H8104] of the carriage [H3627] , and ran [H7323] into the army [H4634] , and came [H935] and saluted [H7592] [H7965] his brethren [H251] .(his carriage: Heb. the vessels from upon him)(saluted: Heb. asked his brethren of peace)

17:23 And as he talked [H1696] with them, behold, there came up [H5927] the champion [H376] [H1143] , the Philistine [H6430] of Gath [H1661] , Goliath [H1555] by name [H8034] , out of the armies [H4634] [H4630] of the Philistines [H6430] , and spake [H1696] according to the same [H428] words [H1697] : and David [H1732] heard [H8085] [them].

17:24 And all the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] , when they saw [H7200] the man [H376] , fled [H5127] from him [H6440] , and were sore [H3966] afraid [H3372] .(from: Heb. from his face)

17:25 And the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] , Have ye seen [H7200] this man [H376] that is come up [H5927] ? surely to defy [H2778] Israel [H3478] is he come up [H5927] : and it shall be, [that] the man [H376] who killeth [H5221] him, the king [H4428] will enrich [H6238] him with great [H1419] riches [H6239] , and will give [H5414] him his daughter [H1323] , and make [H6213] his father's [H1] house [H1004] free [H2670] in Israel [H3478] .

17:26 And David [H1732] spake [H559] to the men [H582] that stood [H5975] by him, saying [H559] , What shall be done [H6213] to the man [H376] that killeth [H5221] this [H1975] Philistine [H6430] , and taketh away [H5493] the reproach [H2781] from Israel [H3478] ? for who [is] this uncircumcised [H6189] Philistine [H6430] , that he should defy [H2778] the armies [H4634] of the living [H2416] God [H430] ?

17:27 And the people [H5971] answered [H559] him after this manner [H1697] , saying [H559] , So shall it be done [H6213] to the man [H376] that killeth [H5221] him.

17:28 And Eliab [H446] his eldest [H1419] brother [H251] heard [H8085] when he spake [H1696] unto the men [H582] ; and Eliab's [H446] anger [H639] was kindled [H2734] against David [H1732] , and he said [H559] , Why camest thou down [H3381] hither? and with whom hast thou left [H5203] those [H2007] few [H4592] sheep [H6629] in the wilderness [H4057] ? I know [H3045] thy pride [H2087] , and the naughtiness [H7455] of thine heart [H3824] ; for thou art come down [H3381] that thou mightest see [H7200] the battle [H4421] .

17:29 And David [H1732] said [H559] , What have I now done [H6213] ? [Is there] not a cause [H1697] ?

17:30 And he turned [H5437] from him [H681] toward [H4136] another [H312] , and spake [H559] after the same manner [H1697] : and the people [H5971] answered [H1697] him again [H7725] after the former [H7223] manner [H1697] .(manner: Heb. word)

17:31 And when the words [H1697] were heard [H8085] which David [H1732] spake [H1696] , they rehearsed [H5046] [them] before [H6440] Saul [H7586] : and he sent [H3947] for him.(sent: Heb. took him)

17:32 And David [H1732] said [H559] to Saul [H7586] , Let no man's [H120] heart [H3820] fail [H5307] because of him; thy servant [H5650] will go [H3212] and fight [H3898] with this Philistine [H6430] .

17:33 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] to David [H1732] , Thou art not able [H3201] to go [H3212] against this Philistine [H6430] to fight [H3898] with him: for thou [art but] a youth [H5288] , and he a man [H376] of war [H4421] from his youth [H5271] .

17:34 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto Saul [H7586] , Thy servant [H5650] kept [H7462] his father's [H1] sheep [H6629] , and there came [H935] a lion [H738] , and a bear [H1677] , and took [H5375] a lamb [H7716] [H2089] out of the flock [H5739] :(lamb: or, kid)

17:35 And I went out [H3318] after [H310] him, and smote [H5221] him, and delivered [H5337] [it] out of his mouth [H6310] : and when he arose [H6965] against me, I caught [H2388] [him] by his beard [H2206] , and smote [H5221] him, and slew [H4191] him.

17:36 Thy servant [H5650] slew [H5221] both the lion [H738] and the bear [H1677] : and this uncircumcised [H6189] Philistine [H6430] shall be as one [H259] of them, seeing he hath defied [H2778] the armies [H4634] of the living [H2416] God [H430] .

17:37 David [H1732] said [H559] moreover, The LORD [H3068] that delivered [H5337] me out of the paw [H3027] of the lion [H738] , and out of the paw [H3027] of the bear [H1677] , he will deliver [H5337] me out of the hand [H3027] of this Philistine [H6430] . And Saul [H7586] said [H559] unto David [H1732] , Go [H3212] , and the LORD [H3068] be with thee.

17:38 And Saul [H7586] armed [H3847] David [H1732] with his armour [H4055] , and he put [H5414] an helmet [H6959] of brass [H5178] upon his head [H7218] ; also he armed [H3847] him with a coat of mail [H8302] .(armed David: Heb. clothed David with his clothes)

17:39 And David [H1732] girded [H2296] his sword [H2719] upon his armour [H4055] , and he assayed [H2974] to go [H3212] ; for he had not proved [H5254] [it]. And David [H1732] said [H559] unto Saul [H7586] , I cannot [H3201] go [H3212] with these; for I have not proved [H5254] [them]. And David [H1732] put [H5493] them off him.

17:40 And he took [H3947] his staff [H4731] in his hand [H3027] , and chose [H977] him five [H2568] smooth [H2512] stones [H68] out of the brook [H5158] , and put [H7760] them in a shepherd's [H7462] bag [H3627] which he had, even in a scrip [H3219] ; and his sling [H7050] [was] in his hand [H3027] : and he drew near [H5066] to the Philistine [H6430] .(brook: or, valley)(bag: Heb. vessel)

17:41 And the Philistine [H6430] came [H3212] on [H1980] and drew near [H7131] unto David [H1732] ; and the man [H376] that bare [H5375] the shield [H6793] [went] before [H6440] him.

17:42 And when the Philistine [H6430] looked about [H5027] , and saw [H7200] David [H1732] , he disdained [H959] him: for he was [but] a youth [H5288] , and ruddy [H132] , and of a fair [H3303] countenance [H4758] .

17:43 And the Philistine [H6430] said [H559] unto David [H1732] , [Am] I a dog [H3611] , that thou comest [H935] to me with staves [H4731] ? And the Philistine [H6430] cursed [H7043] David [H1732] by his gods [H430] .

17:44 And the Philistine [H6430] said [H559] to David [H1732] , Come [H3212] to me, and I will give [H5414] thy flesh [H1320] unto the fowls [H5775] of the air [H8064] , and to the beasts [H929] of the field [H7704] .

17:45 Then said [H559] David [H1732] to the Philistine [H6430] , Thou comest [H935] to me with a sword [H2719] , and with a spear [H2595] , and with a shield [H3591] : but I come [H935] to thee in the name [H8034] of the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , the God [H430] of the armies [H4634] of Israel [H3478] , whom thou hast defied [H2778] .

17:46 This day [H3117] will the LORD [H3068] deliver [H5462] thee into mine hand [H3027] ; and I will smite [H5221] thee, and take [H5493] thine head [H7218] from thee; and I will give [H5414] the carcases [H6297] of the host [H4264] of the Philistines [H6430] this day [H3117] unto the fowls [H5775] of the air [H8064] , and to the wild beasts [H2416] of the earth [H776] ; that all the earth [H776] may know [H3045] that there is [H3426] a God [H430] in Israel [H3478] .(deliver: Heb. shut thee up)

17:47 And all this assembly [H6951] shall know [H3045] that the LORD [H3068] saveth [H3467] not with sword [H2719] and spear [H2595] : for the battle [H4421] [is] the LORD'S [H3068] , and he will give [H5414] you into our hands [H3027] .

17:48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine [H6430] arose [H6965] , and came [H3212] and drew nigh [H7126] to meet [H7125] David [H1732] , that David [H1732] hasted [H4116] , and ran [H7323] toward the army [H4634] to meet [H7125] the Philistine [H6430] .

17:49 And David [H1732] put [H7971] his hand [H3027] in his bag [H3627] , and took [H3947] thence a stone [H68] , and slang [H7049] [it], and smote [H5221] the Philistine [H6430] in his forehead [H4696] , that the stone [H68] sunk [H2883] into his forehead [H4696] ; and he fell [H5307] upon his face [H6440] to the earth [H776] .

17:50 So David [H1732] prevailed [H2388] over [H4480] the Philistine [H6430] with a sling [H7050] and with a stone [H68] , and smote [H5221] the Philistine [H6430] , and slew [H4191] him; but [there was] no sword [H2719] in the hand [H3027] of David [H1732] .

17:51 Therefore David [H1732] ran [H7323] , and stood [H5975] upon the Philistine [H6430] , and took [H3947] his sword [H2719] , and drew [H8025] it out of the sheath [H8593] thereof, and slew [H4191] him, and cut off [H3772] his head [H7218] therewith. And when the Philistines [H6430] saw [H7200] their champion [H1368] was dead [H4191] , they fled [H5127] .

17:52 And the men [H582] of Israel [H3478] and of Judah [H3063] arose [H6965] , and shouted [H7321] , and pursued [H7291] the Philistines [H6430] , until thou come [H935] to the valley [H1516] , and to the gates [H8179] of Ekron [H6138] . And the wounded [H2491] of the Philistines [H6430] fell down [H5307] by the way [H1870] to Shaaraim [H8189] , even unto Gath [H1661] , and unto Ekron [H6138] .

17:53 And the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] returned [H7725] from chasing [H1814] after [H310] the Philistines [H6430] , and they spoiled [H8155] their tents [H4264] .

17:54 And David [H1732] took [H3947] the head [H7218] of the Philistine [H6430] , and brought [H935] it to Jerusalem [H3389] ; but he put [H7760] his armour [H3627] in his tent [H168] .

17:55 And when Saul [H7586] saw [H7200] David [H1732] go forth [H3318] against [H7125] the Philistine [H6430] , he said [H559] unto Abner [H74] , the captain [H8269] of the host [H6635] , Abner [H74] , whose son [H1121] [is] this youth [H5288] ? And Abner [H74] said [H559] , [As] thy soul [H5315] liveth [H2416] , O king [H4428] , I cannot [H518] tell [H3045] .

17:56 And the king [H4428] said [H559] , Enquire [H7592] thou whose son [H1121] the stripling [H5958] [is].

17:57 And as David [H1732] returned [H7725] from the slaughter [H5221] of the Philistine [H6430] , Abner [H74] took [H3947] him, and brought [H935] him before [H6440] Saul [H7586] with the head [H7218] of the Philistine [H6430] in his hand [H3027] .

17:58 And Saul [H7586] said [H559] to him, Whose son [H1121] [art] thou, [thou] young man [H5288] ? And David [H1732] answered [H559] , I [am] the son [H1121] of thy servant [H5650] Jesse [H3448] the Bethlehemite [H1022] .
