    17:1 Now the Philistines 6430 gathered together 622 8799 their armies 4264 to battle 4421, and were gathered together 622 8735 at Shochoh 7755, which [belongeth] to Judah 3063, and pitched 2583 8799 between Shochoh 7755 and Azekah 5825, in Ephesdammim 658.(Ephesdammim: or, the coast of Dammim, called Pasdammim)

    17:2 And Saul 7586 and the men 376 of Israel 3478 were gathered together 622 8738, and pitched 2583 8799 by the valley 6010 of Elah 425, and set the battle 4421 in array 6186 8799 against 7125 8800 the Philistines 6430.(set…: Heb. ranged the battle)

    17:3 And the Philistines 6430 stood 5975 8802 on a mountain 2022 on the one side, and Israel 3478 stood 5975 8802 on a mountain 2022 on the other side: and [there was] a valley 1516 between them.

    17:4 And there went out 3318 8799 a champion 376 1143 out of the camp 4264 of the Philistines 6430, named 8034 Goliath 1555, of Gath 1661, whose height 1363 [was] six 8337 cubits 520 and a span 2239.

    17:5 And [he had] an helmet 3553 of brass 5178 upon his head 7218, and he [was] armed 3847 8803 with a coat 8302 of mail 7193; and the weight 4948 of the coat 8302 [was] five 2568 thousand 505 shekels 8255 of brass 5178.(armed: Heb. clothed)

    17:6 And [he had] greaves 4697 of brass 5178 upon his legs 7272, and a target 3591 of brass 5178 between his shoulders 3802.(target: or, gorget)

    17:7 And the staff 6086 8675 2671 of his spear 2595 [was] like a weaver's 707 8802 beam 4500; and his spear's 2595 head 3852 [weighed] six 8337 hundred 3967 shekels 8255 of iron 1270: and one bearing 5375 8802 a shield 6793 went 1980 8802 before 6440 him.

    17:8 And he stood 5975 8799 and cried 7121 8799 unto the armies 4634 of Israel 3478, and said 559 8799 unto them, Why are ye come out 3318 8799 to set [your] battle 4421 in array 6186 8800? [am] not I a Philistine 6430, and ye servants 5650 to Saul 7586? choose 1262 8798 you a man 376 for you, and let him come down 3381 8799 to me.

    17:9 If he be able 3201 8799 to fight 3898 8736 with me, and to kill 5221 8689 me, then will we be your servants 5650: but if I prevail 3201 8799 against him, and kill 5221 8689 him, then shall ye be our servants 5650, and serve 5647 8804 us.

    17:10 And the Philistine 6430 said 559 8799, I defy 2778 8765 the armies 4634 of Israel 3478 this day 3117; give 5414 8798 me a man 376, that we may fight 3898 8735 together 3162.

    17:11 When Saul 7586 and all Israel 3478 heard 8085 8799 those words 1697 of the Philistine 6430, they were dismayed 2865 8735, and greatly 3966 afraid 3372 8799.

    17:12 Now David 1732 [was] the son 1121 of that Ephrathite 376 673 of Bethlehemjudah 1035 3063, whose name 8034 [was] Jesse 3448; and he had eight 8083 sons 1121: and the man 376 went 935 8804 among men 582 [for] an old man 2204 8804 in the days 3117 of Saul 7586.

    17:13 And the three 7969 eldest 1419 sons 1121 of Jesse 3448 went 3212 8799 [and] followed 310 Saul 7586 to the battle 4421: and the names 8034 of his three 7969 sons 1121 that went 1980 8804 to the battle 4421 [were] Eliab 446 the firstborn 1060, and next 4932 unto him Abinadab 41, and the third 7992 Shammah 8048.

    17:14 And David 1732 [was] the youngest 6996: and the three 7969 eldest 1419 followed 1980 8804 310 Saul 7586.

    17:15 But David 1732 went 1980 8802 and returned 7725 8802 from Saul 7586 to feed 7462 8800 his father's 1 sheep 6629 at Bethlehem 1035.

    17:16 And the Philistine 6430 drew near 5066 8799 morning 7925 8687 and evening 6150 8687, and presented 3320 8691 himself forty 705 days 3117.

    17:17 And Jesse 3448 said 559 8799 unto David 1732 his son 1121, Take 3947 8798 now for thy brethren 251 an ephah 374 of this 2088 parched 7039 [corn], and these ten 6235 loaves 3899, and run 7323 8685 to the camp 4264 to thy brethren 251;

    17:18 And carry 935 8686 these ten 6235 cheeses 2461 2757 unto the captain 8269 of [their] thousand 505, and look 6485 8799 how thy brethren 251 fare 7965, and take 3947 8799 their pledge 6161.(cheeses: Heb. cheeses of milk)(of…: Heb. of a thousand)

    17:19 Now Saul 7586, and they, and all the men 376 of Israel 3478, [were] in the valley 6010 of Elah 425, fighting 3898 8737 with the Philistines 6430.

    17:20 And David 1732 rose up early 7925 8686 in the morning 1242, and left 5203 8799 the sheep 6629 with a keeper 8104 8802, and took 5375 8799, and went 3212 8799, as Jesse 3448 had commanded 6680 8765 him; and he came 935 8799 to the trench 4570, as the host 2428 was going forth 3318 8802 to the fight 4634, and shouted 7321 8689 for the battle 4421.(trench: or, place of the carriage)(fight: or, battle array, or, place of fight)

    17:21 For Israel 3478 and the Philistines 6430 had put the battle in array 6186 8799, army 4634 against 7125 8800 army 4634.

    17:22 And David 1732 left 5203 8799 his carriage 3627 in the hand 3027 of the keeper 8104 8802 of the carriage 3627, and ran 7323 8799 into the army 4634, and came 935 8799 and saluted 7592 8799 7965 his brethren 251.(his carriage: Heb. the vessels from upon him)(saluted…: Heb. asked his brethren of peace)

    17:23 And as he talked 1696 8764 with them, behold, there came up 5927 8802 the champion 376 1143, the Philistine 6430 of Gath 1661, Goliath 1555 by name 8034, out of the armies 4634 8675 4630 of the Philistines 6430, and spake 1696 8762 according to the same 428 words 1697: and David 1732 heard 8085 8799 [them].

    17:24 And all the men 376 of Israel 3478, when they saw 7200 8800 the man 376, fled 5127 8799 from him 6440, and were sore 3966 afraid 3372 8799.(from…: Heb. from his face)

    17:25 And the men 376 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799, Have ye seen 7200 8804 this man 376 that is come up 5927 8802? surely to defy 2778 8763 Israel 3478 is he come up 5927 8802: and it shall be, [that] the man 376 who killeth 5221 8686 him, the king 4428 will enrich 6238 8686 him with great 1419 riches 6239, and will give 5414 8799 him his daughter 1323, and make 6213 8799 his father's 1 house 1004 free 2670 in Israel 3478.

    17:26 And David 1732 spake 559 8799 to the men 582 that stood 5975 8802 by him, saying 559 8800, What shall be done 6213 8735 to the man 376 that killeth 5221 8686 this 1975 Philistine 6430, and taketh away 5493 8689 the reproach 2781 from Israel 3478? for who [is] this uncircumcised 6189 Philistine 6430, that he should defy 2778 8765 the armies 4634 of the living 2416 God 430?

    17:27 And the people 5971 answered 559 8799 him after this manner 1697, saying 559 8800, So shall it be done 6213 8735 to the man 376 that killeth 5221 8686 him.

    17:28 And Eliab 446 his eldest 1419 brother 251 heard 8085 8799 when he spake 1696 8763 unto the men 582; and Eliab's 446 anger 639 was kindled 2734 8799 against David 1732, and he said 559 8799, Why camest thou down 3381 8804 hither? and with whom hast thou left 5203 8804 those 2007 few 4592 sheep 6629 in the wilderness 4057? I know 3045 8804 thy pride 2087, and the naughtiness 7455 of thine heart 3824; for thou art come down 3381 8804 that thou mightest see 7200 8800 the battle 4421.

    17:29 And David 1732 said 559 8799, What have I now done 6213 8804? [Is there] not a cause 1697?

    17:30 And he turned 5437 8735 from him 681 toward 4136 another 312, and spake 559 8799 after the same manner 1697: and the people 5971 answered 1697 him again 7725 8686 after the former 7223 manner 1697.(manner: Heb. word)

    17:31 And when the words 1697 were heard 8085 8735 which David 1732 spake 1696 8765, they rehearsed 5046 8686 [them] before 6440 Saul 7586: and he sent 3947 8799 for him.(sent…: Heb. took him)

    17:32 And David 1732 said 559 8799 to Saul 7586, Let no man's 120 heart 3820 fail 5307 8799 because of him; thy servant 5650 will go 3212 8799 and fight 3898 8738 with this Philistine 6430.

    17:33 And Saul 7586 said 559 8799 to David 1732, Thou art not able 3201 8799 to go 3212 8800 against this Philistine 6430 to fight 3898 8736 with him: for thou [art but] a youth 5288, and he a man 376 of war 4421 from his youth 5271.

    17:34 And David 1732 said 559 8799 unto Saul 7586, Thy servant 5650 kept 7462 8802 his father's 1 sheep 6629, and there came 935 8804 a lion 738, and a bear 1677, and took 5375 8804 a lamb 7716 8675 2089 out of the flock 5739:(lamb: or, kid)

    17:35 And I went out 3318 8804 after 310 him, and smote 5221 8689 him, and delivered 5337 8689 [it] out of his mouth 6310: and when he arose 6965 8799 against me, I caught 2388 8689 [him] by his beard 2206, and smote 5221 8689 him, and slew 4191 8689 him.

    17:36 Thy servant 5650 slew 5221 8689 both the lion 738 and the bear 1677: and this uncircumcised 6189 Philistine 6430 shall be as one 259 of them, seeing he hath defied 2778 8765 the armies 4634 of the living 2416 God 430.

    17:37 David 1732 said 559 8799 moreover, The LORD 3068 that delivered 5337 8689 me out of the paw 3027 of the lion 738, and out of the paw 3027 of the bear 1677, he will deliver 5337 8686 me out of the hand 3027 of this Philistine 6430. And Saul 7586 said 559 8799 unto David 1732, Go 3212 8798, and the LORD 3068 be with thee.

    17:38 And Saul 7586 armed 3847 8686 David 1732 with his armour 4055, and he put 5414 8804 an helmet 6959 of brass 5178 upon his head 7218; also he armed 3847 8686 him with a coat of mail 8302.(armed David…: Heb. clothed David with his clothes)

    17:39 And David 1732 girded 2296 8799 his sword 2719 upon his armour 4055, and he assayed 2974 8686 to go 3212 8800; for he had not proved 5254 8765 [it]. And David 1732 said 559 8799 unto Saul 7586, I cannot 3201 8799 go 3212 8800 with these; for I have not proved 5254 8765 [them]. And David 1732 put 5493 8686 them off him.

    17:40 And he took 3947 8799 his staff 4731 in his hand 3027, and chose 977 8799 him five 2568 smooth 2512 stones 68 out of the brook 5158, and put 7760 8799 them in a shepherd's 7462 8802 bag 3627 which he had, even in a scrip 3219; and his sling 7050 [was] in his hand 3027: and he drew near 5066 8799 to the Philistine 6430.(brook: or, valley)(bag: Heb. vessel)

    17:41 And the Philistine 6430 came 3212 8799 on 1980 8802 and drew near 7131 unto David 1732; and the man 376 that bare 5375 8802 the shield 6793 [went] before 6440 him.

    17:42 And when the Philistine 6430 looked about 5027 8686, and saw 7200 8799 David 1732, he disdained 959 8799 him: for he was [but] a youth 5288, and ruddy 132, and of a fair 3303 countenance 4758.

    17:43 And the Philistine 6430 said 559 8799 unto David 1732, [Am] I a dog 3611, that thou comest 935 8802 to me with staves 4731? And the Philistine 6430 cursed 7043 8762 David 1732 by his gods 430.

    17:44 And the Philistine 6430 said 559 8799 to David 1732, Come 3212 8798 to me, and I will give 5414 8799 thy flesh 1320 unto the fowls 5775 of the air 8064, and to the beasts 929 of the field 7704.

    17:45 Then said 559 8799 David 1732 to the Philistine 6430, Thou comest 935 8802 to me with a sword 2719, and with a spear 2595, and with a shield 3591: but I come 935 8802 to thee in the name 8034 of the LORD 3068 of hosts 6635, the God 430 of the armies 4634 of Israel 3478, whom thou hast defied 2778 8765.

    17:46 This day 3117 will the LORD 3068 deliver 5462 8762 thee into mine hand 3027; and I will smite 5221 8689 thee, and take 5493 8689 thine head 7218 from thee; and I will give 5414 8804 the carcases 6297 of the host 4264 of the Philistines 6430 this day 3117 unto the fowls 5775 of the air 8064, and to the wild beasts 2416 of the earth 776; that all the earth 776 may know 3045 8799 that there is 3426 a God 430 in Israel 3478.(deliver…: Heb. shut thee up)

    17:47 And all this assembly 6951 shall know 3045 8799 that the LORD 3068 saveth 3467 8686 not with sword 2719 and spear 2595: for the battle 4421 [is] the LORD'S 3068, and he will give 5414 8804 you into our hands 3027.

    17:48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine 6430 arose 6965 8804, and came 3212 8799 and drew nigh 7126 8799 to meet 7125 8800 David 1732, that David 1732 hasted 4116 8762, and ran 7323 8799 toward the army 4634 to meet 7125 8800 the Philistine 6430.

    17:49 And David 1732 put 7971 8799 his hand 3027 in his bag 3627, and took 3947 8799 thence a stone 68, and slang 7049 8762 [it], and smote 5221 8686 the Philistine 6430 in his forehead 4696, that the stone 68 sunk 2883 8799 into his forehead 4696; and he fell 5307 8799 upon his face 6440 to the earth 776.

    17:50 So David 1732 prevailed 2388 8799 over 4480 the Philistine 6430 with a sling 7050 and with a stone 68, and smote 5221 8686 the Philistine 6430, and slew 4191 8686 him; but [there was] no sword 2719 in the hand 3027 of David 1732.

    17:51 Therefore David 1732 ran 7323 8799, and stood 5975 8799 upon the Philistine 6430, and took 3947 8799 his sword 2719, and drew 8025 8799 it out of the sheath 8593 thereof, and slew 4191 8787 him, and cut off 3772 8799 his head 7218 therewith. And when the Philistines 6430 saw 7200 8799 their champion 1368 was dead 4191 8804, they fled 5127 8799.

    17:52 And the men 582 of Israel 3478 and of Judah 3063 arose 6965 8799, and shouted 7321 8686, and pursued 7291 8799 the Philistines 6430, until thou come 935 8800 to the valley 1516, and to the gates 8179 of Ekron 6138. And the wounded 2491 of the Philistines 6430 fell down 5307 8799 by the way 1870 to Shaaraim 8189, even unto Gath 1661, and unto Ekron 6138.

    17:53 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 returned 7725 8799 from chasing 1814 8800 after 310 the Philistines 6430, and they spoiled 8155 8799 their tents 4264.

    17:54 And David 1732 took 3947 8799 the head 7218 of the Philistine 6430, and brought 935 8686 it to Jerusalem 3389; but he put 7760 8804 his armour 3627 in his tent 168.

    17:55 And when Saul 7586 saw 7200 8800 David 1732 go forth 3318 8802 against 7125 8800 the Philistine 6430, he said 559 8804 unto Abner 74, the captain 8269 of the host 6635, Abner 74, whose son 1121 [is] this youth 5288? And Abner 74 said 559 8799, [As] thy soul 5315 liveth 2416, O king 4428, I cannot 518 tell 3045 8804.

    17:56 And the king 4428 said 559 8799, Enquire 7592 8798 thou whose son 1121 the stripling 5958 [is].

    17:57 And as David 1732 returned 7725 8800 from the slaughter 5221 8687 of the Philistine 6430, Abner 74 took 3947 8799 him, and brought 935 8686 him before 6440 Saul 7586 with the head 7218 of the Philistine 6430 in his hand 3027.

    17:58 And Saul 7586 said 559 8799 to him, Whose son 1121 [art] thou, [thou] young man 5288? And David 1732 answered 559 8799, I [am] the son 1121 of thy servant 5650 Jesse 3448 the Bethlehemite 1022.
