Chapter 17

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 4. And there went out
    H3318
    a champion
    H1143
    out
    H376
    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
  5. 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
  6. 6. And he had greaves
    H4697
    of brass
    H5178
    upon his legs,
    H7272
    and a target
    H3591
    of brass
    H5178
    between his shoulders.
    H3802
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 12. Now David
    H1732
    was the son
    H1121
    of that Ephrathite
    H673
    of
    H376
    Bethlehemjudah,
    H3063
    H1035
    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
  13. 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
  14. 14. And David
    H1732
    was the youngest:
    H6996
    and the three
    H7969
    eldest
    H1419
    followed
    H1980
    H310
    Saul.
    H7586
  15. 15. But David
    H1732
    went
    H1980
    and returned
    H7725
    from Saul
    H7586
    to feed
    H7462
    his father's
    H1
    sheep
    H6629
    at Bethlehem.
    H1035
  16. 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
  18. 18. And carry
    H935
    these ten
    H6235
    cheeses
    H2757
    unto
    H2461
    the captain
    H8269
    of their thousand,
    H505
    and look
    H6485
    how thy brethren
    H251
    fare,
    H7965
    and take
    H3947
    their pledge.
    H6161
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 21. For Israel
    H3478
    and the Philistines
    H6430
    had put the battle in array,
    H6186
    army
    H4634
    against
    H7125
    army.
    H4634
  22. 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
  23. 23. And as he talked
    H1696
    with them, behold, there came up
    H5927
    the champion,
    H1143
    H376
    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.
  24. 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
  25. 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
  26. 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
  27. 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.
  28. 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
  29. 29. And David
    H1732
    said,
    H559
    What have I now done?
    H6213
    Is there not a cause?
    H1697
  30. 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
  31. 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.
  32. 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
  33. 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
  34. 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
  35. 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.
  36. 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
  37. 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.
  38. 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
  39. 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.
  40. 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
  41. 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.
  42. 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
  43. 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
  44. 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
  45. 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
  46. 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
  47. 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
  48. 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
  49. 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
  50. 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
  51. 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
  52. 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
  53. 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
  54. 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
  55. 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
  56. 56. And the king
    H4428
    said,
    H559
    Enquire
    H7592
    thou whose son
    H1121
    the stripling
    H5958
    is.
  57. 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
  58. 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.
