And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his armourbearer .
And Saul sent to Jesse, saying , Let David, I pray thee, stand before me; for he hath found favour in my sight.
And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array ? am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me.
And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying , What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
Therefore David ran , and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead , they fled .
And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying , and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied .
So David went , he and the six hundred men that were with him, and came to the brook Besor, where those that were left behind stayed .
But David pursued , he and four hundred men: for two hundred abode behind , which were so faint that they could not go over the brook Besor.
