So Davidaroseearly in the morning and left the flock with a keeper and took the supplies and went as Jesse had commanded him. And he came to the 1circle of the camp while the army was going out in battlearrayshouting the warcry.
21Israel and the Philistinesdrew up in battle array, armyagainstarmy.
Then Davidleft his 2baggage in the acare of the baggagekeeper, and ran to the battleline and entered in order to greet his brothers.
As he was talking with them, behold, the champion , the Philistine from GathnamedGoliath, was coming up from the army of the Philistines, and he spoke3thesesamewords ; and Davidheard them.
When all the men of Israelsaw the man, they fled from him and were greatlyafraid.
The men of Israelsaid, "Have you seenthisman who is coming up? Surely he is coming up to defyIsrael. And it will be that the king will enrich the manwhokills him with greatriches and 4will give him his daughter and make his father'shousebfree in Israel."
Then Davidspoke to the men who were standing by him, saying, "What will be done for the manwhokillsthisPhilistine and takesaway5the reproach from Israel ? For who is this6uncircumcisedPhilistine, that he should 7taunt the armies of 8the livingGod ?"
The peoplecanswered him in accord with thisword, saying, "9Thus it will be done for the manwhokills him."
Now Eliab his oldestbrotherheard when he spoke to the men ; and 10Eliab'sangerburned against David and he said, "Why have you comedown ? And with whom have you leftthosefewsheep in the wilderness ? I know your insolence and the wickedness of your heart ; for you have comedown in order to see the battle."
But Davidsaid, "What have I donenow ? Was it not just a dquestion ?"
Then he turnedeaway from him to another and 11said the samething ; and the peopleanswered the samething as fbefore.
