He took his stick in his hand and chose for himself fivesmoothstones from the brook, and put them in the shepherd'sbagwhich he had, even in his pouch, and 1his sling was in his hand ; and he approached the Philistine.
Then the Philistinecame on and approachedDavid, with the shield-bearer in front of him.
When the Philistinelooked and sawDavid, 2he disdained him; for he was but a youth, and 3ruddy, with a handsomeappearance.
The Philistinesaid to David, "4Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks ?" And 5the PhilistinecursedDavid by his gods.
The Philistine also said to David, "Come to me, and I will give your flesh6to the birds of the sky and the beasts of the field."
Then Davidsaid to the Philistine, "You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin, 7but I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have taunted.
46"Thisday the LORD will deliver you up into my hands, and I will strike you down and remove your head from you. And I will give the 8deadbodies of the army of the Philistinesthisday to the birds of the sky and the wildbeasts of the earth, 9that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel,
and that allthisassembly may know that 10the LORD does not deliver by sword or by spear ; 11for the battle is the LORD'S and He will give you into our hands."
