The Israelites came back from chasing the Philistines, and they plundered their camp.
David took the head of the Philistine and brought it to Jerusalem; but he put his armor in his tent.
When Saul saw David go out against the Philistine, he said to Abner, the commander of the army, "Abner, whose son is this young man?" Abner said, "As your soul lives, O king, I do not know."
The king said, "Inquire whose son the stripling is."
On David's return from killing the Philistine, Abner took him and brought him before Saul, with the head of the Philistine in his hand.
Saul said to him, "Whose son are you, young man?" And David answered, "I am the son of your servant Jesse the Bethlehemite."
