1 Samuel 17

WBT 1 Now the Philistines collected their armies to battle, and were assembled at Shochoh, which [belongeth] to Judah, and encamped between Shochoh and Azekah, in Ephes-dammim. NIV 1 Now the Philistines gathered their forces for war and assembled at Sokoh in Judah. They pitched camp at Ephes Dammim, between Sokoh and Azekah. WBT 2 And Saul and the men of Israel were assembled and encamped by the valley of Elah, and [they] set the battle in array against the Philistines. NIV 2 Saul and the Israelites assembled and camped in the Valley of Elah and drew up their battle line to meet the Philistines. WBT 3 And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and [there was] a valley between them. NIV 3 The Philistines occupied one hill and the Israelites another, with the valley between them. WBT 4 And there went out a champion from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose hight [was] six cubits and a span. NIV 4 A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. His height was six cubits and a span. WBT 5 And [he had] a helmet of brass upon his head, and he [was] armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat [was] five thousand shekels of brass. NIV 5 He had a bronze helmet on his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five thousand shekels ; WBT 6 And [he had] greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders. NIV 6 on his legs he wore bronze greaves, and a bronze javelin was slung on his back. WBT 7 And the staff of his spear [was] like a weaver's beam; and his spear's head [weighed] six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him. NIV 7 His spear shaft was like a weaver’s rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels. His shield bearer went ahead of him. WBT 8 And he stood and cried to the armies of Israel, and said to them, Why have 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. NIV 8 Goliath stood and shouted to the ranks of Israel, “Why do you come out and line up for battle? Am I not a Philistine, and are you not the servants of Saul? Choose a man and have him come down to me. WBT 9 If he shall be able to fight with me, and to kill me, then will we be your servants: but if I shall prevail against him, and kill him, then shall ye be our servants, and serve us. NIV 9 If he is able to fight and kill me, we will become your subjects; but if I overcome him and kill him, you will become our subjects and serve us.” WBT 10 And the Philistine said, I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together. NIV 10 Then the Philistine said, “This day I defy the armies of Israel! Give me a man and let us fight each other.” WBT 11 When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed, and greatly afraid. NIV 11 On hearing the Philistine’s words, Saul and all the Israelites were dismayed and terrified. WBT 12 Now David [was] the son of that Ephrathite of Beth-lehem-judah, whose name [was] Jesse; and he had eight sons: and the man went among men [for] an old man in the days of Saul. NIV 12 Now David was the son of an Ephrathite named Jesse, who was from Bethlehem in Judah. Jesse had eight sons, and in Saul’s time he was very old. WBT 13 And the three eldest sons of Jesse went [and] followed Saul to the battle: and the names of his three sons that went to the battle [were] Eliab the first-born, and next to him Abinadab, and the third Shammah. NIV 13 Jesse’s three oldest sons had followed Saul to the war: The firstborn was Eliab; the second, Abinadab; and the third, Shammah. WBT 14 And David [was] the youngest: and the three eldest followed Saul. NIV 14 David was the youngest. The three oldest followed Saul, WBT 15 But David went and returned from Saul to feed his father's sheep at Beth-lehem. NIV 15 but David went back and forth from Saul to tend his father’s sheep at Bethlehem. WBT 16 And the Philistine drew near morning and evening, and presented himself forty days. NIV 16 For forty days the Philistine came forward every morning and evening and took his stand. WBT 17 And Jesse said to David his son, Take now for thy brethren an ephah of this parched [corn], and these ten loaves, and run to the camp to thy brethren; NIV 17 Now Jesse said to his son David, “Take this ephah of roasted grain and these ten loaves of bread for your brothers and hurry to their camp. WBT 18 And carry these ten cheeses to the captain of [their] thousand, and see how thy brethren fare, and take their pledge. NIV 18 Take along these ten cheeses to the commander of their unit. See how your brothers are and bring back some assurance from them. WBT 19 Now Saul, and they, and all the men of Israel, [were] in the valley of Elah, fighting with the Philistines. NIV 19 They are with Saul and all the men of Israel in the Valley of Elah, fighting against the Philistines.” WBT 20 And David rose early in the morning, and left the sheep with a keeper, and took, and went, as Jesse had commanded him; and he came to the trench, as the host was going forth to the fight, and shouted for the battle. NIV 20 Early in the morning David left the flock in the care of a shepherd, loaded up and set out, as Jesse had directed. He reached the camp as the army was going out to its battle positions, shouting the war cry. WBT 21 For Israel and the Philistines had put the battle in array, army against army. NIV 21 Israel and the Philistines were drawing up their lines facing each other. WBT 22 And David left his furniture in the hand of the keeper of the vessels, and ran into the army, and came and saluted his brethren. NIV 22 David left his things with the keeper of supplies, ran to the battle lines and asked his brothers how they were. WBT 23 And as he talked with them, behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, from the armies of the Philistines, and spoke according to the same words: and David heard [them]. NIV 23 As he was talking with them, Goliath, the Philistine champion from Gath, stepped out from his lines and shouted his usual defiance, and David heard it. WBT 24 And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were exceedingly afraid. NIV 24 Whenever the Israelites saw the man, they all fled from him in great fear. WBT 25 And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that hath come up? surely to defy Israel hath he come: and it shall be, [that] the man who shall kill him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father's house free in Israel. NIV 25 Now the Israelites had been saying, “Do you see how this man keeps coming out? He comes out to defy Israel. The king will give great wealth to the man who kills him. He will also give him his daughter in marriage and will exempt his family from taxes in Israel.” WBT 26 And David spoke 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? NIV 26 David asked the men standing near him, “What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?” WBT 27 And the people answered him after this manner, saying, So shall it be done to the man that killeth him. NIV 27 They repeated to him what they had been saying and told him, “This is what will be done for the man who kills him.” WBT 28 And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spoke to the men; and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thy heart; for thou art come down that thou mayest see the battle. NIV 28 When Eliab, David’s oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he burned with anger at him and asked, “Why have you come down here? And with whom did you leave those few sheep in the wilderness? I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle.” WBT 29 And David said, What have I now done? [Is there] not a cause? NIV 29 “Now what have I done?” said David. “Can’t I even speak?” WBT 30 And he turned from him towards another, and spoke after the same manner: and the people answered him again after the former manner. NIV 30 He then turned away to someone else and brought up the same matter, and the men answered him as before. WBT 31 And when the words were heard which David spoke, they rehearsed [them] before Saul: and he sent for him. NIV 31 What David said was overheard and reported to Saul, and Saul sent for him. WBT 32 And David said to Saul, Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine. NIV 32 David said to Saul, “Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him.” WBT 33 And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou [art but] a youth, and he a man of war from his youth. NIV 33 Saul replied, “You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a young man, and he has been a warrior from his youth.” WBT 34 And David said to Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: NIV 34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, WBT 35 And I went after him, and smote him, and delivered [it] out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught [him] by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. NIV 35 I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. WBT 36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God. NIV 36 Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. WBT 37 David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said to David, Go, and the LORD be with thee. NIV 37 The LORD who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the LORD be with you.” WBT 38 And Saul armed David with his armor, and he put a helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail. NIV 38 Then Saul dressed David in his own tunic. He put a coat of armor on him and a bronze helmet on his head. WBT 39 And David girded his sword upon his armor, and he essayed to go; for he had not proved [it]. And David said to Saul, I cannot go with these, for I have not proved [them]. And David put them off from him. NIV 39 David fastened on his sword over the tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them. “I cannot go in these,” he said to Saul, “because I am not used to them.” So he took them off. WBT 40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling [was] in his hand; and he drew near to the Philistine. NIV 40 Then he took his staff in his hand, chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s bag and, with his sling in his hand, approached the Philistine. WBT 41 And the Philistine advanced and drew near to David; and the man that bore the shield [went] before him. NIV 41 Meanwhile, the Philistine, with his shield bearer in front of him, kept coming closer to David. WBT 42 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance. NIV 42 He looked David over and saw that he was little more than a boy, glowing with health and handsome, and he despised him. WBT 43 And the Philistine said to David, [Am] I a dog, that thou comest to me with staffs? and the Philistine cursed David by his gods. NIV 43 He said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. WBT 44 And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh to the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field. NIV 44 “Come here,” he said, “and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and the wild animals!” WBT 45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. NIV 45 David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. WBT 46 This day will the LORD deliver thee into my hand; and I will smite thee, and take thy head from thee; and I will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day to the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. NIV 46 This day the LORD will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. WBT 47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle [is] the LORD'S, and he will give you into our hands. NIV 47 All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give all of you into our hands.” WBT 48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted, and ran towards the army to meet the Philistine. NIV 48 As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. WBT 49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and hurled it with his sling, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth. NIV 49 Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground. WBT 50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but [there was] no sword in the hand of David. NIV 50 So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him. WBT 51 Therefore David ran and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of its sheath, and slew him, and cut off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled. NIV 51 David ran and stood over him. He took hold of the Philistine’s sword and drew it from the sheath. After he killed him, he cut off his head with the sword. When the Philistines saw that their hero was dead, they turned and ran. WBT 52 And the men of Israel and of Judah arose, and shouted, and pursued the Philistines to the entrance of the valley, and to the gates of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines fell down by the way to Shaaraim, even to Gath, and to Ekron. NIV 52 Then the men of Israel and Judah surged forward with a shout and pursued the Philistines to the entrance of Gath and to the gates of Ekron. Their dead were strewn along the Shaaraim road to Gath and Ekron. WBT 53 And the children of Israel returned from chasing the Philistines, and they plundered their tents. NIV 53 When the Israelites returned from chasing the Philistines, they plundered their camp. WBT 54 And David took the head of the Philistine, and brought it to Jerusalem; but he put his armor in his tent. NIV 54 David took the Philistine’s head and brought it to Jerusalem; he put the Philistine’s weapons in his own tent. WBT 55 And when Saul saw David go forth against the Philistine, he said to Abner the captain of the host, Abner, whose son [is] this youth? And Abner said, [As] thy soul liveth, O king, I cannot tell. NIV 55 As Saul watched David going out to meet the Philistine, he said to Abner, commander of the army, “Abner, whose son is that young man?” Abner replied, “As surely as you live, Your Majesty, I don’t know.” WBT 56 And the king said, Inquire thou whose son the stripling [is]. NIV 56 The king said, “Find out whose son this young man is.” WBT 57 And as David returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, Abner took him, and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand. NIV 57 As soon as David returned from killing the Philistine, Abner took him and brought him before Saul, with David still holding the Philistine’s head. WBT 58 And Saul said to him, Whose son [art] thou, [thou] young man? And David answered, I [am] the son of thy servant Jesse the Beth-lehemite. NIV 58 “Whose son are you, young man?” Saul asked him. David said, “I am the son of your servant Jesse of Bethlehem.”
