42 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and hruddy, and of a fair countenance. 43 And the Philistine said unto David, iAm I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. 44 And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field. 45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a kshield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast ldefied. 46 This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give mthe carcases of the host of the Philistines this day nunto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; othat all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord psaveth not with sword and spear: for qthe battle is the Lord’s, and rhe will give you into our hands.
