g“Saul has slain his thousands,
And David his ten thousands.”
8 Then Saul was very angry, and the saying hdispleased him; and he said, “They have ascribed to David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed only thousands. Now what more can he have but ithe kingdom?” 9 So Saul 4eyed David from that day forward.
