1 Samuel 16:4-13 NLT
4 So Samuel did as the Lord instructed. When he
arrived at Bethlehem, the elders of the town
came trembling to meet him. “What’s wrong?”
they asked. “Do you come in peace?”
5 “Yes,” Samuel replied. “I have come to sacrifice
to the Lord. Purify yourselves and come with me
to the sacrifice.” Then Samuel performed the
purification rite for Jesse and his sons and invited
them to the sacrifice, too.
6 When they arrived, Samuel took one look at Eliab
and thought, “Surely this is the Lord’s anointed!”
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his
appearance or height, for I have rejected him.
The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see
them. People judge by outward appearance, but
the Lord looks at the heart.”
8 Then Jesse told his son Abinadab to step forward
and walk in front of Samuel. But Samuel said, “This
is not the one the Lord has chosen.”
9 Next Jesse summoned Shimea, but Samuel said,
“Neither is this the one the Lord has chosen.”
10 In the same way all seven of Jesse’s sons were
presented to Samuel. But Samuel said to Jesse,
“The Lord has not chosen any of these.”
11 Then Samuel asked, “Are these all the sons you
have?” “There is still the youngest,” Jesse replied.
“But he’s out in the fields watching the sheep and
goats.” “Send for him at once,” Samuel said. “We
will not sit down to eat until he arrives.”
12 So Jesse sent for him. He was dark and
handsome, with beautiful eyes. And the Lord said,
“This is the one; anoint him.”
13 So as David stood there among his brothers,
Samuel took the flask of olive oil he had brought
and anointed David with the oil. And the Spirit of
the Lord came powerfully upon David from that
day on. Then Samuel returned to Ramah.
1 Samuel 17:32-37 NLT
32 “Don’t worry about this Philistine,” David told Saul.
“I’ll go fight him!”
33 “Don’t be ridiculous!” Saul replied. “There’s no
way you can fight this Philistine and possibly win!
You’re only a boy, and he’s been a man of war
since his youth.”
34 But David persisted. “I have been taking care of
my father’s sheep and goats,” he said. “When
a lion or a bear comes to steal a lamb from the
35 I go after it with a club and rescue the lamb from
its mouth. If the animal turns on me, I catch it by
the jaw and club it to death.
36 I have done this to both lions and bears, and I’ll
do it to this pagan Philistine, too, for he has defied
