= Saul & Agag
= David Anointed
1 Samuel 17:1–3 ESV
1 Now the Philistines gathered their armies for battle. And they were gathered at Socoh, which belongs to Judah, and encamped between Socoh and Azekah, in Ephes-dammim. 2 And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered, and encamped in the Valley of Elah, and drew up in line of battle against the Philistines. 3 And the Philistines stood on the mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on the mountain on the other side, with a valley between them.
This was a long time coming...
Picture the setting
1 Sam 17.4-
1 Samuel 17:4–7 ESV
4 And there came out from the camp of the Philistines a champion named Goliath of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. 5 He had a helmet of bronze on his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail, and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of bronze. 6 And he had bronze armor on his legs, and a javelin of bronze slung between his shoulders. 7 The shaft of his spear was like a weaver’s beam, and his spear’s head weighed six hundred shekels of iron. And his shield-bearer went before him.
Champion = used here - specialized soldier of 1/1 combat
Almost 10 ft tall = 9.9
5k Shekels = 120-125 lbs
1 Samuel 17:4–6 ESV
4 And there came out from the camp of the Philistines a champion named Goliath of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. 5 He had a helmet of bronze on his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail, and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of bronze. 6 And he had bronze armor on his legs, and a javelin of bronze slung between his shoulders.
About 15lbs

Built like a tank and looked like one too
W/ a sidekick
Came and Shouted
[8-10] = Goliath - come fight me / why are you here? / defeat me and victory is yours!
Do you have something in your life that looks un-defeat-able?
1 Samuel 17:11 ESV
11 When Saul and all Israel heard these words of the Philistine, they were dismayed and greatly afraid.
1 Samuel 17:1–2 ESV
1 Now the Philistines gathered their armies for battle. And they were gathered at Socoh, which belongs to Judah, and encamped between Socoh and Azekah, in Ephes-dammim. 2 And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered, and encamped in the Valley of Elah, and drew up in line of battle against the Philistines.
Head and Shoulders
1 Sam 17.11
farther to hang head in shame
King - for this reason!!!
[12-15] David - brothers - sheep
Story turns to David
son of Jesse - 1/8 - 3 old at battle
back forth - sheep
1 Samuel 17:16 ESV
16 For forty days the Philistine came forward and took his stand, morning and evening.
#40 Bible
38 days too long
When are you going to deal with the issue?
1 Samuel 17:17–18 ESV
17 And Jesse said to David his son, “Take for your brothers an ephah of this parched grain, and these ten loaves, and carry them quickly to the camp to your brothers. 18 Also take these ten cheeses to the commander of their thousand. See if your brothers are well, and bring some token from them.”
1 Sam 17.
Concerned Father
such detail …!
[19-22] = David - early - came - greeted brothers
1 Samuel 17:23 ESV
23 As he talked with them, behold, the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, came up out of the ranks of the Philistines and spoke the same words as before. And David heard him.
Israelite Men
flee
David
Israelites = afraid - fled away
who is going to do something about this?
what will be the reward for the man who deals with this?
uncircumcised / living God = covenant / false Idols - Dagon?
1 Samuel 17:26 ESV
26 And David said to the men who stood by him, “What shall be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?”
Israelite Men
riches / position = daughter in marriage
1 Sam 17.
father = no taxes / freedom
1 Samuel 17:25 ESV
25 And the men of Israel said, “Have you seen this man who has come up? Surely he has come up to defy Israel. And the king will enrich the man who kills him with great riches and will give him his daughter and make his father’s house free in Israel.”
David’s Brother
Angry - what are you doing and why are you here...
1 Sam
evil intentions - see the battle
entertained by violence
Forgot he was anointed? / Baby brother / aggravated @ self
David’s Response
Whats the matter with you, i was just asking a question, chill out!!
Do not be like Eliab! How do you deal with questions? Are you more like David or Eliab?
Saul Hears
Someone is asking about fighting Goliath
1 Samuel 17:28 ESV
28 Now Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spoke to the men. And Eliab’s anger was kindled against David, and he said, “Why have you come down? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your presumption and the evil of your heart, for you have come down to see the battle.”
David kept asking - Saul heard and sent
1 Samuel 17:32–37 ESV
32 And David said to Saul, “Let no man’s heart fail because of him. Your servant will go and fight with this Philistine.” 33 And Saul said to David, “You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him, for you are but a youth, and he has been a man of war from his youth.” 34 But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep sheep for his father. And when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb from the flock, 35 I went after him and struck him and delivered it out of his mouth. And if he arose against me, I caught him by his beard and struck him and killed him. 36 Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God.” 37 And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!”
David & Saul
1 Sam 17.32-

hardened vet and your a kid
Dorthy - Wizard of Oz - David… !
Lions and Bears who really cares I have the Lord on my side
v36 - this guy is no different then a dumb animal
Go - LORD be with you!!
Talk about this section of the story
1 Samuel 17:38 ESV
38 Then Saul clothed David with his armor. He put a helmet of bronze on his head and clothed him with a coat of mail,
[LORD be with you but insurance is nice!!]
Saul’s Desire?
responsible for victory?
strength in creature / creator
blow for blow / tit for tat
.38
Where are you most tempted to follow God 90% or to make up the difference or to earn it on your terms?
V39 - David tries the armor and says NO he is not used to it
Davids Armor =
belt of truth
breastplate of righteousness
ready shoes of the gospel
shield of faith
helmet of salvation
sword of the spirit
Who’s armor do you wanna wear?
1 Samuel 17:40 ESV
40 Then he took his staff in his hand and chose five smooth stones from the brook and put them in his shepherd’s pouch. His sling was in his hand, and he approached the Philistine.
Sticks & Stones
weapons fashioned by God
stones = tennis balls
Levitical law = blasphemy = stoned to death
Shepherds & Soldiers
David
birth
blaspheming god = stoned to death
Jesus
1 Samuel 17:42–44 ESV
42 And when the Philistine looked and saw David, he disdained him, for he was but a youth, ruddy and handsome in appearance. 43 And the Philistine said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks?” And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. 44 The Philistine said to David, “Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the air and to the beasts of the field.”
Power & Pride
David is disdained
“am I a dog” = David said he was a dumb animal… dog < lion / bear!
cursed by his gods
Abraham = cursed will be cursed
Dagon = Ark of the Cov.
flesh to the wildlife = Revelation
Imagine

Michal Jordan vs Me
Albert Einstein vs Me

1 Samuel 17:45–47 ESV
45 Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head. And I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, 47 and that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hand.”

48 When the Philistine arose and came and drew near to meet David, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet the Philistine. 49 And David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone and slung it and struck the Philistine on his forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the ground. 50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. There was no sword in the hand of David. 51 Then David ran and stood over the Philistine and took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him and cut off his head with it. When the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled.

There was no sword in the hand of David. 51 Then David ran and stood over the Philistine and took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him and cut off his head with it.

REWIND
1 Samuel 17:55–58 ESV
55 As soon as Saul saw David go out against the Philistine, he said to Abner, the commander of the army, “Abner, whose son is this youth?” And Abner said, “As your soul lives, O king, I do not know.” 56 And the king said, “Inquire whose son the boy is.” 57 And as soon as David returned from the striking down of the Philistine, Abner took him, and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand. 58 And Saul said to him, “Whose son are you, young man?” And David answered, “I am the son of your servant Jesse the Bethlehemite.”
1 Samuel 18:1–5 ESV
1 As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. 2 And Saul took him that day and would not let him return to his father’s house. 3 Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul. 4 And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was on him and gave it to David, and his armor, and even his sword and his bow and his belt. 5 And David went out and was successful wherever Saul sent him, so that Saul set him over the men of war. And this was good in the sight of all the people and also in the sight of Saul’s servants.
