David Already Met King Saul

September 5, 2014 Leave a comment

Earlier in the day, as David was choosing his stones and bravely approaching the Philistine, Saul asked his cousin Abner, who was general of the army, where David came from.

Saul: Abner, who is that young man’s father?

Abner: I swear to you, my king, I don’t know.

Saul: Well, find out who his father is.

When David returned from killing the Philistine, Abner brought him in front of Saul holding the head of the Philistine.

Saul: Who is your father, young man?

David: I am the son of your servant Jesse of Bethlehem (vv. 55-58).
