  1. Now go and attack Amalek. Claim everything they have for God by destroying it. Don’t spare them, but kill men and women, infants and children, cows and sheep, camels and donkeys.”
    1 Samuel 15:3 GW

  2. Then Samuel said, “Is the Lord as delighted with burnt offerings and sacrifices as he would be with your obedience? To follow instructions is better than to sacrifice. To obey is better than sacrificing the fat of rams. The sin of black magic is rebellion. Wickedness and idolatry are arrogance. Because you rejected the Lord’s word, he rejects you as king.”
    1 Samuel 15:22‭-‬23 GW

  3. In addition, the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind, because he is not a mortal who changes his mind.”
    1 Samuel 15:29 GW

  4. Samuel didn’t see Saul again before he died, though Samuel mourned over Saul. And the Lord regretted that he had made Saul king of Israel.
    1 Samuel 15:35 GW

  5. But the Lord told Samuel, “Don’t look at his appearance or how tall he is, because I have rejected him. God does not see as humans see. Humans look at outward appearances, but the Lord looks into the heart.”
    1 Samuel 16:7 GW

  6. So Jesse sent for him. He had a healthy complexion, attractive eyes, and a handsome appearance. The Lord said, “Go ahead, anoint him. He is the one.” Samuel took the flask of olive oil and anointed David in the presence of his brothers. The Lord’s Spirit came over David and stayed with him from that day on. Then Samuel left for Ramah.
    1 Samuel 16:12‭-‬13 GW

  7. One of the officials said, “I know one of Jesse’s sons from Bethlehem who can play well. He’s a courageous man and a warrior. He has a way with words, he is handsome, and the Lord is with him.”
    1 Samuel 16:18 GW

  8. Whenever God’s spirit came to Saul, David took the lyre and strummed a tune. Saul got relief ⌞from his terror⌟ and felt better, and the evil spirit left him.
    1 Samuel 16:23 GW

  9. Each morning and evening for 40 days, the Philistine came forward and made his challenge.
    1 Samuel 17:16 GW

  10. I have killed lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them because he has challenged the army of the living God.” David added, “The Lord, who saved me from the lion and the bear, will save me from this Philistine.” “Go,” Saul told David, “and may the Lord be with you.”
    1 Samuel 17:36‭-‬37 GW

  11. David told the Philistine, “You come to me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of Armies, the God of the army of Israel, whom you have insulted. Today the Lord will hand you over to me. I will strike you down and cut off your head. And this day I will give the dead bodies of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals. The whole world will know that Israel has a God. Then everyone gathered here will know that the Lord can save without sword or spear, because the Lord determines every battle’s outcome. He will hand all of you over to us.”
    1 Samuel 17:45‭-‬47 GW

  12. So using ⌞only⌟ a sling and a stone, David proved to be stronger than the Philistine. David struck down and killed the Philistine, even though David didn’t have a sword in his hand. David ran and stood over the Philistine. He took Goliath’s sword, pulled it out of its sheath, and made certain the Philistine was dead by cutting off his head. When the Philistines saw their hero had been killed, they fled.
    1 Samuel 17:50‭-‬51 GW

  13. Arise, O God! Judge the earth, because all the nations belong to you.
    Psalms 82:8 GW
