Reading Guide

This psalm is ascribed to David as his own composition (though it is outside the number a Other ancient authorities add of the one hundred fifty (psalms) ), after he had fought in single combat with Goliath.

1I was small among my brothers, and the youngest in my father's house; I tended my father's sheep.

2My hands made a harp; my fingers fashioned a lyre.

3And who will tell my Lord? The Lord himself; it is he who hears. b Other ancient authorities add everything; others add me; others read who will hear me

4It was he who sent his messenger c Or angel and took me from my father's sheep, and anointed me with his anointing oil.

5My brothers were handsome and tall, but the Lord was not pleased with them.

6I went out to meet the Philistine, d Or foreigner and he cursed me by his idols.

7But I drew his own sword; I beheaded him, and took away disgrace from the people of Israel.
