Text Commentary

This psalm is ascribed to David as his own composition (though it is outside the number a Gk he ), after he had fought in single combat with Goliath.

1

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

2

My hands made a harp; my fingers fashioned a lyre. 3 And who will tell my Lord? The Lord himself; it is he who hears. b Meaning of Gk uncertain

4

It was he who sent his messenger c Or to remain in camp and took me from my father's sheep, and anointed me with his anointing oil. 5 My brothers were handsome and tall, but the Lord was not pleased with them. 6 I went out to meet the Philistine, a Gk for brothers and he cursed me by his idols. 7 But I drew his own sword; I beheaded him, and took away disgrace from the people of Israel.

Notes:

c Gk he

a Meaning of Gk uncertain
