- 1 Samuel 16:18
- Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite,
that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person,
and the LORD is with him.
- 1 Samuel 17:33
- And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth,
and he a man of war from his youth. ... 38 And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon
his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail. 39 And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go;
for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put
them off him.
