Bible Commentary for 1 Samuel 17:34

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 17:34


17:32 Let no man's heart, &c. - It would have reflected upon his prince to say, Let not thy heart fail: therefore he speaks in general terms, Let no man's heart fail. A little shepherd, come but this morning from keeping sheep, has more courage than all the mighty men of Israel! Thus doth God often do great things for his people by the weak things of the world.

17:33 A youth - Not above 20 years old; and a novice, a raw and unexperienced soldier.
