“And David said unto Saul, Who am I? and what is my life, or my father's family in Israel, that I should be son in law to the king?”
King James Version (KJV)
18:18 What is my life - How little is my life worth, that by the exposing of that to some hazard, I should purchase a king's daughter! In these expressions David sheweth not only his humility, but also his wisdom, in discovering so deep a sense of his own meanness, that Saul might see how far he was from aspiring at the kingdom.
